    Credit cards with transaction notification? 27th Jul 17 at 7:38 PM
    I've just changed my current account to Starling and I now get a push notification for any money going into or out of the account.

    This seems a very good idea for spotting fraud and I was wondering if there are any credit cards out there that do the same? It would also save me from having to read my statement if I can watch the transactions as they go!

    Amex app on Android app now offers per-transaction notifications. I only saw the update last night, so while I have enabled I have not been able to test just yet.

    Update: Just paid for something on the web on my laptop - instant alert to my phone. Nice!

    I've turned this on on my Android but don't find the notifications very reliable. Sometimes they come through instantly but others never come at all.

    get a curve card, link the credit card, get curve points at certain retailers, withdraw cash on the credit card and it'll show up as a standard purchases on the credit card, and you get instant notifications of payments made
