I feel like a dork.

See, okay — I’ve known for a while that it would greatly simplify my record-keeping if I had a dedicated credit card for business-related purchases. And what with these research trips to London, a decent number of those purchases are made overseas. And, well, the terms this card offers for such things are actually pretty good.

So I’ve just applied for a <snooty tone> Harvard Alumni credit card. </snooty tone>

I mocked kniedzw for getting one; now I’m eating my words. But I’m still going to feel like a giant dork the first hundred times I whip it out to pay for anything.

Edited for userpic change: Because really, if I’m going to do the snooty tone, I need the image to go with it.

    Did you check for what their foreign exchange surcharge is? Pretty much all major cards, other than those issued by Capital One, are charging 3% or more, while CO is still only charging the previously standard 1%.

    I remember when my mom got her Cornell Alumni credit card, it had a picture of the main Student Union and everything. I remember thinking that it was all classy (I was maybe a high school freshman?). Somehow, the Binghamton University Alumni credit card they keep trying to shove at me just doesn’t have the same effect. 🙂

    It’s good to have a credit card just for business, though – I have one – it makes it simple to sort out your finances. 😉
