Have been a Curve user from early on and I'm using them daily as my main card. Customer service has been great when I needed them which was only a few times. Their mobile app works well and gets improvements frequently. Go back in time is amazing. Cashback and Curve Cash are working well. They've dealt very well with the Wirecard problem.

Great product if you don't need customer support or if you don't have any transaction issues.
I paid 1500 GBP for plane tickets. The amount showed on my underlying card and in Curve.
A couple of days later, half of the amount was charged again. This time it wasn't showing on Curve and neither they knew about it when asked. Curve was clueless.
Therefore I had to cancel my card for fraud. The next day the second half of the amount was charged, which was not showing on Curve.
At that point, I was basically charged double (3k GBP) and made my credit card unusable because it went over the limit.
I realised by myself that Curve charged me twice which they confirmed afterwards that the airline did those two charges.
In the end, I couldn't use my card for several days (because over the limit) also couldn't use it again because the new card was sent at my home but I was abroad at that point.
Also I had to cancel my card for no reason, since there was no fraud, it was just Curve being clueless about how their system/process works.

Another thing, if you pay something in foreign currency with an extra charge (because weekend or over the fx limit) that charge will still be there even if you change the transaction to a card on that currency.

Curve solves the problem of having to carry all your cards around, as well as brings an additional level of security and comfort as you can freeze your Curve card at any point and get real time notifications of usage.
As someone who is self employed, having both my business and personal cards connected to Curve is hugely helpful. The reporting across your various accounts and cards, and insights in spending is something an individual bank can not provide.

Innovative card

This product is useful as I have many different cards, and rather than carrying all of them, I can just carry Curve with me.

I save HUNDREDS of pounds a year using Curve. From great FX rate, fee-free ATM machines, to my cashback on companies I choose to use. I love it.

Wherever I travel, I only need one card. Even though I've been "stuck" abroad for over a year, this card, this app and this company have NEVER let me down.

My card was hacked! I was in another country. Oh my God, what am I gonna do....??¿???¿ No worries. Got on the app, froze the card INSTANTLY to ensure nothing else was vulnerable. For onto a live chat, told them my problems, not an issue. Old card cancelled instantly, all outstanding transactions checked, and resolved. New card issued. .oh, hang on, I've had a similar thing before, with a back whose name is an acronym of BTS. I was abroad then too, due to be away for at least another month. Could they help me? Could they send it to my address in Spain? No. No. Of course not what was I thinking???? The was not geared up for customer assistance. It was geared up for ease of use by the bank staff. So, my card would be waiting for me when I got home..... But how I was going to get home and how I could eat until then??? not their problems, apparently.

With CURVE however, I explained I wasn't going to be back in the UK for a while, but that I really would need the card. "No problem, where would you like me to send it?" Then I asked, "How much are you going to charge to send it here, to Spain?"

Hold onto your hats. "Nothing. All part of the service"

On top of all of this, my Curve Metal Card included insurance to cover me, and a range of other benefits too.

I now have 3 Fintech accounts and an "old" style one. I'm happy to pay for 2 of them, 1 is free and 1 of them I pay through gritted teeth. Guess which?

I welcomed this product like no others. It has improved with time and I have never experienced any sort of issues. It does everything I would expect from a product like this. My life is much easier since I got this. On top of the possibility to go around with one card, and one PIN, it offers great exchange rates that have saved me hundreds during my vacation and overseas shopping.

After you try Curve, there's no turning back. Life will never be the same. You will be annoyed by the occasional bugs, outages, slow customer service (but once they respond, they're usually very good), features that are announced but never launch, etc. And yet - I can't imagine life without Curve anymore.

I love my curve card. It's literally all my cards in one, and allows me to switch my payments between cards, and also covers me when I have not allowed for sufficient funds in my primary account. The metallic card is lovely and the cashback when available is really welcomed. I wouldn't pay for the premium one as I find the cost-benefit to not be worth it, but the free one is a no brainer.

Great product! Avoid foreign fees by using their card!

The 500 quid /month no foreign transaction fee limit for the free tier is more than enough to cover spending for a short trip in Europe

Curve has become my main card for spending over the past 2 years. Thanks to free FX and cashback, it has saved / earned me hundreds. Thanks to Go Back in Time, it has saved me a lot of time and given me convenience of not carrying around all my cards and not thinking about what to spend it on.
I'm excited about the new features they're planning to launch!
And the card looks slick :-)

Super easy to use fantastic when traveling

The app really makes it very easy to organize receipts. Travel payments have never been so easy and the time travel option for changing payments to cards is fantastic when budgeting. Just need a way to get Amex back on the system and they’d be 5 stars.
