Where to change torn $100 bill

Post by pczz » Tue Feb 06, 2018 4:25 pm

Was told to go to the national bank, but I couldn't get past the guy on the door. he told me try Ly Hour exchange so I went there and they only offered me $70. It's a complet note, but torn about half across probably by the feeder in the ATM. I didint notice it ofr a few days so the bank will not entertain a claim. I expect to take a hit but not 30%. Anyone now any where else to change it? This could be a money making opportunity for anyone who goes back and forth to the states regularly

I remember reading something in a thread about this, there were a few suggestions but the only one i can remember is that The guy who has "angry birds" and i think "Ponytail" and some others was saying he accepts ripped notes. Good excuse for a beer maybe?

"In my bars I make a point of accepting money in any condition... rips, holes, faded areas, tape...
I think it's just good customer service.
And some of the girls' English is not quite up to scratch. I've passed girls saying to customers who have given them a ripped note "your money shit, no good".
So we take any notes, and any hard foreign currency as well. Easy enough to change it later.
Once a month I take all the damaged notes to Acleda where they exchange them without question."

Ly Hour, but you'll have to give in a bit.
I actually don't give a flying fuck, furthermore nice to meet you all here! :thumb:

I spend them in the US or exchange it for a non-torn one with a US mate.

Assuming you have a local bank account, and if its just a small tear, deposit it into an atm machine,
