3127640.jpgMinimum top-up £10. You can withdraw this or transfer to your main bank account when you get the card anyway, so if you sign up with this offer you'll have £11.50 - take the £10 back out and you'll have £1.50 to spend.

50 points. If you've bought the scratchcard to win one with £50 and you lose you will get this anyway (I did).

Hope this is useful!

Starling much better here. You can withdraw £300 a day from a cash machine any where in the world and the card is free when it is posted. It also has fscs protected. Starling is a normal bank account that you can pay your wages into. Revolut doesn’t know what it wants to be. It’s a quasi prepaid card/bank account/money changer/crypto currency/share dealing service pizza orderer etc... Even curve is better then this and they pay you to join.

I think Curve and Starling are different products than Revolut! It is good to have a choice. Got all 3, I use Starling (via Samsung pay) and Curve daily. I will use Revolut next when I will go abroad. I believe you are right with Starling, I have chosen it too because of these reasons. However, does not hurt to have Revolu too, if free to get it. Some people.lose their minds when they go abroad, Revolut may help them to spend less. Regarding Curve, I use it daily and on occasions was unreliable, but on the whole I am pleased with it.

I've been using Revolut since they first launched back and it hasn't let me down once. We use it all the time for holidays and I also know use it as my main card, wages go into my bank, I keep enough there for bills and then the rest to Revolut. The apps great, gives you analytics of how your money's being spent, lots of security options (turn off contactless, turn off swipe, location based purchases, turn off online payments or just freeze the card altogether). I'm also part of the Metal plan now, disposable cards are great!

Also the metal card is gorgeous:

Is the metal card any extra cost? Didn't say in the app for me

Yeah it's £12.99/month for £120 annually, comes with some nice benefits such as travel insurance, delayed baggage, a higher atm withdrawal limit, disposable cards, cashback. I also have access to the Perks beta feature, every ten times I use my card I get a reward, I've had things like 50% off McDonalds, Burger King, Aliexpress etc. But I'm not sure when or if they're rolling it out to everyone.

So the big question, given card refreshes you can sign upto free trials continually right? Like Netflix ?

If you like to waste over £100 per year only for fancy metal card then sure...

Still they can just decide to close down the business in 5 minutes and you will stay with nothing.
I find the rate better with revoult, only use sterling during weekends to avoid revoult fees or if I go over £200 withdrawal limit set by revoult.

So what about the HOLD app? anybody using it?

Yep this is where I found the Revolut card with £1.50 free credit, I've had free popcorn at Vue (don't think it's available now as doesn't show anymore unless it was a one use only thing) and there was a 2 months Now TV Sky Cinema pass but I had a 3 months pass from the Clowncer competition so didn't redeem lol

I mean, there's also all the perks I listed included in that fee. There's also some people that waste money on things like smoking, so each to their own I guess.

I never store large amounts of money in it, maybe £300-400 at a time so I'm not at any financial risk, but Revolut have applied for a license and should have it in the next few months so all money will be protected.

Perks are on the free plan, but if you travel a lot and want to play the currency markets a bit then its probably worth it. The only feature i'd really like on the free plan is disposable/virtual card numbers for internet purchases. Thats a really nice feature other credit card companies should take note of.

I mean things like the travel insurance and cashback, but yeah the disposable card is really handy, gives that extra piece of mind when buying online. With the amount of data leaks that happen now it's better being safe than sorry.

The actual perks beta seems to be completely random though, I have it but my girlfriend who got her card at the same time doesn't and my little brother who got his a year doesn't have it either.

Must just be the nature of the beta. I always find i get to my 10th payment at an inappropriate time and can't use the offer. It would be nice if they gave you a bit longer.

Just good security for any banking app..
Used revolut card to recently purchase from dbrand. Worked fine, no problems. Added money from Google pay into revolut, converted to US dollars instantly and paid using the revolut card.

My US currency was used only and the rest I converged back to GBP, very quick and was quite impressed

That's different from disposable cards, everyone has access to virtual cards however premium members get disposable cards which destroy themselves once they've been used and automatically generates a new card. You can only generate 5 virtual cards a month, there's no limit to disposable cards.

So what is the virtual card for? I have only seen the disposable virtuals which is a premium feature.

The virtual cards are cards you can set up to pay online, but you can only make 5 a month/have 5 at once. They can be used over and over again until you delete them from your account. Disposable cards you can only have one of, but it can be used as much as you like and it generates a new card everytime.

Very interesting, but does starling let you decide when to buy your foreign currency or does it just force you to use whatever the MasterCard rate is on the day of purchase?

It's also worth remembering that the MasterCard rate is less favourable than the spot rate offered by revolut.
