MoneyGram International Introduces Low Introductory Fees for Mobile Money

Transfer to Philippines SMART Money Account

Send up to $500 for only a $5.00 fee*

MoneyGram International announced today a low introductory mobile money transfer rate of $5* to send up to $500 from participating U.S. agent locations to any SMART Money account in the Philippines.

“Now that MoneyGram’s mobile money transfer service is available across the United States, including at all Walmart and CVS stores, we’re eager for people to try the service and experience how convenient and reliable it is,” said Ivy Wisco, MoneyGram’s Americas marketing manager for the Philippines. “The funds arrive quickly with no need to visit an agent location to collect funds.”

The low fee is available at agent locations in Arizona, Illinois, New York, Alaska, Maryland, New Jersey, Hawaii, Nevada, and Texas through June 30th. In addition to Walmart and CVS/pharmacy, mobile money transfers can be sent from Advance America, Albertsons, Nix Check Cashing, Raley’s, Save Mart, Times Supermarket and USA Checks Cashed locations.

“Mobile phones are more and more important to individuals and we’re delighted to provide simplified mobile money transfers to SMART Money accounts in the Philippines,” Wisco added. “Cash funds can be received at an ATM or at SMART Wireless Centers adding to the convenience of this service.”

To send funds to a SMART user, senders need the recipient’s SMART phone number. Funds can be sent to any SMART phone and receivers without a SMART Money account have up to 10 days to open an account at a SMART Wireless Center and collect the funds before funds are returned to the sender. Funds are deposited quickly for SMART phone users with SMART Money accounts and confirmed by an SMS text message to the recipient’s phone. Mobile money transfers sent from the U.S. to the Philippines are deposited to SMART phone accounts in pesos, based on a currency conversion fee.
