Mine charges 2.5%. Most do.
I applied over the phone for my BMO US Dollar Mastercard.
Mine came in 1 1/2 weeks.
yup! you just wait for the bill to come in, go up to the teller and say 'pay this from my us acct please'. this is how i do it. it is just so much easier to pick up some us cash every pay and put it into my acct. then i do not have to come up with large amounts for trips. getting airmiles on the card is another bonus. its win, win. your going to be amazed how easy and convienent it is.Question for the BMO person, or anyone else that might know the answer. I have a BMO US bank acct....if I get this card & use it on my trip, can I pay the card with my US acct? I'd rather convert my money as the $ is good & not chance the rate for when the bill comes in.
I've been looking for an option for a while now. Most places won't cash traveller's cheques anymore, and we try to do our trip all cash. This would be the best, because we'd just put the card away with unused passes & only take it out when we're going south.
Thanks for the info!!
ata girl, make us proud!Well, I went in to BMO and applied for one today. The teller gave me a bonus of 50 Air Miles and said I should have it by December. I also didn't have much to fill out - she said it was because I already had the regular A/M MasterCard. Thinking a little more about it now, perhaps it wasn't the best thing to do since I'll probably just go shopping a lot more.
That's a question that your bank should answer. The exchange rate changes daily, and as far as fees go, they difer from bank to bank. Just call and ask.Thanks for the response-
K- I am wondering- If we are talking about $5000 does anyone know how the figures would go- having the money on a Canadian Credit Card and paying exhange on card or having US Card and paying just to exchange money then pay bill
Also- I have the BMO US Card- there is no BMO close to me. Can I pay on the BMO card at CIBC where I do my banking? I am trying to simplify - It might just be easier to get a CIBC US Card and pay the annual fee- I dunno
Still a tad confused- thanks, Jen
