I was about to order a box a checks yesterday, since I am completely out. A box lasts about forever now that check writing is few and far between. I always remember checks ordered through the bank to be so expensive, so I was going to order from some online place. Walmart had some cheap checks for less than $10 with shipping. I was about to hit "order" and for some reason I didn't.
Well, guess what? My checking account comes with free check re-orders! Huh! I had no idea of what my account "benefits" are. Turns out I can also have a free small safe deposit box. That might be something to also take advantage of. I was just online changing my user ID and password (recommended with the recent debit card info theft) and noticed the option to "order checks". When I clicked on it there was mention that some checking accounts come with free checks. I determined what type of checking I had and discovered free checks. Love not spending money when I don't have to!
