Cash over $10,000 can be a problem and that includes cashier's checks. Best to owe under $10,000 for pick-up.

Cash over $10,000 is NOT a problem. You just have to declare it.
Recent Border Security TV program had a guy who was a movie producer who declared $400,000 in cash. Wasn't an issue, but he did declare it.
If he hadn't, it could have been seized and he would have to prove it legitimate to get it back.

I mean that, yes, it has to be declared or that could be a big problem. We took a few thousand to make the final payment but we were under $10,000. If someone is over, they had better so say. Some people seem to think that you should just not say what you have.

Didn't someone also say that cash over $10,000 there held by Americans required them to do U.S. paperwork? Don't know.

I also would not go by one example of a person who may be well known --- if he or she was --- as to what might be the treatment for anyone else who happens to have $400,000 cash or a lot less with them. Of course, some of these wealthy Escape buyers can let us know when they go to pick up and have $400,000 with them. Eric?

Absolutely true. I've taken well over $10,000 in cash into the US to buy a car. Just declare it, takes a couple of minutes to deal with and you're done legally. Nothing to come back and bite you.

I don't make a habit of carrying large amounts of cash but in this case we'd done a bank transfer to Portland but the person freaked out when his bank said that they still put a hold on it for a couple of days. Darn wife just had to have a certain type of car in a color not available in Canada.

You are required to report cash over $10,000. You are given the opportunity to do so. If you don't, you are smuggling cash.
And, don't try to bring an apple.

Coming into the U.S., they took my orange. But then that's apples and oranges.
