I've bumped up a number of the most recent threads about US Credit Cards, Canadian Debit cards and so forth..

You'll see them here in the Canadian Forum on the first screen.. near the top!

For a minute there, I thought that I'd stepped into some strange Twilight Zone where all the threads are eerily similar (and all about the US dollar at that!). Thanks for clarifying Knox!

Well, I finally got my BMO MasterCard on Friday. I was a little (a lot) disappointed in the credit limit - $1K. Don't they know how much I like to spend when I'm at Disney Reminds me of when I got my very first credit card. Too bad I can't transfer some of my credit from my Canadian A/M card onto this one ... oh well.

theres an 800 number on the back of the card. give them a call and they can raise your limit right over the phone.
on the other extreme, when i received mine they had given me a $12,000 limit. i mean really. i like to spend but come on!

Alternatively, let's say you wanted to spend $2,500. You could pay $1,500 on the card before you go & then that gives you the ability to charge up to $2,500.

At least, I'm assuming it will work the same as the Cdn one. When I got my BMO Cdn Mosaik MC (about 8 years ago) the limit was only $500! I just prepaid on it, and was able to pay for something that was over $500 with no problem at all.

Thanks for the replies tinkone and CindyCan! I'll give them a call tomorrow and see what happens. Is it going to be bad for my credit limit to ask for a credit increase? I've never really asked for one before - with my Canadian MC, it's always been automatically raised every so often.

there should be not problems and it will not be bad for your credit in anyway. they will look at it while you are on the phone and since they have already done the credit check when they got the original ap they will be able to yeh or neh it right away. sometimes they do not know people need it for travel. we have had a large infux of apps because people want to do things over the internet and only want a small limit to minimize an internet fraud.
you'll be ok but let me know how you make out.

We've merged these threads into one and 'stuck' it at the top of the forum since this comes up a LOT.. (along with the cell phone and flying out of Buffalo/Detroit stuff..)

LOL ~ I only wanted $500 to pay for my shore excursions and stuff and when I look at my paperwork they gave me $7500!!!! That is a little scary ~ I'm a single mom and could see me getting carried away at the World of Disney Store!

Got to watch about paying large amounts on to a credit card when you don't have a balance like it. I was going to do this, but banks look at this as money laundering. Wouldn't try it.

As for using ATM, transaction fees apply like $2.50 per when you are in US.

I have a BMO MC with $10 000, so it depends on your credit history, and they aren't likely to increase it as soon as you get the card. If you mainitain good history from the time you get it, perhaps six months down the line can you ask for an increase.

US credit card

O.K. this might be a silly question but if you have a US card, how do you pay it in US funds. Do I need a US bank account??
