Re: Money Changing & Acquisition

Speaking of cards and things, the US is switching over to embedded-chip credit cards with incentive to convert before October 2015. And folks looking to go overseas now should be aware that some merchants overseas already will not take our magstripe cards, so you may want to ask your bank or cc company for a new chip card before you go.

Re: Money Changing & Acquisition

When I saw the title of the thread I thought someone had thought of loansharking to make money while cruising, moneychangers and all. Who knows? It might work, India style micro lending!
The point about chip cards is well taken. I will be getting at least one soon.
