Re: [Rant] TD Bank North's rapacious CAD -> USD rates

said by Anav:

xe.com gives basically straight rates (very misleading to us regular joe exchangers...)

Best to use something more realistic and useful such as this visa calculator and use charge fee rate of 2.5%.

»www.visacemea.com/uv/exchange_rates.jsp

Based on that you should get $537 ish (if doing it today).

XE gives straight rates if your using their conversion widget. The rate I posted earlier in this thread is the one you get if you do your forex through them.

Ok dudes.....the guy on the phone heard me say USD 550 and not USD 515!!!

That ways, TD North charged me the typical 2% conversion rate.

I was like how the hell can USD 515 show up as CAD 565??!!!

Hah. I know from experience that it is incredibly easy to mix up 15 and 50 on the phone. Can't say it surprises me.

Probably wasn't the first time.....for sure it won't be the last time.....after all, you have a girlfriend who will remind you of that fact periodically too.

Are you a TD customer? Rates are lower if you're transferring money from your home bank.

Re: IGNORE this thread

Sorry, I cannot ignore a post that says ignore - it's a subliminal message and made me look!

I think we should post more and more so that this shows up on the front page.

I go to the Bank of Canada website and look it up there, then add 2.5%

It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?

Best story of the year. Although I'd be piss off too....I had similar things happen to me, so I repeat and they repeat...as in 515 as in five one five...."OH..I thought you said 550!"

I am only here to find out what I should ignore. Apparently this whole thread is useless so at least I learned that I should have paid closer attention to the title thread.
