Two

Back in the day when Matty worked in a bank he let me in on a little secret..
Banks still carry twos!

I totally thought they were extinct!

With a wad of twos in my pocket, I am ready to take Matty out for a fancy night on the town ;)

Oh that's cool! You should keep some though as souvenirs.

Even though I live in the US, I am originally from Australia. Back there they have $2 coins, so I have never seen a $2 bill before - this is my first time!

I knew this! I actually got a few twos a few months ago. I had some snags when trying to spend them, though, because some cashiers think they're fake.

Oh man! When I was in high school and underage, I would cash my paycheck at the bank and get five or six $2 bills to pay for the underage fees at St. Louis concert places. Never had I seen the tough bouncers at Mississippi Nights, the Pageant, and the Bluebird smile like they did when I handed them my $2 minor fee...

My boyfriend gave me one 10 years ago, when I lived in Europe, to my amazement and amusement. I still carry it in my wallet for good luck - and as a souvenir. I haven't seen any other twos since then. I mean, until now :)

$2 bills are great to give to grandkids; throw off tellers and get an extra $2 out of it.

Maybe one should keep a copy for the future.

If you have a Ted's Montana Grill near you, they give you your change in $2 bills if you pay in cash.

My dad always buys two dollar bills to keep in his money clip for tips. He loves handing those out!!

Chris said...

Every time I see $2's I keep them! I've got a little collection of them at home-- probably $30 worth!

Who's on them? I've never seen one before...

There is something about having a toonie that makes one feel so much richer than having a loonie. And that is why I like them. If that makes sense.

I got one yesterday! I haven't seen one in donkey's ages. I'm keeping it.

my dad gave me a stack of 50 $2 bills for christmas in my stocking. it's been fun to spread them around and to see people get frazzled by them, but i almost never have people say they think they are fake. just go to any bank and you can get your own stack and try to make them popular.
