Paying with Credit Card at the SFX Cinema Pattaya

credit card statement showing exchange rate on movie purchase

Today, We went to the SFX Cinema Pattaya.  The movie theater in Pattaya is quite nice and much better than theaters in the USA.  I charged the entrance fee of 660-baht to my credit card.  This is the receipt from the movie theater showing the charge.

I forgot to write down the exchange rate, so I ran historical rate reviews.  According to the Yahoo rate (which is usually better than we get on the street), my rate was a little low.

Oanda shows the rate was 30.90 on that day!  Which means I did better than their data.

The point is — I still accomplished an excellent rate using my ATM card!
