My Friday Favourite this week is Curve – Combine all your Debit and Credit Cards into one card.
What is it?
Curve connects all of your credit (and debit) cards into a single card and app.
How can it help me?
How many credit or debit cards do you have? I have half a dozen, including a bank account debit card, two personal credit cards, a business account card and a business credit card.
Curve allows you to securely connect all of those cards into a single credit card. Via the Curve app, you can then choose which of your credit cards the Curve card represents when you next use it.
So if you’re purchasing a coffee in a business meeting, set your Curve card to your business credit card. The Curve card will remain your business credit card until you change it via the app.
When you’re buying groceries at the supermarket later that day, set your Curve card to your personal credit card. The Curve card will register the purchases against your personal credit card.
If you’ve charged a purchase to the wrong credit card via Curve, you can go back and reallocate the payment to the correct credit card afterwards.
As well as allowing you to carry a single credit card which can be used as any of your credit or debit cards, the Curve app gives you instant updates on purchases made with your Curve card. You’ll spot unauthorised charges instantly and be able to freeze the card from within the Curve app.
Curve also allows you to travel without any hidden currency fees. The Curve card allows you to make purchases via your own credit and debit cards but charges no fees when used for foreign transactions.
How much does it cost?
Curve is free to use.
