Why would you use a $2 bill at Walmart? That's a classy bank note. Use it at Target.
Let them fight
@DwayneTheCockJohnson, That would be a funny scene. Tape it and post it and that would mean instant internet fame.
@DwayneTheCockJohnson, I wish you could slap people through the stories that are told about them sometimes
Why not just hold onto it? I'm pretty sure $2 bills are in limited production, so when they're out of print the value will go up dramatically.
@Marida Cruz, yeah once they stopped making them I collected any that I found and now I have a bunch of them. None of them are in that good condition so I don’t how much they’ll ever actually be worth but it’s still neat to have.
@K1l, I believe you can actually go to the bank and get them in good condition.
@Marida Cruz, That's been an urban legend for at least 30 years. $2 bills are worth $2, and they are not gaining any value.
@Jokanu, I swear I've seen several official sources stating it, and I don't imagine it's feasible to keep making them considering the lack of use and decrease in raw materials. Really, regardless of whether they actually will cease production or not, you have to admit that most of the evidence makes it seem like they only have reasons to stop making them.
@Marida Cruz, So it was said to me in the 1970s when I started collecting them, but in 2015, they were still worth $2. You can still get them at a bank, by the stack. With the rate of inflation, if I'd spent them as I acquired them, they would have had more buying power then, than hoping to be worth more in the future.
@Jokanu, well that's the first I've heard of them being available at banks. The only place I've heard anyone get one from before this was at Jefferson's former place of residence, where they only hand out one to each person. I've never seen anyone use one or have one in their wallet, so by all accounts it's completely baffling if the government still makes these. As to whether they're still accepted as currency, that was never in question. Sacogewa silver dollars are still accepted as currency too, but those have been out of production for years and have far greater value when sold to a collector than when used as intended.
@Marida Cruz, I gave my nieces & nephews birthday money in gift cards in $2 bills on & off over the last 5 years. Picked them up from 3 different local banks and they always had them. The current design started production in 1976, and they are still making them.
@Jokanu, good to know. Still seems infeasible, but i guess that's the government's problem to figure out.
@Marida Cruz, I hear they are given out at strip clubs instead of single dollars.
Uncultured folk everywhere
When we changed 20 and 100s to be more colorful, no one had told me and i worked a register. Brought it once to my supervisor and he showed me the new bills and it didn't happen again. The lady took it well when I explained. I have gotten fakes a few times, even ones where the print was scrunched smaller than the size of the bill.
@Dephenistrator, I worked retail and it was store policy to manually inspect all 50s and 100s. I always felt bad whenever I looked over those bills cause it was usually a certain clientele who paid cash for clothes.
Happened at taco Bell for me a few years ago. No cops, but cashier had to bring the manager to see me. The manager looked at the cashier like he was an idiot.
That’s worth more than $2...
i don't see much funny, i just see someone reacting appropriately when given fake money.
@Sweet Baby Jones, lemme just clean this up so i don't look like an asshole.
@Sweet Baby Jones, they probably downvoted you because it's not fake money
@Not him again, ......yeah, that'd probably do it.
Can you use them in vending machines?
It’s weird when I see 1 and 2 dollars as notes
@theprofprofessor, FOUND THE CANADIAN!!!!
