The ABOC Q3 Rewards Bring a Foreign Transaction Fee Lifting
The third quarter is just around the corner. And Amalgamated Bank of Chicago is ready with an attractive forthcoming rewards category that will appeal to all travel lovers.
It will be recalled that ABOC credit cards come with 1x ABOC Bonus Rewards Points on all purchases. But their no annual fee Platinum Rewards Mastercard® and Union Strong Mastercard® credit cards allow cardholders to earn extra 4 points per $1 on the first $1,500 in combined purchases each quarter.
This year ABOC cardholders could already enjoy their 5x points in the Dining & Grocery category during the first quarter and are still able to earn the higher rewards for Home Improvements till June 30. But what are they going to get next? Let’s look at the ABOC 2019 5x rewards calendar for the rest of the year:
- July 1 – September 30 – Travel: airline, cruise, car rental, hotel, and travel agency purchases;
- October 1 – December 31 – Automotive: automotive parts, service and repair purchases.
The Quarter 3 category is exactly what one expects to get in the summer. Even if you do not travel a lot, ABOC makes you feel like it’s time to start to. Especially if considering the following approaching update: ABOC is replacing the 3% foreign transaction fee with 0% foreign transaction fee on July 1. In the light of these benefits, the ABOC cards seem to be perfect for international travelers. You can easily pay with one at more than 30 million locations worldwide, with no insidious fees.
Note that there is one more update. Starting July to get your additional 4x points, you will need to activate the next category each quarter. Just don’t forget!
