Virgin Cash Advance fees about to be applied?

    Interesting that there are no fees with £200/month Curve ATM withdrawals. Surely they have some internal way to avoid this gets passed through to the underlying card as the cash transaction.

    Sshhhh! Please….. Comments like yours don’t help in keeping opportunities open.

    I admit having tried everything I could I think of I’ve lost all opportunities so paid Curve cancelled. Happy to hear you still have them if you do!

    Received the exact same email from Virgin CC again on 15 Oct 22 (the last one was on 13 Jun 22). Did anyone else get it as well?

    “The changes we were making to Cash Advance fees didn’t happen at that time [5 Aug 2021], and they will now be live from this month……”

    To summarise as of Oct 17 2022

    Virgin will charge for

    1. Paying off other CC’s using Curve
    2. Paying NS&I using Curve
    3. ATM withdraws over £200 using Curve
    4. Using GBIT for no1+2 above, with Curve

    Normal Virgin CC with Curve are ok and wont be charged.

    Anyone know if Virgin will charge for overseas FX ATM withdraws using Curve?

    Correct? Have I missed anything?

    Anyone able to summarise Revolut/Virgin?

    Revolut banned credit card top-ups in July. You can still use debit cards though.

    So you can still withdraw £200 monthly from a cashpoint using Curve with Virgin’s blessing?

    Forgot-

    5. Virgin/curve with HMRC still ok? Just the usual 0.1% fee

    Virgin, when using Curve now also charge a 5% fee for paying Pensions with Nest too.
