You can spend your Curve Cash points straight away at any physical or online shop, exactly as you would with any other card in your Curve Wallet.
Depending on your bank, you can even top up your supported prepaid cards or pay off your credit card statements using your Curve Cash balance. The only difference is ATM transactions, as you won’t be able to make withdrawals.
To use your Curve Cash, select your Curve Cash card as your active payment method before you make your purchase. Make sure that you have enough points to cover your entire purchase, otherwise, it will be declined.
Keep in mind that your Curve Cash has so much more to it than just being your way to earn cashback. Your Curve Cash card also holds Curve Cash points earned through signup bonus, Rewards, your cashback program, Curve Send and receiving refunds. With Curve Cash Auto-Use turned on, you would spend your Curve Cash points balance accumulated from all those features before reaching out to other payment cards added to your Curve Wallet.
What is the Curve Cash Auto-Use feature?
Curve Cash Auto-Use allows you to use your Curve Cash balance without even thinking about it! With the feature turned on, you automatically pay using Curve Cash, without having to manually select Curve Cash in your Wallet.
Remember, payments can’t be split between Curve Cash and another funding card, so your Curve Cash balance needs to cover the total price of the purchase. Oh, and the purchase needs to be for more than 10p!
And if you don’t have Curve Cash? The purchase will be made using the payment card selected in your Curve Wallet! Easy, right?
How do I turn Auto-Use off?
Simply open your Curve Cash card’s details and toggle the option’s button off. As this is an opt-in feature, you won’t have to use it if you don’t want to.
Can I earn cashback while paying with Curve Cash?
According to our Curve Cash program, you won’t receive any cashback on purchases paid for using your Curve Cash balance.
Can I use GBiT on a transaction made with this feature?
No – if you’ve paid for your purchase with Curve Cash, then the current restrictions with Curve Cash will still apply, and you won’t be able to move the transaction to another payment card.

Can I withdraw money from the ATM with this feature on?
Sorry, but our Curve Cash program rules state that your points can’t be used to withdraw cash from an ATM. The cash you withdraw will always come from your underlying payment card’s bank account.
