How does Western Union work?

Why is my Western Union promo code not working?

There are several reasons this could be happening. To troubleshoot, consider the following:

  • Does your code meet the terms and conditions? You might have to send a certain amount through Western Union, or it may only be applicable for some currencies.
  • Is your code correctly entered into the field? Sounds simple, but sometimes copy and paste gets the better of all of us. Western Union codes might be case-sensitive, so bear this in mind.
  • Are there any restrictions on the code? There may be a certain time frame you have to use it within, or it may be restricted to a certain country that Western Union services.
  • Have you used the code already? The code might only be for one-time use.

How can I save money when using Western Union without a promo code?

The Western Union membership programme offers rewards, which may help you save money over time or after sending a few large transfers. To learn more about Western Union before signing up, read our Western Union review to learn about fees, exchange rates, the reward program and more.

    I wish to send money to a friend in the USA. How do they get the cash?

      Hi Lee,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      You can send money to a friend in the US using Western Union. How they receive the money would depend on you. You can send the money and let them pick it in one of the Western Union agent locations in the US. Alternatively, you can also directly send the money to their bank account, provided that you know their bank details.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
