Pioneered by Russian banking and software experts Nikolay Storonsky and Vlad Yatsenko after witnessing personally the scandalous fees seen at other banks when exchanging funds, Revolut was made to combine a simplistic and easy-going banking experience with top-tier technology, access to cryptocurrency and cost-free international spending. Now, with only a few years under its belt, Revolut supports over eight millions customers worldwide and deals with millions in customer funds on a daily basis, a sign of the company’s transparency and longstanding trust with clients worldwide.
With the rise of the likes of Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies over the past decade, Revolut quickly saw the potential of this new form of funding and aimed to connect as many customers with their new digital funds as possible. Now premium customers can access five separate cryptocurrencies with a few flicks of a finger, giving customers the ability to spend and exchange as they please. Combining this with innovative additions like spending via Apple Pay, pocketing your spare change on every transaction via the Vault service, no-fee withdrawals and other nifty bonuses, it’s easy to see why so many high street bank customers have made the digital switch to Revolut.
To get even more from your money when banking with Revolut, you’ll want to copy the promo code directly from our mobile app. Then once you’ve entered the details for your transaction/exchange on the Revolut app itself, have your promo code ready to paste before proceeding.
There’s no easier way to keep your monthly spending in-check than with the Revolut built-in budgeting systems, which can micromanage your expenses so you know exactly how much you have for everything from groceries through to dining out.
