Hurry up! Deals for Expats who want to send mobile credit abroad in June

Money leaving the country! But there’s not only money. In 2017, Latinos were sending more money than ever back home. Remittances as it’s called. Many countries rely on this money sent by expats. Globally, the values grew from $296 billion in 2007 to $445 billion in 2016, according to a new report released by the United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development.  And that represents about 15% of how much a migrant worker earns. But guess what! Besides money, there is also mobile credit from abroad. The best part about this type of long-distance gift is that there are real deals for expats.

On alone, there are daily promotions. And June is famous for deals for expats coming from Latin America and the Caribbean.
