Although pulling out your checkbook isn’t as common as it once was, that doesn’t mean checks have gone the way of the dinosaur. Even though online payments have become increasingly popular, some people still haven’t jumped on the bandwagon. What’s more, some businesses still require checks for payment, so it’s always a good idea to keep enough checks on hand.

If you find yourself running low on checks, ordering more is a pretty simple process. Better yet, some banks — including Wells Fargo — offer standard checks for free to some or all of their account holders. Keep reading to learn how to order checks from Wells Fargo and whether you’ll have to pay for them.

  • Costco: Costco members can order checks at a discount via Harland Clarke and get free standard delivery. For Costco Executive members, an order of 200 Blue Safety checks costs $15.30. For Costco Gold Star/Business members, the cost is $19.13.
