    I know these can be used almost like cash in most places, but we recieved our holiday money today from the post office, i requested mixed notes and they have given us 2 $500 cheques! Where will i be able to change a note that is for such a large amount, we had quite a bit of trouble with the $100 ones last time!

    how stupid tut tut

    can you go back and ask them to change them kate?

    you can go to a bank to change them up, they might charge you a fee tho, or go to the amex building in sand lake road. i went there when we had ours stolen, very helpful indeed they were.

    Its a big amount isnt it! I ordered them online and had them delievered, do you think they would change them for me if i took them into town?

    We dont have a car when we go on holiday, i only know international drive - can i get to sand lake road from there?

    i just looked on google earth, depending where you are on idrive but it set a point and it was 22miles or 29 minute drive, but GE isnt always correct. id say yes you could get there in a cab.

    you can only but ask kate, it shouldnt take long to get them, but you only have 5 days. go tomorrow they could have them by monday

    ok. well theres the two options when you get there, the bank or the amex building. even if it costs you $30 for a cab worth it so you can spend those big uns....i think the shops would scream at you if you went in there with those two

    I know - they are beasties arent they!! Must say, the woman on the phone was very nice and said what were they thinking sending those out!
    Think one of them we could use when we go to disney - use them to pay for our tickets? Certainly wouldnt be able to use them to pop into walgreens for the morning paper and a packet of crisps!!!
