I don't mind paying in USD. Is there any way here in Israel?

How do you get your funds deposited from here to your US checking account?
I don't think there's a way to pay from Israel. Why don't you ask the CC company?

For me, I either have funds coming from the US in the first place, or transfer money there. (The latter is probably the most reasonable solution for you. You just have to find a way to easily transfer funds to the US. I always find people who will make a US transfer to me in exchange for a Shekel transfer to them)

I have all my cards sent to my parents in Virginia. Cards that I need for spending here I get someone to bring to me. Otherwise they stay in Virginia for my parents to go to CVS/Walmart/Target/etc with until the next time I'm in the states to pick them up.

They really appreciate how much easier Redcard has made it.  ;D

Can you please explain for your fellow brothers in Israel what this means?

He probably means it made it easier for them to load money.

Yup. They agreed to help me when all it entailed was going to CVS, buying out a rack of VRs, and sending me the pins. I felt bad asking them to do too much spend for me when we started having to buy OVs, and go to WM or buy MOs. Now that it's just a trip to Target (where my mother goes all the time anyway), and a few swipes, I don't feel bad having them do a whole lot more spend.

OK. I checked them, but couldn't find OV.

Now, how & where do you use VRs in Israel?

Recon is not CS. That's not HUCA, that's just talking to the wrong person.
Congrats anyway.

I always request for a card to Israel and they say it will take up to 2 weeks and it takes about a week and a half.
Why do you get it so fast? Maybe cause you do it by phone? What do you tell them?
