Redeeming My WU Points Finally Made Easy

The My WU® membership program is unique, free and designed to reward you every time you send a qualifying money transfer or bill payment.

We recently updated it so that for every $1 spent on qualifying transfer fees1, members earn 1 My WU point! In addition, the updated transfer fee1 discount options allow you to enjoy deeper discounts when you send qualifying money transfers at or from our app.

To redeem your points, you can finally skip logging into the My WU® website or calling customer service. Simply redeem your My WU rewards on the go, with a text2! Text the following keywords to 88232 and you could redeem one of the transfer fee discount1 rewards:
