Treasure Trove Foreign Currency Exchange: what do users think?


Cholly E.: Great customer service! He was fast and very knowledgeable about the exchange rates. I will definitely be returning in the future.
Response: Thanks for the kind words, always appreciated.

Jackie Phillips: The gentleman doing the exchange was very polite. I was in and out in less than 10 min. I don't mind paying $5 for safe and reliable service.
Response: Thanks Jackie for the kind words, truly appreciated.

anna saint john: good rate, very convenient, in-and-out service. i cannot believe this is the only place in downtown washington, dc to exchange money with less than a week’s notice!
Response: Thanks for the kind words Anna.

Patrick Whittle: Much better exchange rates than Travelex. They held my currency overnight after I called, and were professional, friendly and accurate when I got there next morning. They are cash-for-cash so hit your ATM ahead of time.

Alex Lemley: Wonderful experience. I came in with a substantial amount of dollars (and a bag of change) needing to be converted into Euros and they helped me immediately. AND while I was waiting even offered to clean my wedding ring set for me. Will be coming back again and referring all my friends. Thank you!

Edwin Muchiri: Efficient Only buy rate listed(how much they buy your foreign currency Biggest negative is $5 fee Yahoo exchange rate was £1=$1.30 They bought my £ @ $1.19 They minted $16 not accounting for money to be made selling my £
Response: Sorry for the two star review Edwin, but if you go on our website it has both the buy and sell rates. If you call me or email me I’ll be glad to give you any rate at any time. As far as the fee is Concerned, my closest competitor charges a $10 exchange fee. My five dollar fee is my commission, everyone has to make a living.

Adam Nothem: Very nice employees but the exchange rate still wasn't great but appears better than all the others. Lost about 10% in the exchange just FYI so you can plan you finances.

Miles Taylor: Blows Travelex out of the water. Way better rates. I came back from Israel and for the same amount of money Travelex offered $425 for the exchange and Treasure Trove offered $467. No brainier. Thanks, y'all!

steve galkin: Had 5 different currencies and there was a fee for each one. Fortunately, they’re rates were good and the gentleman there was very helpful.

Michael: Very friendly and professional. The foreign currency requested was available in 1 day as promised. The three major banks i contacted needed 3 to 5 business days.

Metro Currency Exchange: what do users think?


Steve Ledvina: Easy and convenient. Call before you go to confirm that they have your currency and are open- the nature of the business is that they could run out anytime . I arrived at 10 and buzzed up with no answer. I called and he said he’d be there in 30 minutes. No problem at all, I just exchanged the currencies a couple hours later when I was passing by again. Buzz into the door, enter the door marked 2 for second floor and it’s immediately on your right.

Steve Clark Hall: So glad I found this place. It was open on a saturday and I was able to get the euros I needed at a very competitive rate. Once at the airport, I checked the rates of the currency exchanges and was stunned at the high commissions that others charge. Thanks Mohammed, it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Response: You're welcome Mr Steve, it was pleasure serving you too, enjoy your trip.

Tkfkdfo: Metro Currency Exchange is the best currency exchange business I have encountered thus far in the DC metro area. Mohammed, the manager, is an absolute pleasure to work with in exchanging foreign dollars and coins. I was exchanging currency from USD to WON, and he had the best rates out of all the DC metro area businesses. He went above and beyond in customer service. I cannot believe this business even exists. I was in a hurry from the airport and, he offered to meet me there at a time that was convenient for me. Absolutely unheard of! I cannot recommend him enough. His personality and respect for his customers entails high customer service ratings, which is evidenced here in these other reviews. If you ever need currency exchange, call ahead of time to make sure they have the amount you need. The website has a call number and a text number. I texted him and received a response within 24 hours. I will come here again to exchange currency when I travel. Contact them and see for yourself. You will not regret it!

Katja v. S.: I have been doing business with Metro Currency exchange proprietor Mohammed going back to his days at the Old Post Office in DC. He is the best, most helpful, customer service-oriented professional in a business where clients are often taken advantage of. It's because of Mohammed's expertise that I don't mind making the trip over to Old Town Alexandria at his new location. I am glad I can count on him for my infrequent currency exchange needs. Last week, he even took the time to educate me on the old versus new British Pound plastic bills. A big thank you and five-star recommendation!

