That means every time you use your card as "credit" at a point-of-sale location or online, you'll earn cash back. Rebates are posted to your Checking Account monthly.

Money Order

A Money Order is a type of check intended to provide a safe alternative to sending cash by mail. Money orders are also a more trusted method of payment than a personal check, since it is required that the funds be prepaid for the amount shown on it. Merchants may welcome the extra security that being paid with a money order may offer.
