Curve, the smart card that lets users keep all their credit and debit cards on a single card, has unveiled the world’s first metal ‘all your cards in one’ card that opens a world of exclusive benefits tailored to meet the needs of the “Experience Generation”.
Curve Metal offers all the current benefits of Curve and more. Metal customers can now enjoy unlimited fee-free spending abroad and gain 1% cashback from even more premium retailers, such as Harrods, Selfridges, Uber, Amazon and more.
Curve Metal customers will also benefit from an all-inclusive gadget insurance covering existing and new gadgets, generous worldwide overseas travel insurance that covers cancellation and inconvenience, and Collision Damage Waiver insurance for car hire.
The iconic metal card is beautifully crafted out of 18 grams of stainless steel, fully contactless and available in three colours: Blue Steel, Rose Gold and Limited-Edition Curve Red. Just 5,000 of the Limited-Edition Curve Red cards are available in a one-off run, allocated on a first come first serve basis, making it a highly exclusive proposition.
When using the Curve card, customers continue to reap all the benefits from their premium account subscriptions in addition to the features offered by Curve. These include the ability to spend with any card everywhere Mastercard is accepted without any currency conversion fee, real-time transaction notifications, double rewards and the time travel feature – which allows users to reallocate transactions to different accounts after the transaction has been completed.
Curve is not a bank. Instead, Curve connects all your cards into one card that saves you money, earning you more rewards, and gives you a better more convenient and secure user experience. Curve’s unique ‘All your cards in one’ technology means customers can upgrade their banking experience by syncing their debit and credit cards onto the Curve app and leave home with just one Curve card. This offering becomes very appealing in an ever-accelerating world where our finances are being unbundled and disconnected with new players emerging and introducing more specialised cards on a weekly basis.
The Curve card introduced in 2018 packs innovative features into the space of a credit card. In September, Curve introduced world-first technology to eliminate hidden currency conversion fees from card providers, making all cards fee-free when spending abroad and saving customers up to 7% on transactions in foreign countries, without requiring users to pre-buy currencies or use a separate card.
Curve’s user base has soared by 40% each month since the end of its first Beta programme in February 2018. More than 300,000 customers have joined the service, which is backed by Fintech leaders, such as Taavet Hinrikus, CEO and co-founder of Transferwise, and Henry Ritchotte, former COO of Deutsche Bank.
Diego Rivas, Product Lead at Curve said: “Curve is proud to introduce the Curve Metal. Our existing user base, who joined us early on and helped us build this remarkable product, will have early access. Soon after, we expect to open Curve Metal to the world, starting with the UK and slowly expanding to other European countries. Curve Metal reflects our commitment to provide our customers with unparalleled rewards to complement their lifestyles. We designed Curve Metal to be so exquisite, you can start a conversation without saying a word.”
“At Curve, we want everyone to have the ability to choose the services and products they want, when they want them, and have the power to change those choices whenever they want to. With all your cards in one, combined with our world-first ‘Go Back in Time’ feature, your money experience across all your cards and accounts isn’t just upgraded, it’s supercharged with features and services that cannot be found anywhere else”.
