  •  I googled: (2+ / 0-)

    "banks that charge a fee to cash their own check" and went down the google well for awhile.

    This fee is all over the country. Don't know when started
    What happened? How did I miss this?

    No way around it from what I found. Some grocery stores will cash a check if you spend ~$20.

    I did read one interesting comment:

    Charging a fee to cash a check drawn on the payee bank is tantamount to dishonor of the check — no matter how small the ‘fee’ — under the Uniform Commercial Code. A check is a type of negotiable instrument instructing the drawee bank to pay $X to the order of someone. Anything less than $X is dishonoring the instrument and (but for the extreme hassle of making the point) creating liability for the drawer (writer of check) or bank to the drawer for dishonor.
    WTF is happening to our country.
