Best currency/bank rates when it comes to online shopping?

That day I bought something online through Amazon using my KFH prepaid card and noticed there's a huge difference between the KWD/USD rate that I was charged and the market rate, now I am considering opening an account elsewhere so I will not be ripped off by KFH every time I buy something online, any suggestions?

Most of the local banks have a currency converter on their website; you could check the conversion there.

Another suggestion would be to open a dollar account and transfer money to that account whenever the conversion rate is suitable (I'm not sure if you can deposit dollars directly), but that would be cumbersome
