The new Chase ATMs are PHAT!

In a rare change of circumstances, I went to the Chase branch near my office not to withdraw money, but to actually make a deposit. Praised be Jeebus!

I got to the ATM lobby and cursed up a storm when I realized there was not a single deposit envelope to be found. Then, as I was in the process of storming out, I spotted a large cardboard advertisement touting Chase’s new, user-friendly ATMs and the fact that deposit slips and envelopes were no longer necessary.

After an about-face, I dipped my ATM card in one of the machines and was quite impressed. Not only are deposit slips and envelopes now so 2007 — you don’t even have to key in the amount of the check or checks anymore. Checks are fed into a slot and scanned, and an image of the check appears on screen saying, “The amount of your check is $3,936,811.09. Is this correct?”

OK, so my check was for slightly less money, but you get the idea.

Anyway, well done, and a tip of the hat to Chase and the manufacturer responsible for the new ATMs.

    Bank of America has been envelope free for some time. Big deal.

    The new system is great, except that my check got jammed in the Chase ATM today and now I have to wait a week for them to investigate. We’ll see what happens, I guess. The new system is supposed to save time but I had to spend almost an hour in the branch dealing with this machine error.
