Lost or Expired Money Orders
Because QuikTrip sells Western Union money orders, you do have options for recouping your money if the money order is lost or stolen. Western Union has a money order customer request form that can be printed out and sent in with the receipt and a $15 nonrefundable processing fee. This process will be much faster if you have the original receipt from the money order purchase, so we strongly advise you to keep the receipt handy until you’re certain that the money order has been cashed.
Western Union money orders purchased at QT, or anywhere else, aren’t good forever. Western Union money orders are good for one year from the date of purchase.
