If you have a Curve Card – we explain in this article why it will make your miles and points collecting easier – you may be interested to know that the company has just raised a further $95 million in growth funding.
This takes the total amount raised so far to $175 million.
I must admit, I’m impressed.
I was beginning to think that the company was struggling to make the final breakthrough – the one which takes you from being a niche ‘early adopters’ product to something which has mainstream interest. Do you know anyone who doesn’t have an interest in miles and points who has one?
£2 billion has been spent on the platform so far, which is what I think is driving the interest of investors. This means, if you have spent £50,000 on your card (probably on Premium Bonds …..) then the company was able to raise $2,375 on the back of your spending.
