    Is there anyway to use my Curve cash online?

    Thanks to Rob I got £10 credit and he hopefully got it too. Then I got £5 for making 5 purchases over £5.

    I want to buy a sparkling wine stopper as I’ve drunk half a bottle of Cava tonight, mini celebration and my partner doesn’t drink it and I have no way of keeping it fresh for tomorrow. I don’t want to make that mistake again! Especially on the VV cruise as I’m getting 2 free bottles! One for referring and one for “A Splash of Romance” deal!

    I had a longer reply that got swallowed by a website error. Spending Curve cash is done by selecting it in the app as the funding card, and spending online/in person as normal. Charges will run down your Curve cash balance rather than incur an underlying funding card charge.

    I believe it has changed and selection isn’t possible. Certainly in-store transactions will be automatically taken from curve cash (no matter what funding option chosen) when the amount is fully covered by the balance of curve cash you have.

    Selection is certainly possible. Your second sentence describes the new default behaviour imposed by curve, but can be disabled in the settings when you switch your funding source to curve cash

    The imposition by curve was somewhat annoying for me personally, as I didn’t know and had selected my USD card in curve to spend $5 in the Truss era. Curve cashed out my curve cash (which is in GBP) at the exchange rate of $1.05.
