Will Deposit@Mobile work with Money Orders?

I work part time as a barista, and I make tips on a daily basis, which I always deposit to my savings. However, shortly after opening a USAA Savings account, I realized there aren't any ATMs in my area that deposit cash. But I have heard that you can you can use the Deposit@Mobile feature to deposit money orders you can get from any post office.

Is this true?


Yes it is true
No, guaranteed funds such as money orders and cashier's checks cannot be used for remote deposit.

Yes money orders can be deposited via the mobile app

If you're  unsure I suggest you get the facts directly from a USAA Rep they're is a Contact Us link at the top of the site and they will confirm

yes, i just deposited 2 money orders today.. USAA has definitely improve their services.

Hey @TK13, glad to hear your deposits went smoothly :) Have a good evening.
