Check this out ~ even SpongeBob Squarepants checks are at ChecksintheMail.com!

I am one of the few that seldom use my check card ~ I still write checks for almost everything. I have ordered checks from three different online sites, with the latest one being the Checks in the Mail Online Store.
FINDING WHAT YOU NEED
1. The EZ-check finder which list all of the designs by name.
2. The bar on the side of the page with 2 main categories, each with multiple subcategories ~
Hip & Cool
Hobbies & Interests
Deposits / Registers
Stationery & MORE!
Prices vary by the style you pick. All check orders include 20 deposit tickets and a check register.
First-time orders also include a FREE vinyl checkbook holder. You can purchase the accessories alone or with a check order.
When you find a product you are interested in you click on the checks name or picture to get more information and prices.
Singles - 5 pads/200 checks per box.
Duplicates - 5 pads/150 checks per box.
Now a word on the prices ~ I HAVE to buy duplicate checks because both my husband and I carry checkbooks and so we are seldom 100% sure of what our balance is. That is where the duplicate checks come in handy, we always have a copy of all the checks ~ and their dollar amounts. So anyway, the cost of the duplicate checks is of course higher. For example on the SpongeBob checks ~
Singles - 1 box $9.99
Singles - 2 boxes $19.98
Singles - 4 boxes $39.96
Add duplicates are $3.00 more per box so 4 boxes of Duplicates would cost $51.96.
These checks are from the Elite and are more expensive than some of their other choices. They have some, many actually that go for $7.99 for 1 box of the singles. again, the duplicates are $3.00 more per box. On these styles, the 4 boxes of Duplicates would cost $43.96.
Note: If this is your first order, from them or any other check company ~ DO NOT ORDER UNTIL YOU SEARCH FOR DISCOUNT CODES! I have gotten 4 boxes of Duplicates for less than $20. that is the hard part ~ they all have great deals on first time orders and so it is a real shock to have to pay so much more for a reorder.
To purchase an item, you check the select box next to items(s) you want and then click on the ADD ITEMS TO CART button. You can then continue shopping or head to checkout.
Once you are ready to checkout you need to give all the regular billing and mailing information. If this is your first order you will need to send a voided check via mail or in a fax. Even after getting the check, they verify it all with your bank. This is done of course for your own protection.
You are able to track your order by Email or calling 1-866-639-2432.
There are four shipping options available at Checksinthemail.com ~
For my order of 4 duplicate boxes the shipping prices ran ~
2nd Day $11.50
Standard shipping should have your checks arriving about 14 business days after you order. DHL should be there in 7-8 business days, 2nd Day in 5 business days and Overnight in 4.
Even though there is a charge for the DHL I would recommend that because it is a bit faster and a lot safer. Since I buy four boxes at a time, any other shipping option can have them arriving on four different days. The DHL option has all the order sent together and given how often checks are stolen out of mailboxes, I'll pay the extra. If I was only buying one box, I would go for the FREE standard shipping.
~~ ** ~~ ** ~~ 2BUZY'S FINAL THOUGHTS ON THIS SITE ~~ ** ~~ ** ~~
The Checks in the Mail Online Store is easy to navigate, offers many choices and lets you to fax in your info which allows you to get your checks faster.
I like the fact that they also sell accessories which can be bought with an order or on their own. With the SpongeBob collection you can not only get address labels but a coin purse, tote etc. Too fun.
I am giving them a high 4 stars ~ stopping short of five stars because of the higher cost on reorders. I understand that they offer you a first time deal to get you to try their product. I just believe it is equally important to offer returning customers a deal ~ a sign that you appreciate their service.
