Revolut Starts Beta in U.S.

Recommended Posts

I was invited in an email message so I deposited $20 (they accept debit card deposits) to start things off. Card should arrive next week. I chose their free account. In the U.S., Metropolitan Commercial Bank is used for much of their service. I'm a sucker for opening up accounts I don't need. To apply, I needed to download their app. I needed to take a picture of my driver's license and take a selfie while applying.

The account boasts low foreign exchange rates, low foreign ATM fees, plus you can keep your balance in multiple currencies.

What's the purpose of this card?  Isn't it the same as TransferWise?

It isn't providing anything new to me. It's another debit card with some bill paying and money transfer services and allows multiple currency balances. It's not as good as Transferwise as you can get local banking details in several currencies for direct deposits, but maybe that's also coming.

I'll only be keeping a minimal amount of money in it.

I did get my Revolut card. I've used it once at a grocery store. My account only has about $100 in it. The account works like dozens of others of these debit card accounts that are advertised on Facebook and the like. It's nothing special.
