Got a message from Revolut saying I can have a free card, thought this might interest others.

Revolut is like a bank but it isn't and a card from them would be like a bank card but it isn't. You get free foreign exchange with it.

So as for information there's this thing it's called Revolut, it's not a bank. A bank is a thing that will protect you up to something like 80k instead this is something else and doesn't do that.

This card looks and feels like a bank card, but it isny.

It's great for travelling with.

Unlike the stupid post office it is:

Hassle freeee
Doesn't involve a trip to the post office
Has better exchange rates
Is less hassle
Is hassle free and it is handy as.

There's other benefits too, say you wanna buy something from France in euros and you think aw naw my bank charges fees for that. There's this, it doesn't.

Say you wanna do that somewhat dodgy Netflix from Turkey thing (look it up) or Deezer from a Columbian geezer then you can use this, easy, fund it with the amount and forget it.

Also there is a card, can be used at ATMs, can be managed online so easy with the app and frozen if lost so easy. Unlike the crap credit cards which you'll end up forgetting to pay and being charged unlike the post office travel card this has an app that was designed in the last millennium by actual people with brains - human brains.

So if you need more information read the thread comments, use Alta Vista or Ask Geeves or whatever or hook up your accountant on Excite chat and get with the 20th century, I'm out.

Helpful info from members (Thanks to all)

@morgie
Also handy for if you're purchasing crypto currencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin...) via Coinbase / GDAX avoiding fees

@morgie I could do a conversion right now in the app from GBP and buy Euros at the rate this minute and then not spend them until sometime in the future, hence effectively 'locking' that rate in to the amount of Euros I've just purchased.

@keri7171
Best card ever for hols, great rates of exchange,on your mobile you transfer money onto card direct from bank account. really secure as you can block your card as well . love mine

Can someone put euros from an EU bank into it, and then can I then transfer them out in pounds in to my Uk account with no fee? Yes (Thanks @crazy_b )

@joshsimmons
I’ve used this on a recent holiday in Europe, it’s great - it’s a prepaid card (MasterCard). They exchange at a far better rate than the high street and it’s all managed via the app.
A useful feature is the round up thing which is switched on in the app, rounds up each transaction to the nearest pound and puts that amount into a savings account - either for future use, or withdrawal.

@MrPuddington
''Revolut is possibly the best card for spending abroad: no loading, no commissions, no fees

(All other cards, expect for one or two similar companies, will make you pay at least the standard 1% currency conversion loading from VISA. Halifax for example does.)

It also offers you immediate control over your account. It will show you the transactions seconds after it is made''

You can click on the link and the information is there. However only £200 free ATM withdrawals abroad a month so may be a little restrictive for some,but it's free, and I'd obviously rather use a card like this than my bank card whilst abroad. Money saving expert is probably the best source of info for these and Starling bank looks like a better bet.

I use Revolut ands it's fantastic. The rates are always better than those offered elsewhere and the app is very intuitive
I had this offer emailed to me, but already have monzo and starling so see no benefit for joining revolut as well.

Their standard account is free but there's a monthly fee for the premium account according to the link.

Thanks OP, I once heard about people paying and being able to get better exchange rates using this card while doing transactions on PayPal, but I forgot to find out more about it. Now thanks to your posting I've got the app.
I had this offer emailed to me, but already have monzo and starling so see no benefit for joining revolut as well.
Currently in Barcelona, card is very useful and works well. Only issue I've had is when I tried to top up with android pay it crashed the app every time. Also the customer service leaves a lot to be desired if you are having issues.
Really flexible and handy as you convert between £/€/$. So if you have some € left on card and need $ you can exchange without the need to swap into £’s. You can also set rate alerts and convert when it hits your desired rate. You can withdraw more than £200 in a month but there is a 2% charge- still a really convenient way to convert cash at near perfect exchange rates
So what kind of exchange rate are you looking at compared to the shops?

I've been using this card for the last 4 years. How do you lock the rates?
Highly recommended! Been using mine regularly since last October in South Africa and across Europe and found it so convenient. Customer service has been pretty great too!

From my research: Starling is £300 per day free from ATM (abroad or on UK) at Mastercard rates, whilst Revolut is £200 per month free abroad at Mastercard rates.
Damn that is quite a big difference!

Does Starling do hard credit checks?

PS I've had a Revolut for years now, love it!

I have the premium version and it’s great! I travel often with work so it’s a good way to keep a track of your spending/rates. Really good! Highly recommended

Could you imagine if every deal posted here was like that.

“Car for £5000, which some of you might find interesting. it’s like a bike but it’s not, it’s like a lorry but it not but you do get wheels”

When you actually read down the comments, lots of info which is useful...

Is this worth getting for Microsoft store from other countries ? Instead of gift cards
They always had a free tier and I think it's a good card - had one for years. They're starting to charge for things and apply limits - it was inevitable they would have to monetize it sometime.

Monzo is far superior.

Monzo is far superior.


Why? (Honest question). From my research big benefit is that Monzo is a regulated bank so you get govt protection of £80k (or 85k whatever the number was).

Anything else?
I'd say a fee free credit card is better, don't have to top up before and no fee for using it at the weekend. still if you are after a card then get it now, I might even get one although I'm not sure when I would actually use it

Yes, if all you want to do is buy stuff when you are abroad. But it provides the ability to move money in different currencies for free, something the vast majority of normal banks charge for.
Thanks, away on holiday soon do this sounds ideal!
Nothing here, would be great to know from op if this was account t specific, if it was an email, or an online chat, or just an advert they clicked through. I have an account but as far as I was aware you needed to top up a tenner to get a card.

If you have family abroad can transfer money and not pay bank fees for example, or maybe you have a house abroad and need money for that.
