This guy does a complete explanation about sending checks with BlueBird

On the other hand, CVS (at least in my area) doesn't have any register restrictions and more depends on the employee telling you if you can or can't. I've checked about 5 CVS's in my area, and 90% of the time they won't let you, but if you find some young teenager working the register he/she will most likely let you.
There was this one time at CVS when the cashier scanned it and I was seconds away from swiping my card, and then the manager literally ran over and stopped the transaction. I was so bummed - especially since it was either the 3rd or 4th CVS I tried. So close. It makes me wonder, though, if they do get into trouble if someone does run a VR with a credit card.
Fortunately, the message that pops up with the self check out with the CVS I go to is "No CVS gift card or Money Order allowed as payment option." I wonder why the register always ask the last 4 digits of our card number.
