The 3 most underrated Curve features you're not using nearly enough

By Charlotte Golzari08 Jan 2021

You rave about being able to Go Back in Time. You’re obsessed with making mobile payments. And you couldn’t live without your cards in one. 

While these features do deserve the hype, there are some others that we think deserve a little more attention. 

So, in no particular order, here are our top 3 underrated features. 

Fronted

There are things you can’t pay for with your credit card. Like, HMRC payments and credit card bills. Well Fronted lets you pay off your credit card bill with another credit card. Just think of all the points you’ll earn...

There’s a 1.5% fee per transaction for Curve Blue and Black customers, but if you’ve upgraded to Metal, you’ll enjoy this feature totally free. 

More on Fronted here. 

Loyalty 

There two types of people in this world: 

A) Ones that lose their loyalty cards or keep them in a drawer. 

B) Ones that never sign up for loyalty cards ‘cause they know they’ll lose them or keep them in a drawer. 

Which one are you? It doesn’t matter. Because let’s face it, we’ve all been losing out on rewards. Until now. 

We’ve created a (digital) home for your cards. And all it takes is heading to the Curve app, tapping ‘Loyalty’ and adding any card with a barcode. 

We know what you’re thinking. Nice try, Curve. But I can already do that with Apple Wallet and Google Pay. 

But here’s the catch: we’ve built the Curve Wallet so that you can add any👏 card 👏 with 👏 a barcode 👏. Some other ideas: gym membership cards, library cards and even gift cards.

So get shopping and start saving. Just try not to forget your phone.
