Kwik Trip Money Order Policy

Kwik Trip sells MoneyGram money orders, although it doesn’t cash money orders of any type — including those originally purchased at Kwik Trip.[1]

I contacted Kwik Trip stations in Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin to confirm this information.


You can purchase money orders worth up to $500 at Kwik Trip stations.[1]

Some locations limit you to purchasing one money order per day, while others allow customers to buy two, which means you may be able to purchase up to $1,000 total in money orders per day.[1]


Kwik Trip charges a fee ranging from around $1 to $1.75 per money order, depending on the location.[1]

This means that if your local Kwik Trip allows you to buy two money orders, you’ll pay this fee twice when doing so (for a total cost of about $2 to $3.50).[1]


You don’t have to present an ID or enroll in any money services program to buy money orders at Kwik Trip.[1]

There’s also no minimum age requirement when purchasing a Kwik Trip money order.[1]

Keep in mind, though, that you can only purchase money orders with cash. You can’t use a debit card, credit card, or personal check to buy money orders at Kwik Trip.[1]


You can buy MoneyGram money orders at Kwik Trip any time during regular station hours.[1]

This includes Kwik Trip stations that stay open 24/7.[1]

How to Fill Out a Money Order

After purchase, it’s a good idea to fill out your money order right away so someone can’t fill it out to themselves and cash it if you misplace it.

First, enter the name of the person or title of the business receiving the money order in the “Pay To The Order Of” section.[1]

Next, sign your name in the “Purchaser” section and write your address on the specified line.[1]

See more details (including a video example) on how to fill out a money order.

Tip: Be sure to include any relevant information when using money orders to pay bills or for other official purposes on the front of the money order. This could include account numbers, “ATTN: XYZ,” or relevant dates.[2][3]

You should also hold onto the receipt until the payment clears in case you or the recipient lose the money order and you need a replacement.[4]

      Hello, Debbie! You can check the status of your money order and, if it’s eligible, submit a request for a replacement at MoneyGram’s website. You’ll need the serial number and dollar amount from the money order. If you encounter any issues checking the status, you can also contact MoneyGram directly for assistance using its contact form. Best of luck!
