Revolut Shops - Cashback with In-App Purchases - 3% with Amazon + other retailers



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,983 ✭✭✭ Yggr of Asgard

    I still think Amazon is targeted because I can't find it either.

    But recently shops drop in and out from day to day, I think the AI is now determining what to show.

    Also on those which do not have a tracking cookie (i.e. which are giving cashback via the merchant identifier) you can use coupons at the site in my experience (and even some other tracking cookies like AerLingus Avios) while on the ones with tracking cookie all bets are off once you enter a coupon.

    Looking to buy a new Samsung phone. Any cashback from Samsung Ireland please?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,392 ✭✭✭ JackieChang

    Has anybody managed to get the pay in 3 thing working?

    I've been denied three times now. I have a decent salary. My linked PTSB account is only about 4 months old (switched recently from KBC). Could that be the issue?

    I asked them and they're not allowed to tell us the rules.

    Please no preaching on why credit is bad.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,983 ✭✭✭ Yggr of Asgard

    From what I gather, PTSB via openbanking is not making it clear who the sender of funds is, hence the Revolut AI can't easily identify your Salary.

    In the Revolut App go into Analytics and look into your Money In section, check if your Salary shows up as from the company or if it instead shows up a transfer in your own name.

    There is a similar problem for loans, Revolut can't explain, somehow the classification/sender info from PTSB is not always reliable and hence creates the impression you don't have an income.

    This is based on my own opinion!

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,983 ✭✭✭ Yggr of Asgard

    Yes, up to 3% depending on your plan but you might be better off to use one of those EPP links for Samsung, those discounts are usually better than cashback.

    Thanks for the EPP link. Does it offer 15% discount without any sort of membership?

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,983 ✭✭✭ Yggr of Asgard

    Yup, once you register you will see those prices, now it's not always cheaper than on amazon.[] so check around.

  • Registered Users Posts: 431 ✭✭ nephster

    Thanks for that - I'm with PTSB and ineligible for loans and the pay-in-three facility and, yup, my salary payments are listed from me as opposed to my employer so Revolut thinks i have no salary. Why am I not surprised this is PTSB's fault?

    That said, my spouse - who earns a third of what I do and is also with PTSB, does seem to be eligible, so go figure :)

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,983 ✭✭✭ Yggr of Asgard

    Can it be that your salary various slightly over time (bonus/shares/tax credits) while your wives is always the same?

  • Registered Users Posts: 431 ✭✭ nephster

    That's what I originally thought was the issue - hers are always a standard amount, mine are normally above my nominal salary. I'll ask her later if she is down as payments coming from herself or a third party...

    I didn't get the Ikea cashback when shopping in person (which I had for other retailers). Have other people experienced this? It was a fairly hefty sum in the end, so if I could get it, I'd love to.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,439 ✭✭✭ amber2

    Contact them on chat, screenshot where you opened the link to ikea on the recently used and also screenshot of the % of cashback. They are usually good to sort it out.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,516 ✭✭✭ frash

    No they won't - they'll tell you it's online only (even though it works in a lot of bricks n' mortar places)

  • Registered Users Posts: 431 ✭✭ nephster

    @Yggr of Asgard - just as an update, her salary deposits also show as coming from herself, but are standard amounts unlike mine.

    I do wonder then, if you are not with PTSB, then you perhaps can avail of it with differing amounts, but with PTSB they have to be a regular sum. Bit of a bugger, and probably no simple way around it.

    I don't have Amazon as an option on my revolut for the cash back any more.

    Anyone know why this is?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,439 ✭✭✭ amber2

    @lestercullen showing up on mine when typed in the search bar. 2%

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,983 ✭✭✭ Yggr of Asgard

    I think that the AI chooses who get's Amazon offers.

    I don't have it but I know other people who still have it, maybe once you used it to often the AI knows you are a regular customer and after all the purpose of cashback is to lure you to shop at Amazon (and the other retailers).

    I notice that a shop that I regulary use disapeared for me but is still there for others, so I think that is what it is, once you have been aquired and earned something you might not longer get it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,439 ✭✭✭ amber2


    just spotted this on Reddit a reply from Revolut, Amazon showing on my app so unsure about the limited time time answer so must be capping the cashback per account.

    Response from chat assistant: 

    "If your shops feature working perfectly and you are concerned about specifically Amazon cashback then the Amazon feature comes for a limited period. Whenever they launch again you will be able to see it."

    Looks like a UK promo but I got both an email and app notification for m them. As it happens I'm in the UK at the end of the month.So hopefully I get some benefit from it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 856 ✭✭✭ tbahh

    Mine says up to €10 in the email but does only mention the UK in the terms and conditions.

    Since it says '€' and not '£' in the email, I presume there was a mistake somewhere. I'll do it anyway and can get on to their support if cashback not applied!
