Fry’s Food Money Order Policy

Fry’s Food and all Kroger-owned grocery stores sell money orders. The money order service used by Fry’s Food is Western Union. Cash is the only accepted payment type for money orders at Fry’s Food. To buy a money order, you’ll need enough cash for the amount of the money order and the small fee, as well as a valid, government-issued photo ID. You can buy money orders at the customer service desk by filling out a money order form and presenting it to the cashier.

For customers with a free Fry’s V.I.P. Card, the fee for buying a money order is $0.69 each, and money orders can be purchased for up to $1,000. You don’t need a V.I.P. Card to purchase a money order, but the fee will be slightly higher without one — usually starting at around $0.80 for every $1,000, according to customer service representatives at Fry’s Food.

While Fry’s Food stores do sell money orders, they do not cash them. Most grocery stores that sell money orders are unable to cash them, although many stores can cash personal, payroll, government, and some other types of checks.
