Do Banks Provide Free Checkbook Registers?

Banks provide free checkbook registers for new accounts, and many provide additional registers free of charge to existing account holders at branch locations. Additionally, when depositors place an order for a new set of checks, banks typically include a free register.

Paper checkbook registers are for more than just checks. When used properly, they provide a real-time record of every transaction, including checks or online debit card purchases that can take 24 hours or more to post to an account. Failing to keep a real-time register can result in an account ending up with a negative balance, causing overdraft fees, bounced checks and declined debit card transactions.
