How Are You Spending Your Mother's Day? #PayPalXoom

11:50 PM

I'll admit, the boys and I have never really done much for Mother's Day. Normally, we are on the road traveling, and it is honestly more of an afterthought. While I always make sure to send my mom a gift, it just was never a day that we did much for. This year however, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, so we will be at Disney World this Mother's Day! My oldest son is with me for a special mother son trip to also celebrate his 16th birthday. We arrived on Tuesday, and it has already been a truly magical trip, which led me to ask the question, how are you spending Mother's Day this year?

The first thing I packed for our trip to Disney Social Media Moms was my PayPal card. It has been a staple in my travel wallet since last year when the boys and I were stranded in Niagara Falls with no money whatsoever after my bank card number had been stolen. I had to have someone overnight me my PayPal card, and it has not left my side when traveling ever since. When it comes to convenience, time saving and security, they really can't be beat. PayPal is helping you stay secure and save money this Mother's Day. Still looking for the perfect gift? Check out these awesome discounts available at

In addition to helping me save money during Mother's Day this year, PayPal will be coming in extra handy pretty soon. The boys and I head overseas next month for an undetermined amount of time. Xoom, a PayPal service is going to help save me so much time and frustration, as well as help keep my money secure and my mind free of worry while we are over there. Security and peace of mind is at the top of my list of wants when traveling alone with four boys overseas, and Xoom offers that and so much more. 

Xoom powers international payments in more than 40 countries worldwide, and ironically, the number one recipients of Xoom payments are Moms. When the normal methods of sending money overseas can time-consuming and insecure, Xoom offers a fast and secure alternative. They offer instant disbursements, and you can track your payments through SMS alerts! This is going to save me so much time and worry while traveling with the boys. It also comes in handy to send money to your mom this Mother's Day should she live overseas. There really is no better way than with Xoom and PayPal

  1. I love PayPal but did not know XOOM was offered as a service. This is good to know as I could see it becoming handy.
