Do Bank of America debit cards work on most ATMs in China?

Jump to last reply

I have read that withdrawing cash from ATMs in China by using debit cards issued by U.S. banks may be problematic (cards don't always work) such that one should convert as much foreign currrency as possible on arrival at the airport in China . I also heard that unless one converts money at the airport and receives a receipt, it is almost impossible to convert unused yuan back to US dollars when leaving China.

If any of you are BOA account holders, I would appreciate hearing about your experience trying to withdraw cash from ATMs. Apparently BOA has a deal with China Constructoin Bank whereby there are no extra charges using their ATMS so I assume that bank's ATMS will at least work. However in case I can't easily locate one of their branches, I'd like to know if other ATMS worked for BOA cards. Thanks!
