So I left my American Express card at home on accident and had to use my Wells Fargo Visa card at a doctor's office in Mexico for the first time in over a year. Wells Fargo charged me almost EIGHT DOLLARS in fees for a SINGLE TRANSACTION!
So I did save hundreds of dollars by going to a Mexican doctor but Wells Fargo took their chunk which is infuriating, especially since it was a single purchase.
God, no wonder people warned me against using their cards. From now on, no more purchases with the Wells Fargo card, ever! It's staying at home for emergencies. I don't have any affiliation with either of these companies, but American Express doesn't charge me any of these stupid fees AND they give me points towards travel.
Wells Fargo could take a few pointers from them. I suggest to everyone, if you are coming to Mexico, bring an American Express card. They don't charge foreign transaction fees and you earn points for future travel. No more Wells Fargo for me.
