More and more free travel credit cards – including Crypto Currencies (no FIAT)
The funny point this time – where nobody can travel like in the past – I am getting more and more free travel credit cards with included benefits. Even free Entrances for Airport lounges – this is really silly this time. Particularly the Crypto start up’s companies open more and more opportunities and certainly the CRYPTOS themselves.
Here my personal favorites:
1. Curve – Apple pay achievable
This red metal card is very special and brillant. No more plastic – just metal. The big advantage is all in one. Curve connects all my existing credit cards and I can choose via smart phone which already existing card I want to use. Plus many features for detail lovers – like free cash at the ATM and still points (amazon, Lufthansa … ) just to get cash without fees plus with points !! Wow. No fees in foreign currencies at all. The activities on your local Curve connected credit cards are marked as “CRV*REWE Ober-Olm London“ plus cash back in your Curve App. Cash back for Aldi, Lidl, Rewe and Co. via London. Getting money for shopping, points for ATM using … I think this is really funny.
The following cards are mostly connected via Curve – I am using these cards mostly via Curve.
2. Lufthansa credit card Business – Curve and Apple pay achievable
The Lufthansa credit card is the best choice for travelers and my backbone card. I hope the crisis won’t destroy this DKB product.
3. Amazon standard credit card – Curve and no Apple pay
This card is great to get 2x benefits for amazon shopping. I am getting 1% cash back via Curve plus 0,5 % amazon card points for each activity. So I am getting all amazon products/offers 1,5 % cheaper, when I use Curve in my amazon account – amazon credit card chosen in the Curve App.
4. Sparda Bank Hessen Platium Card – Curve and no Apple pay
The local bank Sparda Hessen offers since many years one of the best travel cards. It’s included a concierge service and many useful insurances. The credit card insurances are not connected with the payment – so real travel insurances and it is allowed to combine with Lufthansa credit card insurances (substitute). So I can save a lot of money for separate travel insurances.
5. Wirex Card – no Curve connection and no Apple pay
Wirex is a start up from London and I could use a GBP, US$ and € Visa cards. I personally have the € and US$ Wirex Visa Cards. They call GBP, US$ and € “FIAT currencies“ – because I have changed my “FIAT money” in Crypto Currencies. Change it back in € and US$ when I need to pay. Cash back in Bitcoins for each activity.
6. Coinbase Visa card – no Curve connection and no Apple pay
The Coinbase Visa card is a real Crypto credit card. I can pay with the well known Cryptos like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litcoin and co. No „FIAT Currency“ anymore. Who is saying Crypto is not real – I suggest the Coinbase Visa Card.
7. TransferWise – Curve and Apple pay achievable
The TransferWise App is great for fast SEPA bank wire transfers (real time), but the fees are too high for me. Great App and Credit card – but too expensive for me. Nice to have – no more.
8. n26 – Curve and Apple pay achievable
n26 is just a modern bank and I don’t get the real reason why I should switch completely to them. I am waiting for new useful features.
9. boon planet / Wirecard – Curve and Apple pay achievable
Same with boon planet – I am waiting for much more new features as a Wirecard company
One of my favorite Crypto platform – spread out there new metal credit cards. Still waiting to get the fancy metal card.
