This is a welcome addition to the Curve premium tiers, and I’m sure to some people this will be valuable. Glad to see it finally launch.
I’m unlikely to use it much personally, as all the retailers on the list that I use regularly accept Amex, and I can get more value from the points. For those without an Amex card, though, I guess this program is a nice addition.
However, this really doesn’t go close to making the current subscription prices worthwhile. If metal was £5/month instead of £15, I’d certainly consider sticking with it. But at the current pricing, I’ll definitely be cancelling my metal subscription when my year is up.
