Why shopping in foreign currency benefits you?

Lots of great products from overseas websites. Kitchen wares at up to 70% off department store prices. Great home ideas and innovations at good discounts. Better value on house ware products… and more…

But you are concerned – products are listed in foreign currency. Is it going to be more expensive? I don’t know the exchange rate. Will I be charged higher fees? Don’t worry about it!

Let’s understand why shopping in foreign currency actually benefits you!

Top 6 Reasons You Benefit & Save More By Shopping Overseas!

  1. You’re buying products from the source. Which cuts out the middleman and gives you savings!
  2. Japanese goods paid in Japanese Yen, eliminates the foreign currency exchange and poor conversion rate charged to you by banks and intermediaries.
  3. More savings to shop in foreign local currency! Shopping for foreign products in your home currency forces you to pay a fixed exchange rate which would be pegged at a higher rate than a current exchange rate charged when you pay by foreign local currency at the point of purchase.
  4. Shop in foreign currency and get up to 10% savings upfront! If you insist to pay in your home currency, you could be paying a “dynamic currency conversion” fee (around 3%) plus transaction fees (around 3%) on top of currency exchange rates, which makes you pay extra 6-10% fees for nothing! Get up to 10% savings by shopping overseas in foreign currency!
  5. Get up to 10 times More points with overseas shopping! Shop overseas in foreign currency and get more benefits! Many credit cards give you double points, 5-times more points and some even 10-times more points for foreign currency spending. Earn points more quickly and redeem more shopping vouchers, gifts or dining privileges! (examples below, different banks have different offers, banks T&C applies…)
