Boingo Wi-Fi Access with 28 Degrees MasterCardThe popular 28 Degrees Mastercard now comes with an added benefit. Cardholders can enjoy unlimited Boingo wi-fi hotspot access all over the world!

28 Degrees MasterCard cardholders can register for a free Boingo wi-fi account for access to over 1 million worldwide hotspots. Up to 4 devices can be connected to wi-fi via a single Boingo account simultaneously. Boingo wi-fi plans normally start at $9.95 per month.

With unlimited wi-fi access you can surf the net overseas at no cost. Boingo wi-fi hotspots are typically found at places like airports, train stations, convenience stores, tourist attractions and cafés. There are a few Boingo wi-fi hotspots in most major Australian cities but the vast majority can be found in Asia, western Europe and North America. They’re particularly handy when travelling around Japan, South Korea, France, Germany, UK or the United States. A map on the Boingo website shows all wi-fi hotspots.

Boingo wi-fi is also available on some flights. American Airlines, Japan Airlines and Lufthansa are among the airlines offering paid in-flight wi-fi through Boingo. It would appear that the free wi-fi available to 28 Degrees MasterCard customers also works on these airlines.

The 28 Degrees MasterCard is already a popular credit card for overseas travel. The card has no annual fee and attracts no overseas purchase fees. So it’s handy for shopping overseas or online.

Overall, AFF members find this to be a great value-add for the 28 Degrees MasterCard.

Have already registered using my 28 Degrees card – I’m not currently using Boingo but this will come in handy around Europe.

I got it too and looks like a really good proposition. Many credit cards in USA have this and Aus is just about to begin.

The Australian Cash Passport and Travelex Money cards also offer free global wi-fi access as a benefit. Hopefully the benefit will be expanded to other Australian credit cards over time.
