Would getting a foreign Amex card help my credit history score? I am a Canadian citizen but work for a foreign company overseas so it is difficult to get a Canadian credit card. The applications always ask for "Company name", "Company address", etc. (BTW, is there any way to get around that and still be honest?) So, I've been thinking of getting a foreign Amex card. Does the credit history built up with the foreign Amex card transfer back to the US or Canada (depending on where I eventually live)? The cheapest Amex Card available in my country is $60/year membership fee. Is this fee worth building up a credit history? Also, do some Amex card contribute to credit history differently?
