The dollar Blue moves only a Small fraction (10% ?) of the dollar volume transacted each day. The rest, the largest volume is transacted in dollar CCL and dollar MEP?

The stores I am referring to have the neon signs that have Euro/Real/USD on them. I have not gone to street vendors rooms so I do not if they would direct me there. I do not believe this is where they would send me. There is one on Santa Fe and 9 Julio that I go to if I do not use Western Union. Who runs stores like that? Seems like getting rid of the street vendors and forcing people to those types of stores would be one way to create a more fixed rate for the Blue. That is of course the money exchange there goes reported.
Those "stores" are the casas de cambio. They are legal. Don't go there, unless you like losing lots of your hard earned money. Didn't you notice that they give you less than half of what Western Union gives you? You really, really don't want to go there. Don't use an ATM with your USA credit or debit card, either.

Nobody is going to get rid of the street vendors. And you don't want them to. If for some reason you can't use Western Union, you want to go to them. Even the very worst of them will give you double what those "stores" are giving you. And you won't have to be bothered with any government paperwork. When you go to them, bring new, crisp 100 dollar bills if you have them. Nobody here wants bills that aren't new and nobody wants less than hundreds, though they'll probably take them for a lower price. And if possible, don't carry too much cash at one time.

Wondering if there is a new code because the previous one isn't working today...? Thanks!

Is there a code to use for MG or do we just have to pay a fee? I've never tried it (and apologies if this is covered in another post).
Bank to bank transfers are free and the debit card transfer to bank is 1.99 so I never worried about a code.

The store that I mentioned does give me the Blue Dollar rate which is why I do go to that store. I have stopped in one store on Florida/Lavalle? and they were only offering the Official rate. Which is why I was asking about who owns / operates those stores(the one that gives the blue rate). If they are sponsored by some government agency I would have thought that they would want to direct all USD to them.
When I have used WU I feel like a bank robber with the bands of cash that I am handed. I bring a jacket with many zippered pockets.
