Deposit Your Checks Online

I was just watching my local news, and there was a story of someone who was trying to cash their check in the bank. For some reason they gave this girl a really hard time about cashing her check. It was something to do with her ID. They kept her waiting for over 45 minutes before they finally cashed her check. There ended up being no reason for the delay. This poor girl just wanted to cash her check.

I've never been in a situation that bad, but sometimes it is a hassle having to go to the bank. Well now there is a new solution to this problem. A service called DepositNow lets you make bank deposits online. You can do this using an ordinary computer: Just pass a check or money order through a scanner, and transmit it to the bank electronically, without even leaving your home or office.

Unfortunately this technology is only available to banks in the United States. But to those in the US who are interested all you need is a special scanner for check scanning. DepositNow has actually developed there own scanner that is half the price of other companies scanners, and theirs also works as a scanner for all your documents. So you are getting a lot for your money.

This technology would be great for online businesses, or eBay power sellers, or anyone who handles a lot of checks. If you you decide to sign up use my blogs name: STAY AT HOME MOM as a promo code and you'll recieve $25.00 off the scanner!

  1. This sounds a little risky to me. I am not to trusting of fax machines so I definitely don't think I would trust copying and faxing checks to the bank! Too scary!

  2. I do it all on line now. I havet seen a teller in years

  3. Good decision taken by you suzie. Less burden on us as a banker.

  4. This sounds so much better than having to physically go to the bank--especially with increasing gas prices!

  5. I'll definitely have to look into this for my husband - thanks
