    Ok, I started using Plutus on 20th January and have been paying the £9.99 a month for 2 perks and putting my Curve Metal fee and Netflix through it.

    As I understand it I should be earning £20 a month in crypto which I can withdraw after 45 days.

    However, I can’t yet see how to withdraw any funds. How does it work? I can click “Send” but it says something about Fiat withdrawals being suspended (I didn’t want a car, just a few quid 🤣). On the “Perks” tab, I can see it says total PLU earned and available (which says 2.67/£11.87) but the only button is to view the breakdown, there is no withdrawal option.

    Any help appreciated, I find the whole thing very confusing! TIA

    So you are on the Everyday plan? This gives 3% in PLU for the first £500 of spend on the card per month. Anything above that and there is no benefit! It takes a couple of days after a transaction before the PLU being awarded will show, so make sure you hit the cap well before the end of the month, not on the last day or two.

    The Curve Metal and Netflix fees – presumably you have selected these as your monthly perks, and then charged them through to your Plutus card?
    In that case you’ll get your 3% on £500 plus 2x £10, as you say this will be given after 45 days.
    These rewards go to your internal wallet – see the Pluton tab.

    If you want to move it to an external wallet or sell, you will need a wallet to move it to (I think they recommend MetaMask, which is why I have it on my phone) and a compatible browser (MetaMask has a browser built in, but you need to use Chrome etc instead on a phone, utilising the MetaMask wallet). There is also a small fee for transferring from your internal wallet.
    I’ve not transferred from an internal to external wallet so can’t help you there, the reason being I am working towards the first tier for stacking rewards.

    Thanks EwanG. You say to use the Pluton tab but the only tabs I have are Home, Card, Perks and Profile!?

    You need to go on the website – not the app.

    NB – there is currently a £25 withdrawal fee due to higher than normal ETH gas prices. I expect this to come down soon as there has been a lot of backlash from the community and gas prices seem to have come down. So it may not be worthwhile withdrawing until you’ve built up more PLU rewards.
