N26 You now offers Partner Discounts

N26 You is the new name for the N26 Black Account. This is N26’s middle offering sitting between their basic N26 account, and their premium N26 Metal account. When N26 announced the rename they promised to add new features and benefits though didn’t announce any specifics. It was widely rumoured that the first two enhancements would be Partner Discounts and the ability to have a back up MasterCard. Partner Discounts has just launched and they are a bit meh. I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting. I knew what I had hoped for – some sort of Lounge Pass…

N26 Black renamed to N26 You

N26 have renamed their N26 Black offering to N26 You. I’ve been a happy N26 Black customer for 2 years now but I am starting to notice that there are a lack of new features being added. With the rename to N26 You, they appeared to only make small changes to the offering – you can now specify what colour card you would like.

It sits between their basic N26 account and their premium N26 Metal account.…

The GoCar Mega Thread

While the vast majority of their GoBases are in Dublin, they are expanding and have GoBases in Galway, Limerick, Killarney, Cork, Waterford, Wexford and more.

A rental must start and end at the same GoBase – you cannot do a one way rental. GoCar has been expanding rapidly and I’ve been using it more now I sold my…

GoCar have reduced their daily rates!

GoCar has really expanded in recent times and I am seeing more GoCars on the roads. I do believe car sharing will be the future but we aren’t quite yet there. Ideally we will reach a critical mass where you are not required to return the car back to its base instead you can leave it at your destination similar to Dublin Bikes. However we are still a long way from that. GoCar are introducing more pricing options which is always good to see. They have recently announced that thru end of July their daily rates for GoCity, GoTripper and…

Expired Requests with Revolut

A lot of my friends and family use Revolut. I have the app and 4 different Revolut cards at this point. I am not Revolut’s biggest fan – I have had bad experiences with their customer support and I find their app very confusing to use, as a result I rarely use Revolut. I never use them for purchases any more, instead I only occasionally send and receive money from friends and family through Revolut. I find it good especially the ability to be able to request money. However, there is a big flaw in this system. If you request…
