Hey startup peeps! Do you have recommendation for a USD credit card for businesses by Canadian banks? Inclined to just stick with my regular bank (scotia) but wondering if there's more info/features I should be looking into. Any tips appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less

Rubsun HoCheck out Goldmoney - they have a gold denominated credit card that will save you a lot of money on the usual bank forex fees. And it's a Canadian "startup".

Mark van BerkelI recently got a Amazon VISA that's provided by Chase bank, which has no foreign currency exchange fees. www.amazon.ca/gp/cobrandcard/marketing.html

Misha PlotkineIf you're ok with using personal accounts for it, the Amazon visa as Mark van Berkel mentioned is the best choice, the no fx fee (you get charged the visa overnight rate which is usually just a bit above spot) means you will actually get a better rate on the fx conversion than with any Canadian bank because they take a spread to the spot rate. The same terms are actually provided on the Marriott rewards premier visa

Melissa Shapiro NightingaleTd is useful on the east coast of the US but only so so on the west so check state coverage if you know where you're likely to use it. BMO has a relationship with Harris bank out of Chicago. Scotia has a relationship with BoA which is everywhere in the US. And AmEx is a great US business card but don't think it's integrated with AmEx Canada (or wasn't when I moved here a couple years ago). Good luck!!
