According to this New York Times article, Chase will be waiving the foreign transaction fees on the United Mileage Plus Club Visa and the Continental Presidential Plus card. I can’t find another source on this so can’t confirm it, though generally if it’s in the New York Times I’m thinking it’s a bit more than a rumor.
Now, these are the super-expensive credit cards offered by Continental and United, which also include lounge access. So this isn’t a cheap way to avoid foreign transaction fees. However, if you already have the card, or are thinking about getting the card, this is yet another consideration.
Chase also doesn’t have foreign transaction fees on the British Airways Signature Visa or Hyatt Visa credit cards, both of which have a much lower annual fee. Most of my spend nowadays goes onto the British Airways Visa card, though that’ll likely change soon as I just signed up for the American Express Premier Rewards Gold card (offering triple Membership Rewards points per dollar spent on airfare).
