cheques / chequebooks?
I took a look at the Padlet that’s open for ideas for this post and noticed this suggestion. It even came with its own questions so this post practically writes itself.
The whole notion of payments has changed over the past year for us. Around here, most payments at the point of sale has been Visa since our banker adviser suggested this particular card and the rewards that you get for use. Even a drive through at Tim Horton’s where our typical order would be a medium black coffee and a small black coffee is paid by tap at the window. We’ve also noticed, from other purchases, that the limit per purchase has increased. I’m guessing it’s to reflect the new reality.
Even buying gasoline is a tap away at most pumps. I do have to do a “grrrrr” as Canadian Tire pumps usually don’t like Visa tap. But Mastercard has never been an issue.
I had to smile when I read these questions because I’d be hard pressed to answer them accurately. I’m sure that we have a chequebook around here somewhere and I could hazard a guess as to where it is but I don’t use it and can’t remember the last time I did.
So, for a Sunday, what are your thoughts?
- When was the last time someone gave/sent you a cheque?
- When was the last time you wrote someone a cheque?
- Do you still have a chequebook?
- If so, when the cheques in your chequebook run out, will you order replacements?
- When was the last time you went to the bank to deposit a cheque?
- Have you ever use a program to print personal cheques directly from your computer?

And, if you have a great idea for a Sunday morning topic, please add it to the Padlet or reach out to me personally with it.
