I have $ 200.00 that I want in American money , how much am I going to lose ?
about 40 bucks
Why would you lose any?
i didnt want to touch that i chose to humor.
There dollar is much higher then Canadas.
Canada = 83. cents out of the dollar.
So I would be losing .17 cents for every dollar out of 200.
give or take a few cents.
you'll have about $160 american
you won't "lose" much, as it's still has similar buying power to $200...lol
the only amount you'll lose is teh difference between the trading value and the banks rate(yes the bank makes money off exchanging money for you)
What about the American money that I have left over .. can I put that back into Canadian dollars?
It doesnt work like that
Yet again, if you already know the answer, why ask?
I didnt do the math.
I figured I would just ask.
And I had other questions.
Is it free at the bank to change over the money to American?
I have TD.
see my above post.
you can convert back any money you have left over.
you do not "lose" any money, in fact your american money will have MORE buying power then any canadian money you have with you.
No. The banks all charge a percentage of the money you convert.
$200CN for a trip down south=Baller status hahahaha
Is it different with every bank.
Because I have BMO to.
What's that supposed to mean?
lol.. your going on vacation with $200CN..??? shit.. I spend that in a couple hours in Halifax.. let alone going down south for a week.
it means you'll blow through $200 cdn very quickly.
you also don't HAVE to use your bank, call around, see who gives the best rates
I've never been down south, so I figured 200$ should be fine.
please tell me it's 100% all inclusive?
but I would take more then $160us with you, try to bump it to at least $250-300
I went to mexico to an all inclusive and spent $400 in a week
This thread is entertaining.
Yes it's all inclusive.
I dont plan on buying a lot of stuff down there, or going on "day trips"
I just want to relax on a beach!
per afternoon and night.. lol.. 17 knows what its all about..lol
I didn't bring anything back last month from Mexico, and went through $500-$600USD in a week.
What did you spend your money on?
prem alcohol tends to add up
it's so tasty to get good expensive tequila for like $3 a shot.
tips, incedentials, etc.
you should get off the resort for at least a day experience the place where your going. Other wise why spend so much money for somethign you can do in the summer at home.
