Tonight (Valentine’s Day, btw) was dinner at the HardRock Hotel “All You Can Eat Seafood Buffet” where I tend to over-indulge in Lobster! I told the story before on this site where we argued for a half-hour about the HardRock’s use of DCC. Since that evening a long time ago, we NEVER have any problems the the cashiers! So in my mind, our unwillingness to back down has forced the management to teach their cashiers the way DCC is supposed to be used.
Dinner, as you can see, was $67.61USD, providing me with an exchange rate of 32.55 baht/USD.
On the beach, the best exchange rate was 32.48 baht/USD.
Yahoo shows the rate for the day was 32.62 baht/USD — only 7 points above the rate I received using my credit card!
