because i don't know what they are smoking in the WU brunch that pays 78. The ones in palermo give 63 and the cueva 65
I just downloaded the WU app and if I send 25.000 pesos within Argentina to be picked up in dollars, the net amount (which includes a $500 peso promo) would be $327,20 USD which equals a rate of $77,93 ARS to ONE USD!

PS: The WU Argentine app won't let me send USD from my US bank account to my Argentine bank account and the WU USA app is "not compatible" with any of my devices.

Would a VPN solve that problem?

Yeah, a VPN might resolve it. That 77,93 ARS to 1 USD rate is their ARS->USD rate though. I just checked and USD->ARS is currently 64,34 ARS to 1 USD. Quite a nasty spread, but still pretty good for us that have foreign accounts and don't want the lower official and interbank rates (and don't want to do the USD->USD, withdraw, exchange at cueva dance).

I want to figure out how to get that contado with liqui rate though. For those of us with accounts in the US it should be possible...

Please let us know if you actually received $78 pesos (or close to that amount) for each dollar you transferred today.
