Alternatives to cash

Money Orders

Money orders are used for a variety of purposes. They are simply a guaranteed cheque, accepted readily as cash. Money orders are available for $5.00 each. Golden Members can obtain Money orders for $2.50 each. Features include:

  • Available in Canadian or U.S. funds up to $1,000
  • Accepted nationally and internationally
  • Come complete with a carbon receipt
  • Can be traced if lost or stolen

Primary Orders

Primary orders are similar to Money Orders except that they can be purchased in any denomination with only a 0.15% fee placed on the purchased amount (minimum fee: $5.00).

  • Available in Canadian funds with no limit
  • Come complete with a receipt
  • Replaceable if lost


U.S. Drafts

U.S. Drafts are similar to traveler’s cheques except that they can be purchased in any denomination with only a 0.15% fee placed on the purchased amount plus the exchange rate ($5.00 for regular members, $2.50 for golden members).

  • Available in U.S. funds with no limit
  • Accepted nationally and internationally
  • Come complete with a carbon receipt
  • Can be traced if lost or stolen

Wire Transfers

Traveling and find yourself in need of cash? Money can be wired directly to any financial institution you enter (credit unions are less expensive.) Within Canada, money can reach you in as little as 10 minutes to 2 hours (if requesting money from a credit union). Money can also be wired outside of Canada, but expect a substantially longer wait depending on where you are requesting the money from.
