Curve and Barclaycard Avios plus

    Whilst the Barclaycard plus card works when spending through Curve, the option of paying off the balance using Curve has now been disabled, you get a lovely little message that they only accept payments from UK debit cards. Still, it was good whilst it lasted (i.e. last month)

    Barclays hasn’t accepted payments via Curve for several years now.

    What about using Curve/Barclaycard to pay off Amex – does that work?

    Rui N.

    Yes.

    Doesn’t work for me! Amex says it doesn’t accept curve. It says something along the lines of . . . “This banking institution is not supported”

    Just tried again – says it needs curve frronted on

    I could do it with Barclaycard via curve with fronted off to pay amex last month (managed to pay 1k off) but now it needs fronted on

    Of course it needs fronted on. That’s a given to pay credit cards…

    Not for me last month, only asks for it now (assuming curve updated their database with new bc avios)

    The “not working on Barclaycard” anymore is hugely frustrating, as it’s one of the reasons I’m a latecomer to Metal (not the only one….). Hey, you win some, you lose some. Are there other cards (beyond Amex) that are good from a points perspective – and which can still be settled via Curve?

    I just want to clarify one thing. I know I’ll have to pay the 1.5% Fronted fee (or get Metal) to be able to pay Amex, but will Barclaycard charge anything e.g. by treating it as a cash-like transaction?

    Last month i paid with the free Barclaycard through curve without fronted on and worked, that loophole is now closed, however i never got a charge on Barclaycard. Try it with curve fronted on for £10 to test it, hopefully you will not be charged from Barclaycard
