Where to withdraw US Dollars?

I need to withdraw about $100 cash for a deposit (this way when I leave I'll be taking USD home instead of CHF). I have a US credit card that I use to withdraw CHF from the Swisscom ATM machines. I plan on using the same machine to get USD, but I have never paid attention to whether this is an option.

Does anyone know if A) I can get USD from a Swisscom machine and B) Is there an easier way to go about getting the cash?

I'll need it to make a deposit tomorrow. I live close to the Zurich train station and have thought about just going there for a money exchange.

Swisscom has ATM's now? That's news to me.

Do Swisscom do ATM machines?

Your choice of cash from an ATM in Switzerland will be CHF or Euro. Best bet is to just get the money changed.

I thought they were Swisscom machines, but I'll admit that I have no idea what company they are. In my defense, I only use them about once a month and my memory isn't what it used to be.

Thanks for the help!

You can usually withdraw CHF from the machines, then walk into a bank and change it for USD. Try the bigger banks.
