The Kmart Money Order Policy

Here’s the Kmart money order policy in plain language. Some — but not all — Kmart stores sell money orders. Your local Kmart is more likely to sell money orders if it has a MoneyHub services booth onsite. Not sure if your local store has a MoneyHub? Go to Kmart’s store locator and select a location. As you scroll down, you’ll find the in-store services available. Keep in mind, even if your local store has a MoneyHub, you may want to call ahead to confirm whether or not it sells money orders.

Kmart issues Western Union money orders. The fee to purchase a money order ranges from $0.69 to $1.25, depending on your location. You can purchase money orders in amounts up to $500, and you can purchase more than one if you need an amount over $500.
