About Currency Exchange International - Seattle, WA:

Currency Exchange International aims to create a worry free foreign currency service for all of Seattle's foreign currency exchange needs. CXI has two locations servicing the Seattle area: one at Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, between Zumiez and Urban Outfitters, and one at Westfield Southcenter Mall in Tukwila, on level 1 across from Lenscrafters. CXI's courteous, knowledgeable staff offers exchange rates that are better than local banks and much better than the airport exchange's rates. Don't wait in line at the airport or deal with banking hours just to receive higher rates.

As an international traveler you should know, not all currency exchange companies are created the same. CXI is a specialist in the foreign currency exchange industry operating branches in convenient, safe locations ready to convert your money, as well as being one of the largest wholesale banknote exchange in North America. This allows us to leverage our bulk foreign banknote exchange to give you, the international traveler, better rates.

To back this up, CXI boasts its Best Rate Guarantee* that it will match or beat any local bank for the same product and service on same day and time of the exchange. This way travelers in the Seattle area know they are always getting a great exchange value along with the added convenience of seven days a week service.

CXI now also is able to exchange limited foreign coins: 1 & 2 EUR, 1 & 2 CAD, 1 & 2 GBP, 10 & 20 MXN. No other foreign coins are exchanged. To help reduce lines and wait times for all customers, all foreign coins must be sorted prior to them coming to the branch to exchange them. Please note that CXI buys and sells foreign coins at a lesser rate compared to banknotes.
