GaGers living in the US, I'd really appreciate it if you can answer it. This is the situation, I walk into a bank with a benjamin, and ask the cashier to give me twenty of $5 bills. Is this transaction doable? In Turkey, banks don't do this anymore. They used to, but not anymore. How about in the US?

Dude, just go somewhere where there's a surplus inflow of $1's and $5's as part of the natural course of business, and change it there.
Like, say, a bar. Most bars are totally flush with small bills, from all the tips.
Or, if you're in a city, any valet parking guy. Those guys walk around with easily $500 in their pocket in fives and tens.
Why do you want so many small bills?0
