Sending money US to UK

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My niece is off to Uni at Exeter soon and my wife wants to send her a gift of cash.  Do you "20-somethings" on here have suggestions of an easy way to do that. They both have iPhones, but apparently Apple cash is only a US thing. We have Transferwise but didn't want to get too complicated for just 100-200 quid if there's something easier than getting all her bank details. 

 

Or if you were 18 years old, would you use an Amazon gift card or some other gift card? Ideas please for easy gifting US to UK.

Thanks for the comments.  Yes, I know Transferwise is reliable and I've used it to move bigger sums from the U.K.  Was mostly curious if there was something new out there like Apple cash, Zelle, etc that worked internationally.

Sadly. I don't think so. Cashapp doesnt exist in the UK.

 

Look at Monzo, dont know if theyve sorted the usa side out but they were doing so in June.

Amazon gift cards would most definitely be a good gift for an 18 year old (or a 34 year old, in case you decide you want to surprise me too 😆) - everyone I know orders frequently from Amazon and there’s loads of odds and sods you have to buy when you first move away to uni.
