It seems lately, everywhere I go, barely anybody has $10 bills anymore. There seems to be an overabundance of $20 and fivers, but no tenners. Why is that? Has the government suddenly stopped printing $10 bills or has the bank herd mentality dictated that they're unprofitable?

Because they now look like they came from a bum's pocket and are saturated with urine?

Ah yes, Alexander Hamilton’s immortality does have its downsides.

I tend to spend the $10s the quickest so they leave my wallet first.

The purchases above $10 tend to go on a credit card

My experience lately is similar to the OP. I'm more likely to get two 5 dollar bills than a 10 when getting change. I few times I got five 1s and a five as part of my change.

Thatís strange. I always have $10 bills along with fives and 20s.

I can do more with $5 bills than $10s. Garage and street sales, people will usually have change for a $5 but not a $10. On public transportation, I would be alright with giving up a $5 for a ride going a few blocks but would hate giving up a $10. Otherwise, I would much rather have a briefcase filled with $20s than $10s.

I believe my bank's ATM only offers 100s, 20s, and 5s. If other banks do the same, that could explain the rarity of 10s.
