I wrote in glowing terms about Curve some weeks ago.
Manufactured Spending, has been all the rage in some Frequent Flyer circles and numerous methods, mostly US based have come and gone. The system usually means withdrawing cash or buying a gift card and then using the cash or card to repay the miles earning card used to generate the original transaction.
I warned in my article that Curve were wise to this and so it seems they have changed their rules to limit cash withdrawals to £200 per month, after which a 2% fee applies for subsequent withdrawals.
Pass along, no manufactured spend to see here!
Hardly surprising this has happened in truth, but a little disappointing none the less, I am still sure there is a place for the Curve card, especially with its superior Customer Service over Supercard, the Travelex alternative.
