Ah, all the things we could do if we had a little money…
Cashback programmes are boring and confusing. You have to spend more money than you need to meet the alluring introductory offer and often have to wait months to reap the benefits.
Travelling into work, picking up a quick meal deal or ordering an orange mocha frappuccino; you spend money everyday and usually don’t get anything in return. This didn’t spark us joy and we wanted to do something about it.
We thought our existing cashback programme was good but we were convinced that we could make it even better. Better not only for our customers but as an alternative to the stagnant cashback market. We bring you Curve Cash.
Curve Cash introduces an extended list of 100+ retailers including Tesco, TFL, Uber, Amazon, Netflix, Pret a Manger, Carrefour, Aldi, Boots, McDonald’s and many, many more across the UK and Europe). The rewards are loaded instantly into your brand new Curve Cash card and can be used anywhere Mastercard is accepted.
You will need to choose either 3 or 6 retailers depending on which Curve card you have and will earn 1% instant Curve Cash on the purchases you make at these retailers – earning money from you doing you!
Choose wisely as you can’t change your retailers once you have selected them.

Who can get Curve Cash?
Curve Cash is available for all new customers both in the UK & eligible EEA countries.
If you get rewards for all spend, then you will still receive these from your credit card provider, Existing Curve Blue cardholders are not eligible for Curve Cash and you will stop receive Curve Cashback after your 90 day introductory offer expires. All new customers who sign up for Curve Blue will have the introductory offer of 90 days rewards where they earn 1% of their spend at 3 selected retailers.
Curve Black cardholders who signed up after 16th of February 2018 will finish their 90 days with rewards from their selected 6 retailers, then earn 1% of their spend with 3 retailers of their choosing from the extended list. If you’ve already finished your 90 days, you can choose your new retailers now.
If you are an existing Curve Metal cardholder (who signed up after 16th February 2018) whose rewards period has expired, you will be able to reselect 6 retailers, including ones that you selected before, and will earn 1% cashback at each for an unlimited time.
What if I am on the original Curve Rewards programme?
Customers who signed up before the 16th of February 2018 will remain on their current program by default and can move to Curve Cash where you will have access to the extended list of retailers. Please be aware that when you move to Curve Cash, you cannot go back afterwards. Curve Blue cardholders who signed up before the 16th of February will get 90 days with 1% rewards from 3 retailers.
What about Curve Black Legacy?
Curve Black Legacy customers are not eligible for Curve Cash. Subscribe to Curve Black for unlimited 1% rewards with 3 retailers, or move to Curve Blue for 90 days rewards earning with 3 retailers. All customers who signed up for Curve Black before 28th of January 2019 and are not currently subscribing to Curve Black are on the extended free trial and eligible for the Curve Black Legacy tier.
How does Curve Cash work?
Every time you spend at one of your selected retailers, your points will be added to your in-app Curve Rewards card and each point is equal to 1p.
If you spend £3.00 on your morning coffee at Pret you will earn 3p. If you spend £60 when filling up your car at BP, you’ll earn 60p in Curve Cash. All of which is instantly stored to your in-app Curve Rewards card.
How Do I Spend Curve Cash?
When you are ready to splash your Curve Cash, simply select your Curve Rewards card as the payment source in the app and pay as you would normally with your Curve card (in-store and online).
When you’re planning to splash out with those Curve Cash points, you’ll need to make sure you have enough points saved up to cover the cost of whatever you’re planning to spend them on. Oh and by the way, you can’t withdraw Curve Cash from an ATM.