Matt Lappat: Better rates than AAA, banks, and other exchange vendors. His flat rate fee and his selling rate are both better. And, the gentleman that runs the operation was very nice. As always, call ahead and make sure he has enough of the currency on hand that you want.

Matthew Veland: I went in last week to exchange maybe 5-6 different currencies. Wonderful and quick service. The man behind the counter was very nice. I told him I had a few coins left over but he told me to exchange them anyways so I made a little extra! 206 buzzes you in and then they're at the end of the hall on the second floor.

Heather Adams: Mohammed has great rates and excellent customer service! He did not have enough paper currency that I wanted for the UK and sold me all of his coins at a discount. Well, this turned out to be ssssooooooo convenient as the public bus transportation there only accepted coins and I had no problems paying for miscellaneous items with the other coins. Thanks a bunch, Mohammed!

Judith Knight: Metro Currency Exchange is very conveniently located at 817 Kings St Alexandria. It’s across from the Greek restaurant, Taverna Cretekou; in a shared secured building where you have to key in the relevant number at the door inorder for the relevant business to let you enter. Once inside it’s up one floor through the door marked 2 and then turn right and go straight down to the end of corridor. It’s a small very efficiently run Bureau de Change with great rates, broad range of currencies always available, and fantastic staff. The last two times I went, Mohammed served me and it was such a pleasure. I travel often and this place is now my number one choice for any currency stuff. Thoroughly recommended.

Adam Christopher: Great service and constantly great rates compatible to other similar currency exchange offices in Washington DC. Staff are friendly and very helpful, didn't charge me fees for my first transaction, I recommend anyone in Northern Virginia to try Metro Currency Exchange.
Response: Thank You Mr Adam, we're glad that you like our service at Metro Currency Exchange, we hope to serve you again.

Maya Arundhati Ghosh Dutta: The gentleman who owns the place is very professional. He stayed beyond his close time of 6pm so that I could make it from DC to exchange rates. He was very patient throughout the process andgave the best rates

Currency Exchange International: what do users think?


Holly Gerberich: So convenient! I love having local currency BEFORE I leave for my trips and these guys make is so easy. Just be sure to do it several days in advance of your departure to give them enough time to get the currency.

Alexander O'Neill: Incredibly helpful. We were running a bit late and called ahead and their team was willing to wait for us. Call ahead to order currencies other than those listed in the photos — we order Icelandic Kronurs in advance
Response: Hello Alexander, Thank you for choosing CXI and for your feedback! We truly do strive to meet our customers’ needs, and we are pleased to know that you enjoyed your experience. We appreciate your business and will be looking forward to servicing your foreign currency needs again in the near future. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Amber Trueblood: Apparently regularly opens half hour or more late. Call corporate and they don't care just tell you to wait. Person waiting with us said they travel all the time and this location never opens on time. Once you factor in wait time airport fees are more affordable.
Response: Hello Amber, Thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize for the unsatisfactory visit you had at our branch. When we are having delays opening the branch, we do our best to properly communicate with our team to avoid confusion. I can assure you that this issue has been resolved, and we are committed to our current hours of operation. We appreciate you considering us for your travel needs and hope to be able to make things right in the future. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Patrick Coggins: Don't waste your time. Change your money when you get abroad. They added up the fees and it was going to cost me over 18 percent markup to purchase 200 Euro. I can wait.
Response: Hello Patrick, I would like to first thank you for choosing CXI and for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with our rates. We would like to clarify that we do in fact have a Best Rate Guarantee, in which we will match a better rate at any local bank or airport. In order for us to match a rate, we will need the name of the bank or airport, so we can confirm the rate. Once the rate has been confirmed, we will be happy to rate the match for you. For more information about our guarantee, please visit: http://www.ceifx.com/page/learnforeigncurrencyexchange#BestRate. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Alan Weisman: Easy to make an appointment to reserve funds. Very good customer service.
Response: Hello Alan, Thank you for choosing CXI and for your feedback! We truly do strive to meet our customers’ needs, and we are pleased to know that you enjoyed your experience. We appreciate your business and will be looking forward to servicing your foreign currency needs again in the near future. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Keisha Harris: I placed an order online and picked up at the kiosk. Very easy and straightforward.

