No, nothing on curve at all didn’t give any indication that a transaction was even attempted. Was definitely on the correct card also as I double checked before hand.

Anyone thinking of investing in curve?

The investor cards look pretty cool, the metal in particular!

Edit: Also another failed transaction today for a few hundred I again wanted to do a switcharoo to my credit card in a few days. card got a normal “declined” this time twice both with chip and pin and they also tried to enter the card number to try that way as the person working there was interested in the card. Getting annoying at this stage.

I’ve successfully used it in aldi and dunnes as well as amazon using either N26 or Revolut as the underlying card. It’s failed with ebs as my boi card now. Not sure if this is coincidence or if the Irish cards aren’t playing ball.

Edit2: just tapped the card for a few euro three with boi as the chosen card so not an issue on a small transaction. Are there transaction limits, I was only spending 700 euro earlier wouldn’t have thought that exceeded any limit.

me too for £1000. Hope it doesn't affect my grandfathered black legacy, as I have free membership on that

I'm curious about this overfunding business - will we all get squeezed immediately for them to stick to their 2% equity target (that was allowed for £1m)?

I went in for a smaller investment, was debating the 1k but the only money I have quick access to is making nice interest in nexo so I didn’t bother touching it.

They raised 1m in 4 minutes.

Put in for £100 myself. Am a big fan of the product so it's nice to have some skin in the game, no matter how microscopic!

I completely forgot about it. Had a small bit I could have taken a punt with. Oversubscribed now.

The lack of detail regarding the equity split for crowdfunding in what passed for a prospectus put me off TBH.

I also have concerns regarding how they present their figures.
For example presenting their growth rate at 307% year on year and strongly implying it's a sustainable rate.
The math behind how they will actually make money, where is it?
I like their service, particularly because it's free.
If it becomes a pay service, I'll ditch it and use something else.

I’ve found Curve’s rates to be a tiny bit better.

Using Curve with Revolut

I have been using Revolut for a while now and find it excellent.

I have just got a replacement Revolut card as my old one expired and the new card is a VISA whereas my old one was a MasterCard
From what I understand the Curve card is a Mastercard so if I signed up and added my Revolut (now VISA) then if I used my Curve for a transaction then it would be regarded as a MasterCard transaction? Am I right in this?

Also I wanted to double up on the fe free ATM withdrawal allowances by using the €200 limit on Revolut plus the €200 on Curve giving an effective €400 per month fee free ATM cash withdrawals

Has anyone used the Go Back in Time Feature? I made a purchase using my curve card (linked to my current account) on Tuesday night. I realised after I got the notification that I used the wrong card and used the Go Back in Time Feature to change the card to my credit card. The money is gone from my current account and the transaction is showing up in my credit card as well. Will Curve just refund the money back into my current account now?
