New discovery!
Money Changer at the 4th Floor of Southwoods Mall in Binan, Laguna
When the US dollar-peso rate was much less than 53 pesos in many exchange shops, their rate was
1 US dollar = 53 pesos.

For big amounts of money, go to money changers inside malls that also have banks or cash deposit machines operating inside the malls. After getting your peso bills, you can just walk several steps towards these banks or cash deposit machines and deposit your money.

Some of the banks that operate inside malls are:
BDO and China Bank (SM malls)
BPI (Ayala malls and some SM malls)
Robinsons Bank (Robinsons malls)
EastWest (Festival Mall).
BPI has cash deposit machines at Ayala malls and at some SM malls.

Note:  These money changers might have other branches not listed.


NOTE: Many money changers now require you to present at least 1 valid ID and fill up personal data forms.  Some even require at least 2 valid IDs from new customers.
Obviously, this new procedure arose from the recent Bangladesh Bank heist, in which US$81 million was stolen from the bank through wire transfer and was laundered through RCBC Bank and money changer PhilRem.
