Canadians Beware of Marriott Rewards More

Discussion created by musselman on Aug 2, 2018

If a Canadian purchase items through the rewards program from a Canadian vendor the charge will be converted to US dollars by the provider and then your Canadian credit card will convert back to Canadian dollars. In my case I purchased an Apple product, was billed in Canadian dollars by Apple and  then the charge appeared on my SPG card in US dollars!  It cost me 10% more to buy through the application than if I had bought directly from Apple.  Do not use this application for any purchases!
