Remember back when you first got your checking account? Remember how excited you were? It was like a rite of passage! In many ways, it still is. You sign up for your account, make your minimum deposit and then you might get a few starter checks that have no actual number on them. Today, not many places will actually allow you to use those checks, but they made you legit! Then you were able to order your new checks right there at that bank. I remember the new accounts desk would have books full of checks to choose from. The problem is they were expensive and there were little to no options for ordering low cost checks anywhere.
Today, opening a new checking account is still exciting but you don’t have to order through your bank any more. Today, just doing a quick search on the internet for low cost checks will bring you many businesses that are affordable and easy to order from. Most of these companies, like ours, offer hundred upon hundreds of check design options as well as fabulous pricing on your check order.
If you are looking for the cheapest checks, the Safety Check has always been the cheapest. You remember them. They are the ones that are green, pink or blue and are simple, yet very effective. For additional savings, choose the non duplicate checks. You will get more in the box and they do run cheaper than having the duplicate.
Yes, it is sometimes easier to just have the bank place the order for you and have it taken right out of your account, but you will pay for that. Save some time and money and do your budget a favor by ordering your low cost checks online. It is easy and once you have it done the first time, reorders are a breeze.
