    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.

    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 :unsure:

    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 :lol:

    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! :lol:
    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!!!
