U.S. Credit Card Use when Living Overseas

U.S. Credit Card Use when Living Overseas

  1. Anonymous

    I live and work in Dubai. While most of the best cards have no foreign transaction fees, is there a downside to using a US issued credit card (such as Chase Sapphire) considering exchange rates?

  2. Anonymous

    Not really, the improved rewards schemes on the U.S. credit cards generally offset the exchange rates.

    There were a few tests recently that showed Mastercards as having slightly better exchange rates than Visa. It might not matter for a few purchases but might be something to consider if you are going to be using the card year round.
