      it gets lost in the mail, the bank can check to see if it’s been

      cashed, and will cancel it for free and make out a new one for us.

      The $.59 Western Union ones won’t cancel unless they haven’t been

      paid out in 90 days, and you have to forfeit a % or dollar amount

      off the money order to cancel it. That can be a real pain in the

      something DOES happen, we’re covered by them. I know some banks can

      be more expensive. I have an account in my own name at 5th/3rd Bank,

      and they charge $5 for the money orders. I declined to get it there,

      and withdrew the money needed and got them at the credit union we

      bank at instead.
