REVI Credit, how does it work?

REVI Credit by CIMB Bank is a unique product that provides you with a virtual credit line. This facility can be used for any purpose such as shopping, funding a vacation, day-to-day purchases, or emergencies. You can borrow money and make minimum payments until it’s totally paid off.

Is REVI Credit a credit card?

No. REVI Credit may function like a credit card but it’s more than your regular credit card. It allows you to borrow money repeatedly, as much as your credit line would allow. Having a personal credit line through REVI Credit gives you the financial flexibility to cover financial flexibility to cover expenses.

What makes REVI Credit one-of-a-kind is that it does more than what a credit card does. It can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including balance transfers, cash conversions, convert to term loan, and bills payment.

What’s particularly great about REVI Credit is that this personal revolving credit line has instant approval. So, there’s no need to jump through hoops to get approved for REVI Credit. If you’re looking to have access to funds for whatever purpose, this digital credit line is the perfect solution. What’s more, it can be all be done on the digital mobile app

How much is the REVI Credit?

With REVI Credit, you can get a credit line ranging from P1,000 to P250,000; depending on your qualifications, such as credit score and other CIMB criteria.

Interest rates

The REVI Credit interest rate is anywhere from 1% to 5% per month. This is determined by your credit score. The monthly interest rate is pro-rated, which means it’s distributed over the number of days of the loan term.

For instance, if you use REVI Credit to purchase an item worth 500 pesos and wish to pay it in 5 days, your REVI Credit balance will be P504.167.

From: 500 x 5% x 5/30= P4.67

The interest rate is relatively lower than most personal loans, making it an attractive option for those looking for additional financing.
