信用卡

  • 在美国是一种很常见和方便的付款方式,可以避免随身携带大量现金的麻烦。除了个别地方(如快餐馆),绝大多数的地方都接受信用卡。

  • 申请流程:

    • 申请:学校附近的“促销”;网上申请

    • 信用卡公司审核

    • 批准:收到信用卡

    • 激活

    • 使用

    • 付帐单


Slide13 l.jpg
信用卡

  • 各大信用卡公司大多推出针对学生的信用卡,对信用记录要求较低,适合新生申请并相对容易申请成功,此类信用卡会有一些优惠例如免年费、网上帐务管理、前几个月0% APR等。

  • 信用卡公司还会推出一些有积分优惠(reward credit card)或者现金返还(cash back credit card)的信用卡,往往要求更高的信用记录。新生也可以选择申请此类有优惠的信用卡,但是建议在来美国一段时间之后、有一定信用度积累的时候再申请。

Cell phone & Internet ( 移动电话与互联网)

Dongxiao Li

CSSA VP of Logistics


Slide32 l.jpg
手机与网络

  • 手机供应商

    • AT&T (Cingular)

    • Verizon

    • T-Mobile

    • Sprint

  • Verizon和Sprint大多使用CDMA的网络;AT&T (formerly Cingular)和T-Mobile则多数使用GSM, 国内的3频以上手机可以直接使用。


Slide33 l.jpg
手机与网络

  • 买手机和选择套餐

    • 选手机供应商:需要考虑网络覆盖面积,服务资费,通话质量

    • 选套餐:需签一年或者两年的使用合同,在合同期内更改合同需交纳约$150 -- $200违约金。

    • 交押金:新生初到美国,由于还没有信用记录,一般还需交纳几百元不等的押金(deposit),一年之后退还。

    • 选手机:有些是免费的,有些则只需付几十美金。一般签的服务合同越长,手机就越便宜。有时还会有rebate。

    • 手机开通:交activation fee。拿到手机后,马上就可以使用。


Slide34 l.jpg
手机与网络

  • 用手机打国际长途

    • 购买预付费电话卡(选择有PA local access number的电话卡)

      • www.phonecardonsale.com

      • www.cybercalling.com

      • www.firstphonecard.com

      • www.onesuite.com

      • www.callingsaving.com

      • www.sinocalling.com

    • 在美国打国际长途须先拨011,然后是国家代码,城市代码及用户号码。例如,拨打北京(010) 的电话61234567 ,应为011-86-10-61234567。注意在城市区号前不加零。


Slide35 l.jpg
互联网

  • 互联网服务提供商(ISP)

    • DSL上网: AT&T,Verizon和MCI

    • Cable Modem上网: Comcast

  • 申请

    • 因为宽带互联网的接入基于电话线或有线电视网络,所以互联网的接入常常作为捆绑服务(bundle)的项目,与本地电话或者有线电视服务共同出售。

  • 费用

    • 网费一般也采用包月的形式,也是使用后再付费。

    • 很多公司会有促销政策,如免费提供Modem,或有$100的rebate,或前六个月有折扣等。

    • 这些offer在网上可以搜索和查询。以下是一些有用的网址:

      • http://www.comcastoffers.com/7/

Slide40 l.jpg
公司提供的医疗保险

Other Choices:

各家保险公司为个人提供的医疗保险,覆盖面差别很大,价格亦无固定标准。在签合同以前,一定要看清哪些病症不包含在内、看病报销的比例是多少等。
