For credit transactions using your credit card, CapOne does not charge a 3% currency conversion premium - most other cards will charge this, including JP Morgan Chase cards. Very useful for international travel, including Canada.
Chip-equipped cards are not widely available in the US as there are very few merchants/places that are equipped to handle them. I traveled to Europe last summer and had no problem with my mag-stripe cards.
