Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Curve Card

Curve Card is a payment product that lets you connect multiple credit and debit cards and carry just a single card with you.

It can be a useful way of earning points and miles if a retailer does not accept credit cards but does accept debit cards. It also has very low, often zero, FX fees when used abroad.

Our introduction to Curve and why you should consider getting a Curve Card is here.

You can get £10 for free if you sign up for Curve via this link.