Kathy Penn: Positive: ProfessionalismFirst visit, was told there was none of the currency I needed, but she wrote down my information and what I needed. I was notified when the currency was available. No problems getting it. Friendly service and coupon on the web site if you sign up for emails.

Chris Boston: This is a very professional exchange, with some of the best rates I've seen in a while - far better than anything you'll get at an airport. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the pricing is very transparent. They'll also waive the exchange fee if you bring your unspent bills back with your receipt! Highly recommend this location instead of any airport.

Temi Kasali: Very rude and saucy manager they charged me $5 for the exchange rate customer service is zero it all about the money they want to make from you. If you want to be treated like a criminal for currency exchange you can come here better still just go into your bank to order for your foreign currency
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with the service you received. We would like to clarify that we do offer an online coupon for 50% off the standard exchange fee and we offer a Best Rate Match guarantee in which we can match our rates with any bank or airport. It was also never our intention to make you feel like a criminal. As a foreign currency provider, there are certain standard procedures that may be interpreted as offensive, though not intended, such as verifying the authenticity of the currency that any customer is exchanging. Similar to a bank, we are responsible and federally mandated to ensure that all currency coming in or going out is valid. We truly apologize for this experience and hope that we can have the opportunity to better service you in the future.

Doug Hase: They were great! I called the day before to check on availability and they said they didn't have enough on hand but took my name and asked I call back the next day to confirm they had it. I was also told that it probably worked out better as the exchange rate usually goes down on Monday.

Currency Exchange International: what do users think?


P J: I called twice at 5 PM on Thursday to see if they had the currency I needed in stock and they did not answer the phone. I took my chances and went to the mall anyway. I arrived at the kiosk at 6:20 PM and no one was there. I saw there was a small backpack on the chair so I figured the attendant went to the bathroom, so I stayed around for another ten minutes. No one ever showed up. Whoever left the desk didn't update the clock saying when they'd be back. I popped into a few stores to kill time and they still weren't there by 6:45. Considering this is the only reputable place that popped up when I googled currency exchange in my area, I would expect more consistent customer service. If it's by appointment only, then please put that on your website.
Response: Hi PJ, We apologize for your experience at this location. We have corrected this issue and are now able to offer more consistent hours and staff returning when they are due back. You should not experience this issue again if you visit us for future needs. We would like to offer 50% off your next transaction where applicable. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Subbir Khondhaker: I have used this currency exchange outlet for the longest time; however, I visited the location today and had the worst experience. Their business hours ends at 7pm on Saturdays. I arrived at the location at 6:45pm and the guy was working in the booth said he already closed the safe and it won’t be open until tomorrow which is wrong information because I have made transactions at the last minute many times. The attitude and expression he had was “I don’t care about your business.” He kept on shrugging his shoulder saying “nothing can be done, come back tomorrow.” My recommendation would be if you can avoid this location to avoid bad experience.
Response: Hi Subbir, I am very sorry to hear about your experience at Tysons Corner. We were currently still open for business so you should have been taken care of. I can assure you that this will not happen again in the future, as we do not tolerate this level of service. We would like to extend 50% off your fee on your next visit.

Erich Reimer: They're located right in the middle of the hall on the second floor of Tyson's Corner Center. Their rates sometimes aren't too bad to the level of gouging and sometimes are actually mildly competitive. Sometimes, as expected for a mall currency exchange stand, they are a bit rough but not the worst I've seen. They really are for if you quickly need some foreign currency and don't have the time to get an order mailed-in at your deposit banking institution.

Hamid Isber: Found this place on Google maps. Even though it's inconveniently located inside a large mall (for someone who is not shopping) we still went there to exchange some currency. When we finally reached the place at 1:50pm there was only one employee and she seemed to be unpacking some food. She looked disappointed to see customers approaching and greeted us by saying "I'm sorry, I'm taking my lunch break now". We said we came inside the mall just for this and it should be a really quick transaction- not more than 2 minutes, but she said she had to eat and asked us to return at 2:20pm . When we returned at 2:30pm, after doing nothing but walking in the order to kill the 30 minutes, we found a couple of customers in the line, and things were not moving quickly. As we could not afford to waste any more time, we left and went to our local bank, only to find out that everything turned to our advantage because the exchange rate at the bank was much better, and the people were welcoming and seemed to want our business.
Response: I would like to first thank you for choosing CXI and for taking the time to give us your feedback. Our goal is to ensure every customer comes away with the best foreign currency exchange experience possible when dealing with CXI and we apologize this was not the case when you visited our branch. At the time of your visit, the teller was taking a lunch break and when you came back there was a new teller training that made the exchange process slower than normal. We would also like to clarify that we do have a Best Rate Guarantee in which we will match a better rate at any local bank or airport. In order for us to match a rate we will need the name of the bank or airport so we can confirm the rate. Once the rate has been confirmed we will be happy to rate match for you. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we hope you will consider CXI in the future for your foreign currency needs. CXI Team

