Cashing a Money Order

Any Dillons location with a Money Services center will be able to cash a money order for you — but only if it’s from Western Union. According to our communications with the company, it is company policy to “call in” the money order to Western Union to verify its authenticity before cashing.

It’s free to cash the money order if you’re cashing it at the same Dillons store where it was purchased. If the money order was purchased at a different location, you’ll have to pay a $3.50 fee for money orders under $2,000 or a $6 fee for money orders $2,000.01 to $5,000.
