Only no FX fee no annual fee from amex
« on: August 09, 2018, 05:50:32 AM »
I see that the only amex card with no foreign transaction fee and no annual is the Hilton honors card, it comes with a lot of premium services like returns and bagage insurance etc. Which comes most of the time only with an annual fee, is it worth to have this card?

If you're looking for a good card for international travel, this is not it.

An Amex is tough to use in many places outside the US.

I didn't have an issue anywhere in Switzerland a few weeks ago with an Amex.

Right, but what are the alternatives? With no annual and no FX?

All or if not most CapitalOne cards, td bank cards,Amazon chase card, UME Travel perks,and lots more.
Each has its ups and downs, for example a non af card like the chase Amazon card which gets you 5x on purchases if you have a prime account, then again you can stock up at office supply stores and buy amazon at 5x so depends on what your needs are Or just to have a no af card,and no fx fee.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Okay got it, TD credit cards I have, but you don't get anything besides cash back, no car insurance in Israel, no baggage insurance etc. And the Capitol one cards do not have any perks either, so I think this card is worth having from what I see