Sanjay Srikantiah: Critical: Professionalism, QualityCashier spoke through microphone which could heard by everyone in the Tysons Mall. Very poor customer service. Don’t go here.
Response: Hi Sanjay, Since there are barriers in place and a mask being worn by staff and most clients, we must use the microphone in place to communicate. Unfortunately, without the microphone, you would be unable to hear the teller and properly confirm your request. At your request the microphone volume can be turned down, however with it off the transaction would likely be botched. On your next visit, please be sure to request the volume to be adjusted to your liking. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Kristin K: I've exchanged $$ here numerous times & have never had a bad experience. The exchange rate is the most competitive I've found in the area. I always call before hand to ensure currency on hand....the first time coming here, she was waiting on a delivery to cover what I needed, grabbed some dinner to kill the time, learned my lesson to call in advance.

Amy Stein: I needed to exchange Pounds for US Dollars. The exchange rate was extremely reasonable along with a very low service charge. The service was quick and efficient. It was much easier than dealing with my bank and the exchange rate was fair better than I would have been able to obtain at the airport.

Edwin Muchiri: Extremely professional agent,I have been to the Bethesda location too and employee there was efficient too. There was a $5 fee @ tyson's corner but a $3 fee @ bethesda in my previous transaction[which is closed temporarily] I appreciate Tyson's Corner location being open today CXI Buy rate was £1=1.1267 Today's exchange was £1=$1.24 The rate or fee didn't deter me.I figure forewarned is forearmed. I am a repeat customer...once bitten never shy

Tom Brandner: Matt and Alexus at the Tyson Corners location were very helpful today with my traction. Great customer service and will work with you for all your foreign exchange needs. I called Alexus on Tuesday and ordered Israeli Shekels and Jordanian dollars for a trip we are taking in a few days. They had my exchange ready by Thursday afternoon!

Paul Rose: Located at the far end (opposite from Bloomingdales) of Tysons One Mall this booth on the upper level has knowledgeable personnel and a trove of foreign funds with clearly posted exchange rates. They say they will order currencies that are currently not available at that location or more currency that they usually have on hand but are temporarily out of or short of (allow appropriate time). Also, they state that if you keep your receipt they will buy back any remaining funds you care to sell to them without an exchange fee.

