Isn't it £10 because you are paying £5 for the Groupon voucher then you are having to top up £35 and get a discount of £30 leaving £5 for you to pay ? I'm part way through setting up and its asking for payment by card or bank transfer on the FairFX website

Groupon £5.

State you want £35 on the card when asked.

When registering, enter promo code from groupon.

It will show a £30 discount, you have to pay ANOTHER £5.

£10 spent in total... BUT... the £5 you just spent in last step will be there for you to spend on the card...

So, £5 cost to spend £30.

Can this card be used in the UK? Can I pay in £5 to get £35 and then just spend all that here?

If so, any disadvantages of doing so?

I didn't understand that...perhaps I'm having a senior moment
Also, there seems to be a code SAND20 for 20% off Groupon, or are you aware of any reason that's not eligible with this deal and so didn't post it?

Maybe, I've just purchased so will let you know, I think the everywhere card might be able to be used in the UK.

Code SAND20 is a holiday code, doesnt work on this but HELLO15 works on a new account.

I just want to know if it can be used in the UK like a normal card, so pounds sterling.

It mentions an everywhere card too, so could you not use it in any currency including our own?
Don't you have to add £35 to activate this voucher?

I'm assuming £5 is from you and the other £30 is the Groupon voucher

In which case it would be £10 for £35, rather than £5 for £30 ? So not much practical difference.

No but the title is slightly misleading as expecting to spend £5 not £10, doesn't make a difference though as you say
Groupon £5.

State you want £35 on the card when asked.

When registering, enter promo code from groupon.

It will show a £30 discount, you have to pay ANOTHER £5.

£10 spent in total... BUT... the £5 you just spent in last step will be there for you to spend on the card...

So, £5 cost to spend £30.
So the important questions already asked but unanswered.
1) can it be used in UK?
2) is your credit file hit?
I'm guessing no and yes.

Your credit file will record this card, but I can't imagine it negatively impacting score as you're not taking credit, it's prepaid.

Mine doesnt work even though I put code in.
It wants to charge full amount.
What code to use - Groupon Code or Security Code

Does this need to enter at the first page where it says 'Voucher Code (Optional)'

You top up £35, when you put your groupon code in it gets discounted to £5.
