Unbonused foreign-transaction spend

Unbonused foreign-transaction spend

  1. Anonymous

    Hey Lucky,

    I see alot of blog articles from you and your peers on the “best card to use” for hotels, flights, groceries, etc.

    One analysis I’ve never seen: which card should we all be using for unbonused spend [I]while abroad[/I]?

    The obvious domestic answers and new usual suspects (Amex Blue Bus Plus, Citi Double Cash, Chase Freedom Unl) all, notably, incur hefty foreign transaction fees.

    Are we resigned to earning 1x on a transferable program?

    [*]Capital One Venture or Spark Miles
    [*]Virgin Atlantic World Elite Mastercard®

    [*]Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Visa® credit card or Bank of America® Travel Rewards Visa® credit card
    All effectively earn 1.5x airline miles on unbonused spend, with no forex fees.
