I had a horrible experience last January. I was sick but needed to convert to 700 euros for a trip to Cuba. I drove to CE Milpitas which was further than other locations because the reviews were so good. But the lady was taking forever to do the transaction. She said they weren't answering to approve the transaction. I think she thought I was a terrorist or something because I had a cough mask on, but it's because I was sick and coughing. And I took it off to talk to her so she could see my face and also gave her my CA drivers license. This weird guy came and started videotaping me with a cell phone and she had me standing there waiting, cold and sick for at least half an hour. Eventually she told me max she could convert was 600 so I took it. But it was very weird and unprofessional and super slow service. I am a us citizen with a current drivers license and no criminal record or anything. All I can conclude is some kind of racial profiling. Weird. Made my cold worse. She could have at least let me sit down if I was going to have to wait that long.
I was in San Jose last September for a business trip and I have some left over foreign currencies in my wallet..and am so happy to have found this a place to have my Euros & British pounds converted into USD .This place is so convenient inside the the Great Mall. Their rates are very competitive, better than the airports & the fee is very reasonable and a very quick service, no waiting & friendly teller. I will highly recommend this place to have your foreign currency transactions, the teller says they do buy & sell 85 currencies and no coins.
When I asked my bank if they did currency exchange they said no, but gave me the name of this place. I don't know how long this place has been around, but they do a great job and have plenty of currency. I didn't expect them to have enough money for my transaction, but they did.
A quality company! They have the current exchange rates of popular currencies posted on a digital board so that you know you are receiving the best exchange rate. Great customer service with smiling and helpful staff. Very knowledgeable in helping receive the best exchange and very fast turnover time. Most of my exchanges were on the spot and some have been less than one business day. Soooo much better than my own bank.
