Check your $1 bills – they could actually be worth $10,000

Now in circulation in the Twin Cities: 500 $1 bills that could be worth up to $10,000.

That dollar bill in your pocket could be worth a lot more than a buck.

On Sunday, financial services company Ally Financial put 500 real U.S. $1 bills into circulation in the Twin Cities. They spent the money at places like gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops, and diners – where cash is widely used.

But these George Washingtons are worth more than meets the eye. Ally has kept track of their serial numbers, and anyone who finds them could win $100, $500, or $10,000.

It’s part of a nationwide campaign to “focus consumers’ attention on making every dollar work harder,” Ally said in a news release.

The dollars were dropped in these Minneapolis-St. Paul neighborhoods: Downtown (Hennepin Avenue/Nicollet area), Uptown, West Bank and the Warehouse District.

“But remember – cash travels fast,” Ally says.

The sweepstakes began Sunday and concludes July 31, 2017. Check your $1 bills here to see if you’re a winner.
