I linked my Curve card to my Tesco Pay + account last Thursday. Eight (!) days later and the charge is still there on my Curve card and charged to my underlying card. When will this finally drop off and the underlying card refunded? If this was an ordinary credit/debit card the charge would have stayed pending until it dropped off.
I cannot see how Curve card makes it easier to keep track of your spending, what with verification transactions charged to underlying cards and waiting absolutely ages for said charges to drop and be refunded, petrol pre-auths hanging around for ages as actual charges and some with failed transactions on their cards still making it through as a charge to the underlying card.
Very difficult to manage and know what you have spent, what you haven’t spent and what should be refunded to underlying card at any one time.
End of rant. Back to my original question: When will the verification charge drop off of curve and then how much longer after that will I have to keep an eye on my underlying card statement to see a refund?
