Seen it mentioned on the Georgia away thread. 

Anyone use this? 

Does it work like Visa debit card?

Got one last December. Any one who does currency exchanges a couple times a year should get it. Works the same as a visa yes , had to pay 7 euro to get the card though. Download the app on your phone and link it to a current account so you can top it up as required.

Might do that as it's handy to have something other than your bank card and whatever cash you have on you. 

They better take it in Georgia as it'll be needed LOL

Got 1 of these ages ago when it was free to get the card but not really used it much bar once or twice online. Hopefully it will work over in Georgia as will preload it for the trip

I have the premium version 6.99 a month. Top it up from your own bank account, very useful saves time changing currency in a bank, useful if you travel to frequently for work etc the app itself is also useful to see what you've been spending money on.

Just installed the app so you top up via the app and that new balance translates onto your revolut debit card? Do you need to do something else with the card too?

Set it up transfer funds across and send the actual card to your address, if you went for premium I think they send you two cards, if i remember right.

Not wanting to send a few lads into meltdown on the Denmark thread, ill bump this to ask my question...maybe some of you Revolut users can answer me..

Is it better to exchange your balance or part of to the currency (DKK) prior to withdrawing from the ATM over there or leave as a € balance? Im thinking specifically of the €200 monthly limit on physical withdrawals from the ATM and not wanting to exceed that and paying a fee. I will use contactless and cash back where possible but always like to have a bit of cash in the pocket.

I just transfer whatever I need from my main account to the revolut card just before withdrawing it, free to transfer from the account so no need to be worrying about that.

From what I hear Denmark is mostly pay by card so I'd probably just take out the €100 worth of kroner then preceed as you see fit with anything else if you're looking some actual cash in your hand.

Doesn't make too much difference to be honest, the only thing is there is a 0.5% charge on the weekends so probably better to take it out on the Friday either way

Buying that tv, remember that it's only fee free up to 2k per month. Now, you will be grand for the tv alone, but if you were (say) adding a sound bar to it and doing a whack of grocery shopping in Newry and going on holiday somewhere that doesn't use the euro, in the next month, it might add up.

There's another use of the abreveation of TV, and when you ad in the extra inches it takes on another meaning altogether. So I'm sure you'll have a painful but joyful world cup with your TVWink

I've heard revolut is up n' running for business, but I don't have a business one as yet, only the personal card, but here's my question.... Can I pay invoices (say, 10k+ in dollars) with no exchange or transaction fee, if I just transfer enough funds on to my revolut card? It'd be to an American bank a/c


Also, so where is it that revolut actually make their money? Confused

The fx rate is good but they are still making a tiny % on it.
Every time you swipe the shop/restaurant/bar etc gets charged a small fee. These all add up.
Also Revolut offers credit and premium accounts that attract fees.

As a big early proponent of Revolut I've been disappoint by it lately, multiple times it's blocked a transaction for no reason, I was in the states at the weekend and it blocked my hotel payment so I had to put it onto my own card, it's getting annoying to the extreme.

Happened me in Copenhagen actually. No cash on me whatsoever and the card kept rejecting even though there was more than enough on it.

Happened me in Copenhagen also, but just went into the app and unfroze it after contacting their online chat. Supposedly the crad froze as a security feature due to the volume of transactions ( mostly €4.70 in the Dubliner) made in a short space of time. After I unfroze it I havent had an issue since although I havent used it as much obviously.

theres stamp duty in Ireland if you use it in an ATM. Ive been using it in shops for contactless without any charges.And you can only withdraw €200 pm month from an ATM before charges apply. Its all on the pricing section of their website.

What currency you withdraw horsebox and had you gone over your free monthly allowance? €200 I think it is

€9.69 sounds wrong to me.

I never withdraw cash. It was the first time.

I'd only made a handful of small purchases too.

I think I did choose the wrong option when taking it out and choose the local currently. I don't recall.

Possibly.  You normally get an option during the cash withdrawal process to accept or decline currency conversion - I always decline, same way when I'm staying at a hotel that I would normally ask the hotel to take the money for the stay in their local currency instead of the one on the card I'm using.

Question: 
If I put $1000 dollars on my card, and then when im in the US can I go to ATM's and withdraw dollars numerous times without transaction fees, or is there a certain amount of cash you can only take out in ATMs per month / or a certain amount you can use an ATM each month? 

Or is this bulls**t as just wondering can I use ATMs and withdraw whenever I want instead of using the card to swipe all the time while im abroad?

In the US you can swipe it everywhere.
I normally take some dollars for tips and use the card for everything else.

The fees aren't that high. I think they're basically the same as you'd pay with your own bank.

2% fee after the initial €200.

My bank charges 3.5% for any non euro atm withdrawal.

This is the advice I gave him too, then I remembered The Count loved a good bum bag and cash while a young tourist, so I can only imagine what monstrosity of a fanny pack he'll be taking as an oul lad.

I have withdrawn well over €200 on my travels and sometimes I'd check the amount that was taken fro mthe account and the xe.com rates and it's usually always close enough to that amount.

In most countries there are different banks and atms, and some of them have a very high charge rate but that would be the same rate as using your usual bank cards.

If you lose your card it's €7 to replace, but just thinking back I had mine skimmed as I could see some strange attempts to buy extra sized ridged dildos in $, so I asked Revolut about it and they said ok we will issue you a new card for free.

So if you lose your card. Just go and try and buy some weird random crap and the declineds will show up on your card, and then contact custmer care querying these strange attempted purchases Cool

Simple question: 
Can a third party walk into AIB and top up my revolut account? It'd be a few grand and how long would it take to hit my account?

Hit top up on the app and then bank transfer. It gives you an Iban and a reference. If you give that to the person they can arrange a transfer. Takes a few days.

I'm travelling to Cheltenham next week. If I put €200 on my revolut card..and I wish to withdraw at an atm in UK should I convert the € to £ on the app before doing so,?

That's the plan alright but want to know the best option for future reference.

I think you do convert it to the currency of the country you're in.

Doesn't make much difference, if you leave it in euro it will give you the interbank exchange rate at the time you use the card, less 0.5% if it's the weekend. If you exchange it beforehand you just get whatever rate at time of exchange, less 0.5% at the weekend.

If you see a good sterling rate, lock it in. I have alerts set up to let me know if/when sterling hits £0.90 and USD at $1.25 as I need both those currencies this year, I just leave some money there in euro and exchange it when there's a good rate.

The reason I'm confused by it all is down to when I was in Copenhagen. I exchanged the money from euro to krone on the app before going to an ATM then when I went to the ATM I realised the money was exchanged yet again but from Pounds to Krone. Is that normal or just something that occurs in Denmark?

It usually takes from the currency you're withdrawing in unless you don't have enough of that currency in your account and takes from which currency you do have.

If you had enough Kroner and no Sterling before that then that's pretty odd...

The Revolut live chat has spoken:
The card will auto-convert your balance to the currency you're spending in at the best rate so there is no need to pre-purchase currency. You can currently only exchange between USD, GBP, EUR, PLN, CHF, DKK, NOK, SEK, RON, SGD, HKD, AUD, NZD, TRY, ILS, AED, CAD, HUF, INR, JPY, MAD, CZK, QAR, THB, and ZAR on the app.

We will be adding more base currencies later which you will be able to load onto your Revolut account and exchange to lock in a great rate.

In fairness, I used it to transfer £3150 Sterling today and it was a hundred quid cheaper than transferring through ulsterbank.

Dont bother Nvidic, hes been told numerous times how much people can save and i gave my own example pages back. He just doesnt get it so would rather try and mock those that do by witty €1 comments.
