    Monetary Currency

    Discussion started by Sarah Tonin - Mar 15, 2004

    so the other day I was rummaging thru my luggage bag which i still havent unpacked from my trip to sao paolo last year(almost a year before last, damn) and i come upon little over $300 brazilian real in one of my jean pockets. you know damn well ya fuckin girl was amped but soon that ampededness turned into confusion and i was soon slapped with the reality of that i wasnt in brasil anymore and this money is completely worthless over here. does anyone know of any spot im supposed to go to trade this shit in for some us currency. the bank, customs(im not really down with driving all the way to D.C for this shit as someone suggested), airport?

    Live mid-market rates as of 2004.03.15 16:48:57 GMT.
    300.00 BRL
    Brazil Reais = 103.289 USD
    United States Dollars
    1 BRL = 0.344295 USD 1 USD = 2.90449



    go to your local international airport there should definately be a currency exchange booth somewhere there
    your local bank shuold also take deposits and automatically convert them
    or your local city most likely will have booths

    go to your bank. any bank can exchange money. any bank can also sell foreign money. most don't have it on hand, so you have to 'order' it, but they can all get it.
    trust me on this.

    on a side note, what the hell is up with the double speak?
    'luggage bag'? 'monetary currency'?
    thats like saying 'trout fish' or 'carrot vegetable'.

    well deto used to work for a bank and we did do exchanges with some currency, and if we couldn't on the spot we would send it out to another bank that did and you would get it in about 2 weeks. it cost about $6.00 plus tax, if i remember correctly....
