    Hmmmmm I will have to look more into it. I specifically asked "If I am in another country and I am charged but it is in US dollars will there be a transaction fee" The answer was NO, if the charge is in US dollars then no fee. I will have to confirm again before i go!

    It all depends on the type of Amex card you have. I have an Amex Gold Delta Skymiles - used it on our trip in Sept. and there was no fee.

    I have the Jet Blue Card, that is what I was told there was no fee, as long as charge was in US dollars. We shall see.

    I use travelers checks throughout my stay, cash them as needed in the casino, so no cost (Citibank doesnt charge me as an employee)(actually i am a former employee thank goodness, but the bank doesnt know that LOL).
    I have always paid my hotel bill with my AMEX Jetblue card, and never saw a 3% fee or any fee at all. Unless i am missing something, which i doubt becasue i am very cheap. Ask my wife.
