Are there any MO that USAA doesn't like, and which does it prefer?
USAA has been great for me in terms of not caring that I'm depositing a bunch of money orders. My main volume isn't really through money orders, but I used to deposit at least 2 $500 orders at least once every three days for the span of about a month. No adverse action.

In terms of the types, I've only ever gotten one Money Gram, but it was such a horrible process to deposit. The app kept telling me I needed to take the picture. And the ink wasn't even faded, in my opinion. I had to try at least four times to get the deposit accepted.

I've deposited many Western Union orders, and they are mostly fine. I occasionally have to retake the picture, but that's infrequent. And I usually only have to retake it once.
