I am asking this because I have a check that I received in the mail, but I don't really want to cash it. I want to save it. I think it would be a bit easier to save money if it were in checks instead of cash.
Can I do this, or do checks have some kind of expiration date (in the US)?
I would cash the check, then get a money order made with it. That way it still isn't in cash form which may tempt you to spend it. This is how I saved up to buy my first car!!
Personal checks r good for a yr and others r usually 6 months unless otherwise stated
I believe it depends on the bank and who issued the check in the first place.
You are very welcome! I hope it works out for ya!
Usually after six months a check expires
Wow, that's a great idea! Thanks! :-)
Okay, thank you. :-)
Good idea :-)
