Cash4Coins Currency Exchange Advice – How To Get The Best Currency Deals

At Cash4Coins we offer a currency exchange service that is second to none.  We also like to give you the lowdown on how to exchange currency and get the best deals when you go on holiday or take a business trip abroad.  With a holiday on the horizon, we’re often so excited that we forget to look out for the best deals when it comes to arranging currency exchange.

Forget The Bank And Airport Bureau De Change For Your Currency Exchange

If you usually use the bureau de change services at your local bank or your departure airport, you might be surprised to learn that these services will not give you the best deal.  Why?  Well, exchange rates fluctuate all day every day, but the banks and airports don’t give you access to the live exchange rate.  Instead, they give you access to the rate that was released in the morning and that rate stays the same for the entire day.  Online foreign exchange brokers on the other hand, give you access to exchange rates that are as close as possible to the Interbank live rate.  This is the rate that the banks pay for the currency they buy and it is much more competitive.

Why 0% Commission Is A Myth

Those 0% commission deals you see advertising on the high street are actually not as good a deal as you might first thing.  The companies offering 0% commission for currency exchange need to make a profit somewhere and they do this by offering you an exchange rate that is lower than the rate they purchased the currency for originally.  That is why it is best to consider the exchange rate you are actually getting rather than being blinded by these 0% fee deals.

Compare The Market For All Currency Exchange Transactions

In the same way that you can compare the market for physical goods, you can now do the same for services and currency exchange services are no exception.  Whether you are exchanging Sterling for US Dollars or US Dollars for Euros, this is a great way to find the best deals online.  At Cash4Coins we understand the way the currency exchange market works.  After all, we deal with foreign currency every day.  As a result, we know how doing a little research to find the best rate could mean you are quids or Euros in if you find a good deal.

And Remember Cash4Coins When You Want To Exchange Your Leftover Currency

If you return from your trip with lots of leftover currency, don’t forget that Cash4Coins can help.  We can transfer any foreign currency into Sterling or another currency of your choice and you don’t even need to sort or count it.  Our service is quick and easy and we have many satisfied customers that have used our services to arrange a foreign currency exchange. That leftover currency would only sit around gathering dust once your holiday becomes a distant memory.  Why not turn them into something worthwhile by using our foreign currency exchange service.  We would be delighted to exhange your leftover currency for you.

Making Money For Christmas – Exchanging Foreign Coins And Other Ideas

There are only 9 weeks to go until Christmas.  Sorry, we had to mention it!  Are you ready?  Are you one of those super organised people with mince pies already stockpiled and presents already wrapped? Or are you more likely to be racing around on Christmas Eve looking for last minute gifts?  And how is your money situation?  How are you going to afford Christmas this year?  Well, you could get a little help by exchanging foreign coins.

You might be surprised how much those old discarded and dusty coins could be worth.  Many of our very happy customers  are often shocked when we give them their valuation. They had no idea that their leftover currency could become such a windfall. Exchanging foreign coins is just one way to make money this Christmas and Cash4Coins is the place to do it.

Start A Christmas Club

Okay, well it might be a little late to start or join a Christmas club now, but why not get a head start on Christmas 2014?  Did you know that by putting away just £5 a week you could have enough to cover presents, Christmas dinner and a few festive nights out.  By cutting back on a couple of coffees during the week, taking a little overtime or cashing in your coins with Cash4Coins, you could be quids in next Christmas.

Get Down The Car Booty!

Every Sunday, in the early hours of the morning, thousands of people collect together old clothes, ornaments, second hand toys and other bits and pieces ready to make a killing at car boot sales up and down the country.  As the saying goes “one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure” and that saying is very true when it comes to the traditional car boot sale. You’ll be amazed how much the things you have no use more any more can make in time for Christmas. That early morning alarm call will certainly be worth it!

Exchanging Foreign Coins With Cash4Coins

We mean it when we say we change any foreign currency. Whether you have a fistful of dollars or a handful of French francs, we will be delighted to count and sort them for you.  We will then send you a valuation to consider at your leisure.  Think about what a few pounds could do to make Christmas easier. And if you are planning a foreign holiday, we can change your coins and banknotes into the currency of your choice.  It’s easy to send us your coins and our team is ready to accept them right now. 

Hold A Commission-Based Party

There are many companies offering hostess gifts simply for holding a party at your home. These parties involve selling the company’s products to your friends and family and making commission from the sales you make.  Whilst cash isn’t usually one of the incentives on offer, you might be able to use your commission points to put towards gifts for loved ones.  Pampered Chef, Ann Summers and Avon are just some of the companies offering excellent commission incentives right now.

With Christmas just around the corner, it makes sense to start thinking about raising that extra cash now.  Cash4Coins is a great method of exchanging foreign coins and we can get the money into your bank account very quickly.  Speak to our friendly team today to find out how you can have a festive season full of cheer and less financial worry!




The Great Coin Exchange For Children In Need

Did you know that a foreign coin exchange could be a great way to raise money for Children In Need this year?  At Cash4Coins we offer a coin exchange service that can turn donated foreign coins into Sterling you can use to put towards this great cause.

How To Get Started With Your Foreign Coin Fundraising

You’d be surprised how many people have foreign coins hanging around at home. These are often leftover from business trips abroad and foreign holidays and they end up being stuffed into drawers or put in jars.  Unfortunately, the banks will not help you to exchange these into Sterling, even if the proceeds are for charity.  It is not logistically viable for the banks to change coins and repatriate them back to their country of origin, but we can help!

We have helped many charities to make use of the millions of foreign coins that are gathering dust around the world and we can do the same for you.  We can turn Euros into Sterling, US Dollars into Sterling and in fact, practically any currency you send us into…Sterling!  That’s money we deposit into the bank for you to donate to Children In Need.

A simple collection tin decorated with flags of the world or bank notes of the world is a great way to encourage donations. Most people only have to look in a drawer or jar at home to find coins for you.  And these can mount up very quickly.

Coin Exchange Fundraising Ideas For Schools

If you are a school looking for some great fundraising ideas for Children In Need, we can help.  Why not ask your pupils to ask their parents for foreign coin donations and then set a homework task that gets them thinking about foreign coins and they many different kinds available.  This is a great way to teach children about other cultures and the money used in other countries.  For older kids, why not give them a little lesson in foreign currency exchange!

At Cash4Coins we give you a very convenient method of changing those collected foreign coins into cash.  And if you collect over 10Kg we will send our secure courier to come and pick them up from you free of charge.  We don’t even ask you to count or sort your coins as we do that for you.  It really couldn’t be easier.
