Costco merchandises a lot of US products, so sure the market basket there is going to cost more. Mexicans will either be able to afford US products in their budget or they won't. We won't starve to de

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.

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.
