Here at bunq we offer a special perk to our bunqers known as ZeroFX! Basically, we help you save up to 3% by removing the currency conversion fee for both international card payments and ATM withdrawals. That means more money in your pocket!
You might be thinking that’s great, but it’s not like I can travel anywhere right now. Well...just wait! With ZeroFx you can save even more than the 3% we originally talked about! How? One of our community members offered some valuable insights on this here.
Like most people nowadays, you probably enjoy shopping online and using your bunq cards to pay for your purchases right away. Here’s a little insider tip (thanks to our Ace user L): If you want to save more $$, switch to the shop’s local currency!
Our avid bunqer L, who was kind enough to share this tip with us, saved €200 in a single year just by using this tip!!
Example: A great pair of sneakers from an American store, listed for €100. Go ahead and change your currency option from EURO to USD. Most times, the price will be adjusted and you’ll see the item now listed for $100 USD. When you pay with your bunq card, not only does bunq cover the 1.5% currency conversion fee for you, but with current exchange rates the adjusted price will save you way more than 3%! It’s a win all around!
This thread comes from L and the original topic is HERE. We’re always happy to hear tips from you, so feel free to share them with the bunq community here on Together!
