I like my Amazon Visa cuz they don't charge you a on top of the standard exchange rate. Most cards I've seen charge 2.5% extra when you pay in a foreign currency so it helps when I need to use a foreign card in Korea, or when travelling. You get 20$ back on every 2000$ you spend so it's not great, but at least it's just 20$ off your bill rather than 20$ off your next Amazon purchase.

Oh, that's rad. My Canadian credit card is garbage - no benefits, nothing.

Lol damn that blows o.o I didn't know you could get cards without rewards anymore XD

I have a PC Mastercard that's garbage to me here because you have to spend points in store, and same with my walmart card. I have some points kickin around on my PC card so I connected it to my mum's point account and she got me a bunch of cough syrup that she brought when she visited but I prefer not paying extra on the exchange rate :P

Same here. Number of points depends on the type of purchase so you can get more than $20 back on $2000.

Had a Hyundai, Samsung, and Lotte card.

Overall, Hyundai was the best, but Samsung and Lotte also had its nice own perks (e.g., for Samsung, get Everland discount; could use at Costco, etc.)

Credit cards in Korea are so worth it if you go out to eat; get massive discounts at pizza chains, for instance.

And, yes, Canadian credit cards are garbage in comparison.
