Whilst I am big time user of credit cards, I have not lost the childish facination of the “Greenback”. Nothing makes me feel more “powerful” then when I have a thick wad of dollars in my pockets. Obviously, it is 20 singles wrapped by a mere $100 bill 🙂
I travel to the US on holiday at least once a year, and back in Stockholm I have a routine of emptying my spare SEK coins in a little piggy bank. Once a year, I take it to the one SEB I know that has automatic coin machine. Normally, it sums up to roughly $300 which I proudly exchange at SEB Arlanda. By the way, I only have one simple savings account at SEB for this annual transaction.
Yes, I know it is a bit weird 🙂
