Where Can I Cash My EFS Check Near Me?

You can cash an EFS check at most truck stop merchants during the store’s usual working hours. We suggest taking a valid form of government-issued photo ID when attempting to cash your EFS check.

You can get your EFS check cashed at any of the following truck stop merchants:

  • Pilot Flying J Travel Centers (Limit:  $999.99)
  • Love’s Travel Stops (Limit:  $999.99)
  • TA-Petro (Limit:  $300)

Can You Cash An EFS Check At A Bank?

You can cash an EFS check at most local banks such as Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and the U.S. Bank.

However, you will be required to bring the EFS check to the local bank’s branch for review and verification before the bank cashes it for you. 

Make sure to carry your government-issued photo ID with you when you visit the branch for this purpose.

What Is The Fee For Cashing EFS Checks?

Most truck stop merchants and banks will charge either a flat nominal amount for cashing an EFS check, or a percentage of the check’s value for cashing your EFS check.

For example, Love’s Travel Stops will charge $3 or 3% of the check’s value, depending on which amount is greater, whereas Road Ranger will charge $3 for every $100.

In some cases, the merchants may waive the fee completely if you buy a minimum amount of fuel or other maintenance services from them. 

You can contact the individual merchant or bank directly to find out more about their fee policy.

Conclusion:

Walmart is not currently able to cash EFS checks due to their money center check policies, but they are able to cash a range of other checks, such as tax refund checks and government checks.

To cash out an EFS check, it is recommended that you visit a bank, or a local truck stop merchant. For any check cashing process, you will need to supply a valid government photo identification first so please remember to bring one with you.
