Debit cards 02 Sep 2004
I was able to use my RBC debit card in Junin, a town three hours outside BA, and of course in the city too. Keep in mind the fees are high though -- in Canada at my bank it's $5.00 per international debit.
As long as your PIN number is four digits that is, it should work internationally.

Credit Cards 02 Sep 2004
Yeah they're pretty good at credit card acceptance. Towards the end of my mission we were issued master cards for our weekly "allowance" (Or rather monthly) we would often go to the grocery store to use it, but don't rely on having a credit card. Make sure you always have 10 dollars (or the recent inflation equivalent) in change and 40 somewhere in cash for in case the ATMS are busted or you can't get to one until next district meeting.
They had one that I remember at the bank in Pontevedra, at the grocery store in Rafael Castillo and several downtown in Caseros.

Credit Cards 01 Sep 2004
"Visa is everywhere you need to be," or at least in the big cities. I wouldn't use my debt because I don't know if they are set up to recieve or accept your pin number. But credit cards in the Capital Federal are accepted.

Can a credit card be used in Buenos Aires? 01 Sep 2004
Can I take and use my own personal credit card? I also have my own personal debit card and was wondering if it could be used in Argentina? I would appreciate if someone who knows would get back to me, thank you so much,

Definately is kinda a strong word It would be nice, but I guarantee if you bring one you'll be the only one in your zone who has one.

Sleeping Bag 26 Aug 2004
You'll most definitely want to get a sleeping bag. But wait until you get to the country to buy one to avoid packing it around. That way if you don't feel like you need one, you don't have one, but you can still get one. Good luck.

Sleeping Bag 25 Aug 2004
I was in the 2nd best of three (in my opinion North would have been the cleanest - I was in West) Buenos Aires Missions. When we were in Campo during zone conferences 30-40 missionaries would spend the night in the same pench on chigger-infested matresses. It would have been nice to have had a sleeping bag, but you probably won't need it and will find that it is inconvenient to travel with. Contact your mission president. You have time.

Sleeping Bag 25 Aug 2004
I am entering the MTC on Oct 13 and on my list of things to take it listed a sleeping bag! Do I really need to take one and if I do can I buy one when I get into the country!!!

The Food 07 Jun 2004
Hey, a couple questions about the food. How often do they cook for themselves, and when they do, what kind of things do they cook? Do they have a maid or someone that ever cooks for them? Are there common spices and things found at a store?

Mission Questions 27 May 2004
Is this mission all in the big city of Buenos Aires or is it spread out a bit?
Can you tell me how safe the water is to drink in the mission?
Are there many things available to buy? (Toothpaste, shampoo, winter boots, etc?)
Do you use a sleeping bag?
What are the most important things to bring that are not on the list? Thanks for answering!

Pilar and Pavon 12 Sep 2003
I served in the Argentina Buenos Aires North Mission, 1986- 1988, before the split that created the west mission. The areas that I served in, that I believe are part of the west mission now, were Pontevedra, Parque San Martin and Pilar. At the time Pilar included Derqui, Tortuguitas and points unknown at the time. We had a baptism from Pavon while I was in Pilar. It was one hour or more by colectivo from Pilar to Pavon.

Any updates from recently returned missionaries who served in these areas would be appreciated. Both the North and West missions were/are wonderful. Those currently serving or have been called to these missions are very blessed.
