    American currency

    Has anyone encountered any problems with American currency being accepted? A few years ago I encountered a bit of difficulty with some of the older twenties being accepted.

    We've never had any issues even when paying with fifties or hundreds. I had concerns that larger bills might not be accepted but it never happened.

    Never had an issue. A few years ago, some establishments had signs stating they wouldn't accept anything bigger than a $20. I take mostly bigger bills and "break" them at casinos.

    Never a problem here either. Someone may look a little closer at an older bill since they are not as used to seeing them anymore, but I encounter that here in the states too!
