THis is correct. Many credit cards charge a % of the cash advance as a “surcharge”. I have lines of credit through American Express (Centurion Bank) and BankOne. For me at least, they don’t charge a surcharge.
Also, you should verify that they don’t charge you for using the convenience checks. Many banks do.
