Is Cambodia still using the 50 dollar bill?

Post by daeum_tnaot »

I brought some cash with me from overseas as a free cash transfer. ATM won't take them as a deposit even though they are in perfect condition (except in a slight curve from being in the wallet). Was wondering if this is one of the bills they're not using any more?

Often saw 50ers this year, no reason to not be in circulation i would think.
For bad notes, there is a trick: Go to NAGA and they have a machine to top up your casino-card, that machine accepts almost any bill, even real bad-ones. Put it on your card, play for some dollars on the roulette, and let you pay out again. I have some 100-notes and a 50-one ( from 1983) and want to try it also, but forget them home last year, if anyone goes to the US and wants them, its 250 US$ I have !!

And you would ask here rather than at a money changer . ?
I won’t send my “ wife “ any money because she lost her ABA app .
They don’t have ATMs out in the jungle anyway .
But it’s the principle .. why should i waste gas going to a “ wing “ ?
I know I’m lazy but jeezus … 🙄🙄🙄

Ok maybe I will just have to walk in the bank to deposit. Or maybe it was the particular ATM

How many times did you try? Often, there are notes that are rejected the first go round, but click "Add money" and the second or sometimes third time they're accepted.

I've had some success with depositing less than perfect dollar bills at ABA's cash deposit machines. They warn you that there's a 10% charge for dirty/damaged bills, but so far they've never charged me.

I’ve had that problem before, but usually it’s just a few that the machine won’t take. but this time they rejected all of them two or three times. Maybe that ATM doesn’t take 50s?

I will be in september back in PP and if someone can take the old 250 dollars to the US and change them to newer-ones, I asked here already 2 years before and I understood thats the only way to change old dollars (they are from 1983 and in good shape). But i will try the trick at NAGA first, that was a tip i get from some wellknown bar-owner on street 51 last year.

If you get constipated, like I do, why not ram those US bills up your rectum, like I do? Works for me.
