Moments ago, I was reviewing my bank accounts online and saw a $7.20 “international purchase transaction fee.” I’ve never even HEARD of an international purchase transaction fee.
“Whaaaaaaaa?” I thought, “I haven’t bought anything today, let alone anything from another nation.”
How wrong I was! A few days ago, I ordered two pair of glasses from coastalcontacts.com, which advertises “All orders made and shipped to you from North America!”. Ah, should have spotted that sooner.
Curses. Now I know how Canadians must feel, paying out the nose for American merchandise.
Those glasses had better be incredible.