Meg Earsley: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueGreat experience! I called ahead and they were able to have my bolivianos ready and waiting for me at a fair exchange rate and super low processing fee. It requires being out of the airport but the reviews for the airport exchanges were just too scary!
Response: Hello Meg, Thank you for choosing CXI and for your feedback! We truly do strive to meet our customers’ needs, and we are pleased to know that you enjoyed your experience. We appreciate your business and will be looking forward to servicing your foreign currency needs again in the near future. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Peter Bistransin: Poor communication concerning fees and most not going to CXI. They could of written instructions on the web site that told me about the 3% credit card fee most retailers do not charge that fee. They could of told me about the cash advance fee. Both fees cost me over $50. Sad thing is I had the cash in the bank to cover the purchase. The girl at the booth only informed me of the visa fee just before the transaction without giving me other options. Nothing mentioned about a cash advance fee. The fees CXI charges are reasonable but with the visa and bank fees it made exchange expensive. THE RESPONSE BELOW IS WRONG! YOU DID CHARGE MY ACCOUNT AS A CASH ADVANCE WITHOUT TELLING ME. AND NOW YOU ARE NOT TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT IT IN YOUR GOOGLE RESPONSE. MY BANK WAS ISSUING ME A DAILY CHARGE FOR THE CASH ADVANCE.
Response: Hello Peter, I would like to first thank you for choosing CXI and for taking the time to give us your feedback. We do not charge any credit cards as a cash advance. The cash advance was charged through your credit card provider and is at their sole discretion to do such per their policies. The information about credit card charges is also located on our website in the about section on the Arundel Mills Mall page. Unfortunately, we have no control over the banks processes when using credit cards. Please reach out to the branch, and we could try to speak with the bank on your behalf to reduce your cash advance fees. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Belinda T: Don’t bother ordering your money here as it never turns up! Rang and asked how long currency will take to arrive and advised it will arrive if ordered before 2pm in 24 hours. Rang 2 days later and was told it’s on its way. Rang on day 5 advised they don’t know when it will arrive, day 6 still no money so too late had to leave. Customer service was aweful over the phone
Response: Hello Belinda, We apologize that your currency did not arrive on time. Orders typically take 24-72 hours during the weekday, however our carrier experienced severe delays which are beyond our control. We did our best in keeping you updated with information as it came to us. We again apologize that your currency did not arrive on time to be of any use to you. If ever you need to order a currency that is not readily available, we will extend to you no service fee. Do keep in mind, we are subject to delays beyond our control that could take up to a week. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Kori Jess: Super easy! I did reserve online for euros ahead of time but I didn’t need to, they had them on hand. They were ready, no line and fast service and the fee was super super cheap!
Response: Hello Kori, Thank you for choosing CXI and for your feedback! We truly do strive to meet our customers’ needs, and we are pleased to know that you enjoyed your experience. We appreciate your business and will be looking forward to servicing your foreign currency needs again in the near future. Happy Travels, CXI Team

george mays: Jada J. is the Supreme CX employee. She is awesome & thorough @ customer service. Upon entering her job site she totally disinfected the area before serving customers. Her appearance is a very work ethic with company shirt, her own natural beauty, that varies day to day in her own creativity, that's not overbearing with cosmetics or jewelry. She is very clear & proper in communicating with customer courtesy in answering questions or generally speaking. The business transaction is flawless in her job requirements & in customer satisfaction. My 1st experience with Jada was so great that it led me to come back & even though I came & was served by a another employee, he was doing a job, with her it's more of a total experience. I look to come back their for my transitions just in the way she does her job. I appreciate those who take pride & honor in being the job than just doing it! Thank you Jada J. for being more than.

fred maccormack: This is not my first experience with CXI and their very professional, customer oriented service. I have used them for previous overseas trips to various countries and each time they have been able to quickly accommodate my needs. In this instance both Jada and Wally were able to assist both my wife and I as we plan our next trip and needed foreign currency quickly. Jada took our initial call she was polite, friendly and very helpful and was able to quote a great rate and time when we could pick it up. When we arrived the funds were not on site yet. Wally, who was on duty informed us of the issue and offered several alternatives if we did not want to wait. We told him we would return later. However, it was Wally who took the initiative to call us when the funds were available earlier than expected. Just super impressed with the staff and their professionalism and great customer service. Fred M

Yvonne: Ordering Mexican Pesos was easy at the Arundel Mills Currency Exchange. The money was ready within 3 - 4 days. We got a better deal that the currency exchange at the airport. Once in Mexico, we found out that our hotel's currency exchange, was lower by one peso. At other places in Mexico, the difference was lower by two pesos or by twenty centavos. I was told at the Currency Exchange, that if I had any leftover pesos, they would buy them from us. We will totally use them in the future.

Lisa Rae Brooks: They were incredibly upfront and open about their inventory, which made it very easy for me to schedule my trip there, as I live 30 miles away. They also explained company policies. I was very pleased with the entire transaction.

Gayle Lomax: Critical: ResponsivenessGiven this is the only currency exchange near Baltimore you would think they would be more sensitive to the fact people have to drive long distances to get here. I made sure to arrive during business hours, but got here to see a sign saying we're closed. Come back during normal business hours. Complete waste of a 40 minute drive.
Response: Hello Gayle, We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. This location’s hours can be different from normal mall operating hours. Our staff is granted a 30 minute lunch break which was likely happening when you arrived. We are more than happy to offer you 50% off your transaction fee on your next exchange. To have the quickest service, it can be helpful to call ahead. We do not mind waiting to take a break since we do not want to miss anyone who has traveled a distance to exchange with us.

