    Hi Lucky
    Firstly congrats on an excellent daily read!
    I wanted to ask you if you are considering posting any material to benefit UK loyalty point collectors.
    Every where I look the best or in many cases, the only deals are available to US, and not UK cardholders.
    With Brexit looming, I'd happily offer Donald the UK, if we can get point parity on this side of the pond.
    Best regards

    Part of the reason for the disparity between US and non-US credit card rewards is the merchant fee structure and local laws. I think non-US card issuers make less compared to a US card.

    Years ago there were rewards when spending with debit cards in the US. However, a US law capped fees on debit card transactions and offering rewards was no longer financially feasible for the card issuer.
