You know I thought of that too. They have put banks in our Wal-Mart's also. I wonder if they are not owned by Wal-Mart and they just operate under another name? I know this is out of left field but I can not help but think that Wal-Mart is owned by the government and probably owns the banks also. When things hit the fan I think that Wal-mart will be the hub of getting our goods and banking.

Alot of Walmarts are starting to have banks set up inside them. Woodforest Bank comes to mind. They might have an agreement with the occupying bank?

Looked on wikipedia and yahoo biz. Though the business relationship is prominently mentioned between Wal-Mart and woodforest I see nothing that leads me to believe that Wal-Mart owns that bank.

The people that always make a big fuss about ''my check is good dag gonnit'' are exactly the people that bounce checks.
Open a bank account for crying out loud!
Lots of banks have NO FEE, NO MINIMUM accounts for checking and savings with online bill payment for free also.
You have heard of these things called bank accounts, right?

Why do you need Wal Mart for cashing checks?
I just find it odd you would say that you need this service from Wal Mart.

Not everyone has direct deposit- People are still cashing checks at the Super Markets, Wal-Mart, etc.
