    how much can you withdraw overseas cash wise, not clear from the website?

    Hi, according to the draft T&Cs we've seen, you'll be able to withdraw up to 30% of your credit limit (up to a max of £500/day).

    Thanks, MSE Rosie

    So where are they making their money?


    IMHO, a credit card either makes money from the fx spread, charges, interest or fees.


    If they're offering money back on top of the fx rate, then is it marketing, or will the other costs be higher?

    I imagine they'll do what the others (e.g. Monzo, Revolut) are doing/have done.

    That is run a good promotion with the aim of getting lots of customers while making a loss, then change the fee structure with the hope of making a gain.

    Fair game I guess, Just annoying having to apply for something new again and cancel the old one

    Get early access, says one button, and there is a waiting list.

    Does this actually exist yet? Do the so-called founders have accounts? When is it projected to expand to cover those who start waiting now?

    Has anyone moved forward within the queue? Is anyone aware of the implementation timeline, thanks?
  • I received my invitation to apply for the card this morning.

    Do you have any idea what number in the 'waitlist' you were? My position doesn't seem to have moved since I signed up months ago..

    Also, do you use the Tandem app?

    I was not looking at waitlist positron but received invitation to apply last week. After a couple of days of "Oops, something's gone wrong, please try later" I successfully completed it and was immediately offered a £2k limit at 21.9%.

    They gave me thirty days to accept, I probably will if I arrive back in UK by then or soon after. I haven't installed the app so far.

    After the application they seemed to be offering me what looked like a current account, with another 'Get early access' button, but when I pressed it I was taken to a description of the credit card again.
