So far, the comparison to end of April vs xe.com is:
Chase MC: 1.0000 (exactly the mid-rate, to 4 significant digits)
Chase Visa (2014): 1.004124 (0.41% above)
Chase Visa (2015): 1.007236 (0.72% above)

This year, Visa transactions are so far over 0.7% more expensive than Mastercard transactions.
This corresponds with my data. I stopped using Visa for foreign spend.
