8 Ways to Sidestep the Chase No-Cash-Deposits Policy

8 Ways to Sidestep the Chase No-Cash-Deposits Policy


seattlepi.com

Ever since Chase ended its policy of allowing people to make cash deposits into accounts other than their own, angry consumers have expressed frustration and anger over the move. Make people get money orders if they want to deposit $10,000 or more. Or let customers have a list of people on their account that are allowed to deposit money once they show an ID. Since March 3, Chase customers wishing to make a cash deposit into a personal account not only have to provide an ID, but now must also be an authorized signer or owner of the account. Whether you're a parent hoping to deposit money into a child's account, a friend needing to help out a loved one, or a relative looking to send a one-time monetary gift, Chase's no-cash-deposits policy might severely affect the way you send money. Telling your loved one to open a Chase account might work if, say, you want to send money to a child who has no bank account currently or if your loved one is unhappy with his or her current bank. Why should you force a loved one to open a Chase account just to transfer money to that person with your hard-earned cash? Adding an authorized user essentially gives the individual access to your financial account. Sending someone money via a cashier's check might be an option if it's a one-time deposit and you don't mind paying the fee. Money orders are an acceptable form of payment if you can't write a personal check or it's not safe to do so. Checking accounts are more convenient, but you might consider using a money order if you want a more secure form of payment than, say, a personal check. [...] it's a potentially dangerous situation because you should never share your personal information with anyone. [...] you never know what a loved one can do with, essentially, access to your account and money. With Chase QuickPay, you can send money to another person -- virtually anyone with an email address, the bank says -- or request money from someone else without cash or checks using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. There are no fees for users and you don't need a Chase account to use the online service, but the big downside is that at least one person involved in the transfer must have an account at the bank. [...] if the money has been sent via eCheque -- which might happen if you don't have a card and bank linked to your account -- it will take three to five business days for the funds to show up. [...] just like with PayPal, these online payment services have pros and cons including cost and ease of use. The smartest investors know that dividend stocks simply crush their non-dividend paying counterparts over the long term. Knowing how valuable such a portfolio might be, our top analysts put together a report on a group of high-yielding stocks that should be in any income investor’s portfolio.

How To Set Up Chase Direct Deposit


Bank Deal Guy

Direct deposits are great because they're convenient, fast, and secure. Your check will automatically go into your account without any effort being exerted on your part. Then, once it's been deposited, you'll be able to use it immediately. Never worry about losing your check or when to cash them again when you use direct deposits.
