    Re: Ordering Bank Checks

    I print my checks with quickbooks, and when I need will just tear one or two off for a hand written check if needed.

    $15 for 150 checks

Certainly security is important on this.
    I bought some online from Walmart about a year ago and had no problems. I'd use them again.

    Re: Ordering Bank Checks

    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.

    Re: Ordering Bank Checks

    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...

    Does your bank not have a bill pay feature? Mine just sends checks when an electronic payment isn't possible.

    Probably, will have to look into it...but that requires effort. I am OCD about the budget and bills so it may be best for me to manage everything.

    Re: Ordering Bank Checks

    I got checks from WalMart online about 1.5 yrs when I moved. Everything went fine and I'd recommend them.

    I think I've used about 6 of them. This was after I used about 30 of my previous checks at my old address.
    Seems like a waste but I don't think I'd feel comfortable not having a checkbook at all.

    We've paid our babysitters with gift cards we paid for with our debit card.

    Sorry, babysitter prolly was a bad term...not like 'going out for the night, let's call the babysitter', but we have a gal that comes in to our home 3 days a week for a few hours. Neither my wife or I work a normal 9-5...so 'daycare' isn't really accurate, and I just can't be so stuffy to say 'nanny'...but it's really like her wages, so I'm sure she wouldn't appreciate always getting wal-mart gift cards.

    Re: Ordering Bank Checks

    FYI if wanting ISU checks from USBank, you can get them, but have to do the customized school logos area and choose the new logo. If you just choose the school instead of the custom ones, it gives you the bird in the blender.

    I'm not sure why I just ordered 4 boxes of them since I only use them for paying rent, but I guess I just wanted new Iowa State ones for some reason. Oh well. Should last me a few years.
