A mixed experience

The managed account concept is good and allows us to manage our bills every month and not worry about them. However customer experience could be much improved. Have spent too long waiting on phone to speak to an advisor and recent upgrade was a disaster although can see some benefits from it. Could not get access to our account for 4 days so had no idea how much money we had and some people had even worse problems and could not access cash they had paid in.

I've been with this bank for just under 5 years now and although I don't like paying a monthly fee, it's an excellent way to manage my money. I know bills will be paid and if there is ever a problem I can ring up and they will try to help

Our review of Think Money Current Account Plus

Think Money is a lender based in Manchester who created the Think Money managed current accounts as well as loans. The account was created to help users manage their finances and over 10 years, has hit 100,000 account holders. 

Once you've opened an account, paid in your income and waited three months, you can get a credit facility for up to £400 for up to 30 days. Your account can be accessed and controlled online and you can pay in money at over 11,000 Post Office Branches. There are no hidden fees or charges and you'll have access to UK-based money managers, helping you to keep on top of your outgoings to help improve your credit score. 

However, the current account does charge £10 for single use and £15 for joint bank accounts per month, which can be fairly pricey but if you haven't been accepted for mainstream bank accounts, this could be a good option to get you started. If you do apply for the Current Account Plus credit facility, this is a short-term loan option so naturally, the representative APR is fairly high at 1077.4%. However, you cannot be charged more than 0.8% a day. 

The usual warnings for short-term loans apply and they should only be used in emergencies. If you're unsure you'll be able to make the monthly repayments then you may want to consider other alternatives. Think Money has very mixed reviews, mainly issues with contacting customer service and having to wait a while but this may have been sorted as more recent reviews compliment the fast service and application process. 

Overall verdict: If you struggle with managing your finances, want to improve your credit score and may sometimes need the safety net of a credit facility, then Think Money could be for you. However, there are loans out there that at a much cheaper rate so make sure you compare your options.
