I logged into Tiger Airways today to book a ticket to the Philippines. This was the screen offered to me. I had a choice to pay in “original sales currency” or in USD.
If I had paid in USD, I would have paid $111.68USD.
Or course I refused to pay in USD, and ran the transaction in Pesos. Here is my credit card statement.
I paid $106.18USD by REFUSING DCC. That is a savings of $5.50. Enough to pay for another Starbucks Coffee.
It is MY money. No theirs. They have no right to keep $5.50USD for no reason.
