I was wondering if these cards, in addition to not having foreign currency transaction fees, also guarantee the “real” exchange rate when you make a purchase (that is, the exchange rate you would see if you looked at google in the same instance you make the purchase). If not, then just “not having fees” might not be enough if they have a very bad (for us, good for them) exchange rate.
Before you leave home with just your ATM card, however, make sure that the Cirrus, Maestro or PLUS networks are readily available where you’re going. While these networks are increasingly common overseas, they are still only available at a limited number of banks in some countries. Each network has an online locator to help you find international ATMs:
The Bank of America® Travel Rewards credit card is a good option for any traveller, but it’s especially rewarding if you use other Bank of America® products.

Just one piece of partial contention about your Sapphire post. While you are correct that the sign up bonus would get you $500 in travel…there is a much more lucrative aspect to that sign-up bonus. The beauty of the Ultimate Rewards program is in the ability to transfer points 1:1 to frequent flyer/hotel programs for an extremely higher $ value. For example. 100,000 UR points would get you $1000 in travel using the Chase travel portal…OR…you could transfer those 100,000 points to 100,000 United Miles and book a round-trip business class ticket to Europe…this ticket would be valued at between $5,000 and $10,000…a much higher payout!
This debit card is a must-have if you need to travel abroad! Though the bank is not famous, its debit card is really fantastic. It is similar to the Charles Schwab Debit Card, you can compare these two and choose one of them. The main difference is: Fidelity Check Card has a 1% Foreign Transaction Fee (FTF) when you purchase stuff, while Charles Schwab Debit Card doesn’t; You can apply for the Fidelity Check Card without a Hard Pull, while you will get one applying for Charles Schwab Debit Card; Fidelity daily ATM withdrawal limit is $500, while Charles Schwab limit is $1000.
Almost every big business has gotten on the social media bandwagon as a means to reach their customers directly, and without paying heavily for television, print, or radio ads. But not every big business has someone to manage their social media accounts, which is why more individuals have begun marketing themselves as social media managers and helping businesses grow their online following and expand their reach.
If you have excellent credit, the Chase Sapphire Preferred® card is the must-have card for any serious traveler and also an excellent choice for anyone heading abroad. It has an introductory annual fee of $0 the first year, then $95—still well worth it if you’ll do a bit of spending on the card. It has no foreign transaction fees, plus chip-enabled for enhanced security and wider acceptance when used at a chip card reader.

I just wanted to let you know that I have been hired by Maritz (Thank you Annie) and working with them for almost 30 days now (perfect attendance gets you a $.25 raise after 30 days too). The company has us calling customers from different businesses (banks, insurance co. etc..) and asking them to please complete a survey of how their customer service experience was between 1 (poor) and 10 (excellent). They pay you the minimum wage of your state weekly by direct deposit and pay on time. The staff is great and helpful and they make the job easy and enjoyable. Thanks again Annie and bless you for all your great and helpful information that you share with us.
But what if I told you that there are banks out there that charge no monthly fees, 0% foreign transaction fees, 0% currency exchange markup, 0% ATM withdrawal fees and even refund fees imposed by ATM owners worldwide? Sounds like some sort of black magic right? Well, it’s not. I spent countless hours finding the best banks for nomads in North America, Europe, and Oceania, so you don’t have to. Read on to learn more about these incredible banks and how you can open an account with them today.
Phone Work – These are jobs that will require you to use the phone as part of your job. Some may require a landline and/or a good quality headset while others may not. The jobs include customer service positions where you handle inbound calls; others are sales jobs, escalation support, telephone researcher positions, mystery shopping, technical support, virtual assistant and telemarketing positions.
9. USAA: Strictly speaking, you do get charged a fee for withdrawing money from your USAA account, but I wanted to include it here because it is pretty low. According to USAA’s Secure Checking Accounts page, “USAA Bank refunds up to $15 in other banks’ ATM usage fees each month and does not charge a fee for the first 10 ATM withdrawals. Subsequent transactions will be charged $2.00 each. A 1% foreign transaction fee applies to withdrawals outside the United States.” So if you are just making a few withdrawals, you’ll just be paying that 1% charge.

Note:  Nearly all of these programs require an upfront investment for purchasing your initial inventory. They’re not our first choice when it comes to work from home jobs for this reason alone. We don’t like seeing users getting stuck with thousands of dollars in inventory only to realize they’re trying to offload their LuLaRoe into already saturated markets.


We’ll always post the current fees for sending money to friends and family on this page, and we will disclose the fees to you in advance each time you initiate a transaction to send money to a friend or family member. These fees may change from time to time, and most changes to these fees will be deemed effective at the time and date of posting. If these fees ever increase, we will provide you 30 days advance notice on our Policy Updates page. You must have or open a PayPal account to send or receive money.

Even though these online jobs are ideal for people with no prior experience. It is always great to have side earners for a little spare change. I highly recommend signing up for Slice the Pie where I earn around $200 – $300 per month writing short music reviews, rating fashions, testing cell phone apps, and more. You can also earn a little extra by scanning your grocery receipts with Ibotta. Last month I earned an $120 sent immediately via Paypal.

Holly fell into freelance writing on a whim. She submitted several pitches for guest posts and ended up landing a few clients. After roughly 6 months of freelancing on the side, she was making enough money to replace her income and work at home full-time. Now, she makes over $200,000 a year from writing alone. Not bad for a home-based business, eh?

Fidelity Investments offers a cash management account that it describes as a traditional checking account without the bank fees. There are no monthly fees or minimum balances. All ATM fees are automatically reimbursed nationwide with a 1% foreign transaction fee. Free bill pay, mobile check deposit and checks are included. Fidelity operates a limited branch network across the United States.
I just checked with fidelity. If you have an account with them and they give you a debit card that is attached to that account it is also free atms worldwide and they reimburse any fees the atm charges. I also asked about the foreign transaction fees and the debit card is visa and visa charges a 1% fee. That fee is way better than the 3% of other cards. That will be a big savings traveling over seas. I hope this helps someone.

1. Unlimited ATM fee rebates apply to cash withdrawals using your Visa debit card wherever it is accepted. ATM fee rebates do not apply to any fees other than those assessed for using an ATM to withdraw cash from your Schwab Bank account. Schwab Bank makes its best effort to identify those ATM fees eligible for rebate, based on information it receives from Visa and ATM operators. In the event that you have not received a rebate for a fee that you believe is eligible, please call a Schwab Bank Client Service Specialist for assistance at 888-403-9000. Schwab Bank reserves the right to modify or discontinue the ATM fee rebate at any time.

This has to be the most awesome list. Very informative and insightful. There is another that you didn’t mention on your list. It’s an Energy Conservation program that’s free to join. They pay you to reduce your energy cost and currently 20.00 per referral that signs up and connects their smart meter. I’ve already earned cash and cashed out after only a week.The only drawback is that it’s only good for the state’s of Texas and California.
