USA resources for exchanging Chilean Pesos

Post by GaVdm7 » Thu Jun 08, 2017 12:33 pm

I have some leftover Chilean Pesos from my travels there, that I would like to exchange for US $$$. Unfortunately the exchanges in my area (Tampa, FL) are not interested in buying my Pesos, because they feel their broker won't buy the notes from them. I believe the notes are still in circulation (it would help if you know of a web resource or URL where I could verify that).

If you know of a bank or other exchange/resource that will buy them, and/or know of a place where I can verify that the currency is still in circulation, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks much!

Regards,
Arnold (Ga).

Quite a bit of Chileans in south Florida. Not to mention many flights to SCL every day. Locate restaurants where the chilenos gather when homesick for Chilean food and you will find an eager trading partner.

I'd think you could go to a local international airport and exchange there. That's the status quo...people fly in from wherever and exchange their local currency for US currency. I doubt the airport desks would turn you down.

Is it a ton of CLP?
