I'll cut to the chase, . I'm in China with thousands of Yuans but am wanting to take most of it back home to deposit it into my Citi account back in the U.S. The reason i'm asking here where/how to convert the cash is in seeking the lowest possible service charge. I figured at least one soul out there would provide a useful answer. The airports seem to charge quite a bit, with a 12% transaction fee. That'll easily amount to a couple of hundred bucks lost simply to exchange the cash. Nevertheless hope someone knows of a method to utilize. Perhaps Citi will take big red bills with Chairman Mao on them...but in all honesty, i'm sure they prefer Benjamins.
