Similar to cove, I have a Chase Sapphire Preferred card that I use locally, then pay it off monthly from funds I have in a US bank account. It works especially well for restaurants and travel expenses here, because Chase's bonus categories are worldwide.
I just received a phone call from Autobarn asking me if I wanted to pick up my ‘click and collect order from November.’ They offered to put the item back on the shelf but mark it as picked up, so I would still get the Velocity points. Of course I accepted that offer.
