American Express Platinum. This is a feature of the charge card which carries a $450 annual fee, not of any other American Express card which happens to include the word "platinum" in the name.

Thank you for the additions, Mia. I didn't realize all Cap. One cards were FTF free.

Chase British Airways doesn't have foreign transaction fees either.

This is a great idea - I am in the same boat, and I imagine many others are as well.

The Citi Executive AAdvantage Card has no foreign transaction fees as well (and a $450 annual fee)

There are two Chase Marriott cards--Premier and regular. The Premier card has no foreign exchange fees, but the regular does (the one I have).

Also, JP Morgan Select VISA has no forex fees and is a "chip and signature" card, potentially very useful for overseas use.

Updates made. Thanks. I haven't ever heard about the JP Morgan card. Are there any rewards associated with it?

Rather modest:
2 points/dollar for travel related charges (hotel, air, car rental)
1 point/dollar for everything else.

Points can be transferred to Hyatt, Marriott, and British Airways in 1000 point increments (I believe).

Chase Continental Presidential Plus card has no forex fees, although it carries a whopping annual fee.

Brilliant! Thanks for this post, exactly what I was looking for at this moment. Has anybody had any experience with any of these cards? I read in a previous thread that Capital One customer service is spotty?

I see you've been updating the list with annual fees. I was just looking at the JP Morgan Select Visa Card. It has a $95 annual fee that is waived the first year.

Yes, I was going to just update for the hefty fees, so they don't shock anyone, but maybe I will just go ahead and start adding all the fees.
