If you had £1,000 to spend on your dream trip, where would you go?

We’ve partnered with Curve to give away £1,000 to one lucky TPG U.K. reader to spend anywhere, anytime. To enter you simply have to sign up to the Curve App via this link before 22 November 2021 and then make your first transaction.

The winner will have 100,000 Curve Cash Points deposited directly into their Curve account after the competition period ends on 22 November, which then can be used as £1,000 to pay for your next holiday.

But that’s not all: Curve is also giving every new user 1% cash back across every single one of their purchases for an entire month when you sign up via this link.

If you don’t know, we love Curve as it allows you to earn the rewards your credit card would provide without the issues of acceptance and foreign exchange fees. You can even earn points on cash withdrawals, even in foreign currencies. If you’re heading across to Europe for half-term or a cheeky weekend away now that travel has well and truly returned, use your Curve card without the worry and cost of foreign exchange fees.

With Amazon recently announcing they will no longer accept payments by Visa credit cards from 19 January 2022 its a great time to apply for a Curve card as you can use Curve (a Mastercard) for your online Amazon purchases while linking any Visa credit card you like.

This means, for example, if you connect your Virgin Atlantic Reward+ credit card to Curve you can earn 1.5 Virgin Points for every £1 equivalent spent anywhere in the world, in any currency, without paying any foreign exchange fees as long as you use Curve to pay. You will also earn 1% cash back on every purchase for the first 30 days, and for each friend you refer to Curve, you will earn an additional 30 days of 1% cashback.

If you were to use your Virgin credit card without Curve in a foreign currency you would be hit with a 2.99% FX fee for any purchases, so it’s a great idea to grab a Curve card for your next trip.

Curve cardholders can also select their favourite travel companies to earn up to 20% cashback with every time they use their Curve card, including favourites like Booking.com, Marriott, Uber and EasyJet.

This competition is open to new Curve users only and terms and conditions apply – these can be found at this entry link here.

Good luck!
