Reposting this as its still working (expires june 2020), a fantastic offer well worth taking advantage of!

I am using the card daily and getting 1% cash back from Amazon, Tesco and Sainsburys with the free card. I have already done this but for those of you that havent it genuinely works, sign up for/download the app, open an account and use the code FREE5 to redeem the free £10. You need to activate the card and use it once to redeem the £10. You will automatically be able to check all your finances in one place, you will get a 1% cashback offer for the first 90 days on the free offer and you can pick 3 retailers or 6 if you upgrade, they include Amazon, Apple, Sainsburys, Tesco, Uber, Spotify and many more!

Curve Blue (Free): 1% instant cashback on up to three pre-selected retailers for 90 days. Curve Black: 1% instant cashback on up to three pre-selected retailers indefinitely. Curve Metal: 1% instant cashback on up to six pre-selected retailers indefinitely. Combine all your cards into one using Curve and get £10 FREE (1% Cashback / Payment Protection / Free Spend Abroad) when you join using code FREE5.

No section 75 protection as you get with a regular credit card.

Literally says in the description the protection Curve offer.


Just stating a fact , it doesn't have section 75 protection and it is debatable whether their own scheme is as good. As it is their own scheme it is totally under their control too , they decide if your claim is valid against their own rules. In the T&Cs it also states '20.2. We will not be liable for the goods or services that you purchase using your Curve Card.'

If you are already a Curve card holder there is £5 up for grabs just by using the card before the end of the year. It comes in as Curve credit. I bought a packet of crisps and got the £5 reward straight away. Bonus!

Some blurb from the email:

You must make a successful transaction (Curve Send transactions do not qualify) before 23:59:59 on the 31st of December, 2019 in order to qualify for this reward. You will be provided Curve cash worth £5 to your Curve Cash card within 4 working days but in no case later than the 10th of January, 2020. Please note that the Curve Cash can only be used in accordance with the redemption policy as set out here. This scheme is only available for the users that have received this email to their email address. Customers will be verified before the reward is applied.
Is this any better than revolut?

Different product. One card for all your cards (apart from Amex)
whether or not its a good card its a free £10 which will go a long way for so many people in the lead up to Christmas

They offer their own (better) cover...
Is it a prepaid card?
DudeDERAILED07/12/2019 23:09

No, it's more like a conduit, you attach all your cards to it, and select which one you want it to charge to.

Make a mistake, don't worry, you have a 2 week "time machine" option where you can do a credit back, and charge to a different card.

The main hack is that it qualifies as a debit card, so you can register it with airtime rewards, and charge it through to a credit card that also offers cashback, and curve also offer cashback, so you get three layers of cashback...

You could even take cash out on it, and it charged it to your credit card as a purchase, but I think they've knobbled that now.

Thanks for the explanation. This is very helpful and I have curve confidence
For the same set of retailers, get 1% every time with Amex Platinum Cashback card; and have sec 75 protection. Frankly, I am not sure what purpose Curve serves other than for those who already have too many cards. I just have 2 credit cards - the Amex cashback and Halifax Clarity. Covers almost all requirements.

Well, for those really big purchases, use another card 🤷 or avoid Curve altogether.
Been a curve user since the beta. It's the best thing in my wallet. Payment protection is great, have used it once with little hassle. Insurance on premium (I have metal) is spot on, have claimed once on the gadget cover.
I use it primarily to get good xchange rates on foreign transactions.

Not everyone can get an Amex platinum, and not every shop takes it... Also, you have a £25 annual fee.

Curve used to allow Amex, but that got stopped as everyone was taking £200 a day out of the cash machine and getting paid £2.

I like curve because I have two different businesses, it links to xero, and I can go back and reassign expenses to the correct bank account 2 weeks after the event...
All you need to do is register you card with paypal it will then give you the £5

Yes, it also acts as a good foreign spend card... Fee free cash withdrawals as well.

The benefit for me is convenience rather than cashback: my phone has NFC for transactions up to £30 and I keep the curve card (linked to my personal and business debit/credit cards) in my phone case for transactions over that amount. So I never need to carry a wallet, get instant usage alerts, and if I put a business transaction on my personal card by mistake then I can reverse it later.

You can add Curve to Google Pay now, not sure if Apple pay

Good point. The card is still needed where you are forced to use a physical card and/or transactions over £30.

The absence of American Express is annoying though.
I must've missed the part where you input the code - is that somewhere in the setup or can you add a code in the app when it's all set up?

Hi Rob,

Thanks for getting in touch.

We recently experienced an issue that meant you were unable to add the code to your account. Thanks for providing the code, we can now retrospectively add this to your account.

Once you have made your first transaction your points will be added to your rewards account within 7 days.

If there is anything else we can help with please don't hesitate to get back in touch.

Best wishes,

back now or later?
Still showing as amex not accepted on the website
@Curve_Official I signed up with a referral link earlier this week and completed my first transaction. How long until the promo £5 (or £10?) arrives in my account? Thanks.
zaheer200313/12/2019 00:12

I thought it was back. Having spoken to them it sounds like it won't be. Amex probably somehow ban it as the card technology is different
yay
It is a great card and app, I use it everyday. However, their CS sucks, hope you won't need their help
@Curve_Official I also could not add the code to my account. I've tried contacting Curve by 2 emails and still not heard anything back. Not great cs
A bit confused. Is this for £5 or £10?
