    Whilst it is beneficial for someone who travels a lot, the budgeting and analytics features are the reason this is now my primary card for local spending.

    Very convenient and easy to use. Application is simple, fast and straight forward. Almost a must have for those who travel a lot (usually) and need to have several currencies at hand. Thanks Revolut, keep going!

    [Features] The ability to transfer funds back to a local bank is certainly a plus with Revolut. Doesnā€™t take long and the process is formed through giving users a peace of mind. [Analytics] Ability to allow spending to be monitored which is good for those using it for business or travelling to track expenses. A feature not available on credit cards with paid annual fees.

Nope. I just did it. Revolut received the transfer but they do not recognise the transaction. It is currently not supported for Singaporean users.

I just called the hotline and asked if the Securities Settlement account can be credited from an external account. And the person said no. Only between SC internal accounts.

For SC, I donā€™t think so. They donā€™t provide the bank details for doing the wire transfer. I havenā€™t tried asking though. Maybe I should ask them next week. https://www.sc.com/sg/investment/livefx/ SC has the LiveFX platform now. So I usually use it to convert to USD from SGD. The conversion rate is usually less than 1% difference between LiveFX and TransferWise after fees.

Hi. No cashback will be rewarded. In this day and age, such loopholes are already closed. As long as the amount can be withdrawn, 99% its excluded for cashback. I would suggest you use it as a daily expenses card if you dont have a cashback credit card to earn 1% cashback normally.

At this time, Revolut does not provide bank account details for sign ups in Singapore. So I donā€™t think itā€™s possible. Transferwise does provide USD account details for sign ups in Singapore. Note that it can only be used for receiving USD and not for sending payments at this time. I have used it for receiving USD but not with Saxo though. You may want to try to register the Transferwise account for your Saxo USD withdrawal account. You will need to provide the account details and show proof of ownership and the account in your name with the statement.

There are no charges. It'll take a few days as the transfer is done through FAST payment. When receiving the funds in your account, it'll show that you've received payment via GIRO from "The Currency Cloud Ltd".

You will need to register a new account for withdrawal. The process involves filling in the form with the Benficiary Bank's BIC and IBAN then providing a bank statement as proof. While Revolut provides statements for its customers, I do not think it will be considered as a bank statement. You can try that out. https://www.help.saxo/hc/en-sg/articles/360001256303-How-do-I-withdraw-funds-
