Way to Send Money to Saudi Arabia?

Post by Gardner's Son » Tue Feb 11, 2020 4:46 pm

I need to send money ($1,500 US or so) to a person living in Saudi Arabia. I went to my bank and they said it would cost $180 to send it. I'd hate paying 12% in fees. What other ways can you suggest? American Express? Pay Pal? Etc. Many thanks!

Western Union or money Gram, both are much cheaper than banks
