Great when it works
This is a great idea I love that I can use one card. However HSBC took umbrage to the fact all transactions were in the same place. Not curves fault but it seriously erodes your trust. Imagine being in Tesco and it declines or in a restaurant. It was (do not honour) and hsbc also blocked my normal cards. You have to go in branch to sort out. This then happened again until HSBC apologised and said it won’t happen again. They paid £100 compensation.
With Curve refunds didn’t make sense but now they have fixed this. It does bother me if you get a decline where you have to pay like a restaurant. You look like a fool. Also certain transactions get blocked because curve class it as high risk but if its me that’s initiated the transaction I should be able to press a button and then try again as I’ve personally approved it.
The app seriously needs to be a universal one. It’s still iPhone only and doesn’t look right on an iPad. It’s really frustrating.
Also the fees are all over the shop. If you withdraw £20 15 times abroad over a week and weekend there are literally 5 different ways it could pan out with fees albeit very small. Would it not be better to charge 0.5% on everything and have no cash withdrawal fees and no weekend rate it would be far simpler. Stop copying revolut.

Fantastic , ignore the silly reviews
App is the online counterpart to the curve card. You can add Visa or Master cards to it to use as the underlying source of funds for the Curve card. App shows almost all transactions instantly and has a rewind feature incase you want to change the underlying card for a previously made transaction. If you were invited to the closed beta for Amex cards then those work too, essentially letting you use your Amex in places that don’t usually accept it. Those of us who were early adopters still have the beta curve rewards with cash back options on places such as Marriott, though I hear anyone who applies now will only have an introductory cashback period with select retailers.
Ignore those who are saying that the app is a scam that takes your money. These people do not seem to understand what a pre authorisation charge is. When you add a new card it will hold £1 or £2 for a short time and release this back to you a few days later at most. It will do this to each new card you attach and is common practice.
Check payments being applied correctly and have alternate ready when travelling
I used Curve happily for a few months albeit I found it wasn’t accepted in some countries abroad -most recently in Cape Verde in Dec at all and in quite a few places in Norway in Jan - so you do still need to carry the underlying cards when travelling. I had been waiting for it to support Amex which is now not going to happen.
My problem came after some kind of update to the software in Jan which initially locked me out of the app (no problem I thought until sorted as had wallet on MasterCard which i use) - only to find out that with the patch to the software Curve itself had switched payment to use my bank Visa. Most of Jan/Feb taken incorrectly direct from bank whilst i was trying to remember to sort out Curve login. After several weeks of trying to resolve and complain with Curve I gave up.
My advice would be if using and on a tight budget- check daily that payments continue to be applied to correct card (mine did until they updated software). AND big one - bring an alternate payment method when travelling as Curve alone would have left us stranded.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to post your review.
We are very sorry to hear that you experienced declines whilst you were away travelling. You can use your Curve card anywhere in the world that accepts Mastercard so it disappointing to hear that this hasn't been the case.
The issues regarding your selected card being changed automatically in the app can sometimes occur if a manual change did not go through successfully due to poor mobile/wifi connection or a communication error with our server. Our team would like to know more about why these declines happened and to investigate why you card was changed following the system update. Can you please contact our Support Team on email@example.com, marking the subject of your email 'App Store Review - Follow Up'.
