Hi Sunny,
Not sure how many cheques you ordered but I always order online and save money. The banks charge way too much for their cheques. Here is a link that you should "check out" next time you need to order cheques.

I don't even know why you would need cheques in this day and age as everything can be done online, through e-transfers or paying debit or credit card. If you do need an occasion cheque, it would have been better to get cheques with your credit card as the credit card companies rarely charges for those

I haven't order cheques since 2017 - it last me long. I just need them to pay my rent.

hum. yeah, I`ve used cheque only to pay rent too and these cheques are going to last you 10 years, but it sucks they charge so much for nothing. That said, they are free for me at TD, even though it's written a price when I order through easyweb.
TD can also give you free generic cheques that you have to pencil in your account number. They give you those when you open a new account but you can ask for more any time, afaik.

Sunny said...

Yeah, but a banking account is not free at TD. I currently pay for mine, quite a low fee, but that's because I am not leaving any money in.

Anyway, thank you all for the tips on cheques, seem like it's quite a sensitive topic.

 

Thank you
