ABOC Platinum Rewards Card Now Has No Foreign Transaction Fees

ABOC Platinum Rewards Credit Card issued by Amalgamated Bank of Chicago is a card similar to Discover it and Chase Freedom. It offers the option to earn 5% on rotating quarterly categories (up to $1,500 spend per quarter) with no annual fee. It also comes with a $150 signup bonus (when you make purchases totaling $1,200 within the first 90 days from account opening).

Now the card is getting a small upgrade. Beginning July 1, 2019, ABOC is removing the Foreign Transaction fee, which previously was 3%. You can check out more details and sign up for the card here.
