Lots of US credit cards charge up to 3% when you use them for transactions in a foreign country. But with the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you will NOT be charged foreign transaction fees when you’re abroad!
That’s great news, because if you spend a lot overseas, using a credit card without foreign transaction fees can mean substantial savings.
And with the Chase Sapphire Reserve, you’ll earn extra Chase Ultimate Rewards points in bonus categories too!

Million Mile Secrets reader Rather B tweeted:
What’s the best first no annual fee card for my military son? Bag fees aren’t an issue. But $3,000 minimum spending to get the sign-up bonus may be hard.
Thank you for the question, Rather B. And thanks to your son for his service!
American Express cards are a good pick if you are in a similar situation. That’s because American Express will waive credit card fees for members of the military, like late fees and over-limit fees!

I recently wrote about which card issuers give the best exchange rate for foreign transactions. And ran an experiment which showed MasterCard had the most favorable rates.
But that might not be the case in every situation. Deciding which credit card to use when traveling abroad can be tricky, because the major banks use a different conversion tool for rates.
The Mercez app can check which card gives you the best exchange rate from the local currency into US dollars when making your purchase.

I’ve been playing with the app and the concept is great, but it’s not perfect. Here’s my full review.
