HOW TO TRANSFER MONEY BACK HOME?
« on: April 04, 2019, 04:03:57 pm »
Will be going back to US after 7 years of living in Korea. I've saved up a good amount of money that I want to bring back to the US but don't want to spend too much on FOREX and transaction fees. What'd be the best way / cost the least to bring money back to the US?

Refer to the last few pages of this thread: http://www.waygook.org/index.php?topic=1770.0

Some analysis of percentages by myself and a couple other posters there.

Keb cashiers checks. Or open citibank accounts.

Use Bitcoin. It's slowly rising so you'd make a few bucks. Transfer costs 0.50 ct.

How long the hold is on a deposit is related to your relationship with the bank.
If you donít know, ask what your status is, and then for an increase.

Mine donít. Maybe bank check is more accurate. After I deposit them it takes two days to clear. They are written on bank of ny checks. 송금 수표
