    Curve Card: Spending Curve Reward Points? 9th Oct 19 at 9:47 PM
    I've got 20 Curve reward points (which I understand is equivalent to 20p) but I don't understand how I spend them. I know I just select the Curve points as the funding source in the App, but do I then need to make a transaction for 20p or less?

    I used mine to make a payment towards my credit card bill.

    Cheers both.

    Edit: The snag being none of my credit cards will accept a payment of 20p, nor will my NS&I Direct Saver.

    Go to a supermarket (e.g. Sainsbury's) and ask to make a partial payment.

    When I had small amounts in my Curve Cash/Reward wallet I paid 9p onto my water account online.

    You could do that, or Council Tax, Electricity etc?

    It should be possible to load your Amazon balance with a small amount. Thats how I used about 1.66 worth of Curve points myself. Not sure if theres a limit on how low you can go.

    Santander credit card has a minimum debit card payment of 5, which applies even if the card balance is less than a fiver (I know this from previous experience trying to pay off a small balance by debit card.)
