You’re right @guernsey, I’d held the card for so long that i likely only broke even on the fee and points. But it was useful when I was doing some parallel banking in my USD-paid days.

As for earning on USD spend, this is why my legacy MBNA Horizon card will never be cancelled – 0.5% rebate on an exchange fee-free card is an ongoing benefit, although I’ve never looked into the underlying exchange rates.

Thanks for the feedback @Lux – the MBNA certainly sounds like a keeper!
