Since it’s launch, the Curve Card has been featured multiple times on Travel Hacking Tutor. The card is perfect if you are looking to earn points when withdrawing cash, earn points on purchases, and reduce foreign exchange fees. However, since the 1st June, Curve customers who used a Tesco Bank credit card as a funding card were being recharged incorrectly. This meant¬†3.99% cash advance fees on every purchase where being added by Tesco Bank. The great news is that this issue has now been resolved, and there are no more cash advance fees for Curve customers who choose to use a Tesco Bank credit card as a funding source.

Curve made the announcement yesterday evening through their Twitter account. Even better news is that Tesco are refunding customers who were incorrectly charged cash advance fees for transactions made on Curve cards since the issue was first highlighted on 1st June.

If you was impacted by the issue then it’s now safe to switch your funding card back to a Tesco Bank credit card.

Use Your Curve Card Abroad To Save On FX Fees

If your planning on using your Curve card abroad make sure that you have setup your account with a funding card, and always remember to pay in the local currency. Curve will then automatically convert the transaction, using the Mastercard foreign exchange rate, from the local currency to your funding card currency (which most likely will be GBP).
