...when it comes to getting money exchanged. My grandparents always come back from trips with lots of left over currency. They keep some as souvenirs, but leave the rest just sitting there! They gave me the remainder and I was able to get all five exchanged here on the spot! The teller was able to buy my Euro's, Vietnamese Dong's, Canadian Dollar's, Australian Dollar's, and Chinese Yuan. I was also able to get a severely discounted transaction rate because of their coupon I found online. I got a better rate than my own bank!

I do a lot of travel and this place is my go-to spot for foreign money exchange. Their rates and fees are as good and often better than most banks and exchange offices that I've dealt with, plus you don't have to have an account.
They always have the currency I need, whether it's euros or pounds or pesos. The one time I needed money for vietnam, they were able to get it within 2 days and they didn't charge me any additional fees.
Highly recommended if you need money for a trip out of the country.
