Sooner or later ya gotta spendem, right?EMR said:If you convert dollars to pesos at amex they give you the days interbank rate which is in between the normal buy sell. But you do not have to get pesos. I use schwab to get pesos out of the atm because there are no fees but if I need dollars, I go to AMEX. Amex will give you dollars, I have cashed more than 10 personal checks there over the last year and have walked out with 5k in dollars (100's) each time. The limit is 5k per calendar month. SO if you take dollars, no fee at all.
Will Disco give a better dollar to peso rate than AMEX?
If you take dollars without paying the conversion fee at AMEX, you will probably pay more when you pay with the same dollars at a store like DISCO.
