How often do you use paper checks?
I have a box of checks that was issued when we moved here seven years ago. Still on the first pad.

My wife writes paper checks all the time, since she still pays most of our bills through the mail. She doesn't trust the internet for such regular transactions.

Reasonable. I paid the rent through BOA's "bill pay" system. Then one day the money was deducted, I had a "confirmation" number, and the landlady didn't get a deposit in her account. BOA has never refunded the money or explained what happened to it. Evidently the "confirmation" number was valid, but it doesn't really mean anything.

I bank elsewhere now.

I couple times a month. Sometimes more for an out-of-the-ordinary transaction.

They are a giant pain in the ass.
I try to never use them.
The one place that I have to pay by check I now pay in cash.
When I can't do that I get a money order.
They used to sit on our checks for weeks.
I can't blame them they were a mom and pop organization.

I have 2 groups I belong to that are too small to be set up for e-checks so that means a maximum of 2 paper checks and 2 postage stamps annually. I may just start handing them cash instead.

I don't actually use cash much any more either. Almost everything is debit card. In EPay We Trust

Several times a month. We've shifted to paying a lot of bills electronically, though.

Many of my students pay me using checks, too.

Very rarely, I believe I have used the current book for 3 years now.

My lawn service is owned by an old couple. She's in charge of the money. She won't take checks, she won't even take money orders. They do a good job so I just stock up on cash.

RE: How often do you use paper checks?
About once a year .......

BUT, it NEVER FAILS, when I'm in line at a convenience store, AFTER their purchase is made and rung up, THEN the idiot in front of me, starts to fumble around in their purse, starting to look for their checkbook, and then starts to write out their check .... THEN also has to start looking for their ID .... waa waa waa. Laugh out load

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
