Don't assume that your bank has the best price on checks. You can often find checks for as much as half the cost from other check suppliers.

Be very careful when ordering checks from ads in the Sunday newspaper! I recently did just that, & after the checks arrived they sent me an ADDITIONAL bill for almost 50.00! They claimed I was not a first time customer because I had ordered checks from them once before 6 YEARS AGO,( which of course I don't remember that far back).They would not take the checks back & I had to pay the additional amt. SO BEWARE !

I would like help to find web sites to order personal checks. I found a couple that had good prices, but the shipping is high! I know postage has gone up, but holy cow, they can get carried away with it! Please help.

I use Message Products: http://www.mess … ts.com/Home.aspx

They're a little more expensive, but it's an inexpensive way to support worthy causes and help spread important messages.

The last batch I got I ordered online from Walmart. I was very pleased with them and the price.

I just went to walmart.com and pulled up their site directory. At the bottom they had this link for check printing:

I do not suggest ordering from an online phantom. After all, you are providing very confidential information to total stranger over a connection which may be not so secure. Last time I ordered checks, I thought I would save a few bucks by having them delivered via USPS (FedEx was much more expensive). Somehow my checks ended up in a stolen car being driven by a felon. Nice. So, now to avoid the extra charges and the trouble and angst associated with compromised banking information, the checks are delivered to the branch, and they call me to come and pick them up. So, poof. Your issue with high shipping costs is no longer an issue. Good luck.

Ordering Checks Online

Many of your local banks offer free checks, so why order them online and have to pay for printing and shipping costs?

If you still want to order them online here's a website FYI?
