What is the Foreign Fee Transaction On My Card
I booked for October 2010 using the "Love Away" Plan. Sounds great!! However, when I looked at my Credit Card transactions today, I saw this $7.74 foreign transaction fee. I guess this fee will occur each month that I pay on the Love Away Plan with that card? Do all credit card companies charge this fee? And is there anyway to avoid it? I guess I need to call the credit card company. But credit card companies are "playing hard ball" these days. They already increased my APR...just because they felt like it apparently. Not COOL. :mad:
Found a solution! Kind of
I kind of found a solution to the foreign transaction fees! All of our credit cards have a 3% foreign transaction fee. Our Bank Visa Check Card, however, only has a 0.8% foreign transaction fee!!! The card does have a daily limit of $2500 in charges, BUT I happily called my bank & asked them to temporarily lift the limit, and then I HAPPILY called up Couples to make the final payment! So, we saved $60 in fees! TAKE THAT, CREDIT CARD COMPANIES!!!! :) :) Just wish I had thought of this when we made our down payment to Couples.
WOO-HOO!!! All monies paid to Couples & less than 2 months to CSA!!!! :) :) Hope other people's Visa check cards are similar & you can use this little trick too!!
