Full Answer

The following information is accurate as of December, 2014, and is subject to change without notice:

  • There is a $3 fee to cash a check up to $1,500, and a $6 fee to cash checks from $1,501 to $5,000 at Walmart. A customer has to show a valid picture ID and enter their Social Security number using a PIN pad at the register to cash a check.
  • During tax time, from January through April, Walmart will cash tax refund checks up to $7,500. Regular fees apply for these checks.
  • In order to cash a check, the check must be pre-printed, and if a customer loads the money on to his or her Walmart MoneyCard, the reload fee for the card is waived.

Cashing a check at Walmart has its benefits. There is no registration, and a customer gets the cash immediately, unlike at the bank where it can take more than 5 days to cash a check. This is the perfect solution for those who cannot get a bank account, or for those who simply do not want to be bothered with the bank.

    What are some places that cash personal checks?

    A:

    Places that cash personal checks include banks, check-cashing businesses, convenience stores and supermarket chains. The ideal place is either the bank of the recipient or the bank of the person who wrote the check (the bank where the money comes from). There will most likely be no fees charged if check recipients go to their own banks, but fees are likelier at the bank of the check writer.
