With no transfer fees when you send money online, moneycorp could be just the answer if you are looking to send money to family or friends this Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is on its way! Think comically large birds, pumpkin pie and colourful parades from our friends across the pond. In recent years, the days that follow the feast have become almost as significant, with supermarket wrestle-fest Black Friday and its Amazon-flavoured counterpart Cyber Monday growing in prominence.  Every year, these dates see an increase in demand for enormous tellys and electric toothbrushes, and with it, an increase in people sending US dollars to America.

Although restrictions in the States have eased in recent months, Covid-related uncertainty around international travel means many Americans living overseas won’t be making the trip home for the holiday season. In today’s hyper-connected world, a lack of physical proximity is no barrier to sharing a memorable thanksgiving with family. Covid-19 has given rise to Zoom banquets, virtual parades and saying grace via email.

If you can’t be at home this Thanksgiving, forget about slow, expensive overseas shipping and allow moneycorp to take the stress out of the gift-giving process. By sending money overseas, you can be sure your loved ones will be able to buy a gift they can put to good use - whether that’s a new TV in the Black Friday sales, or a smart speaker on Cyber-Monday! Most international payments with moneycorp typically take 1-2 days to arrive in the recipient’s bank account. 

With no transfer fees when you send money online, moneycorp could be just the answer if you are looking to send money to family or friends this Thanksgiving. Sign up for a free account in minutes to get those Thanksgiving dollars wherever they need to be.

What is an ABA routing number?

An ABA routing number is sometimes required if you wish to transfer money to a US bank account, especially if not using the SWIFT method.
