You changed your status to normal from the busness and personal thefore introducing the 1.4% charge. The charge for your £19.99 spend at amazon was 28p as it clearly says. So what on earth are you banging on about? Basicslly you have no idea what you’re doing and its not a reason not to get this card. Absolute nonsense!

Hi I got a Account and used in amazon for £19.99 to purchased. I received £ 3.27 charge. What is the point ? they will charge and get money. This is look like cheat. Don't get this card.

By cutting and pasting the URL I got TCB cashback as well as the £35 - but only £9.97 not the advertised £21 for a £500 top-up.

Was the best way to withdraw without any charges through PayPal?

What countries?? You should be aware that in China, although you will see the Mastercard and Visa symbols everywhere, the vast majority only accept cards issued by a mainland Chinese bank; this also goes for the majority of the ATMs. The place I stay has a population of ~11 million, yet there are less than a dozen ATMs in the whole city (that I know of), that will take non Chinese bank cards.

FairFX pre paid card. Free £35 with no purchase necessary. Voucher is discounted of price straight away. If you have money then an extra tenner over the groupon deal! Must top up £500 then withdraw back out via cash machine! Fee 50p

Tried to use my card in Nerja Spain this week and failed in 4 atms (telebanco, euro net, cajamar, cajares). Finally worked in unimar. Stated consult card issuer which is the last thing you need on holiday! Halifax clarity worked in all of them. I wont be using them again as far too unreliable.

Received my card yesterday, went to the bank today and Barclays machine would not recognise it (not sure if this is my local bank or just a general problem with Barclays), went across the road to HSBC and withdrew the £500 without any issue :) Thank you OP. Just thought i'd post incase others tried to withdraw at Barclays and had the same issue :)

So I was right about charges then.

Just got my card and made a foreign purchase in USD. Got charged an authorisation commission of £1. What's the point? The whole reason I got this card was to avoid foreign transaction fees.

To be fair, taffyt did not mention cash withdrawls. And thanks to the original poster. I am applying for a new card as mine is up for renewal. Putting £50 quid on it I don't mind, but putting £150 on my old one to save the £6 fee is too much. Surely it would be better to just wave the £6 at the £50 mark. Never mind G

Think you & i got the fairfx card about the same time if memory serves me well. Personally prefer Wizzair now. After paying the yearly subscription fee of approx £26 i have recently booked return flights to Prague, Warsaw & Skopje all for under £25 return ( + £10 booking fee ).

Newbold

Very shortly, yes.

Slash

so does that mean fairfx prepaid mastercard will incur fees when booking with ryanair now?

Newbold

As always - sneaky Ryanair. Not to be trusted and best avoided unless you absolutely have to fly with them.

darren9030

That's exactly what i was about to say after finding this thread in my saved list. Damn rogues :(

I didn't change accounts - I just have Nationwide as a second account for holidays and transfer money in when I need it. If I'd wanted to gamble with currency rates I probably would have been buying dollars over several months, but I probably wouldn't have done it with a Fairfx card - I would just have looked round for the best exchange rate. Yes, some years you would gain by buying early and other years would lose out. In the long run you will most likely win with the Nationwide card because you won't be paying the fees and commission. The reason that people keep going on about the Nationwide card is that it is a genuinely good deal. You don't have to commit a lot of money up front. You don't pay fees. You don't pay commission. You don't get ripped off when you want to access your own money in another country. Their service is good and you can control everything online. Can't ask for anything more really!

redhotchillipep!

these cards are brilliant! I got a couple back in August when the dollar rate was 1.86, and added regularly untill we went away (just got back) They are so easy to use, and I don't have a huge credit card bill to look forward to, as everything has been paid for! Also, it is easy check how much you have left on them You can also get them fee free if you go through the Matalan website. Heat added
