“The new metal card is fully contactless and has been designed with obsessive attention to detail. At three times the weight of a regular card, Revolut Metal is crafted from a single sheet of reinforced steel using a diamond drill bit. Paint particles have then been layered to the card using a physical vapour deposition, with customers’ details etched onto the card using a high precision laser.”See the full article for yourself, here. It’s one for the fashion and trend conscious, that’s for sure. So, what do you get with this card? Obviously, it’s more than just a metal card and comes with the host of benefits that you’ll find as a platinum Revolut member. According to Bankingtech.com:
“Metal customers will also get unlimited foreign exchange, free international money transfers, and overseas travel insurance that will cover areas including health, dental, flight and luggage delays. Customers will receive up to 1% cashback on all card transactions made outside of Europe, as well as 0.1% on those made within Europe, and customers will be able to receive their cashback in any of Revolut’s 25 supported fiat currencies or five cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin.”Furthermore, Nik Storonsky the CEO of Revolut has said:
“The launch of Revolut Metal is also an important step towards the company generating additional revenue, especially as we prepare to launch a commission-free trading platform and expand the business into North America and Asia later this year. There is so much more to come, including commission-free trading and airport lounges.”It’s an interesting prospect and for some reason, I expect these cards are going to fly out.
