  2. Xoom

    we used xoom for years to get money every month from our U.S. bank to walmart here in mexico or you can have it sent to Elektra or a bank here. Walmart is great as they have a higher limit or elektra....the banks have too much red tape and long lines. Anyway, we switched to REMITLY recently because they usually have a better exchange rate. It has worked great for us. That is how we pay bills and buy groceries because using a debit card always charges us and international fee
  3. So funny, every 3-4 months for the past 3 years we have had to return to the U.S. to care for mother. So weve crossed about 15 times. Before we had our permanent of course we did it differently but when we learned that with our Permanent visa we MUST go into the INM before crossing and have them sign the paperwork being careful to write PERMANENT on the paperwork, then when return to Mexico to return that paperwork or we could LOOSE Permanent status. Well, we had to go in December in an emergency rush as mother in law needed us. Got in long line in car to cross at Reynosa on a friday night,,,,yuk...and thought oh well we just wont do it right this time. Family health was too important. So when we returned back to mexico we went into INM and explained that we didnt do the proper paperwork, apologized and asked if they could show in the computer that we had returned to Mexico and would we loose our permanent status? The guy in charge said "the only way you can loose your permanent status is if you commit a terrible crime" and "you dont have to stop each time and do paperwork. The green Permanent card allows you to move back and forth across the border freely". So, we did ask him to stamp our passports to show we had returned which he did. So.......does anyone have any input on this? Or is it just like in the U.S. govt employees dont communicate with each other and no one really knows what the rules are?
  4. wow,,,,thank you so very much everyone !!!! I didnt know there were so many places to get them......i love this webboard......i dont know what people did before the internet !!! But i know we managed to survive....hee hee
  5. Just a quick question: My mother in law is here for a few weeks and wants to get some postcards of this area. I have never seen any. Does anyone know if they exist and where we might get some? Thanks so much for your help.
  6. Good Internist?

    wonderful, thank you so very much CHILLIN and SM1MEX. that was so very helpful and we will make an appointment.
  7. Good Internist?

    Can anyone recommend a good Internist. I think i cannot tolerate gluten with the physical effects i am experiencing. A doctor that leans more towards natural and alternative medicine would be good too, as i dont want to have pills thrown at me, which has already happened, an antibiotic that did nothing, I just thought if its possible to diagnose it for sure, The diet is working somewhat but thought it would be good to get a "professional" opinion. I did a search here and didnt find anything, so if anyone has any input i would be so very grateful !!!
  8. I searched where and if Weight Watchers meets anywhere at Lakeside and only came up with La Bodega in 2013. Does anyone know if they are currently meeting and where and what time. I am bringing my mother in law down for 3 months. She has had the weight off for a long time but still likes to go to be encouraged. Thank you so very much for any info you can provide.
  9. Banco Azteca

    yes i totally agree and yes I am a "mattress" person....lol...i only have a very small amount in multiva for a certain reason....i dont like banks and never have.....
  10. Banco Azteca

    yes, it seems to be for the common Mexican. Maybe that is why they offer no fees, which is the way it should be. Yea for the common man. Imagine telling our forefathers that when they work, they need to go give their money to someone else to hold for them. Then when they want to go get some of their money to use they will have to pay the person to use their OWN money....crazy...but a fact we "modern gullible" people have grown use to......(you can probably guess i feel the same way about insurance)....and i do use both institutions so i guess Im one of the "gullible"....lol
  11. Banco Azteca

    yes, we loved them and went in to open an acct. Their computer would take my husbands passport but they tried many times to enter mine. It would never take it and they dont know why. They were so sorry. So we had to go to Multiva. Anyway, we may try again later.
  12. ok, great i have looked there but not alot so will keep looking. Thanks
  13. ok, thank you very much everyone. I really appreciate it.
