BUT if I charge to the card, I get fees and not so good rates. I believe Canadian Centurion and Platinum cards get charges conversion rate fees.
Amex introduced the foreign transaction fees waiver on the Platinum in early 2011, so it hasn't been around for long, maybe Canadian cards are next on the list.
They have different policies in each country. When I had my first green card in 2007 the annual fee was $150 because it was a Latin America card
