For what, ATM abroad or Non TD? How do you know this, their reps are not aware of this.

Rather, you hate having to pay for someone safekeeping YOUR money and delivering it to you almost anywhere in the world at YOUR convenience!

Safekeeping? That's what the banks want you to think, they need and want your money.

Ah, darn it. I was debating whether or not I should post that on the off chance I'd be revealing the place of stash, which for anyone who knows you, is quite sizeable :P

I have an HSBC premier account, Using a debit card from them does anyone know if I will be charged a FOREX charge in Israel, and what other benifits I get using this account.

First Republic Bank has free intl. ATMs (and free incoming wires), but they charge $18/mo. if you're below their $3,500 minimum.

Is it fair to assume they give a decent FX rate, or do I need to check? Anyone know of any other banks (not mentioned yet in this thread) that still offer this?

Anyone want to tell me if this makes sense?
I need to bring a lot of money to Israel .
i do not want to pay all the extra expenses to bring it here, and the possible tax issues.
i currently have 3 td accounts with 1 or 2 debit cards on each- one for me and one for the wife.
i switched all 3 to td premier accounts.
i take out the max (2500) shekel times 4 times a day (one withdrawal for each card)- times as many days as needed. i figure 3-4 weeks.

Second idea- Can i do a 3BM of atm companies- i.e. swipe the same debit card in 3 different banks machines one right after another and get more than the 2500 shekel a day limit? I once did it with 2 banks and it worked, want to know if anyone else might have any experience?
that could raise my amounts to 30000+ a day!
I spoke to td and told them i plan on doing some large amount of withdrawals- they had no problem with it and they notated my account!

All of this withdrawing activity might raise some flags.
