Ordering goods online from UK - best to pay in £s or €s?
« on: October 08, 2014, 13:48:09 pm »
Hi there
The grey matter is getting very confused! Can anyone help me get this clear in my mind?
If I order goods online from the UK and I have a choice of paying in £s or €s and am using a £sterling credit card (paid off in full each month), should I use Pounds or Euros for the best bargain? Does it actually make a lot of difference? I suppose it depends on what rate the credit card company uses to convert but my brain is just refusing to commute the options!  :-\
Any help appreciated

Surely you should use sterling, as then there are no conversion costs. Must be cheaper as you are paying a sterling bill in sterling.

Duh! Thanks PHo.
Just goes to show that my grey matter is going to mush - I was trying to make things complicated when in fact it was so simple!
