Refund check and no bank account?

What do people without bank accounts do with their refund check? There's only one place in my area that will cash refund checks but they take 2% for a fee! If you get a good refund that ends up being kind of expensive. Let's say you get $2000...that's a $40 fee.

Why wouldn't you get at the very least a savings account so you can avoid fees?

Cash it at Walmart or the casino. Or for crying out loud open a savings or checking account
