    Shipping household good to or from Argentina

    Wish I had known about this company last fall but I wholeheartedly agree that it was well worth it to bring our stuff from US to here! It has made the transition much easier on many levels and for us it only took one month to get to Argentina and had it not been for the December holidays we...

    Looking for an apartment in Palermo (Dec-Jan-Feb)

    Send me a message directly. I have a friend with a two bedroom apartment with a full bath, toilette and service bathroom near Palermo Chico/recoleta that might be available. I will put you in touch. It doesn’t have a pool but it has security and a parking space with valet included.

    Western Union money transfer

    I started using my passport but then was told by a WU agent that it wasn't accepted and I had to use my DNI, but that was for a cash pickup not a bank transfer. I use my DNI now. I imagine it is different depending on whether you are here as a tourist or a permanent resident...

    Western Union money transfer

    I have done it before and I can do it at Walgreens in the super safe suburb I am in with my debit card. It is done with a cashier too not a terminal.

    Western Union money transfer

    So you think it's the end? I'm curious for how long the free codes existed? And do you all think it makes sense to just send myself or my husband a bunch with the cheaper in store rates while I'm in US?

    Western Union money transfer

    😣 Do you think it is related to the recent NY Times article? I wonder if the fact that they mentioned WU specifically in the article has made some kind of impact (meaning WU is now more aware of the way we are all using/relying on their free codes).

    Changing the subject a bit...wondering if anyone can give insight as to when a new WU free code might appear? Is it typical for there to be a many day gap without one? I'm a newbie so any insight would be appreciated as we're doing some home construction which has us feeling like we're...
