Money card,

Where are you seeing this? When I login to American Express and go to review my cardholder agreement it shows everything above green (Gold, Premier Gold, etc) as having 0 ForEx. Zync, Green, and Co-Branded cards are the only ones showing with any type of ForEx.

They have told me this a couple of times over the phone. When I applied for the Green card the application account mgr mentioned this to me.

You are right that the Green Card does have one, as does Zync, Optimus and Co-Branded (Non-Platinum) cards. But as far as I can tell (viewing the card holder agreements inside the member portal, none of the other cards charge one. I have used Blue Cash Preferred overseas as well without a ForEx fee as recently as two weeks ago.

I have an AMEX RP Gold and a Blue Cash Preferred. Both cards have a 2.7% forex. The only card I have without a forex is my Hyatt Visa Sig.
