Got a particularly bad rate on my AMEX PRG earlier this week (purchase made/posted on 5/4)

Two transactions GBP to USD posted at 1.47716. I had opted to pay in Pounds (this was for an SAS ticket) instead of USD because the live exchange rate was a total of $4 USD cheaper than the SAS conversion rate. Ended up getting burned due to the AMEX rate which pushed the total up about $4 over the SAS US price.

Should've either just paid USD or used my MC (which recently has been the best rate on all FX stuff I've done).

Also on the same day used my Citi Premier for a train ticket in Norway paid in NOK.

Received a rate of 8.157068 NOK to USD which looks accurate for 5/4 on XE.com
