I will be using my USAA Debit card to withdraw Euros in Italy. Does USAA charge a foreign transaction fee?


Yes, a 1% foreign transaction fee on all signature based and ATM transactions

That is horrible that USAA would charge a foreign transction fee for their cards.  

I too am extremely disappointed in this charge. Many banks no longer have this charge and I am in disbelief that a bank for military stationed throughout the world would take advantage of their customers.

USAA is usually ahead of other financial institutions in providing excellent service to their members, so I was very disappointed to discover that this foreign transaction fee is charged and that the practice has not yet been stopped, even though other banks in the country have.  Did somebody responsible at USAA forget what they are supposed to be all about, i.e. "membership service"?
