Save Money Overseas

Did you know that many credit cards charge 3% for foreign transactions?

We just discovered that our beloved mileage card does just that, which will not do when we're abroad.

If we need to pay by credit card to see this in Sri Lanka, we won't be paying an extra 3%!

Thank gawd for the internet.  In seconds with a quick Google search I found lists of credit cards that have no foreign transaction fees, including one that gives you mileage and waives the yearly card fee the first year.

Viola!  We now have a card devoted to purchases in other countries.
