Chase United Mileage Plus VISA ends foreign transaction fees

I just got this note from Chase Card Services:

> Designed from its inception to provide unparalleled travel benefits, your United® Mileage Plus® Club Visa® Card has now been further enhanced.

> As of February 15, 2011, you will no longer be charged foreign transaction fees.1 That means that you'll now save 3% on all international purchases made using your United Mileage Plus Club Visa Card.

> This exciting new benefit is sure to make your international travel experience even more enjoyable. Best of all, you needn't do anything to take advantage of it – the change will automatically take effect on February 15, 2011.

This is huge for international travelers—there are very few credit cards that do not charge foreign transaction fees. Good call, Chase; you've just ensured that I stick to your card for the foreseeable future![^1]

[^1]: I'm not sure whether this benefit extends to all Chase Mileage VISA cards—check your cardmember agreement to be sure.
