9-5-14 amazon winner
Congratulations to #48 that is ErinP. I will send you the code for the Amazon e-Gift soon.

Now on to the results. I asked if international fees were an important issue for you and if they would basically be a deal breaker. The results told me:

  • 86% said YES
  • 14% said NO

Now to be fair most of those who said it did not really matter to them said so because they did not travel outside the USA. That is a good reason not to care, but for the rest of us it really does matter as those fees can be HUGE.

AMEX, I have seen, made the choice with the Delta AMEX cards that is, to remove the fees as of 1MAY2014, to help convince you to keep the card always in your wallet. I can tell you that I personally just about NEVER used my Delta AMEX cards outside the USA due to the fee pre-1MAY2014 but now do use them more and more. I think any card that does still have the fee needs to rethink that choice.

Have a great weekend everyone! – René
