I’m a big fan of Revolut. While KBC is probably Ireland’s best digital bank, Revolut has made an incredible impact here. Earlier this year in May, the company announced they had reached over 1 million customers in Ireland. My favourite thing about Revolut as a business is that they have a startup mentality and are on the leading edge of banking technology, offering great experiences like the ability to view all your bank accounts within the Revolut app. Today, the online-only bank announced they would be launching Revolut Rewards to Premium users of the app in Ireland with all customers getting it in the coming weeks.
What Is Revolut Rewards?
Rewards in banking isn’t a new idea. Even Permanent TSB who is exceptionally slow to get new things to market has a cashback reward with VISA. Revolut Rewards is a combination of this cashback model and also discount loyalty programmes like to 3Plus. Revolut is partnering with loads of your favourite brands who are involved in travel, apparel, food and drink, health and beauty, fitness, and many more. There is no additional cost to pay to use Revolut Rewards but you do have to be a Revolut customer based in Ireland.
It’s worth noting that it is only currently available for paying Revolut customers but will be available to all in the coming weeks.
How Does Revolut Cashback Work?
With cashback rewards, when you buy something using your Revolut card in a participating shop, you’ll get a certain percentage of your purchase back into your Revolut account.
How Do The Discounts Work?
Discounts will work online or in-store, the latter by way of redeeming a promo-code in the Revolut app. In-store, you can get your discount by simply using your Revolut account to pay by card, Google Pay, Apple Pay or FitBit Pay.
Where Can I Get These Revolut Offers?
If you are a Revolut Premium customer, you’ll be able to get this discounts already. Otherwise, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a few weeks.
You’ll be able to get cashback on purchases from ASOS, Udemy, Life Style Sports, Nike.com, Easons School Shop, Easons.com, Booking.com, Nasty Gal, Dr Martens, Taylor Morris Eyewear, Molton Brown, American Golf, JoJo Baby Mom IE, Brooks Running, Hotel Chocolat, M&M Direct.
The big call outs there for me are up to 10% cashback from ASOS and 6% from Lifestyle Sports.
In terms of discounts, you’ll be able to make use of this in Kildare Village, lookfantastic, MUBI, Busuu, Myprotein, Hotels.com.
Kildare Village is an extra 10% on any discount already in place.
If you’re not a customer already, you’ve probably had that moment where you’re out with friends and been the one who couldn’t split the bill on Revolut. So sort it out. Sign up for Revolut today and if you do it through that link there I might even get a wee kickback or a free card or maybe nothing at all. They change referral rewards a lot!
