Tired of getting ripped off when you exchange currency for your international adventures? We've partnered with OFX to bring you an exclusive foreign exchange rate that'll save your hard earned cash. It's a free membership that unlocks big savings, making your travel budget go further.

To take advantage of this rate, fill in the form at the bottom!

Beat the Banks: How OFX Beats Typical Exchange Rates

Banks make a killing on foreign exchange, padding their rates with hefty margins.

OFX operates differently, offering wholesale exchange rates much closer to the real ‘interbank' rate that banks use amongst themselves. This means you pocket the difference, potentially saving hundreds on larger transactions compared to a bank.

While you may have been using your bank for years to transfer money, and noticed that they keep repeating “no fee” transfers, what you have to keep in mind is that while there are no express “fees” added to the transfer, the rate you're getting absorbs some of your money in place of those fees.

The Power of Bulk: Why America Josh Members Get the Best Deal

OFX is a wonderful company who we've been partnered with for years now, and as part of that, they offered us a deal: We can refer our audience to their services and, as a group, get a better deal than customers who go directly to OFX.

This better rate is offered to our community because part of the America Josh mission is to make sure that everyone benefits by the referrals we offer. We always want to be fully open about our deals and we're very up front about the fact that each time we refer someone to OFX, we also get a bonus for referring you!

With every sign up: OFX gets a new customer (they get a win), America Josh gets our bonus (we get our win), and you as the customer get a better rate than the banks and other OFX customers (you get your win!)

Transparent, No-Nonsense: Say Goodbye to Hidden Fees

Tired of surprise fees eroding your exchanged money? OFX believes in upfront pricing. Unlike some providers, they clearly outline any transfer fees, so you know exactly how much you're sending and the exact amount your recipient will get. No nasty surprises!

When you login to your America Josh preferred-rate OFX account, you will be presented with a simple box that shows how much money in, and how much money you will receive. There's no extra line items confusing the process and no confusion about how much money is involved. Instead, you lock-in a rate, and then transfer the money directly from your bank to OFX.

Trust is everything: Speak to a real person on the phone

The main reason that America Josh has continued to work with OFX for so long is this: You can actually get someone on the phone if you need them.

When you're making a transfer, especially a larger one for a house deposit or paying down loans, it can be scary to throw your money into the digital abyss. For that reason, OFX allow you to get one of their experts on the phone and talk you through the process step-by-step.

They'll confirm bank accounts, confirm that you're doing the right thing, and ultimately confirm that your money is on the way to you at the rate you agreed.

We know sometimes emails back and forth simply aren't enough!

Convenience is King: Exchange Currency Anytime, Anywhere

With OFX's online platform and mobile app, you can access your America Josh member rate and manage your currency exchanges at your fingertips. Their service works around the clock, letting you lock in a favorable rate whenever it suits you, not just during banking hours.

If the rate is good, and you need the money, you can make the transfer and receive your money quickly.
