As far as I am concerned, it’s a downgrade.

Look at what happens to the core, historical features of Curve once you go from Legacy to Curve Black. We get screwed on both home and foreign withdrawals, as well as on currency conversion. The latter two being the very things I got the card in the first place.

As per the “too good to be true”, it’s actually a win win situation for them. We weren’t paying monthly fees anyway. So they are not losing anything by “upgrading” us for free to Curve Black. But they get to charge other fees to those of us we make an intese use of the card (read: me).

Never made much out of cash back, really.
