How does the Grabr CashCard save me money?

For purchases made overseas, you'll save a lot of money by using Grabr CashCard over your traditional credit card. Please note that your savings will vary based on the issuing bank and country of your traditional credit card.

For example, Argentinian card holders will only be subject to an Impuesto Pais of 8% rather than 30%! Brazilian card holders will enjoy making purchases without being charged the tourism exchange rate (dólar turismo).
