    Best place to cash a cheque? 10th Dec 10 at 11:05 AM
    I'm just getting back on my feet after going bankrupt in September - got a new job, just received my first pay cheque, have opened a Coop Cashminder account.

    My question is - do I pay the cheque into Coop or cash it?

    I know Moneyshop etc charge commission on cheque cashing but things are tight before Xmas and I don't know if I can risk the cheque taking a long time to clear.

    I'm trying to be more careful with my money so any advice greatly appreciated - best places to cash cheques, time cheques take to clear with Coop etc.

    My wages are only 94.50 BTW so I'm not rolling in it - yet!
