Thanks for the advice everyone. all but my discover has the EMV chip. But i know that all of them have a foreign transaction fees tied to them. So with your advice it, I might look into upgrade my Citi card to the Thank you Premier. I have the preferred. As I think my first year might be free. I'll plan to use the card for the big things. Going to the market and paying the bills. But I'll see about caring a fair amount of cash. I did just open a Charles Schawb account 4 months ago for trading. I have a wells Fargo as my main account. Would it be a good idea to move my money to Charles Schwab for my 3 month stay? I wonder if they offer a Visa Debit card for their accounts?
But yeah, I would still like to work on my points. As it is points that will pay for my plane ticket there and back.
Everyone seems to agree that T-Mobile is the way to go there. As I wanted to be able to have data on my phone, with out a nearly 1000$ bill.
I am trying hard to get some German down, part of the program is to give me a crash course in the language on top of earn some credit for my degree.
Also, I am going to be in Hanover. Since some of you know a lot of Germany, where should I go. What should I do? Almost every weekend I'll have a chance to take a train or bus to go somewhere. I am even thinking of going out to the Netherlands for a weekend.
