OP is referring to the foreign transaction fee. Many cards charge this, which usually is 3%, but this Amex card charges 2.7%. There are cards that charge nothing, Chase Hyatt is one example, so it boils donw to how much benefit getting the SPG points is to you.

you will never get back 2.7% in USABLE rewards ( as a friend discovered with this card last year to his chagrin ).
