What are the best no foreign transaction fee no annual fee credit cards ?

Capital One cards don't have FTF.

Amex Platinum

BofA Travel Rewards

CSP

United Explorer

 

Just a few, I am sure there are plenty more.

I believe both Cap1 and Barclay have card products with no AF and no FTF.

IIRC, it would be one of the versions of Cap1 QS and Venture and one version of the Barclay Arrival (?).

Barclay No-AF Arrival also has no FTF. I think everything from Penfed is no-FTF and no-AF

Some of the answers above are AF cards.

 

Some of the popular cards here:

All Capitol One no AF cards

Barclaycard Arrival

Discover (mostly for China)

BofA Travel Rewards

 

I'm sure there are more I'm missing.

I know CapOne has been mentioned several times. But specifically, if you're looking for a no AF, no FTF card for travel, the VentureOne might be a good one for you. Reward of 1.25 miles per dollar spent, also.

Look into the Bank of America Travel Rewards Visa card.  No FTF, no AF, and it has smart chip technology (it's chip and sig though, not chip and pin).

Best Card out there is SDFCU no FTF, a real Chip and Pin Card, and and this CU offers really low APR

The Merrill+ card is a great visa signature card with no FTF's and no annual fee. It's worked for my travels so far!
