    Western Union money transfer

    HSBC has worked well for me. Once my Western Union account was set up and validated, an early in the morning Western Union transfer to the HSBC Argentina would post to the HSBC account after 6 pm same day or by 6 pm the next day. Not sure about HSBC sucursales out in the provinces but in...

    Bring a quality can opener if you ever plan to open a can here without sacrificing your bloodied fingers. Useless versions are everywhere.

    Western Union money transfer

    Surely WU has full knowledge on this. From my experience with WU, when there's a problem, you really need to drill down through their layers of phone assistance. Once you get to someone a supervisor, demanding that they escalate your case. Get a case number and be persistent until you get it...

    Moving from USA to Argentina....best option with phone?

    Recommend you look into a VOIP phone and account. I use Vonage. Excellent service, have used for 18 years. There is a monthly fee, now about U$36/month. Once you have their little box you can plug into the internet (modem) anywhere in the world and call and receive calls on a phone handset.

    VeriFLY vale la pena!

    On your encouraging report I went to the VeriFly website. Not to throw any shade, at all, but your experience is way ahead of any information they offer there. No indication of Argentina in their American Airlines information. One would hope they catch themselves up and grow the service.
