    During a recent vcation I found a bill with a wheresgeorge stamp on it. I entered the serial number and it showed that someone entered it on the east coast 6 months ago. I looked on the website and had a few questions so I checked out their forums.

    I was laughing out loud because a bunch of people who track bills around the country get in as many pissing contests as they do here.

    Needless to say that made it hard to get much info when it is more heat than light.

    Anybody do it? Any pointers?




    And just in case anyone wants a look to know WTF I am talking about here is a bill like the one I got.

    Yup. Been doing it off and on for ten years.
    Just last month I marked/logged in ten $1 bills and took them with me to Venezuela and gave them as tips to various drivers/servers/bellmen etc.

    Two weeks later one of those bills hit in South Dakota.

    One question I had was with the "EMS" thing, enter, mark, spend.

    Does this mean I enter the serial number with the zip code where I live then spend the money as I normally do?

    Or do I enter the zipcode of where I spend it?

    I ask because while I live in place A I spend a lot of time in place B. I also travel around the Bay Area on my days off and take vacations to a couple of different states.

    The answers on the forums seem to be all over the place. Some peole take trips just to seed the money in various counties or states. Others seem to think it can only be spent like you normally would spend.

    You're 'supposed' to spend it as you normally would. But I would 'normally' have not tipped Venezuelans with US dollar bills. I wanted to see if/how the bills circulated once they were dropped off down there.

    You can enter any bill you want, but if it doesn't have a "Where's george" stamp, you aren't going to know to check it on the site.

    You can buy the where's george stamps so you can stamp your dollar bills.
