On the 7th of July, I booked four flights using my Curve card. They were booked via Expedia, for British Airways, and the total cost was £1640.20.
I’ll be honest, I can’t remember if I looked that closely at the Curve notification that popped up on my phone, but generally I do. I don’t remember this specific one, though.
Anyway, I was looking at my underlying bank account today, and it’s all a bit weird. Four transactions show on the account:
7th July - Expedia - £10.00
8th July - British Airways - £415.80
8th July - British A Australa - £1214.40
8th July - British Airways - £1247.40
Adding the first three together gives me the £1640.20 that I was expecting. I have no idea what the fourth transaction is, though. Interestingly (maybe) £1247.40 is 3x£415.80, the first BA transaction on the list.
In the Curve app, the total currently shows as a single transaction for £2877.60. It has been 10 working days since the charge was taken from the account.
I’ve checked with Expedia, and they say they can only see a charge of £1640.20. I emailed Curve earlier today, but so far no response.
To confuse matters, I tried booking the flights the same day with another provider, but the transaction was declined. I don’t think it was for £1247.40, though, and would have been closer to the £1600-ish mark.
Anyone have any insight they can offer?! Thanks!
