This RevolutionCard is a product of RevolutionMoney which launched RevolutionMoneyExchange (a PayPal like service) earlier this year. I reported on their $25 sign-up bonus that they had offered when they launched (I don't think this $25 bonus is offered any longer).
For those concerned with credit card theft and/or identity theft, the RevolutionCard has some nice features which are described in the benefits page:
- Each transaction requires your 4 digit PIN
- Neither your name or other personal data is listed on the card
- allows you to create temporary PINs for online purchases
The only problem with this credit card is that it might not be accepted in many places. There's a list of who accepts it at this webpage. Not all stores accept PIN-based cards.
Thanks to the readers who emailed me or commented on this promotion.
