I second all of that. I can use the ATMs from Arab Bank but so far I have been unable to use any other ATM with my BofAholes card. Also, I have a Capital One credit card and it is 100% true that they have no fees for making international purchases. None. I have had this card for a long time and I love them love them love them. In Jordan I use it whenever I can which unfortunately is usually only grocery shopping.
Bank of America charges $5.00 for every withdrawal plus 1% of the withdrawn amount. Arab Bank caps withdrawals at 250JD so if you withdraw the maximum amount you are charged $9.00US every time you use the ATM unless you are lucky enough to have one of the ancient cards.

I remember some peoples ATM cards not working in some machines in Jordan, but working in the one right next to it. It was really weird.
For low fees check out any Capital One credit card. They have 0% foreign transaction fees, and are the only American company to do so. That would help save you a LOT of money.
