I have to mail a check to a vendor today. It’s for a pretty big chunk of money and I’m fearful of it going missing or something. I’ve mailed a few before with no problems but with the amount on this one I just worry. Is certified the best way to go? Should I fed ex or Ups letter it?

I would def do certified of some kind.
USPS Priority Mail might not be bad and might be cheaper. Just make sure you get tracking, signature confirmation and registere/certified.
Some way to know it got there and they, your vendor, recieved.

It should be fine – just confirm receipt of the check with the vendor a few days after mailing and keep an eye on your bank account. Most banks allow you to see a picture of the front and back of the check online when it is cashed, so you can make sure it was cashed by the right people. You can always stop payment or put a fraud alert on the account if the check goes missing or the wrong person cashes it.

I’d go USPS Priority flat rate envelope with delivery confirmation (around $6) or UPS if I had to mail it. Personally, I would see if I could do a bill pay through my bank.

I would never trust USPS, whenever mailing something of importance I always go fed ex. The tracking info they give you is far superior to USPS.. Im talking from hand to hand. They know which truck its on etc. You should go that route.
