    Vaccination with expired passport?

    So I want to get vaccinated ASAP but my passport has been expired for a while and I'm about to send it to the embassy to get it renewed by mail, which may take a couple months I'm assuming. Just wondering if anyone has any idea whether it's possible to get the vaccine without up-to-date...

    Cheapest shipping service?

    Yeah, I'm not new here and should've anticipated this but it turns out someone misled me to believe it'd be about $160 bucks. C'est la vie...

    Cheapest shipping service?

    What else can I do? It ends up costing a ton more if I buy it on MercadoLibre or something.

    Cheapest shipping service?

    Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for shipping a MacBook Air from the US to Buenos Aires. Checked with DHL and it ends up costing $334 + $19.05 insurance, and UPS is about $300 for shipping + $300 dollars for insurance, so I'm looking for cheaper options if possible. The laptop...

    Picking up money without ID

    lol pretty sure the only real words on that list are affectious and abstentious (and I'm not even that sure about the latter), unless ofc he's harkening back to an older form of English.

    Picking up money without ID

    Denied my ID. Last guy wasn't sure if the system would let him but he wanted to help me out and fortunately it all went through.

    Picking up money without ID

    Update: After going to three branches I was able to get my money. So no, in general they won't let you pick up money with an expired ID, but you might get lucky.

    Yeah I was being somewhat facetious. Anyway, just tried to transfer through WU so hopefully don't run into any issues picking it up tomorrow.

    Picking up money without ID

    My understanding was that Xoom charges a fixed fee ($5 for every transaction) wheras WU takes a percentage so when sending larger amounts of money it ends up costing you more? But if I'm wrong about that then that's very good to know!

    Picking up money without ID

    I've always used Xoom and yes they don't let you pick up the money with an expired passport. I guess I should just try WU then? I have a joint bank account with my mother in the US, but no bank card on hand and so I need some way to transfer it to me somewhere with cash pickup. Anyway, thanks...
