Dollar higher vs Euro and GB where is best place to exchange?

11 May 2010 HueChen asked

Right now $1.27 USD will buy you 1 Euro. I've tried Bank of America but they are giving an exchange rate of $1.34 for 1 Euro! What a rip off. <BR><BR>Does anybody have any suggestions on good exchange places? I live in Miami, Florida - USA so i'm thinking of maybe going downtown just looking around.

    I think the best thing to do is open a checking account with Charles Schwab and you can use any ATM and get the daily exchange rate as well as all ATM fees refunded. That way you can take out money daily if you wanted to not carry around much money at one time and pay no exchange fee.

    If you are a AAA member they sell $100 packets of currency.
