You should be able to. Though I'd have to ask what you're doing with a US cheque.

i think the bank would charge you commision and it would be at their 'buy' exchange rate.

I tried to put a cheque for $4 into my Nationwide account and they wouldn't let me... I would have had to pay £6 as their minimum commission amount and obviously it wasn't worth it, I'd be giving the bank more than the cheque was worth. They said if I got more cheques in dollars and put them in the account at the same time it'd probably be worth it. I still have the cheque :rolleyes:

That's a pretty good deal. That means that in a bit more than a week you'll make $100, well if you keep on going like this!

Perhaps if Ollie were to put it in a thread everyday, there would be enough people to click on it out of curiosity, or just as of being reminded to bring in a bit more.

Try using the company http://www.auctionpix.co.uk -- they change US$ cheques more cheaply than banks.

I've cashed cheques in at my bank (from Google ). They do charge about £6 commission, but unlike a normal cheque you get the cash straight away - no 3-5 day clearing like normal. Also watch out for the exchange rate. The high exchange rate at the moment isn't good when you want to change dollars -> pounds.

One other point - if you’re going to be cashing a lot of these cheques in (like I am at the moment) then your bank may get you to sign a special statement. Trying to remember what it was about now, but it was something to do with authorizing them to deal with the foreign currency cheques on my behalf. I also have to sign the back of every cheque I get.

Anyway I hope that helped
