I was looking online last night to see if there’s a possibility of a new series of $2 bills. I did find two links worth sharing. One is about someone making the decision to spend or keep $2 bills. The other is from NPR about how $2 bills are making a comeback for various reasons, some of which I hadn’t heard.

I don’t know that they’re making a comeback. I’ve been spending them to be different and to log them into Where’s George. To notice an increase in hits wouldn’t be saying much. Ones still get the lion’s share of hits. I have been noticing people giving them out as change, so that is a good sign.

I’m debating over whether or not to close my account at TD Bank. (Formerly Commerce Bank.) I went there last weekend to get change and one of the tellers gave me grief about it. Apparently, they don’t keep a lot of singles in the front and it’s a big deal to go into the back to get more. Also, she looked up my account and told me that my account was ’inactive’. Change was a service that they only performed for ’active’ accounts. Yes, I could just deposit a check every now and again. I’ll have to think about it.

I do have a correction to make. In my last entry, I said that I was 12,000 bills shy of being on the top 201 list for bills entered. It should have been 1,200. I’m now actually on the top 201 list. I was able to get a few hundred bills last weekend and a few hundred yesterday. That put me on the list.

I have also noticed new stats on Where’s George when I refresh. The new additions are the average time between hits and the average distance per hit. I am also able to access the top 200 people per state by clicking on it. I just thought I’d mention that since it is in the stats that I copied.
