Starting May 1, if you have a American Express Delta Gold credit card, you will no longer have to pay foreign transaction fees!
American Express sent me an email yesterday – from which I stole the above image – that confirmed the change, so check your in-box. This should not be a significant reason to apply for this credit card, as there are other no-foreign transaction fee credit cards with better day-to-day spending rewards or ancillary benefits like airport lounge access or text concierge and signup bonuses with more valuable miles (Delta miles are semi-worthless due to the constant devaluations over the past year). However, if this is your primary card, it’s definitely nice that you will be soon saving 3-5% on international purchases.
Just a quick Tuesday tip!