Joe Loll: This place is a SCAM!!! The exchange rate they use is completely different from the actual exchange rate. They shorted me $8!!! I will not be using their services again.
Response: Good afternoon Mr.Loll, We are sorry you did not have an exchange that met your expectation. The exchange rate we charge is different from the indication rate which is publicly posted online. The indication rate is not used at any exchange establishments and is for indication purposes only. We do have a best rate guarantee and are comparable to other local like businesses. We would like to extend a 50% off exchange fee on your next service if you visit with us again. We can also guarantee a great rate at any point in exchange. Thank you for your business.

John Tarver: Great place for currency exchange, Ask for Sue. I have been ordering cash from them for years now (MX Peso, COP, GBP, Euros,Rupees, etc.) every transaction has been perfect. Much better rates than in airports, hotels in most 2nd and 3rd world countries. Thanks for all the help Sue!

želva: Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness, Valueordered euro's online and picked up next day. fast & friendly service, all fee's are posted so you can find them easily. *much* cheaper than exchanging money in the country your are heading too (at least in my case, yours may differ)10/10 would use again!
Response: Glad you were able to use our OnlineFX to reserve your currency! We love hearing the feedback. Enjoy your trip and Happy Travels!

Nabi Bakhsh: Critical: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueWorst service. The lady treats you like your a homeless and asking for free money. If you want to exchange money, go to your bank, their rate is better, and they treat you professionally.
Response: Hi Nabi, We apologize you experienced a less than positive interaction with the teller. It is our priority to make all customers feel valued before, during, and after exchanging with us. We do have a Best Rate Guarantee where we are able to match any local bank if they have a better rate and are more than happy to do so. In the event you would like to work with us in the future, please accept a 50% off your transaction fee.

Carlos Estrada: I went to exchange some Russian and Vietnamese money that I had from work trips I took earlier this year. I was assisted by a very nice young lady who took care of me right away. The exchange was done really smoothly and I didnt have to give too much of my information which made it even quicker ( I hate slow service). The location was easy to spot and I had an overall positive experience. Will most definitely bring my business back to them next time I need money exchanged.

Luis Melendez: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueSue went above and beyond the call of duty.... the very reason I come to you guys!!!! I love you guys!!!!

Aaron Fieldman: Just got back from the exchange at potomac mills, had some euros left over from my trip to Germany. Took it to my bank first but found out they had some expensive rates and fees for a few Euros. Anyways, found this place online -- they had pretty good rates compared to the banks.

Luce Duv: I was hesitant to come here at first since my bank had better rates, but they were able to match my bank and do the exchange immediately! The only disappointment was that they couldn't buy back my Euro coins.

Xavier Xavier: Critical: ValueDunno this place felt like a rip off, they short hand you on what they can offer you and on top of it they charge an additional fee. It will be nice if they told you of these fees prior to completing the transaction.

International Currency Exchange: what do users think?


Paz Reed: You will lose approximately 20% or more of your currency value. At first I thought it was a personal scam against me, but as I was asking the clerk, Ms. M. Mansorian, why the exchange fee was so high when she kept saying there was NO exchange fee, a couple came and asked how many euros they could buy with $500 USD, and the clerk looked them dead in their face and said '352 Euros'. 🤦🏻‍♀️ That couple couldn't get away from that booth fast enough. Please don't take it personally as the point of this currency-exchange establishment is simply to make as much money off of you as possible. If you have the time, research big banks like Bank of America or TD as they reportedly offer currency exchange.

Marc: WOW. I knew the rate would be bad, but I took a 24% haircut from the day's actual rate for USD/CAD. Completely insane. Good thing it was only a few hundred $$$.

Emmanuel Dinnat: Sketchy place. There is a fixed fee to exchange and supposedly nothing more to pay. Except that their exchange rate is not really a fair market value by a long shot. There are 2 different fixed fees depending on if your are buying or selling the foreign currency. I think my fee was about $8 for selling, which I thought was ok for about $200 worth of currency. According to rates that I had just checked online, I should have gotten around $197 from them (accounting for the fee). They were going to give me about $20 less than that. When I asked why, I was told that there are actually 2 exchange rates, one for selling and one for buying, and I was looking at the wrong one. While I believe this is probably true to some extent, that sounded somewhat suspicious that such a large difference would exist. I took back my foreign currency and thanked them ( for nothing?). A few days later I got about $195 from my bank, no additional fee or any hidden cost, just the quoted rate that was a just little bit below market. Short version: don't use them!

