I didn't have time to say test it at various shops using different cards. But I had a hotel charged in jpy which I cancelled. It took many days for the cancellation to appear on my card. On the day of posting, I believe visa's rate published was 119.2, but chase had charged me 119.9. I thought visa's rate was already quite bad because usdjpy was trading mostly between 117-118 in between the days I had cancelled and the day it posted. Needless to say, I was quite pissed off. But given that the net difference was $10 USD I really didn't have the energy to fight over it.

On another note, I do use my US cards in HK all the time, and the rates between visa/mastercard/amex were remarkly close in HK, given that USDHKD hardly moves and is a pegged currency.
