The price of checks.....remember those? Little pieces of paper that you can give to others where in they get cash?
Last time I ordered checks was about 2 years ago (4 boxes) and I am down to my last book!!! EEEK! I should have ordered them a few weeks ago, but I didn't (gee...maybe I should have put THAT on my Just Do It list....).
My bank offered free checks as a courtesy to customers for years. But alas, all good things must come to an end. No more free checks. I tried to re-order them via the bank, and whoa baby....sticker shock!!! The "basic" check...no frills, no nuthin.....with shipping....was going to run over $50! No freakin' way.
After looking at a ton of sites, I found out that the checks themselves can be found fairly cheap...the handling and shipping on the other hand....not so much. I ultimately ordered 2 boxes of checks, and the total price came to $26. I could have just reordered with my bank.....oh well.
I have been writing more checks lately due to co-pays, but until my checks arrive, I will have to use my debit card to stretch this last book. But good grief.....talk about a shock and a half. I had no idea checks were so expensive!
