People Hate Writing Checks (But They Do It Anyway)

Thursday, March 27, 2014 - 7:39 AM
"With the increasing availability of mobile and online banking options, traditional checking account products like paper personal checks are falling out of usage. Online bill pay, peer-to-peer payment apps and other, more convenient ways of moving money are taking their place. That might seem obvious to a lot of people, especially younger, tech-savvy generations, but almost half of people in their mid-40s “never” write checks, according to a new survey by GoBankingRates."

I don't mine writing checks and I do it all the time.  I get my checks free and I happen to prefer having them for proof in the future rather than going on the internet to find copies of them.  My DD refuses to write checks so I guess she is more of the "modern" generation.  She even gets notified by the bank when she is running out of money on her Debit card if she tries to overspend.  I don't need anyone telling me I am running out of money.  I can take care of my own responsibilities.