Rachael Thomas: Critical: Professionalism, Quality, ValueIf there was an option to give zero stars I would. This is a complete scam. PLEASE go anywhere else. Their customer service is also terrible.

Matthew: Critical: ValueStay away. I got scammed. Exchanged 350 worth of currency and got 250

Kailash Mota: A must visit place, if you happen to tour / visit Washington DC. The admission is absolutely free, though you have to take a free ticket. The tour of this place takes about 30 minutes. Except in the reception / entrance area, photography is banned. The Souvenir stores has some memorable items that you can carry for your memories. Its a guided tour and guides explain the entire currency printing process in detail while you actually get to see the currencies being printed. All in all a must visit place while touring this region

Jack Chambless: Took my sons here years ago and it was an extremely educational and exciting experience. They were amazed by all they learned and we loved how well run and thoughful this place was.

Danny Coonradt: Situated next to the Holocaust memorial, it's a good idea to do these in tandem if you have the time. The wait for the stand-by tour was fairly reasonable (15 minute wait at noon 9/21/17). Even though the security was less than pleasant, the process moved fairly quickly. Overall, the tour felt intriguing, yet underwhelming. Walkways were small and a bit claustrophobic, lending itself to an "unimmersive" mood. As for the printing itself, the rooms are fairly small and contained, but were actually very interesting for the short time we observed them. It's worthwhile for informative how-do-they-do-it questions, but didn't have a massive all-around appeal as I expected. Also, the lack of photography (for security reasons), makes it less memorable if you're into taking pictures. No cameras is a big thing there.

Terry Trent: After the several visits to DC over the years, I never stopped to visit this spot until this visit. Very nice to visit. Could only see the outside.

Kristie Pecka: Fun tour to see the making of printed bills. Tour with a guide, no head sets as described in previous reviews. Short and sweet... 30 min. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Lei Wang: Free admission but you need to pick up tickets behind the building in 15th St. basically to book your free tour. The tour is very informative and useful.

Diego Villatoro: It was a good experience and it was very interesting

Gail Neeley: This was the most disappointing tour I had while in DC. You have to go through so much security because you observe money being printed, but in reality it would be like touring any other printing shop. The interaction between the tour guide and the tour is poor. You line up on a catwalk to see the process and the tour guide talks over a loud speaker. It would have been much more interesting if they would have spend some time on the engraving process, perhaps with invitations or stamps.

Allanah: Flat 30 min tour with guy reading from cue cards in a monotone way. Philadelphia's mint is much better. Free tickets available. I went in August and got tickets for 9h15a.m. tour. When I left at 9:45, people were able to get tickets for the 10am tour. In not sure about the rush to go early. Go through security about 15 minutes before tour, explore the gallery and boutique before going to start the tour. The tour is stopping in front of four windows. Done in 30 minutes. All you see are large printers. Not worth the time.

Wynde Sprinkle: No where on their web site does it say it is closed. Very disappointed! Please update your website.

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission: what do users think?


Brian Pratt: Corrupt. The American people have lost faith in our markets and those who are supposed to help regulate. Gary Gensler is a Goldman phony. Works for the banks and Hedgefunds not Main St. Spineless, pathetic organization that is responsible for allowing trillions of dollars to be stolen from the American Public though Dark Pool and Naked Shorting.

William Lolli: When an agency of government tasked by the People and the Rule of Law to protect the investing Public violates the public trust by abandoning standards of clarity for policies of enforcement, secret meetings, and nod-winking innuendos which deliberately result in markets and technologies being manipulated to the personal benefit of current and former agency leadership, the agency has lost all public trust and itself should be in danger of collapse by the weight of its own corruption. -- Such is the case of the SEC. A failed agency, failing in its mission, boasting of its moral superiority, aiding in the establishment of market monopolies and crushing innovation.

