    I need a virtual US phone number to receive sms messages here in Argentina

    My Google Voice number works with Bank of America, Capital One, and Discover Bank text notifiations. I had problems with PayPal and Zelle but, after several intents, I could successfully use my google voice number with PayPal, and I use my email while wokring with Zelle. Hope this helps!

    I am not sure if this is a reliable source. He is saying that the Arg government will force Arg WU (and I think all the "remesas" companies) to give dollars instead of pesos. No extra information was added in the tweet.

    This tweet Says that after the new Massa economic plan, WU will have to give dollars for all transactions. What can happen if that is true? I think they will only allow transfers to bank accounts, making it almost impossible to get that money in bills and limiting the number of transfers...

    Airline ticket prices

    The real price of the flight is the "dollar" price. The "peso" price includes the extra taxes (official rate + imp Pais + AFIP). I think it is expensive because Argentina is far from the US and, after the pandemic, more people are chosing to flight. So, IMO there are a strong demand of...

    Most airlines have in-town offices, it depends on where you live. They usually charge an extra cost for paying at the office. If your flight is international, the price in pesos (with the new taxes just added today) should be similar to the price in dollars (without arg taxes) at the blue rate...

    Yes, but "dolar tarjeta" (including 35% imp Pais) is $220 - Dollar CCL $ 300. Some people are taking advantage of this. Sadly, I agree.

    That's cool. I love central Florida! especially the weather :) From what I have read, they will probably cancel the option to pay foreign credit card expenses in pesos. So Argentinians will have to buy dollars (Blue, MEP) to pay the dollar expenses on the credit cards. But IMO they can take...

    Thank you! Tomorrow, the new minister (Batakis) could take some actions that may affect the CCL price, making it higher or lower - I think 282 pesos (paying 50% of the transfer fee) is not a bad deal.

    Hello all! I am an argentinian currently living and working in Clermont, Fl. I know this site is not built for me, but I regularly check here for WU promo codes hehe. I did the same thing today, I contacted support asking for promo codes, but I had a similar response. I'll wait until Sunday...
