    Yesterday I purchased a money order from King Soopers (Boulder, Table Mesa) and the charge was $12.50 to send $100.00. So I guess I do not understand the fee range. Sixty-five cents?

      Hi Suzanne,

      It sounds like you did a money transfer, not a money order. With money transfers, you can send money electronically, and fees for that service vary a lot depending on where you send the money to. When you buy a money order, on the other hand, you pay for a paper money order, which looks much like a personal check. Money orders are generally inexpensive in grocery stores — they usually charge less than $1. I checked on Western Union’s agent locator, and King Soopers in Boulder does do money transfers as well. If you want to see if the money transfer price was correct, you can use Western Unions estimator to compare to what you were actually charged.
