    I'm about out of checks for my checking account and last time I ordered through Checks Unlimited it seemed like the box size had gotten smaller and the cost higher. Have been looking around a bit and noticed Wal Mart seems to have some good values. Wondering if anybody has had experience with them and how has it gone? Also any ideas on other sites to go to? Certainly security is important on this.

    Fee generation tool for banks. Quite expensive relatively speaking.

    Nope. Single checks. I think box cost $20 at the local bank(I'm in the interest bearing account, so maybe that's why they charge). Can buy at least 2 to 3 boxes of checks from outside vendors for that.

    I do for rent.

    That's it.

    Hate it when people write checks at stores. Join the 21st century and get a damn debit card

    Oh I do (however I avoid debit cards and use credit cards). I just write checks at home. Have not jumped on the electronic transfer out of bank account bandwagon partially because I like to look at the bills and feel it helps me control spending.

    Feed Bills,
    and whenever I pay a bill (Medical, Insurance, that type of stuff) because I feel like I can hold on to my money just a little longer.

    I just like to laugh when I see the word "checks."

    I like to write it as "cheques", makes me feel distinguished.

    I bought some online from Walmart about a year ago and had no problems. I'd use them again.

    The last time I got checks (a year or two ago) I went through WalMart online. Everything went fine--no complaints, and IIRC considerably cheaper than wherever I had gotten checks previously.

    I get that, but I'm still paperless. EFT doesn't have to be automatic.

    Going to have to do this soon...had not thought of wal mart.

    Sadly we still have a couple of bills that dont have online pay options.

    I do have a family member though that does use credit/debit cards nearly all of the time but I have seen them take a three ring binder of checks to stores. They also have never used an ATM...
