Will using a credit card that charges foreign transaction fees, such as the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select MasterCard, in Puerto Rico incur fees? I wasn’t sure if Puerto Rico was considered “foreign” to US banks.

I can’t guarantee the rules for every bank. I called the major banks and NONE add foreign transaction fees to purchases made in US territories.
But a few require the purchase to be in US dollars! I’ll explain.
