So, I took (relatively short) trips to London and Bangkok this month, and the avoidance of the foreign transaction fee made me feel better about my recent choice to upgrade to the Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Card.  But - and here's the funny timing on that topic - this week I also received a (small - $18 - but nonetheless welcome) check from the long-running class action against some of the credit card companies for playing fast and loose with foreign transaction fees.

 

See, generally, http://www.dailyfinance.com/2011/12/22/the-foreign-currency-conversion-settlement-check-is-finally-in-t/

Sure, the attorneys made a fortune on the suit, but I get the sense that millions of us - literally millions of us - got these small reimbursements, which is better than nothing....

 

Happy New Year
