Re: Swiss Credit Cards

Service charge for foreign currency transactions is 2,5%. It seems like it pays out to have a EU card for Euro transactions (if you also have a bank account in the EU), or does someone have better info of cards with lower service charges?
There's the Cornèrcard Miles & More Gold (VISA), which has a 0.9% service charge, but costs a whopping CHF 220 a year. If you have FTL status with Miles&More it costs only CHF 140 though and if you're SEN or HON it's free.

Or then there's the cheap way; the Coop Supercard Plus which is free with a service charge of 1.5%. You don't get any miles on it, but you get 1 Superpoint per 2 Francs spent and you can convert Superpoints into Miles&More miles. The regular exchange rate is 2:1, so you'll end up with a measly 0.25 miles per Franc though . In the past there have been yearly promotions with a 1:1 exchange rate, but word is that they will not return.
