I've used Citibank and BPI. Mas mahal nga ang Citibank pero yea we're after the miles din. If you want lower rates use BPI talaga. The other day I got an email from Security Bank they don't have foreign exchange fees daw for their MasterCard credit cards. Any SB MC cardholders that can confirm? Thanks! :)

Citibank premiere miles and bdo platinum.  You get to use the airport lounge (free food and all), and the points are pretty good too.

BPI and BDO may travel insurance kasama if you book your tickets using any of those cards

I heard this too from my facebook friend.

BPI and HSBC gamit ko, BPI pinakamababang conversion rate.

https://www.securitybank.com/personal/credit-cards/faq/no-foreign-exchange-fees/

Ito yung link. Di ko pa natry hmn. Walang foreign exchange fee sa bank, meron pa kaya nung conversion fee ng Mastercard? Hindi malinaw sa link. Kasi di naman iisa lang component ng foreign transaction fees- usually bank+network yan. Sa BPI, for instance, 0.75% plus 1% ni MC or VIsa kaya 1.75% ang total. Naencourage tuloy ako gamitin pero mas gusto ko BPI dahil may Spend Anywhere promo.

I don't know if this applies pero online, mas mababa rates ng BPI Amore VISA vs. BPI Gold Mastercard. 'Pag bumibili ako sa shops na hindi dito sa Philippines. Hehe. So I always activate my Amore na lang instead of Gold 'pag aalis.

When i went to Macau and had to travel to HK by ferry the same day without any HKD or MOP in hand and ayaw ko talaga magpa change sa airport coz I know mahal. I tried to use my M metrobank Mastercard CC to buy ferry tickets and it went thru,  i was really happy, easy pezzy and to think I am only supplementary card holder and we did not contact the bank before my trip.  So there nimax out ko yon while in HK :) automatically charged in peso and conversion was very minimal,  hindi ko na feel.
