Curve Releasing All-in-One Credit Card
Curve is the newest company to offer an all-in-one credit card that can store all of a consumer’s credit and debit cards. What makes it different from other all-in-one cards on the market is that it uses chip-and-pin, magnetic strip and contactless technology.
Curve users have access to foreign currency rates using MasterCard’s wholesale rate plus 1%, according to Neowin. There are also no transaction fees.
Even though Curve is a MasterCard, users will still be able to use their cards from other issuers. Consumers will also still receive any rewards and points their credit cards normally offer.
To start using Curve, customers open the app on their device, order a card, select a security pin and then begin adding debit and credit cards to the account. There is no limit on the number of cards that can be added.
When the card is received, users sync their card to the app using the last four digits of the Curve card.
Curve is currently offered in the U.K., and a limited trial is being held in the United States. The card can be ordered from the website or app, and costs $50.
Currently, Curve is only available on iOS devices. The company said that the card will be available on Android devices this summer.
