    Western Union money transfer

    Just did a WU cash pick up from US bank account this morning. It was confirmed by WU and the money picked up by me within an hour of my request. Excellent service. The fee wasn't waived but was mostly offset by the blue peso rate.

    Dollar Value Predictions 2021/2022

    I hope it goes higher as I exist here on dollars. I do find it par for the course that the Chinese market I buy my wine at jumped prices about 25% last month after they raised them (at least on wine) about 20% a few months back; however, as the blue dollar declined from 330 or so to around 270...

    Thank you for the offer but the code didn't work for me.

    Western Union money transfer

    Just tried that but fee was not waived. It was almost $15 for a $100 bank to cash pick up feature. Even bank (US) to bank (ARG) still around $9.

    Thanks, too but neither code worked for me. The WU gods must be angry at me.

    Western Union money transfer

    Just tried both a bank to bank transfer (from my US bank) to here and a cash pick up! Fees applied on both so I cancelled. Lucky I have dollars but like getting them out of my US account as they earn nothing there. The WU gods love you!

    Western Union money transfer

    If that's on WU I'll try to send a transfer now to see what happens! 5 minutes later: Just tried a transfer but couldn't get rid of the fee so I cancelled it. You must have the gods of WU on your side.

    Crypto Is Tumbling, but in Argentina It’s Still a Safer Bet

    A friend of mine's son, age 23, thought he'd retire early and started buying crypto in small amounts; started around $19,000 (he only invested a fraction of that) and as it rose to $45,000 drew other family and friends in. Need I tell you what happened? Poof.

    I used the code yesterday for a fee-free transfer but it appears to be valid through Aug 30 for other transfers.

    What's it like in Argentina these days?

    Yes! However in the US, also on a $1,500 income you can sleep under the best interstate bridge in your area and dine on the finest stale bread and bottled water (if you don't get mugged, first).

    What's it like in Argentina these days?

    I'm not sure where you're living but some US cities like San Francisco, LA, New York, Miami, Philadelphia and many, many others are unaffordable for most people, crime is out of control and the quality of life in general in many of those cities is horrid. While I'd be the first to admit I don't...
