If you’re in Texas and prefer to write a personal check for your groceries, you can head to your nearest H-E-B. The Texas-based grocery store chain accepts personal checks as payment at all locations. Find out more about H-E-B’s check writing policy below.
H-E-B Check Writing Policy
H-E-B grocery stores accept personal checks as a form of payment. But, H-E-B does not accept starter checks, store associates at various H-E-B locations confirmed. To pay with a personal check, you’ll need to show a valid photo ID.
When you pay by check, you also have the option to get up to $50 in cash back at the register. To get cash back with a personal check, write the check amount for your total purchase plus the amount of cash you’d like to receive. For example, if you want to get $20 in cash back and your order comes to $22.35, you would write the check for $42.35.
Other forms of payment accepted at H-E-B include cash, debit and credit cards, SNAP benefits and EBT card (as we’ve previously reported), and H-E-B gift cards.
And that’s the H-E-B check writing policy. H-E-B stores accept personal checks — and you can get up to $50 in cash back when paying by check.
