Where, I saw it nowhere…
"How many months of Metal or new Curve Black do I get?
All Beta testers from starting the Curve Amex Closed Beta Programme to the third wave, will be given 6 months of the new Curve Black or 4 Months of Metal."
“Beta Testers will be able try to the new Curve Black for 6 months for free or 4 months of Metal.”
Nowhere does it state we must pay for month 1 to get the next 6 monthes free. I wouldn’t have bothered otherwise as my Curve Amex usage is not that high, I spend mainly on my Amex directly whenever possible!
