My US Currency Is Worse For Wear: Can I Still Use It?

If you’re given paper money that is torn, dirty, or in any way defaced, you can replace it at any local US bank while on your travels.

Excessively damaged money can be redeemed with the Bureau of Engraving and Printing but you’ll need an American bank account.

Leftover Dollars and Nowhere to Go? What to Do with Your Unused Currency

Coming back from a trip with leftover currency can be a waste of money, especially if it’s a sum not big enough to exchange again.

Here are some ways to dispense with your last few bucks:

  • Many airlines distribute envelopes for you to deposit your remaining currency as a donation to various organisations (for example, Qantas has its Change for Good program with UNICEF).
  • Australian international airports also have collection points where you can deposit your remaining currency as a donation to charity.
  • The Commonwealth Bank of Australia also collects foreign currency and gives every cent to UNICEF.
  • You can change your currency at an exchange office at the airport but keep in mind, you will get terrible exchange rates and fees.
  • For larger amounts, use a money changer in the city to convert your USD back to AUD.
  • Give those greenbacks to a friend heading to the States and make their day!

If you have another trip in the works, consider keeping those USDs. The dollar is almost as widely accepted as an alternative currency in many other countries, even if it isn’t the country’s official currency.

It’s also used as the official legal tender in countries including Panama, El Salvador, Ecuador, East Timor, Palau, and Zimbabwe.
