Exchange Rate

Recommended Posts

ezpz when the peso goes in the opposite direction do your Mexican helpers charge a lessor amount. Seems fair?

.

I'll be glad to give you a $ dollar $ every time the peso gets stronger and goes up in value, if you give me a $ dollar $ every-time the peso loses value. ;)

Not all exchange houses charge that much. I have never seen it that much higher before. In fact never, lakeside

Walking past Intercam today, I saw that the current average rate between Buy and Sell was over 19 pesos! This is great for us USians. For the Mexicans, it's inflationary, and it affects their household budgets. We USians can help by tipping well, giving raises or little perks to deserving employees, and get out there and spend some pesos locally!

That difference would have had to have been on a $100 usd exchange of buying and/or selling.

Don't see how they could "sell" you pesos at 19 to the dollar. That must be the "buy" rate. At Costco today I used a Chase MC and got 18.24 on the exchange.

It does not include the major banks in the US. Mostly credit unions and small banks.

For the people who are having trouble transferring money to here, who can't use FE Exchange and some others, it might be an alternative.
