Forgot to take money from Postomat (using Revolut)

So it happened. The day I feel old. I went to Postfinance postomat half-asleep, I put my revolut card, wanted to take out 80 chf, I thought I forgot to unlock ATM transition so started fiddling around in the App while the postomat did spit out the card (which I took) and the Money (which I did not notice and didn’t took) so the ATM reingested the money after 30 seconds.

But I still have a negative outgoing position on Revolut. I guss it takes time to transfer the money back to revolut. I couldn’t find anything in the Revolut FAQ or Forum and I could not post there in the community.

Does anybody has had similar experience maybe with other banks/credit cards? How long does it takes?
I put myself a notification in one month to check again and see if it was canceled. Hopefullly it will happen sooner.

Sorry about your temporary loss. You’ll get your money back once Postfinance checks the ATM and find out who left the money. I have no idea how much time it will cost though.

Happened to me once as well… The only difference being that I used a Postcard on the postomat. They refunded without charge in that case.

I’m picturing in my mind something funny… I didn’t realize the post-debitcard is called postcard in english ahahah


It’s the secret trick to free money :wink:

10 days later the money is still not back - I will maybe start investigating with revolut
