I heard from multiple clients that Discover and Amex are not accepted at most vendors they visited in Europe; thus, I’m looking for probably VISA or MC.Again, I think the Discover card doesn't charge fees. Call them up. You do have other non-business cards, but they have annual fees. Be aware that if you apply for too many cards, your credit score will drop immediately, and you will start getting declined for every card because the bots will see you as being a risk that's desperate for cash. Also don't mention you make more than 100k, or they might not auto-approve you, and will ask you to provide documentation.
If you don't get the Discover card go with the Citi Double Cash card. Gives 2 points for every dollar, so that would help with foreign transaction fees. Citi has a $200 bonus right now. That should help offset any fees.
Discover does not have foreign transaction fees, so you won't pay a foreign transaction fee when you use your Discover card internationally. See terms.www.discover.com
I occasionally use my Amex on terminals that say "NO AMEX." I pay through Samsung Wallet. I don't think they can block anyone without blocking every fee processor. I had the Chase Sapphire Preferred, and downgraded to the non-annual fee one because of COVID. You can try that, and get the bonus. Apply soon, because Chase might be drastically changing their CC system.I heard from multiple clients that Discover and Amex are not accepted at most vendors they visited in Europe; thus, I’m looking for probably VISA or MC.
Appreciate the additional info!
That's very possible. Never been rejected with Amex while checking out at a few places. Don't really use Amex for physical stores, so guess that's why I haven't gotten rejected yet. It's extremely stupid to not accept Amex since their is cards that fuck you way worse with 5x points rotating cards, and Amex is the third least used fee processor. Most of my Amex cards only get 1 point, or 1.5 for general stuff. I can see restaurants not wanting them, but even than you have Visa, and Mastercards that also give you sweet restaurant cash back/points. You also have the no limit Citi Double, and Paypal Cashback that give you 2x on all purchases.I dunno...maybe there are some places where they just ask not to take amex to save a few cents but their processor actually allows it...
But I've had many scenarios where I scan my Amex and the transaction fails. Costco's an obvious one with their current visa-exclusive relationship, but there are some local businesses around here where the machine rejects amex (or rejects me trying to pay with Amex via Apple Pay/Google Pay on my phone).
If you set up as "no Amex" with your merchant account, your POS units shouldn't be able to run them.
That you, Allen Iverson?That’s my bad. I haven’t been to a strip club since before the pandemic
