For those who don’t already do this

So, I’ve just used Transferwise for the first time. They’re doing the usual thing of asking satisfied customers – and I am satisfied, it was cheap, easy and efficient – to spam the news around the place so that they gain more customers.

If you go through this link and sign up and make a transfer etc then you get either a free transfer if it’s under £500. Or summat like that, make sure you understand the freebie on offer. And the more of you who do that then the more I get as a commission to spend upon beer.

My commission doesn’t cost you anything.

So, err, you know, as you wish. You use them, I get paid. And yes, I really have just used them and it did work and it was cheap – saved several hundred euro as against the usual bank exchange rates.
