I have got the £10.00 but after I spend the £10.00 the card is going in the bin. I have used it in stores and I get charged the correct money. I tried it with Dorothy Perkins got charged 2p extra, I tried it yesterday with HP and they took 4p extra. I think curve charges you when they are meant to hold the money. Tesco plus take £2.00 to register the card to authorise the card but the bank isn't meant to charge you. Curve card took the payment and I called tesco and they didn't believe this and I had to call the bank and do a fraud case on tesco. I spend £20 on grocery and 1% is only 20p so it's not really that worth it anymore

Do you know how long it takes to show the £10, just created an account but no money to be seen.

They do that to verify the card, It's usually automatically refunded

Yes that's true, but the tesco plus app doesn't take any money, the bank holds it for you then releases it so £2.00 was not meant to be taken out in the first place. Because it's curve card they took the money and tesco had no idea about the transaction so I had to show bank statements which was unnessasary and not worth the time or patience

Use curve and once you get used to the aggregator idea, works pretty well

You cannot use it online as there is no card number or security number. It’s just a chip and strip card so physical payments only. Contactless too.

How do you do it without car numbers though?
Now supported in Google Pay A great work around to any Mastercard/Visa that isn't.
Hi I signed up to Curve and put a Virgin MasterCard on it, if it's good I'll add a few more cards but
not until I'm happy with it. I got my Curve card today, I activated it on the app and used it for an online purchase at George/Asda. It's shown my transaction on Curve app plus on my Virgin account. So far, so good. Now I need to know when you get the £10 promotion? Is it when the transaction gets paid on your Virgin card or will it be put on in the next day or so?
any info appreciated. (P.s. It took £1.41 to verify my Virgin card but repaid that no problem)
This from their Q&A:
3DSecure - we will ask your card issuer to approve a micro transaction. Your card issuer may ask you for your password or SMS confirmation. The micro charge will be refunded immediately.
Microcharge - we will charge a small amount to your card. You will need to check your bank statement (it can take a few days to appear) and enter the code you see in the Curve app. The micro charge will be refunded immediately.
This looks really good but I can't get my head around which card will be used when making purchases? For example, I have a Halifax clarity card which I only use when travelling abroad, how does Curve allow me to choose that card when making a transaction?

You choose the card you want to use in the app.

I've been using it for about a year and despite some teething troubles its working out well.

I don't use the Premium stuff on it but its now my everyday card I keep with me. I have had a few issues here and there but nothing major.

I always keep a emergency physical credit card on me tucked away in a bag or wallet somewhere just in case but I have had a few times where something like a Asda self checkout has just not accepted it and I've had to fall back to the CC.

It has my Natwest card, Virgin CC and Revolut attached to it and have had no problems switching betyween the three.
Curve invested quite a bit to get Amex integration then amex pulled the plug.
Don't really see the point of the card after that unless you are going abroad.
Monzo is a better bet as they are a registered bank now, and the app is easy to use and instant spend etc. Has great non UK transaction support and support in general.

Did you get the extra charges refunded in the end? I am considering curve but this kind of stuff holds me back.