W R: This place is rather corrupt. They told me I need $25,000 to place multiple trades in a day for my own "protection." Then also let brokers who were about to go bankrupt from a liquidity crisis to disable my ability to exchange on the stock market.

Luis G.: Is possible to give 0 stars? The American people need you and your organization is turning your back on us. When history looks back on the 2020’s they will remember how the SEC left it’s countries people stranded and suffering shortly after a pandemic wiped out many of their businesses and jobs.

Jeremy Kintz: Seems kinda worthless. Only protect Wall St while ignoring Main St. They say they work for our protection. If you can play the lottery, join the military for legal murder, and buy as much alcohol as you want, then you should be able to trade your money as you see fit.

Gustavo H. Galvanini-Boldrini: Spot etf!! 50 major countries have it, including Canada, Brazil and Germany. We want a crypto spot ETF. Why are you delaying the innevitable? Bulgaria, Japan... How long more, & why? It's 2022 Gary, and you know blockchain is the future. Thanks.

Michael Andrews: SEC should be embarrassed for not taking action to make markets fair, casinos are better regulated than wallstreet. We need same day settlements, end all dark pools they are being abused and not used for their intended purposes. How do you let a broker stop buying but not selling. Please SEC get it together.

CH K: Staff attorneys are also great law school professors!

Sonny Bara: Failed to protect the retail investor. That’s literally their #1 job!!! They help hedge funds rob money from the people they are supposed to protect.

Ad1eUK: Corruption runs rife, they offer no protection to the retail public. Gary Gensler has let everyone down and will remembered for such!

Cynthia Merrill: Positive: ProfessionalismOrdered euros on line. Received notice the next day letting me know I could pick them up. I was even able to get some 1 and 2 euro coins. Lady working there was very pleasant. However, I do wish the pickup location was in Virginia Beach rather than at the Norfolk mall.

Russell Neesom: Didn't open as they had no staff.....
Response: Hello Russell, I would like to thank you for choosing CXI and for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are very sorry to hear you were disappointed with our branch. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. For more efficient service, please try to contact the branch prior to coming for the most up-to-date hours. We would like to offer a 50% off-exchange fee on your next service if you visit with us again. We hope you give us the opportunity to provide any currency exchange services you may need in the future. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Amber Isabella: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueSpoke with a woman named Katherine who was knowledgeable, swift, and able to answer questions in a way I could understand. This was my first time using any kind of currency exchange, and if I'm ever in the area again, I will absolutely be returning.

Tim Marsh: Nothing but impressed. Very friendly staff. Fair exchange rate, flat exchange fee. I e-mailed asking for the current exchange rate and within 10 minutes the manager had responded. I requested small bills (EURO's) and CXI was happy to accommodate.

Ann Maliniak: I wish the rate had been better, but it was convenient. I had a small issue with my transaction, but I contacted the company manager and she took care of the issue to my satisfaction. I appreciated her concern and it made a difference.

DeAnna Moreland: Tiffany was so helpful and very nice. She explained the process and made my daughter feel comfortable. Glad we went there for ok ur currency exchange.

roger moore: I use currency exchange international a few times a year. It is undoubtably the best place in hampton roads. The rates are very competitive and considering that most banks dont take foreign currencies and the airport is a rip off, there really is no other option.

Sarah Tip: Horribly staffed. Rude lady. They apparently don’t accept coins. It’d have been nice if I hat was published somewhere other than right at the front. Thanks for nothing
Response: Hello Sarah, We have great news! Starting August 2019, we are now able to exchange 2 pound and euro coins. The full list of coins we exchange is: 1 & 2 EUR, 1 & 2 CAD, 1 & 2 GBP, 10 & 20 MXN. No other foreign coins are exchanged. Anything outside of these coins, we still recommend donating them to the UNICEF Change For Good program. (http://www.unicefusa.org/supporters/organizations/businesses/partners/aa/change-good) We hope this helps many travelers such as yourself as its very difficult to find places to exchange these coins once back in the US. Happy Travels, CXI Team

Jeffery Day: Unable to exchange currency I have.
Response: Hello Jeffery, Similar to other FX businesses, we can only accept bills that are still in circulation. Bills not currently in circulation are not considered legal tender by the government, therefore we cannot accept them. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you need any future rates, feel free to reach out to us! Happy Travels, CXI Team
