Where can I get a money order?

If you don’t have a checking account or have run out of checks, you may need a short-term way to pay bills or other expenses. A money order is a great solution. Like checks, money orders are widely accepted as a secure form of payment.

You can get a money order at post offices, banks, credit unions and at stores that offer financial services. Some banks and credit unions provide money orders to their account holders without charging a fee. In those cases, you would only be required to pay the face value of the money order itself. Otherwise, expect to pay the face value of the money order plus a fee. At Check `n Go, the fee for a money order is 99 cents or less!

If you should lose or damage a money order, immediately notify the issuer. You should be able to have the money order replaced in exchange for a fee.
