1. Inexpensive and very convenient to move money down to Mexico using 'Wise' or 'XE'. With 'Wise' your money is transferred at the interbank rate... not sure about XE, don't use em. Once setup it's just a few mouse clicks and you transfer your money from NOB to down here. Very easy.
2. No bank fees (Intercam) and free to get $ from the ATM... including ScotiaBank... there may be others. No more exorbitant ATM fees when using NOB bank cards.
3. 'National' bank cards work in most if not all ATM's, also work at places like Pemex, Hawaii and the Bodega/Walmart/Soriana. The Bodega gives 'cash back' on your card if you ask. No more rejected cards. National cards work at the Banjercito ATM (they may charge a small fee)
4. GIC's get way better interest in Mexico. NOB sometimes seems you get almost 0%..while the banksters often get over 20% (credit cards) with your invested money.
