A letter from Simon:
Dear Chip Saver,
You may have seen ‘ChipLead’ advertised today… My hilarious team had a little joke for April fools and, hopefully, it attracted some attention. Joking aside, I do have a genuine announcement today, and it’s big.
Tomorrow is the start of our Chip 2.0 roll-out, the new and improved version of Chip.
I couldn’t be more proud of the team who have built, tried and tested the new app. It has not been easy. There have been some early starts and late nights, but we are now ready to ship the new app to our 100,000+ savers. Our 2,500 beta testers also deserve a mention, your feedback has been invaluable, we really couldn’t have done it without you.
What is Chip 2.0?
Chip 2.0 is our shiny redesign of the app. We’ve kept the features you know and love, and added in some great new ones too, including... same day saves. You won't see all the new features immediately, they’ll be gradually unlocked in the coming weeks and months.
We’re rolling out the new app gradually from Tuesday 2nd April. The rollout will last up to 10 days. So if you don’t get the new app straight away, sit tight, it’s on its way.
What do I have to do?
If apps automatically update on your phone, you won't have to do anything. If they don’t, check your phone’s app/play store for the shiny new version of Chip.
Your Chip account will be the same as it is now, so you don’t need to do anything apart from logging in and having a play with the new app.
We’ve put together a handy guide to Chip 2.0 if you’d like to know more. It should answer most questions, but you can also reply to this email or visit live chat in-app.
Thank you for your amazing support,
CEO & Founder
