As title says. Largesty amount you can recall. And do you often carry much on you, or rely on EFTPOS and the like?

Does a bank cheque count?

If so, $15,000

Hrm, that's a good question.

I've held ~6k, but I wasn't the one that took it to the bank :P I've seen a bag with $17k in this house, but again, I didn't really carry it.

The largest would probably be ~1k, heading straight to the bank.

More generally, I carry anywhere from $15 to $150 cash on me, I prefer to keep it at the $50 mark.

[edit]: If we are talking cheque, then a blank check which eventually turned out to be ~19.5k

$38,500.00

Walked from the office to the bank to deposit the cash. Suddenly felt really vunerable for those 10 minutes.

I just had any idea for an insurance product. "Short transit cash insurance", pay $5 per $10k and if anything happens to it during the transit you get it back.

Of course, would probably be inviting fraud :S

Probably about $400, going to a PC shop to buy some gear.

EFTPOS is where it's at.

20 000 yen + change - probably close to 300 bucks Aussie. Japan sucked for getting cash out - no atms at bars or restaurants or even in the street. Bah!

I think $12,000 was the most I've carried in cash. I was withdrew it from one bank then drove about 5km to another bank to put it in a term deposit.

The bank I was withdrawing it from were a little pissed about having to deal with the cash (although I rang up in advance to warn them so they could be prepared - as they had requested from previous occasions), but they wanted to charge me $6 for a bank cheque so I took cash.

It was weird at the other bank as the branch was a small one in the main mall of a suburb that is shall we say a low socio-economic region. They're typically not used to dealing with large wads of cash and the poor teller had to sit there and count $12K in 50s in front of me at the enquiries desk near the window as that was where they wanted me to be to open a term deposit. She looked like she would much prefer to be elsewhere (on reflection, they probably also though a 22YO wandering with an envelope of 50s might have not been the most honest person)

A bag with $44,000.

Someone paid my parents in cash for a car, and they rang me to bank it, in case someone rolled my poor mother on the way to the teller.

It didn't look like that much.

Bugger me, I would have paid the $6 :P

The most in cash was $1200 in twenties when I sold my year-old computer to my cousin.

I made a fan with the notes, and then slapped him in the face with it.

Seemed appropriate at the time.

$3k, when I had to pay for a reco engine and some other stuff.

I usually carry up to $500; that way I don't have to do the damn ATM too often.

Fucken hate plastic.

I'd say somewhere between 10-25K, but when you're working for a bookie it isn't that unusual.

Hmm....

Somewhere over US$100K, before EFTPOS and CCs that was what you carried as a charter pilot to pay bills.

Don't usually carry that much cash, prefer to just use plastic to pay for expenses.
