Financial Super App Curve Launches Update to Offer Protection on Debit Cards

Financial super app Curve, which consolidates all your debit and credit cards into one card and app, has just launched its first ever credit card in the UK.

The new Curve credit card “has all the bells and whistles of Curve, supercharged with greater security and flexibility.”

Customers link their existing cards “to a digital Curve Wallet, and whichever card they select in the app is then charged when they use their Curve credit card to pay.”

There is one major difference though “that makes Curve credit cards one of the safest and most secure ways to pay – because Curve is now a credit card, all eligible purchases will now have section 75 protection.”

Even purchases charged to a debit card. Section 75 is “the gold standard in customer protection and is regulated under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.”

Curve also took the chance “to introduce some new benefits to its product, namely its unique credit offering – Curve Flex.”

With the new Curve credit card, Curve customers “will have the power to reduce their borrowing costs and increase their rewards with Flex.”

With Flex, Curve customers can split “almost any future or past purchases into monthly installments with just a tap.” In the near future, Curve plans to “expand Flex benefits, introducing the ability to refinance expensive credit card debt with a lower cost amortized loan.”

It will also introduce the option “to move your entire balance to 0% balance transfer cards. Watch this space.”

The new Curve credit card also “offers a better experience at hotels and car rental companies, allowing customers to put a deposit down with their Curve credit card, even if a debit card is selected as the payment card in the app or their balance is insufficient for the deposit.”

Other Curve benefits “like cashback, Go Back in Time®, Smart Rules, Zero FX, and Anti-Embarrassment Mode will all remain available on Curve.”

This new announcement by Curve joins “a host of new announcements they’ve done recently, with the new Curve App Design (Curve 2.0) and the recent £58M raise.”
