Re: Credit card: 1.2% international processing fee... avoidable?

It didn't pull a fast one on you, it's always been this way. I encourage you to familiarize yourself the terms and conditions of all of your cards. IMO avoiding weekends or transferring cash beforehand is a pretty easy rule... and their justification for the policy is also reasonable.

To emphasize another cool feature of it, they allow up to 200 CHF of international ATM withdrawals with no fees for their premium-less account (the ATM itself will still charge its fee). As my post finance debit card never works, it's been a great lifeline for me.
I personally used Revolut for a couple of years, with few problems and found it a handy alternative.
I have since changed my mind.

Previously they allowed a far higher amount for cash withdrawals. 200 francs is hardly a serious amount.
