    Ordering Bank Checks

    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.

    I should clarify... it's free with the Platinum Checking Account, which is what I have.

    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.

    1. Get a new bank.
    2. Who still writes checks?

    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.

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

I'm tired of getting stuck behind you stooges that waste time fumbling around looking for your debit card, having to re-scan it because the magnetic strip is dirty or cracked, and scribbling your signature down or keying in your PIN.
