Revolut-Maestro cards [NOW WORKING]


#21

What happens when you go to the “order a new phyiscal card” area of the App?
Are you able to order a Maestro card for €12 (or CHF-Equivalent)?


#22

No, not really :frowning:


#23

What happens after you click on “Karte mit einer Gebühr von Fr 7 hinzufügen”…? :wink:


#24

ahhh yeah now it works, thanks :slight_smile:


#25

You’re welcome.
The second card should be Fr. 7.— for the card and Fr. 7.— for standard delivery => Fr. 14.— in total.

(BTW, the normal prices for the first card are: Fr. 0.— (card) and Fr. 7.— (delivery), so Fr. 7.— in total.)


#26

That would be really helpful - I travel to Netherlands every week for work and without maestro it’s really inconvenient


#27

Something I noticed is that I can’t change the PIN on my Maestro card at the ATM.
I tried several ATM’s like Bank Cler, Postfinance, UBS and Migros Bank.


#28

I cannot order a Maestro card because I already have a Visa and Mastercard linked to my account and I dont want to get rid of either. I already contacted support but they just told me that this is the way it is. Its inbelievable that revolut offers 3 card types but only allows you to use two of them at a time, please fix this and allow Maestro as a third card.


#29

@DeltaX: Probably a Maestro “thing”. Did it work with you Mastercard and/or Visa? (Did you need to try at several banks as well?)


#30

Yeah, I had succsess with the Mastercard. I’ve changed the Mastercard PIN at the UBS ATM.


#31

However I am still hoping for a dual card as that could solve the problem of having three card but only use two


#32

Where are the cards issued?


#33

Did you have the possibility to withdraw EUR?


#34

Not necessarily. When checking Mastercard’s guidelines for merchant fees, Debit Mastercards and Maestro cards are in the same category.


#35

The problem is that with credit cards you cannot withdraw EUR in CH :frowning:
All banks are blocking this feature, with Swiss bank cards you can surely withdraw EUR (because than they can charge you their exchange fees) :rage:

I have called my bank and they said it’s disabled for all credit cards, but maybe not for real debit cards (maestro)?


#36

Any experience from Swiss users?


#37

@gabriel1231

well not with a revolut-card, BUT with a TW-card: to make sure everything works, I “activated” it (first use) at a postfinance-ATM; I draw some CHF, but had the option of withdrawing EUR; not sure if with DCC or without (bc I have several EUR-ATM on the other side of the border)…

As the TW-card is real-debit and EUR-withdrawal was activated - I guess they’re right…


#38

Mmh, I dont have the option if I use my TW card :frowning:


#39

did you try with a postfinance-ATM or with “normal bank-only”?


#40

Is the maestro card also available for users in Belgium? Would be very useful here. I can’t check it out as I already have 2 physical cards. Because I’m a premium user, the sent me a new mastercard, but if a Maestro card was available, I would give up my original/free mastercard.
