Credit and debit cards are frequently being monitored by security departments for suspicious activity. If you’re from the U.S. and you make an ATM withdrawal in Thailand when they don’t know you’re overseas, this could appear suspicious to your bank, and your card might be locked the next time you withdraw. Give your bank or credit card provider a call and let them know when and where you’ll be travelling. Take it from us – you do not want to be stuck without cash and a useless card!

10. US Bank: With no foreign partners or international ATM locations, US Bank also adds fees to all debit card transactions abroad including a flat fee and a 2% withdrawal charge for those made in US dollars and 3% in foreign currency.  However, the $2.50 fee is waived for Platinum and Premium Checking customers, while Gold Checking customers can get two fee waivers every statement period.

I signed up for a Charles Schwab debit card to use during my travels abroad in Europe this summer and am so glad I did. Because so many countries use more cash than cards and I didn’t want to carry around loads of cash. I found myself taking out cash nearly every other day. The Schwab debit card saved me so much money: I never used a currency exchange kiosk and got the best exchange rate possible by taking cash out of ATMs and getting reimbursed for all withdrawal fees.

Be very careful signing up if you are American but traveling while you register. I only spend about a week a year in the states, they Charles Schwab let me register and add $1000 USD to the account. They sent me a card and everything but when I went to make a withdraw(friend visiting brought the debit card) they wouldn’t allow it, I called the bank and they said the account was locked because I registered from a foreign IP. They would not allow me to send any info to get it unlocked and said I could only do so in a person at a local branch with 2 forms of ID and that they would keep my money until then. There was no way around it and if they were going to lock the account they should of done it before they let me make a deposit. Six months later I was finally able to get the funds back.


It’s fairly easy to build your own website if you take advantage of the many free learning opportunities online. However, much of the population isn’t equipped to build their own site, or doesn’t have the time, which is why so many people make a living building websites and blogs for others. According to the BLS, around 16% of web developers were self-employed in 2016, with the vast majority able to work at home, or anywhere with a laptop and speedy Internet connection.

Fay — I have a few posts up that list ways to get fast cash, but if you’re looking for bill money, those might not help much because the things I listed there are mostly good for gas money, pizza money, etc. Just a little extra. I know that with the phone positions there’s often a few weeks or more worth of wait time while you’re getting a background check done, training, and so forth. The sales positions (things like Helios, which has actually received negative feedback lately from some of my readers) could probably have you up and working and making money quickly. I do have a post on this blog covering Helios. But not everyone likes sales, so that may not be the route you’d want to take.

With so many businesses operating mostly, or even completely, online, it’s no wonder that many hire virtual assistants to help keep them organized and complete administrative tasks. According to the International Virtual Assistants Association, these workers are “independent contractors who (from a remote location, usually their home or office) support multiple clients in a variety of industries by providing administrative, creative, and technical services.”
On their own websites, bloggers make money by selling their own products or advertising others. Advertising revenue is generated through advertisements, sponsorships, or affiliate marketing. In addition to their own blogs, many bloggers look for online writing jobs. Freelance writing provides a steadier stream of income than blogging, and it is easier to start making money quickly – making it a great way to supplement your income as you grow your own blog.
When you process an international ATM transaction and the fee is presented separately (clearly showing how much we need to rebate), we will refund ATM usage fees assessed within three business days. However, it is not always clear during an international ATM transaction that a fee has been charged. In these cases where a separate ATM usage fee is not presented, we will automatically rebate $3.00 USD for each international ATM transaction. If the ATM usage fee you pay is more than $3.00 USD, please visit a branch or contact Bangor Support at 1.877.Bangor1 (1.877.226.4671).
