    Default Cheapest way to convert EUROs to US Dollars in Detroit Area...

    OK, here's an interesting question... I know that bank wires from Europe are costly... so I'm getting in the mail 25 Euros for something I sold that I'm mailing off to a Belgian fellow. Where are the cheapest places to convert Euro's to dollars?

    I just called my bank, and there's an $8 fee (and a 1 week wait)... they said it would be even more for a bank wire.

    Anyplace else around that's cheaper??

    How ironic... I remember going to Germany, and even small middling banks would only charge about $2 for exchanging USA currency, and you'd get the funds immediately.

    unfortunately, I think you should have done the paypal route, if possible. do you go to a CU?

    Other than the airport exchange, I recall one in Birmingham, I think on Merrill St.

    I've never had anything but problems changing over money in the U.S.

    That being said, The NUMBER 1 easiest way to do it in Detroit is to go to the casino and they will change it right over at the cashiers counter.

    Good advice, thanks. Does that work for any currency? Even, say, the Croatian kuna?
