I've been doing a bit of research regarding credit and moving overseas, and stumbled upon an AMEX support page
which allows a card holder to transfer their card to a new country with them when they move, meaning you keep a line of credit without needing to re-apply and can have it reported to a local Credit bureau.(Sidenote by admin: Here is an older thread about the AmEx Global Transfer program you may be interested in reading)
Now for my questions:
If I was to get an AMEX Green card in Australia and then move to the US, What happens when the card transfers over? Would it be:
1) the same card but now with US$ instead of Aus$?
2) a 'new' account based on the US Terms and Conditions instead of Aus? (Annual fee charges are different amounts)
3) possible to transfer it to another product such as the Zync? This card isnt available over here.
If I applied for a credit card like the AMEX Gold Ascent
which isn't available in the US, how would they handle that? Would they basically tell me it wasn't possible to transfer over?
And.. with the charge cards (Green/Gold/Plat etc) is it possible to use them overseas where AMEX is accepted? I can't find any information regarding international transaction fees when I am looking it up, wheras the amex credit cards do.
