Living or Working Overseas Series: Part 1 – You Can Still Get Lots of Cards!

Disclosure: Emily & I get a commission for links on the blog. You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do.  

This series of posts is written by the Wandering US Expat, who’s lived in Australia and Panama.  And applied for cards from there!

Don’t let living abroad stop you from getting miles and points bonuses from credit cards!

It’s no secret that US banks lead the world in promotional point bonuses for new customers.  They give away lots of points to get a new customer in the hopes that you’ll remain, and spend, with them for years.  Lots of non-US folks wish they could get access to the same deals!

But many US citizens and ex-permanent residents, known as expats, often wonder whether they can still get credit cards if they leave or have already left the US.  Perhaps they’ve relocated for a job or have gone for an extended trip abroad.  Some expats have left permanently to start a new life.

And if you already have the card, this benefit is ending after 2015.  So after you’ve completed your spending for 2015, you’ll get your final 7% dividend in early 2016.

But the Chase Sapphire Preferred is also improving 2 of its benefits.

2015 Will Be the Last Year You Can Cash in Your 7% Dividend on Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Earned With Your Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. And New Cardholders Won’t Get This Benefit.

Hi,
I got the Chase British Airways Visa card a few years ago to get the 100,000 British Airways Avios points.  I also got another card for my wife, as an authorized user.

Can she apply for her own Chase British Airways Visa and earn her own British Airways Avios points bonus?  Do we have to cancel the card under her name that’s listed on my account?  Are there restrictions on this?
