Got an email today with free card available again. Excellent for send and receiving cash along with cheaper FX when abroad.

Does anyone know if you can you transfer from your Revolut account to a foreign bank account for free?
I prefer N26, they have a free card too at the moment and it's contactless too. All around a better product than revolut plus don't need to worry about them being based in London.
You'll always pay some fee for transferring to a bank outside the EU I think.
I'm trying to pay
What if the person I'm transferring to signed up to Revolut with their bank card. Can I send them and then they transfer from Revolut to their non-EU bank account for free?
Can someone explain to me what the benefit of one of these cards/services is?
The main benefit is that if you pay for something in a foreign currency, you get the inter-bank rate rather than MasterCard or Visa charging a hefty %. You can also take (limited) money out at an ATM abroad for free. That saves you ordering money from a bank and paying commission and a crap rate. Finally, you can purchase money in various currencies in advance all at the inter-bank rate. That allows you lock in a rate in advance if you need.
I got married abroad and paid for everything with my Revolut card. It literally saved me hundreds of € in commission fees. That's probably an extreme example but if you shop on amazon.co.uk in any way frequently, you'll save a couple of € per transaction. If you're a regular traveller, it's a no-brainer.

Is it possible to put cash on these rather than bank transfer. Could be handy in a rush to the airport scenario.
You can top it up yes from other debit cards. There is a transfers or top up option.
But not from cash. It's not like buying a top up for a phone for example.
How do I get a free card?
Yes you can do this, what country are you trying to transfer to?
No, can't top up using cash.
