    I ordered money online, got a date to collect it but I can’t make it to that date. Can I collect it the next day?

      JhezelynDecember 7, 2018Finder

      Hello JC,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Yes, you can collect it the next day. Please note that as soon as the store receives your order, they will send you a text message or email to tell you that it’s available for collection. Your order will be held in store for 10 days, after this time it will be returned to their depot and you will be refunded.

    When buying foreign currency from Asda, are there any commission charges? My credit card receipt showed a figure but my credit card statement showed a higher figure. I bought US and Canadian dollars.

      Hello Royston,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Upon checking, Asda money will buy back most foreign currency notes you have at 0% commission, whether you bought the currency from them or not. In addition, you will not be charged a card processing fee by Asda if you choose to pay by debit or credit card. However, your card issuer may apply additional charges and they recommend that you check this with your card provider before you buy currencies.

    How long have you got to collect an order

      CharisseOctober 10, 2018Finder

      Hi Tereen,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      If you fail to collect your order from ASDA nominated locations within 4 working days of the collection time then your order will be marked as non-collected. Your order will then be cancelled and will be automatically refunded onto the payment card at the daily buy back rate minus an administration charge of £15.

      I hope this helps.
