Tesco has recently introduced MoneyGram money transfer counters into many of its larger stores. This allows you to send or receive money via pretty much every country in the world.
If you have ever used Western Union to send money abroad, it is pretty much the same service.
Neither MoneyGram or Western Union are great value for sending large amounts of money abroad. There are specialist online companies such as as Azimo (who are currently offering a £15 Amazon voucher for first time users) and TransferWise who can do it better and cheaper.
However, for small transfers, the convenience of being able to use a MoneyGram counter in your local Tesco store seven days a week may well outweigh any small extra cost.
To encourage you to give them a try, MoneyGram is offering 100 Clubcard points when you send £50 or more to another country.
The offer runs until 27th April and you can take advantage of it as many times as you like. The small print says that the £50 can include the fee, so the minimum amount you need to send will actually be a little lower.
