Western Union money transfer

Hello everyone,

So far Western Union rate (send USD Cash form USA, pick up Peso in BsAs) seems to be the best exchange rate? How about the "blue dollar" rate that you get in Buenos Aires at this moment? I'm returning to Buenos Aires next month and will stay there for an extended period of time. I'm not sure should I carry maximum USD cash with me (and get money exchange at dollar blue rate), or should I just ask my sister (in USA) to send me money via Western Union regularly. Which rate is better? Also, if I use the Western Union way, can I pick up the money by showing only my passport? I will be living in Buenos Aires with a tourist visa so I don't have DNI nor tax file number. Thanks for the advice.
Do both bring greenbacks and ask your sister to send you via WU, note that there is a limit to the monthly amount you can send via WU ..! Ig you don't spend the dollars you take them back...

where can i find promo code for western union?
I got mine from a Western Union rep responding to my complaints about their lousy service. And it is lousy. So don't feel any guilt in sending them a complaint and when they respond, if they don't offer one, ask for one. As I recall I complained about the fee to the rep and he offered up the promo code. Also, I was able to re-use the promo code successfully in my various attempts to send myself money. It didn't expire after several uses.
