Do you still use checks
« on: December 26, 2018, 05:00:01 pm »
I went to Safeway one day and I wrote a check. The cashier was surprised because people rarely use it. But if i'm going to spend money on the checks, Im going to use them.

I have one place, the hairdresser that I use a check for.  My little 25 pack of checks has been in there for almost 3 years.  I go only every 2 months LOL.

I don't write checks often at all. However, I like to have them handy. I have written checks to my grandchildren before on special occasions. The reason I do that is because those gift cards in the store charge a fee.

We used checks for almost everything like paying bills. My husband is a banker  and he wants it to be a traditional way to avoid many problems.

The only time I write a check is when I can't pay on line or pay by debit/credit card.
Have a wonderful day!

I honestly can't remember the last time I wrote a check. I still have some in my purse, but the address on them is from 3 moves ago! It's easier and faster to pay online.

I have only used a check a few times in my life. I think no more than five times and I think four out of the five times that I used a check was for direct deposit. It takes too much time to write checks when you can just swipe your card.

I haven't used checks in years.  However I had two things come up where I needed to either pay by check or pay my bank for a cashiers check so after years I just went ahead and got a small order of checks which will probably LOL last me the rest of my lifetime.

The only time I write checks these days is to charities. All purchases I make with my debit card.
