How many % extra for using American Express Credit Cards?
Does anyone here know how much do the merchants usually charge extra for using American Express Cards?
I know for Visa/Mastercard, it's 2%.

Technically, they are not supposed to. It is specified in the service agreement with the card companies.

That's quite high. Looks like I can't use my DBS Black Amex card anymore

Technically, the extra % is paid to the card.ie visa or amex. Although occasionally in SG, you can get cheaper or better discount by paying cash, in most places, there will be no extra charges. For example, shopping at robinsons, 7-eleven etc.
