Curve Feedback

(Joe) #1266

Hey, I had the exact same issue with adding Monzo card to Curve today. What fixed it for me was to choose ‘change card image’ on the curve app. Once I chose the red Monzo image I was able to verify the card with curve.

Thank you. That fixed it :+1::+1::+1::+1:

Curve seemed to have a moment though.
Guessing the random amount transaction will refund at some point.

They’ve been very slow recently. I guess there’s been a lot of catching up to do

I have 575 reward points. I’m right in thinking that’s £5.75 to spend, aren’t I? I can’t find anything in Curve help.

And I just have to set the reward card as the underlying card?

(Splodf) #1271

That’s right.

Yeah you just switch to it in app and spend away.

Cool. Ta very much. :+1:


Use settle up or to pay it straight into your current account!

Does that work?


Tbh, I haven’t tried it with rewards for a while, because there haven’t been any :joy:, but Curve with settleup and has worked just fine recently (since the Curve relaunch, for example).

There was a whole thread discussing Curve and settleup on the Starling forum - RIP. I’m surprised Starling hasn’t locked it down yet - Monzo radically tightened up the topup limits, for pretty obvious reasons, but Starling seems to have left it


Be careful with an underlying credit card though - some will treat the transactions as cash advances, eg Natwest, Tesco, possibly others

Splendid idea!


Starling don’t allow you to top up by card now, I think the limits are reasonably low for settle up but doing so from a credit card would be treated as a cash advance now, since curve (rightly) were made to forward the merchant data. Definitely use the reward card to pay into your account though.


The settle up allowance is £250 per day, so pretty generous.

I have used Curve with MBNA, aqua, HSBC and Halifax credit cards for settle up over the last six months with no cash advance fees


Don’t be surprised to get a nasty surprise

I can still top up by card.

(Marcel Ruhf) #1282

I think they only removed it for new customers.


Actually I can on my original personal account but not on my joint account. I think it was not made available to accounts opened after around August/september


Settle Up is effectively the same thing anyway - just use your own link


Yep, i never leave stuff lying around in rewards, always shift it via
