Title: Citibank Global Transfers, anyone try it?
Post by: Lee2 on March 25, 2018, 05:23:29 PM
A friend made me aware of Citibank® Global Transfers (https://online.citi.com/US/JRS/pands/detail.do?ID=InterCiti) can anyone who has used them for international transfers post about how it works? It sounds too easy, supposedly a Citibank account in both countries and just sign on and move the money in minutes, is that true?

I have used a "Citi Bank" ATM card in the Phils with no dramas.
No fees ( other than the ATM owner P200 fee ) and really good FX rate.

Just waiting for one of the family to open their own Citi account and will give it a try.

I have heard very good things about it. :D
