Starling Bank adds free virtual cards and deeper spending analysis

Neobank Starling is introducing virtual cards for its customers free of charge, which will let users better track and control their spending.

The cards will be linked with a customer’s Saving Space in the Starling app, essentially a segregated pot of money, and then the unique card number, expiry date and CVV can be used to sign up for, say, ‘Subscriptions’, helping to isolate that expenditure.

Starling’s virtual cards come in five different colours, and can also be added to mobile wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay for use on the high street.
