What do you do when you get one of these?

by Randy Allen

Every once in a while someone will give me a $2.00 bill for change. Then I ask myself, do I keep it or give it back for a couple of single dollars?

The rare $2 bill is a new hot commodity with the hipster community in NYC.

One woman runs a blog called Two Buckaroo where she writes about her experiences of trying to pay with $2 bills in her day to day life.

$2 bills account for only 3% of the circulating notes - meaning there are just a billion of them floating around. This blogger uses her twos for good - paying with them randomly and giving people a little bit of excitement.

Are you surprised to know the $2.00 bill is still around. What do you do when you get one of these?
