Requires signup to be useful


Unfortunately the password requirements are far too insecure for me (letters & numbers only) so I did not want to give them my information. Without that the app has customs info and a list of stores in various cities. Nothing I couldn’t find using Google.

Developer Response

Thank you for the feedback. Without logging into the app, the app also has useful features, such as the ability to track your refund status and use our refund calculator.

Decent enough app - needs some improvements


This app functions well enough but would easily be improved by two minor adjustments.

Issue 1: If you create your Global Blue account via this app, you will STILL need to go to the website to complete the registration process.

Issue 2: The Global Blue "virtual card" is not integrated into Apple Passbook. You must log in each time (with an active internet connection), navigate to the "virtual card" and proceed from there. Many travelers do not use their phone's data plan whilst on holiday so please be judicious as to your own use.

If these two issues are addressed in subsequent app updates, this app would receive 5 stars from this reviewer.

Deleted my data


I was happy at first with the app, however suddenly it stopped working and when I reinstalled it, it removed all my tax forms which I have added manually and only kept those added through the shop system, today when I checked my refund tracker, guess what? It deleted one of the store added forms??! Very disappointed, next time I will use notes to save my doc ids. 😔
