What happens if I am abroad?
If you travel abroad you can still use your PODERcard to make purchases and withdraw cash, however, note that there may be some additional charges. If you are conducting a transaction in a currency other than US dollars, the merchant, network, or card association that processes the transaction may convert any related debits or credits to US dollars in accordance with their current policies.
You will be charged a fee equal to 3% of the transaction amount** (including credits and cancellations) for each transaction (in US or foreign currency) that you make at merchants (including foreign websites) outside the United States or in a foreign currency. This includes cash withdrawals.
