Squid, I told you not to keep talking about when you crashed the TD Canada Trust golf tournament and stole half the door prizes... The cops are going to be after you!
I thought by giving you a chapters gift card and a stainless steel water bottle you weren't going to bring that up ;D

I got a free coffee at my branch once about a year ago. The cup had a tiny hole in the side and the coffee tasted like iron. It was awesome  ;)

And I always thought that they just gave me stuff so I would get out of the bank and stop bothering them ???

It pretty much means the same, come get your free cake (so you'll be busy eating and not bother them) By the time your done eating you remember something else you gotta do and you leave the branch. :P

The real cost is the $40-$50 +  a few glasses of wine for the gorgeous cage gal you are taking out.

From there on, it is free sailing.



okay guys you know I am kidding. Barry White is playing on the radio, so that kind of comment was truly inspired.

I think the bottom line here is not how much it costs you because if you are addicted to brick searching it won't really matter.  The real obstacle is whether or not your bank is willing to do the paper work involved. For instance, this was my last visit with the bank manager....

I usually get new bills to separate at work for our float.  They are in bundles, not bricks, but I have found quite a few radars, inserts, etc.  Not sure why, but they only ever give us new $5 and $10s... the people I work with think I'm crazy when I'm searching carefully through them, but it pays off for me!

Being honest got me the brick hassle free and hopefully will help me keep a connection at the bank.

Well that was short lived  Here's what happened with my first experiences brick searching.

The first brick my bank gave me was 10 bundles of really, really, circulated bills (no charge). I found a 4 digit radar, two birthday notes and 6 or 7 shoulder notes so it was a fun experience, but nothing was in good condition.

The second time I ordered a brick I got 2 brand new bundles - $1000, not 1000 bills, and I found nothing. Not such a fun experience, especially after the anticipation built up over a few days of waiting.

I placed another order yesterday and today the bank manager called me to say it would be the last time they'd order me any new cash. She said the cost of security dropping off and picking up the bills was too high for the branch to be able to make this a regular thing

Let's see if I get a real, new brick on monday. I really, really want one but my prospects don't look good...

I think these are called shoulder notes -

AOL 0254024
APA 0134012

I misnamed the others, they're more like 'close but not close enough'

APJ 0980983
AOZ 8616161
AOP 5881881
AOW 2402405

I also found an almost rotator

AOR 9600696

The actual radar I found

AOW 9413149  :D
