I used Sterling FX and they are offering 1.28$.

FairFX I use for travel card and only 1.27$.

Not sure you will get much better unless you find someone at DTD selling at spot. Then you will get 1.3.

Ordered some off Tesco online got the crappy 1.2570
Felt it’s a better rate in store
Plus they may send $50 bills - bad luck
So I cancelled

I bought some more a few weeks ago, and have all I'm taking now.

If I do my conkers and need to get more, I'll just have to buy them out there.
