Forums Payment cards Barclaycard Avios Revolut Cash Advance Fee

  • ahow35 12 posts

    I can confirm that topping up Revolut with the Barclaycard Avois Mastercard incurred a cash advance fee.

    Tested with a £10 deposit which resulted in an additional £2.99 cash transaction fee.

    Posting as thought it may be useful to know!

    The IHG Mastercard issued by Creation only started charging a cash advance fee on revolut transactions about a month ago.

    Does this show up immediately or when the statement is issued? thanks

    I have a non-UK mastercard that doesn’t charge a cash advance fee with Revolut, but it has stopped giving points on Revolut topups and Revolut now charges a fee to use that card.

    You’ve said this a few times, but I can confirm I hold a UK issued MasterCard and am not charged cash advance fees with Revolut.

    Interest charges yes, cash advance no.

    Whilst not expecting you to spill all the beans @SteveJ , can you confirm if this is a points earning card ?!

    It’s probably the card that has its own dedicated bashing thread on this forum, though I was under the impression that they started charging cash advance fees a few months ago as well?

    No – multiple users on here, including me, have confirmed Creation cards now charge a 3% cash handling fee on such transactions…

    A couple of us confirmed in mid March that this Avios card was charging 2.99% cash advance fees for Revolut top ups.
    The charge appeared a couple of days after the transaction.

    Wish this site would turn on basic functions such as the search facility.

    The search function is enabled, and I did actually spend quite a considerable amount of time searching for related posts. Didn’t find anything so thought I would make my own to help people interested in the same question. Easier to find the answer to a question when the title states the actual question.

    Of those I know of there is a no longer available to new card holders points earning card and a still available to new card holders sudo cback (vouchers) card, both Mastercards, both charge interest but do not charge cash advance fees.

    🤫 I hope Mr X wasn’t there, would hate for him to have to share the same hotel with a miscreant like you.

    I know that you are falsely pointing the finger at me, but I can only think that you must be X, as you have informed Barclays compliance seven times in the last month on various threads that you don’t get fees/interest topping up Revolut from your Hilton Barclaycard which appears to be a direct request to shut down that route.

    I wish someone would shut you down, JDB!!

    You love to hate JDB, Anna but he serves you right. Why don’t you go defraud some other companies?

    I’m not the one who keeps advertising to the world what she is doing! It’s quite funny to see those pretending to be players, asking lots of questions, saying they are successfully doing x or y and eliciting incriminating information/boasts from others about their activities. The problem is in your midst, not ‘Mr X’ who by the way is not just one person if you see all the correspondence, not just the limited stuff published so far.

    Clearly you’ve no idea what constitutes fraud, @Naveen, why don’t you educate yourself a bit before posting potentially slanderous comments?

    Quite amusing really – telling @Naveen “educate yourself” when he may have used slightly the wrong word! He was of course on the right track, as indeed you believed you were in using the word “slanderous” when you must have meant ‘libellous’.

    @NorthernLass Interesting. Why don’t you log a complaint with Creation about my comment? It seems that’s what you do all day anyway.

    NorthernLass 8,508 posts

    Well – libel is a “published false statement”, which this falls rather short of, hence the choice of a more innocuous term.

    @naveen
    – personal abuse does not constitute a coherent argument (or comply with HFP’s Tc and Cs), FYI.

    JDB 4,861 posts

    @NorthernLass FYI, the difference between slander and libel is not one of degree. The former is a spoken statement, the latter a written one so the use of the word “slanderous” in the original post was simply incorrect; hence the delicious irony of your comment telling the poster to educate himself…
