BALIKBAYAN CASH VIA WESTERN UNION
Send Company, a leading customer service firm based in New Jersey, is pleased to announce its partnership with Western Union, the most recognized and trusted name in international money transfer. Send Company and Western Union will launch a series of initiatives geared toward their growing Filipino clientele. Their joint project nicknamed “Send Balikbayan Cash via Western Union,” will emphasize the industry giant’s services and years of commitment to the Filipino community.
Send Company continues its leadership as the most innovative and customer-centered company in the balikbayan industry. This partnership with Western Union is a major victory for the young firm. It is as meaningful as their agreement with UPS, according to Joel Belen, president of Send Company.
Western Union is a world leader in money transfer. It facilitates transactions through more than a quarter-of-a-million agent locations in over 200 countries and territories. Its 6,000 retail positions in the Philippines give it the most area of coverage in the country. Its service is fast, safe and reliable.
“Western Union is more than a leading remittance company. It’s an institution,” says Belen.
155 years of service excellence is an impressive achievement. Like UPS, this world-class corporation is an American business legend. Few companies reach that milestone.
And Western Union’s bold and pioneering spirit lives on. Throughout its history, it embraced changes in business trends and fostered innovative ideas in technology, long distance communication and commerce.
Western Union and its employees give generously of their time and talent to their community and various humanitarian causes. They continually raise millions of dollars to aid relief organizations around the globe.
Western Union works with civic and professional organizations to create career development and training programs for job seekers. They sponsor the Philippine Nurses Association of America and its sub-chapters. They award scholarships to hardworking, non-traditional students, immigrants, refugees and single-parents in the United States. Western Union is always looking for ways to give back to the community. Western Union recognizes those who demonstrate unwavering determination to reach their goals in spite of overwhelming odds.
“There are several companies offering remittance services to the Philippines. Western Union is in a league of its own. We are delighted they granted us this business opportunity. We take great pride in our ability to create highly personalized services for the Filipino consumers. To be chosen by a respected organization makes this project very special indeed,” says Belen.
The balikbayan box industry has never been so exciting. With piercingly sharp slogans like How does your balikbayan box stack up? and original signature products like Balikbayan Boxers, Send Company has carved out a truly unique niche in this crowded field. They are capturing market share with first rate service plus a touch of wit and humor. Customers look forward to Send’s arrival in their home state. To earn the support of Western Union and UPS is a profound testament to the dedication of entrepreneurs behind Send Company.
Starting September 1, 2006 to December 31, 2006, when a customer sends money to the Philippines via Western Union, he or she will receive $5 rebate for a Send Balikbayan Box via UPS. To qualify, the customer just needs to attach the original Western Union receipt to the Send Box declaration form plus payment for the shipment. Send Company and Western Union will offer the “Take 5” promotion to customers in the northeast, not including NJ and NY metro areas.
In the NJ and NY metropolitan areas, Send Company is offering amazing deals for the holiday season. Instead of paying the $79.95 normal rate to send a package to Visayas and Mindanao, eligible Western Union customers will pay just $44.95. That is a huge savings of $35 per shipment instantly.
Value and savings don’t end there. Western Union customers get more perks. Senders will pay just $3 for each brand new Send Balikbayan Box during the promotion period. That is at least 40% less than regular price. To qualify, just use Western Union to send money to the Philippines between 09/01/06 to 12/31/06.
In addition, five Western Union customers from September to December will be eligible for free shipment of Send Balikbayan Box. The names will be announced on 01/12/07. For this promotion, all entries or Western Union receipts must be postmarked on or before 12/31/06.
Promotion offers vary by state. More special deals and discounts are featured in the Send Company website.
