Q: Can I just withdraw my saving from the U.S?

 United States of America: Citibank accepts UnionPay cards at ATMs for United States dollar withdrawals. In May 2005 Discover Network announced an alliance with China UnionPay Network. The two companies have signed a long-term agreement that allows acceptance of Discover Network brand cards at UnionPay ATMs and point-of-sale terminals in China and acceptance of China UnionPay cards on the PULSE network in the U.S. Wells Fargo accepts UnionPay cards at ATMs for United States dollar withdrawals, recently confirmed in February 2013.[13] As of November 1, 2007, China UnionPay cards may be accepted where Discover Network Cards are accepted in the United States..

 

 

Based on the information above does this mean I could slowly but surely withdraw from my China savings bank from the U.S at say a Citibank? Yes yes I know there is charge for the withdraw fee, but I doesn't matter. I know I could only withdraw 20,000 RMB a day in the form of U.S dollars.

 

Did anyone ever try this,  Say withdrawing 100,000 RMB slowly back home in the U.S?

I haven't tried but I don't think it should be a problem. You want to look into what exchange rate you get buy doing it that way and what fees might be involved. I've used my Unionpay cards around Asia and in Europe, but only for purchases.

Hi WanderingTeacher! (Yes, I'm sure it's you ha)

 

I've used Chinese bank issued Union Pay cards in North America although I never tested the withdrawal limit.  If you want more details and ATM locations I recommend the Union Pay website for more information:

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
