    Have phoned the Post Office and they say there is nothing they can do.
    I ordered mixed notes and that's what they have given me - end of.

    Have xplained that that is a lot of money to cash all in one go and she still says there's nothing i can do except buy it back at a loss.

    I explained it wasn't my fault i'd got a $500 TC and she said it was hers either as i'd asked for mixed notes.

    Looks like i'm stuck with it and possibly won't be able to use it.

    Read in the Brits Guide that Walmart no longer accept travellers cheques. I'm sure they did last year, maybe someone who has already been could confirm?

    I don't know about that, but I did hear an TA adviser on the tv at the weekend say that they are getting harder to use in the US now.

    During one of out trips we had a couple of $500 TC. We bought things from the shop next to the POC and paid with one of them. The CM took id from us then went away and phoned the issuing bank. We were there about 30 minutes waiting like lemons.

    Glad you got it sorted.
