foreign transaction charge
« on: December 16, 2011, 11:42:24 AM »
I was suggested to order some parts from a web company called Parts Select.  The service was outstanding, price was good, and delivery on just the lowest cost shipping option was great...about 3 days.   I did not notice that the business is located in Nova Scotia, so a $2.00 foreign transaction charge showed up on my visa bill. 
 
They don't hide the fact they are in Canada...I just didn't notice, so I will have to think about the charges if I order again.  But the service and delivery were hard to beat!

Actually, I thought that WAS referred to me.  I probably just got the name mixed up.  I will stay "local" in the future.
