The US issued BA Visa does indeed offer some very good deals, not least of which is commission free foreign exchange transactions, but you´d have to be granted legal residence and establish domestic bank credit, which requires a Social Security number.
The US based AAdvantage card is a bonzer, too. Hook up with Citibank and they shower you with miles.
Plus, in general, customer service over here is top notch.. No surprise there.
My experience over recent years has been that the Alaska Airlines card, affiliated with oneworld, is tremendous value. $50 companion ticket, anywhere they fly, just for signing up, plus lounge access.
Can´t beat that.
