Do banks do this? Might be your best bet if you have an international bank.

Banks give you the best rates (local) but if you have an Amex platinum (not sure if gold does as well) they don't charge you at all.

My Ride: is totaled
I went to a place called foreigncurrencyexpress.com in downtown LA
It was just two blocks away from where I am working so I didn't need to drive or pay for parking
Had good yelp reviews as having the best rates locally
I emailed and got a rate
The guy at the counter gave me a slightly worse rate but I showed him the email and he used the better rate

So the spot rate would have been $1000 cad = $896.48us
Bank of America would have given me $849.60
I got $870.62 at the place I went to
So not too bad

I still have $4000 in cad
Trying to see if anyone is traveling to Canada or want to give money to their in-laws/relatives in Canada so I can lose less of the money
