I’m as patriotic of a Canadian as there is, but there are some areas that my friends south of the border have us beat. Remote Check Deposit (or “cheque” as we call it) is one of them.
Some banks in the United States allow consumers to scan their checks in using their desktop scanner or even their mobile phone (iPhone or Android) and upload it to the bank for deposit.
If that sounds good to you, there is a wiki that has a pretty comprehensive list of financial institutions that allow you to scan and upload your checks.
Do you see something missing from the list? It’s a wiki, so go ahead and edit it.
If you use your scanner or phone to upload checks, make me jealous and leave a note in the comments to let us know how well it works.
Also if you’re in another country and your banks let you upload checks/cheques, let us know that too.
