make sure both curves are in edit point mode or control verttex mode... then use the "v"-button for vertex/point snapping.

I dunno if you can do this after the curves are already made. I use to snap to curve "c"-button" when inserting the last point of the last curve. This way you can pull the last point to whereever on the other curve ya want...

Maybe somebody else have the answer..

Snap to curve is done a little differently than snap to point or snap to grid.

With the vertex or object selected, Hold C, and MIDDLE mouse click and drag ON the curve.
