Ratings and Reviews
Some great features
Generally I think this is a great concept only needing one card, although I generally use applepay which removes the need for me to carry any cards with me. The feature that I find the most useful is the ‘Go back in time’ which allows you to swap transactions on to a different card. The only reason that I gave 4 stars is that I have had 2 occasions in a short space of time where a transaction has been charged twice on my account because the terminal told me it had declined or I needed to insert the card even though it had already debited my account. Customer service takes about 2 days to get back to you and the response was that it would normally be refunded back within 10 working days. On these occasions they were small amounts, however if they were larger amounts that would cause me major concern. So all in all it’s useful but at times unreliable.
While this is a great idea you are do you have to be quite concerned that you are giving a company all of your card details with all of the providers that you are with. Not only that they also have access to all your transactions when and where items were brought!
I contacted support regarding a “fraudulent transaction” which was invested however I found the support had an I don’t care attitude! They would contradict each other. If your support team don’t care about my security does anyone at Curve? Using ‘bank grade’ security is great but not if you haven’t locked the safe due to staff saying oh it’s secure there was a key around here somewhere?
I liked the idea but second thoughts after my run in with support left me concerned by staff understanding. Oddly it isn’t the potentially fraudulent transaction itself that has me concerned me but rather the way support has handled it! Faith lost.

Next-gen personal finance
There is a lot to love about the whole Curve experience. The app is brilliantly designed, and makes what could be a horrible setup process straightforward and even pleasurable. And then about a week later your card arrives and it’s also beautiful, and using it has been great so far. For many people, Curve will be a god-send - there is now finally a way to track and manage cashless spending. However, I don’t know how useful Curve will be in say, a years’ time. All the traditional banks and card issuers are updating their apps to give better visibility over spending and for many this will be good enough. For them, Curve is just another card and complication to carry around.
