It seems to me that paper checks are going the way of the newspaper. What do you think?
no checks

    I use checks sparingly, probably less than once a month on average.

    Yes, for a few things, but nowhere near what I used to use. A box will last me 3 or 4 years as opposed to the 2-3 boxes per year I used in the past. I pay a few bills by check, make my church tithe by check, and pay with checks for things like Girl Scout Cookies or nieces' and nephews' birthdays and Christmas. Most of my purchases are made with debit cards, so I rarely have cash on hand, which makes checks convenient many times.

    That's what I do; debit cards. I don't like carrying a large amount of cash on me..

    They're still being used but it's gotten to the point where the question should be how insane a business is for NOT accepting debit cards!

    Many places really won't take paper checks anymore, but they do take debit cards. The world is a changin'!

    Paper checks are still a viable means of making a purchase at some places.Many of them have systems that electronically deduct the funds from your account immediately.

    True. I wonder if personal paper checks will ever really disappear?
