Cheaper To Mail Me A Stamp?

A few months back I received this check from Citi:

Citi Check 12 Cents

Nice touch Citi. 12 cents. It cost more to send me that check than the check is worth. And how much will it cost me to cash it? Even if I mail it to the bank instead of driving to the bank it’ll cost me a stamp.

I think I’ll just hold onto it as a way of understanding the true nature of big organizations. Still not as funny as an old Citi co-worker received a check for 0 cents. Yes. Zero. How do you cash that?
