Are you in the Alabang, Muntinlupa area?

Here are the money changers that have been giving us the best foreign exchange rates in the Alabang, Muntinlupa area:

Ground Floor, Alabang Town Center

It’s to your right after you enter the Jollibee-North Park entrance

. Located near the main cashier area of Metro Supermarket
. You will be asked to fill up a small slip and present your ID
. Sometimes they run out of pesos and you will be asked to wait while they get peso bills from upstairs.
. I found out that this money changer gives almost the same rate as that of Czarina when one time, nearby Czarina ran out of pesos and I had to find another money changer nearby

and behind STARBUCKS Daang Hari.

Fast transaction, 
although for bigger amounts, you’re asked to write your name and phone no. and sign on the receipt.
Lower exchange rates for $50, $20, $10, $5, $2 and $1 bills.
Note: Xchange Forex probably had problems during the 2014 holidays as their US-dollar-peso rate fell below 44 pesos while Czarina’s rate hovered around 44.50 pesos.

34 National Road, Putatan, Muntinlupa
Beside 7-Eleven and McDonalds

If you’re near the Muntinlupa City Hall and you don’t have time to go to Czarina, this Western Union outlet gives a good dollar-peso rate — the best rate among many Western Union outlets that I have dealt with.

At this moment, 5am, Feb 23, 2018, their buying rate for a US dollar is 52.03 pesos, as shown in their website.
Yesterday, Feb 22, Czarina’s exchange rate was 52 pesos to a dollar.’s rate this moment is also 52 pesos = 1 dollar.

Maybe you can try it if you’re in the Festival Mall area, and then kindly share with us your experience — kung mabagal sila, or there are too many fields to fill up in their exchange forms.
I have not tried changing my dollars with this bank, but recently, I was pleasantly surprised when I passed by EastWest Bank near the National Bookstore and I saw a big change in their exchange rate. Dati pareho rin sila ng other banks na much lower rate than money changers, pero recently competitive na rin sila.

Do you know other money changers that give higher exchange rates?
