Earlier today, Curve tweeted that they will be bringing back Amex functionality next week:


Initially, the option to add American Express cards to your Curve account will only be open to selected Beta testers, but we expect the general roll out to follow soon.

How do I become a beta tester?

You can’t – but, check your messages!

Curve say,

“we have selected a sample from our customer base and sent invitations to apply. If you did not receive an invitation, you will be able to add Amex when we open our Beta programme to everyone”.

Are there any fees?

Curve are still keeping pretty close lipped on the precise details at the moment, but as you can see, all should become clear next week:

Stay tuned for Diego’s  blog post next week for more details”.

If you have any questions you want Diego to cover in his blog, let Curve know on Twitter using the hashtag .

Free £5 for signing up to Curve

    No invite for me, but the wife got one. Needed to enter first 6 digits of the Amex cards you hold (up to 3) to check they are compatible, so clearly not going to be all Amex cards. Then says they will select customers at random to join the closed beta, which will involve a different app. You will have to top up a virtual wallet, so looks like a bit different to just adding a visa or mastercard.

    Been reading on various blogs about the return of Amex to Curve recently. My gut feelings on this are that if they roll out to everyone the amount will be capped every month.

    I was invited too.
    I believe that beta testing with Amex wallet top up will be only for beta mode, once it launches for everyone I expect to use it as any other Visa, MasterCard.
    As Curve has started with upgrades old beta business prepaid cards to personal / business debit cards where the fees for transactions are capped I am persuade only Amex co-branded credit cards – British Airways, Nectar, Starwood, Costco and Lloyds will be compatible.
    And forget about any manufactured spending techniques. Since September Curve has introduced unique Merchant Category Code for transaction processing and your card issuer exactly knows what was your Curve spend porpoise.
    So I expect all futured Curve ATM withdrawals connected to Amex will be charged with additional cash advance 3% fee.
