Stonegate Bank First To Issue Credit Cards That Will Work In Cuba + Card Reviews

At the present time credit cards issued by banks like Citi, Chase, Barclay, Wells Fargo and others have not been usable in Cuba, so most visitors took bundles of Euros and converted them (at a substantial loss) on the island.

Stonegate Bank has 3 types of credit cards which can be used in Cuba, including one with zero annual fee and zero minimum spend requirement. All three types are MasterCards.

The press release can be found here. Note that users of the cards must request activation of the Cuban functionality by calling the bank.
