Traveler’s checks aren’t as widely accepted as they used to be. We checked the policies of many stores similar to Walmart, including Big Lots, Publix, Sam’s Club, and Target, and found that they also do not accept traveler’s checks. The only stores we called that do accept traveler’s checks are:
- Meijer: Meijer accepts traveler’s checks of $100 or less for purchases but requires that they are signed at the check-out counter and witnessed by a cashier.
- Costco: Costco accepts traveler’s checks at its warehouse locations, but not at its gas stations. You must be a member to shop at Costco, but membership is valid at all Costco locations worldwide, so you can visit the store even when you’re traveling.
Alternately, you can cash your traveler’s check if you’d like to use the money at Walmart and other stores. Money service stores like United Check Cashing and some grocery stores, including Food Lion and Giant Eagle, will cash traveler’s checks.
