Ha, invited to try this out in Beta. Tried to complete the form, one of the fields was malformed and wouldn’t allow input (“What are your monthly outgoings?”). Submitted anyway and was emailed to say that I had been unsuccessful. It invited you to contact them, and I emailed them and asked why. Heard nothing for a while, then they emailed back to say it was due to me not answering the above question. So I told them it wouldn’t allow input, then they came back the next day and said that it had happened to lots of people, and could I reapply? Well, no, because when you click on the Curve Credit Beta key, it just says “Sorry, not this time”…
“Oh” came back the reply, “we didn’t know that”. “Tell me what your outgoings are”. So I duly did, and they said you will have a response in 3 working days. 5 working days later, the same response. I’ve emailed them again, and they said “We’re looking into it”.
Add to that, the separate palaver with Curve Rewards, which they emailed thousands of people about, most of whom didn’t actually have it in the version they had, nor could they download an update.
Curve is run out of the backroom of a pub - well, at least it feels like that.
