Hi

I have £100 in tens and twenties. If I take this to my bank will they give me the same amount in fivers if I ask?

Anywhere else I can get this?

Not if you walk in off the street they won't. You'll need to pay it in and withdraw it again so they have an audit trail. They won't just give notes out of their till without a transaction.

I would guess they would yeah. You'll have to go to the actual desk and explain, just say you've drawn it out of your account and want it in fives.

Read my post again. It's a common myth that banks just change money with no transaction involved. It just isn't the case anymore. Cashiers often get till errors so get told not to do this. It also leaves the bank open to getting fake notes with no record of who gave them in. When I worked in a branch our head office always told us this is a no no. If a customer wanted to change notes it goes in the account and out again. It would never be done for non customers under any circumstances.

Why not!

Good luck.I have been watching £5 notes go on ebay and most people arnt stupid enough to buy them or bud. Seen so many get cancelled/withdrawn as they dont reach there value.

Mate I need the fivers for work, it makes it easier for me to handle cash payments that's all.

Previously would get a local chippy to do me a swap, since new owners place isn't too keen. Worked in their favour end of day too

Your local post office?

In that case, I would just deposit into bank,instantly credits them.Withdraw threw teller if there is one. My branch you can deposit into machine and it counts it and automatically goes into account.. Then go to teller and ask for whatever you need in £5 notes, if they query witch I'm sure they won't, just say it's for work as you have a phobia of well used notes.

I Bank at Barclays and when I withdraw cash I get the option to choose what notes I would like ie £5 notes if need be.. I'm sure every modern bank will be offering this service ?

I bank with Barclays and I often ask them for my money in £5 notes and also bags of 50ps. They don't mind how they give you it. If you pay it into your account and withdraw it again ask for it in whatever donomination you want. They give you it however you want it no questions asked
