I’d say it’s most likely that Revolut just hasn’t managed to set the service up for other regions. They’re not actively excluding anyone, why would they? They most likely make money with it. They just didn’t get around to onboard more regions. I don’t believe there’s any secret logic behind this other than opportunity.
This feature isn’t new. Rewards are available in the UK for a very long time. The feature was revamped at least one time and then introduced in other regions, summer 2020 if I remember correctly. Then the pandemic hit. Revolut fired employees. And maybe just focused on other things since then. Who knows …
Revolut is probably focusing on customer numbers, not numbers of regions.
We understand how much you would love this cashback offer, but currently, it’s available only in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden. We are launching soon across the world so stay tuned.
@tmpt, Yes, it’s instant. It’s your money. You bought it, you got it.
