Living or Working Overseas: Part 7 – Dual Citizens/Residents – Get Extra Points!

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.

How to Start Applying for Miles & Points Credit Cards

Million Mile Secrets reader Michael emails:

I have a friend I’m trying to bring into the miles game.  He has good credit (740), but only has … wait for it …. just ONE credit card, which he’s had for years.  Only a $2,500 limit.  100% pay on time.

Is he ready to apply for the big bonuses?  Or should he get a few more cards and a little more cumulative credit limit by starting with cards like the Chase Freedom, and other beginner cards?

Basically, is a 700+ score and only a single card enough to swing for the fences and apply for 4 or 5 cards with 50,000+ bonuses right out of the gate?

This is a great question!   What should you do if you want to start applying for miles and points cards, but only have ONE long-established credit card currently (with a good credit score)?
