Cheapest place to get money order - Because money orders are guaranteed by the issuer, you can't just write a check or use a credit card (they don't know if your check will bounce or if you'll file a chargeback with your card issuer). It's important to work with a name you and your payee trust – you don't want to get scammed, pay too much, or have your payee worry about whether or not the money order is legitimate. Course, if someone has an account with a favorable hold time policy, it might not be an issue… but many banks place a hold on all non cash deposits greater than 0, especially for their base accounts. Keep in mind that you might have to buy multiple money orders (for example, if you need ,000 and the maximum money order issue amount is ,000, you'll need to pay three fees to get three money orders).
