Yeah they're fine.

I just saved €10 on an Amazon purchase by paying in sterling using my Revolut card, rather than paying in Euro on my PTSB card. Well worth having one of these for non-Euro purchases.

Hi all I also have referral links advailable. Which will save you €6 when ordering your free physical card.

I have one of these I have give it to kids for school tours , use on holidays, Mexico Netflix and Amazon. It has saved me loads in exchange fees.

You will need to min top up 10 euro credit activate.

Thought the app

Can lock the card when not in use.
View and change PIN number.
Top up
See transactions in real time. Notice is pushed to phone each time it used.

Pm me if you need a referral link.

This is incorrect. Revolut Visa Debit does not work on Google Pay.

You need to give people the correct facts. Only paid premium accounts use mastercard. The standard free Revolut account uses Visa Debit cards.

When Revolut first came out they had mastercard as standard, but that has not been the case for a couple of years now.

Which brings me back to my original comment. The Revolut Visa Debit card does not work on Google Pay.

Hi was not aware they issued in visa debit aswell. My card is the free physical card standard account and it's matercard card also. Will ament my early post it was not meant to mislead as google pay works for me.

I'm wondering is it worth while paying the 13.99 a month? Interested to know all the benefits. Is the travel insurance up to much?

The fee's are 2%. I would highly doubt they are killing you unless you're withdrawing insane amounts of money in which case a metal card won't benefit you that much as the maximum free withdrawal with that account is €600 per month. If the fee's are killing you, you need to just purchase the metal card yourself, as referrals are not allowed on boards. Also what country doesn't accept cards? You'll never receive the amount of referrals on here to get a free metal card anyway.

My rent is €350 per month paid in cash.. So immediately, before anything else coming out.. I've already gone over the €200.. I'm well aware that I won't get all the referrals, I already have 3 friends that have signed up, so I only need 2 more (and one has pm'ed me on here regarding signing up).. What country doesn't accept cards? I never stated that, I said 'a lot of places don't accept card'. I'm in a small town in Spain fyi, where the majority, if they do accept card, has a 10€ minimum. But thank you for your input, did you reply to everyone else on this thread saying referral codes are not allowed when just like them I stated to pm me?

Have you considered using N26 instead? 5 free cash withdraws per month with them.
