Philippines Money Transfer{18}

Note: this is a previous article, reposted with comments from last year. I was going to write a new article, as I continue to be very impressed with the service from Remithome. I decided that I’d be saying much of the same.

I’ve been sending money to various locations in the Philippines for a number of years now. Since we bought our property I’ve needed to set up a monthly installment. I looked at the various options for doing that, and I came back to my old standby of Remithome. I thought possibly a direct transfer from my bank would work, but the charges were too high. If the company I was dealing with would accept credit cards that certainly would have been a desirable option, but unfortunately they do not.

What I like about Remithome is the higher than most exchange rates, the reasonable transfer fee (especially if you set up a recurring transfer), and their customer service. You can have the money sent direct to a bank account or have it delivered in person. I’ve done both without issue. They have a local number that you can call and I’ve taken advantage of that on a few occasions. They have always been very helpful, and in at least one instance deviated from the norm to help me.

If you decide to try Remithome you can click on the link I provided, or the logo in my sidebar. I’ll get $5 credit for referring you, and you’ll get $10 off, so your first transfer is free. A good deal for me and a good deal for you. Of course you could always go to their site and sign up directly. I’m not sure if you get the $10 credit or not, in that case.

There are quite a few of these types of companies out there, so I encourage you to do your research to see what works best for you. If you want a recommendation based off my experience, then I think you’ll be happy with Remithome.
