Other than drug deals, I wonder what all the $100 bills are used for? I never intentionally get one.

They are coming out with a "new" $100.00 bill in Jan 2013, but not to worry as the counterfeiters already stole samples from the first batch that was printed in Dallas!

I'm curious about this also. Where are all those $100 bills going? I rarely have or hold one.

I almost always carry at least one, and hold lots for emergency-emergency. So I guess it's me on the graph, sorry.

Carrying around money, I never do because many places I go don't take them. But when I make my quarterly visit to Vegas I load up on them. Bank Tellers probably think drug deal.

Remember that a lot of those $100 bills keep foreign commerce humming along...

I have been to other countries where you can choose to take out either US money or local money... I have never seen one with any other currency....

Casinos, race tracks, banks, and other venues that use or exchange large amounts of currency. The $100 bill is presently the largest denomination printed; larger denominations being phased out beginning in '69. I can recall seeing Monty Hall giving away $500 & $1000 bills on Let's Make a Deal when I was a kid.

Large denominations of United States currency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mine is in $20 bills. I feel it would be easier to use and the "keep the change" aspect that might be required would be reduced.

We do more cash and fewer plastic card transactions than most people. But, we don't carry anything bigger than $20s. My wallet isn't strained by carrying five $20s rather than one $100.

I'll guess the gov't could stop printing $100s and the only people significantly inconvenienced by that would be those involved in something illegal (where "illegal" includes hiding income from the IRS).

My buddy works in a high(er) end restaurant with an older clientele. He gets one or two $100 bills a night.

While my emergency money is in $20 bills, I like to give my grandkids a crisp $100 bill on their birthdays... (Am I the culprit?)

My favorite ATM just started giving out $50's. Maybe they'll start pulling ahead now. The new $20? Perfect for all those raging inflation types.

My emergency cash is in $20's. I have a stash of $50's too, that I've just kept when I encounter one. Maybe it's because Grant is such a dashing gentleman

The only time I had a lot of $100's was when my son was buying a car with cash. I had given him my old car. Later, it was totaled in an accident and I kept the settlement money in my savings account until he was ready to buy. When he found the car he wanted I got the cash and gave it to him to make the purchase. The seller was very impressed!

Any time I get cash back at Walmart or Sams Club, they always quickly hand me a $100 and shut the drawer. Many places won't even take them, so I end up shoving it in the atm and having the atm give me back 20's. And when I get cash back at a walmart family store these days, I tell them before they open the drawer not to give me any $100's. Turns out they throw a $100 in each drawer and won't give the employees more cash than that for cash back because they don't trust them.

"not to give me any $100's" - Bunny, when you ask for cash back you don't fool around do you! I think $40 is the most I have asked for in cash back at a store.

Very convenient to carry $500 in five bills for emergency money on a trip.
Gives you the option of using a credit card or cash and sometimes you can negotiate buying cheaper with cash.
