Once upon a time, I got two boxes of checks from Artistic Checks. Fast forward 10 years, time for another box of checks. I see prices for around $19 per box, prepare a re-order, and none of the coupon codes are working. They’re being accepted, but prices are the same.

I called their customer service line, tried to put together an order, the start tacking on fees and services without me asking, now we’re at almost $40 for one box. Turns out they were adding “EZShield” ID security and telling me I needed it to protect against fraud.

At this point, I smell a rat and call my bank, which confirms I already have this security with my bank account and debit card. I ended up buying directly through my bank, it came out a little more expensive than through Artistic’s original quote, and not as “pretty” as the nice designs offered by Artistic, but no hidden fees or “security” scams and these days my checks are almost exclusively for rent and don’t need to be pretty…
