Wait, it’s April already? That means new monthly updates. And this month, we’re showering you with a bucket-load of new improvements and features. From tweaking our payment contacts homepage, to new limited edition cards, we have so much to share. So, grab a few minutes to yourself, and have a browse.

Personalise your username and get paid without revealing your mobile number

Make your Revolut username unique. Choose a username in-app that’s personalised and you’ll never need to hand your number out to get paid. Splitting a bill? Sorted. Make it memorable and easy for people to send you money. Snap your unique name up now before all the good ones are taken!

Glow-in-the-dark cards

Whether you’re a boxing fan, a gym bunny, or you just love collecting exclusive, limited edition designs, we’ve got the card for you. We’ve teamed up with Anthony Joshua to in a bid to support gyms and leisure centres affected by COVID-19 across the UK. For every limited edition card our customers buy, we’ll donate £1 to independent gyms and leisure centres. Want to help? It’s easy. Get your limited edition Anthony Joshua card in-app for a small fee and #Lightitup.

New Payments shortcuts

We’ve made it easier than ever to pay your Revolut contacts. Browse your recent contacts on the Payments home screen, then simply tap and hold a contact icon to pay and get paid. Plus, this latest update adds an A-Z scrolling function to your contact list, so you can easily find friends and loved ones by letter.

Save when you shop at small businesses

At Revolut, we’re committed to supporting small businesses. That’s why we’re offering up to 20% off when you use your Revolut card to shop at small businesses, all with Rewards. Treat yourself and loved ones to unique personal gifts from independent sites, knowing you’re doing your bit to support individual and family run businesses that really need it. So what are you waiting for? Get shopping with Rewards, and uncover some hidden gems you won’t find anywhere else.

Show RSPCA some love with a tap

You might already know that with our Donations feature, you can choose the causes you want to support and give money easily. This month, we’ve added the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to our list of charities. Donate the way that works for you and support our furry, feathered, fluffy friends. You can choose from one-off payments, spare change round-ups, or recurring donations with just a few taps. Check it out by tapping the Donations tile. Together, we can make a difference.

That’s all, folks

So that’s our April round-up. There’s something for everyone this month, so make sure you update your app and go explore. We’ll be back next month with even more great features.
