According to Mexico News Daily, remittances to Mexico have increased by 5.3% since August 2019. This is great news, both for the country’s economy and for the individuals receiving additional financial support as Mexicans across the world continue to send money home.
With Day of the Dead almost here (November 2), and if you have family and friends who are celebrating — now is a great time to send money to Mexico.
What is Día de Muertos?
Día de Muertos is often thought of as a Mexican “Halloween”, but this isn’t quite true. While both focus on the concept of death, even this isn’t truly something they have in common.
Halloween is a dark holiday, all about mischief and spooky surprises, which is traditionally all about warding off ghosts. Día de Muertos, on the other hand, is a two-day celebration of the lives of deceased family members and is all about joy and color.
It is traditionally celebrated with parades and parties that involve singing, dancing, and technicolor costumes. And — most importantly – offerings to those we love who are no longer with us. If you are looking to make your own offering, or simply send money to friends or family in Mexico in time for Day of the Dead, here’s why Small World is a great option:
How is Small World helping customers sending money to Mexico for Day of the Dead?
In order to help you and your family celebrate Día de los Muertos, Small World are offering a special deal for those looking to transfer money to Mexico.
What’s the deal?
Small World is offering our customers one fee-free transfer.
When can I access the deal? This fee-free transfer to Mexico can be made any time on Monday November 2 and on Tuesday November 3, until 6:59pm EST.
This window is the perfect time to take advantage of a fee-free transfer, and send money to your loved ones in Mexico in time for their Day of the Dead celebrations.
There is no need for a promotion code, as the promotion will be automatically applied at checkout.
Making the most of our deal
A fee-free transfer is a great opportunity to maximize your money. When you send money home the two biggest costs are normally the transfer fees and the money lost on a poor exchange rate. Without the transfer fee, your recipient is guaranteed to get even more of your money.
Small World is also dedicated to keeping our exchange rates competitive: we are constantly monitoring our rates against those of the banks and our other competitors to offer you the best deal possible.
Make you first transfer before November 2
If you are a new Small World customer, your first transfer online will be fee-free as standard. Therefore, to make the most of the Day of the Dead deal, make your first transfer before Tuesday, November 2. You will then be able to access a second fee-free transfer as part of the deal.
Additionally, since fees are often calculated as a percentage of the money you send, a fee-free deal means you will save more money on larger remittances. Therefore, if you normally send smaller amounts more regularly, now might be a good time to take advantage of the fee-free deal and send a larger chunk of money to your loved ones.
