How much is the American Express Blue Cash Everyday foreign transaction fee?
The Amex Blue Cash Everyday foreign transaction fee is 2.7%. Both Amex Blue Cash Everyday and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express have that same foreign fee, applicable to any purchases processed internationally.
American Express offers cards that do not have foreign transaction fees, like the American Express® Gold Card and the American Express Platinum card. The tradeoff here is their large annual fees. There are, though, some American Express cards with no foreign transaction fee and no annual fee like the Delta SkyMiles® Blue American Express Card and the Hilton Honors American Express Card.

Keep in mind American Express may not be the best choice to take abroad due to lower international acceptance than Visa or Mastercard. While Visa and Mastercard are accepted in 200+ countries, Amex lags behind at 160+ countries. There are lots of credit cards with no foreign transaction fee on those other networks, too.
