Yes, I cash out by check and have done so for 5 years. With that said, there was a brief period of time I cashed out using alertpay.
I've never had a problem with receiving check by mail.
I don't know where you are but I will tell you I am in TN and once the check is processed, it takes about 4 days to receive it.
Checks are processed only on the first Monday in the month.
