This is a great opportunity if you have a Tesco 0% purchases credit card.

Normally credit cards class buying currency as a cash withdrawral and charge you maximum intrest but for the next 2 days (ends Friday 21 March 2014 at 8am) you can order foreign bank notes and travellers cheques with your tesco 0% purchases credit card and it will be classed as a purchase. Should get clubcard points too! I have just checked and the rates are the same as the Post Office so they are good competitive rates.

Hope this helps!

There are places offering higher exchange rates: travelmoney.moneysavingexpert.com/ - but good deal if you have a 0% purchases offer and what to spread repayments back.

Also, you'll always get the best rate using a debit/credit card that has no foreign exchange loading fee or foreign ATM fee. I use a Norwich and Peterborough debit card when I go abroad and get the Visa exchange rate, which is almost as high as the interbank rate, with no fees/loadings.

Thanks for the link that's really helpful. The money that would have been used for the foreign currency can be put in a cash ISA and along with the clubcard points, it improves the deal a little I will be putting my money in my stocks and shares ISA but thats another story.

By the way, there are some amazing deals to be had on expedia.com.br at the moment, just search travel deals on HUKD. I just got a great deal for my wife and 2 children ( 5 & 8 ) and myself, return flights to Australia for £1157 thats just £289 each!!

The purchase using a Tesco Credit card, is always treated as a purchase not a cash advance. That's not a 48hr thing. It's a 48hr rate sale.

If I, or you, knew how currency was going to fluctuate, then we would be very rich indeed
