Just an FYI for starbucks drinkers. The exchange rate is extremely poor on a Starbucks card when using it across the border.
We were in the states on the weekend and wanted a frappaccino and since we had a Starbucks card (Canadian), we decided to use that since we didnt' have any USD on us.
They accept the CDN card no problem but when we checked the amount charged, ended up being $1CAD=$0.80USD! Horrible considering our CC was exchanging at around $0.91.
Shame on us for not looking into it/inquiring beforehand.
Just wanted to share the info.
