    Que Le Vaya Bien....What's The Appropriate Response?

    My understanding is that the proper response to "Que le vaya bien" is simply "gracias" and that's the end of it. As the original poster said, we've been told that it's directed to the person "leaving", not the person "staying". Most Spanish speakers here in San Juan say "Que descansen" when they are leaving and we say "Que le (or te) vaya bien" and they say "gracias" and leave. And, of course, "Si Dios quiere" is inserted here and there.

    Using Coppel as a bank

    Actually the US bank doesn't charge a fee for checks, nor the Mexican bank unless it's built into the exchange rate, which is too complicated for this old brain to comprehend. And yes, I understand that a money transfer company would have to charge a fee to stay in business. Not trying to argue, just to understand the options.

    I imagine that those sites charge a fee.

    Using Coppel as a bank

    How interesting. I deposit US checks at Bancomer and it always takes 10business days to clear, although it clears my Colorado account in 2 days.
  7. I don't have a po box with anyone. If possible I have things shipped directly to my home. If it's an item that doesn't ship to Mexico I use either Sol y Luna (charge 1/2 the value) or Estafeta (3.50/pound), whichever is cheaper.
