I'm moving to the US from Canada, with no US based credit history. I'm starting my first year MBA and will have no income (lol). A couple of options I have right now:
1. Set up an Amex in Canada - they allow cross border transfer of credit cards pretty easily. Con: Canadian sign up perks SUCK in comparison.
- Set up a TD Americas Credit Card - they will pull my Canadian history which will be nice, but TD Bank's credit cards kinda suck
- Set up a Canadian credit card with 0% conversion fees - will be easier to set up, but also would have to pay everything off in CAD
Anyone else gone through this process? Any thoughts/advice?
