REDWOOD CITY, California—Money transfer service myREMIT, which offers phone, online and over-the-counter remittance services through partner outlets, is keeping up its successful effort to reach more Filipinos in the United States.

MyREMIT, a Kapamilya Service of The Filipino Channel (TFC), this year introduced the Kapamilya Exclusive Deal, which offers a US$2 discount on myRemit transaction fees to U.S. subscribers of TFC on any platform.

“Our ongoing Kapamilya Exclusive Deal is our way of acknowledging and thanking the loyal subscribers of TFC,” said ABS-CBN North America Remittance and Cargo Marketing Manager Ray Olano.

“We are very enthused by how this promo was received by the subscribers. We will make sure that the promo offerings of myRemit will continue to show appreciation for their patronage of TFC.”

TFC myREMIT has also been active in community events. On July 27, together with TFC and StarKargo, it held the festive “Summer Show sa Island Pacific Cerritos” as part of the ongoing TFC Sama Saya Kapamilya event series.

Adobo Nation’s Ana Diaz of the “LA Chika” segment and Gelo of “Barangay USA” hosted the event, which featured singer Jackie Chavez, hailed as the Acoustic Gem of the Bay Area.  Fun activities included games and prizes plus an amateur singing contest that drew many musically inclined Filipinos in Cerritos, an affluent city in Los Angeles County where Filipinos comprise the third largest Asian population based on the 2010 U.S. Census.

“Our solid partnerships with respected Filipino business icons like Island Pacific Supermarket make our grassroots events outreach possible,” said Olano.

“TFC myREMIT will hold hands with like-minded establishments to reinforce our services to the Filipino community, making sure that our offerings serve their needs and, moreover, help them represent in the larger American society that they live in.”
