All the great features you get with neon free are also included with neon metal: a Swiss account with one Mastercard for everything, affordable and transparent prices – everything digital, simple and secure in one app.

With neon metal, you also get a high-quality metal card and free cash withdrawals anywhere in the world. And that’s not all – you also get mobile phone insurance, three additional years’ warranty on electronic devices, a best-price guarantee and ticket insurance. As if that weren’t enough, you can also unlock other high-calibre shopping, cyber and travel insurance packages, just by using your metal card. Neon metal has a minimum duration of 12 months. 

Alongside the many brilliant features you get with neon free, your app also includes a special neon metal section in your profile. That’s where we’ll show you all your neon metal benefits and you’ll see which insurance packages you’ve already unlocked (and how far you’ve got to go until you unlock the next one).

neon metal is yours for 15 CHF a month.

The 15 CHF will always be charged at the beginning of the month – so you will always pay for each new month in advance.

If you meet the requirements (age, place of residence, tax liability), you can download the app easily via the Apple Store, Google Play Store or the Huawei AppGallery. Then grab your smartphone, passport or ID and residence permit, make sure you have a good internet connection and sit in a quiet corner for just under 10 minutes while you follow the app instructions. During these 10 minutes, you’ll select the neon metal account, enter your personal details, confirm these via a free video call or using photo identification and set your login code. That’s it. We’ll take care of the rest! Click here to read about the identification process in detail.

It’s so cool that you’re craving that metal feeling! Open up your neon app, click on «Profile» and then, under your name at the top, click on «neon free». You will then see your active account (neon free); switch to the neon metal overview by swiping right twice. Tap on «Get neon metal» and follow the steps.

First off, freeze your card in the app under «Profile», «Your card» and «Freeze Card». Then, you can order a new metal card. The metal card is highly valuable, so it’ll cost you 80 CHF – this is just to cover our costs (we don’t earn any money on it!). In exchange, you’ll have your unique all-metal card back and you’ll probably take even better care of it now. ;)

Quite simply: yes! You can pay with it as usual at the checkout via terminal or contactless. Mobile payment also works as before, of course.

Minimalist design meets 14 grams of stainless steel:

your metal card is a strong statement of your extraordinary lifestyle and works just like an ordinary plastic card.

If you opt for neon metal, you need to stick with this account for a year. Why? Because your metal card is unique – and expensive. That said, you can switch back to neon free at any time once a year has passed. We’ll be really sad to see you go, but we want to make it as easy as possible for you: open up your neon app, tap on «Profile» and then, under your name at the top, click on «neon metal». You will then see your active account (neon metal); switch to neon free by swiping left twice. This also means you’ll lose all the neon metal benefits you’ve earned – but you can keep your cool metal card until it’s expired.
