FTC Disclosure: I am an affiliate of Checks Unlimited, which means if you purchase checks or check accessories through my links I get a commission, at no additional cost to you. I have been a customer of this company for years, and personally use their products, so all opinions herein are my own and have not been influenced by the company.
Here is where to order checks for personal use or business, and how it saves you money and is really easy to order online.
I've mentioned to you before that I pay my bills weekly, as part of my weekly paperwork session, and during one of my most recent sessions, as I reached for my checkbook to pay some bills, I realized I needed to get more checks because I was almost out.
(Yes, you can pay some of your bills online, but sometimes it's easier to use checks, especially for irregular payments.)
So right then and there, as I did all my weekly paperwork, I went ahead and ordered several new boxes of checks from the online business I've been using for purchashing personal checks, and also business checks, for years -- Checks Unlimited.
Because I was re-ordering, and just wanted the same variety of checks again, it took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish, and then later I got them in the mail (you can see some of my pictures below of the packaging).
Since I keep using Checks Unlimited checks, have consistently been happy with the products I receive, and know I'm saving money compared with ordering my checks through my bank, I figured I should also tell you about them so you could use them too, if you wish.
After all, why not save money and have it be as convenient as possible to do something mundane, like getting checks delivered to you directly into your mailbox?
I'm not sure how many years I've been ordering checks from Checks Unlimited, but I know it's been quite a few because I've re-ordered at least 3-4 times now, and I don't go through boxes of checks too quickly. Instead, I only write a few checks a week, and that has lessened with time as I've begun to pay more bills online.
However, I still do use personal checks, and don't foresee getting completely rid of them anytime soon, so I'm glad I've got a place to order checks online that I trust, and provides quality products.
For me, I get plain boring checks, because to me they're just checks, a means to an end to pay my bills, but Checks Unlimited has lots of fun designs available if you enjoy sprucing your checkbook up.
I also don't tend to buy any of their accessories, such as checkbook holders, extra check registers, or address labels, although those items are available. As I've evaluated them I have personally decided that the accessories are more expensive than I want to pay for them.
What I recommend Checks Unlimited for is not the accessories, but for the checks themselves, which are much cheaper than if you order your checks through your bank.
I think because the checks are so inexpensive the company tries to suggests you purchase add-ons, but if you stay focused and only get the checks, and not the other stuff, then you'll enjoy quite a savings. (Below I've provided my best tips for saving the most when ordering from Checks Unlimited.)
The first time I ordered my checks from this online service I admit I was a bit nervous. This was partially because of how long ago I first ordered, because ordering anything online at the time made me a bit nervous. However, I also worried about providing this company with my bank information, which is obviously something you've got to do in order to get the checks.
However, the checks I've received from Checks Unlimited have worked just as well as the checks I used to get from my bank, and I've never personally experienced any type of security issue with them.
The company also has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, which makes me breathe easier, especially since the company has been around since 1986.
Ordering through the website is fairly easy, and the site guides you through the process, and helps explain where to find the information necessary to order your checks online, such as where to look on one of your current checks for things like the routing number.
There are also plenty of opportunities to review how the checks will look before you place your order, so you don't have to worry about typos or misspellings, unless you personally didn't catch them. The company prints exactly what you tell them to.
They also do a safety review before your order is printed to confirm that it's you ordering your checks, and not someone else, to prevent fraud.
While ordering the first time with Checks Unlimited was relatively easy, re-ordering more checks at a later time is super simple and quick. You can click the button at the top of the website for re-orders and as long as you don't want to change anything it takes hardly any time at all to get more, which made me quite happy.
I also receive my purchased checks through the mail, and have not experienced any security issues with delivery either.
The checks come in flat packages, as shown below. You get a flattened box, along with several books of checks for each box, that you have to put together to place your checkbooks in. The packaging does not show that it is obviously from a check printing business, so no one knows what the innocous looking package is as it sits in your mailbox, reducing the chance of enticing theft.
In my experience I've not encountered any security concerns with ordering or delivery of my checks using Checks Unlimited, and feel it is as safe as ordering through my bank, but much cheaper, and also more convenient.
Since I now own a business (this website, and the accompanying business related to it), I've also ordered business checks through Checks Unlimited, and have been just as pleased with the business checks as with the personal checks I've gotten more frequently.
While I've shared with you exactly why I continue to use Checks Unlimited for ordering my personal and business checks, and why I'll continue, I also want to be as honest with you as possible about the online ordering experience when you buy your checks with the company.
I think it's because the checks are so cheap, so they're like a "loss leader" for the company, and they try increase their profit for each order by getting you to purchase upsells and add-ons, like additional products, services, extra shipping costs, and more.
If you purchase these additional upsells and add-ons you're going to lose some of the total savings you get by purchasing your checks online, so my personal recommendation, and what I do for myself, is to just say no to all these add-ons and focus instead on getting the checks, and only the checks.
Specifically, here are my tips for saving money with Checks Unlimited that I jotted down to share with you as I ordered my last few boxes of checks recently.
Using coupon codes with your Checks Unlimited order will ensure you get the best value for your money.
It can be a bit confusing trying to decide which code saves you the most money, so I suggest adding the various codes you see below, or any others suggested on the Checks Unlimited website itself, one by one into the online shopping cart and then re-calculating the total, so you can ultimately use the code which saves you the most.
First I've listed the personal check coupon codes, and then below the business check codes.
I hope these coupon codes and tips will help you save yourself some cash and time when you next order your checks online!
