  • Select deposit check, choose the account to make your deposit, and enter the amount.
  • Take a photo of the front of the check. Photograph the check against a background that gives you strong contrast. Also, insure the whole check is visible, in focus, and well lit. If it’s clear, accept it. Repeat this process for the back of the check. Once both images have been captured, continue.
  • Review your deposit and if correct, confirm it. When depositing checks using your smartphone it’s recommended that you write a note on the original document reminding you that the check has been deposited, then storing the document for a specified period of time before safely destroying it.

Back-to-School Budgeting

Sending your kids back to school doesn’t have to be a financial hurdle you face each year. With a little planning and a few of these tips, you and your family can get ready to tackle a new school year with everything you need, including a little extra in the bank.

Take Inventory:

Before you hit the stores, take stock of what you have. You might be surprised how many pencils and unused notebooks you discover or how many unworn clothes you unearth from the deepest realms of your children's closets.

Shop Late:

Avoid the August rush — and August prices — by skipping the crowded mall and waiting for better deals on school supplies to arrive in late September. You’ll get the same clothes at a fraction of the price.

Price Match:

Many large stores offer price-match guarantees. Bring an ad or your smartphone with you to prove a competitor’s price, and rejoice in getting the biggest discount on school supplies in town. Just remember to do your homework ahead of time. Get online and read up on store policies to make sure you’re bargain hunting at participating retailers.

Save with Savvy Teacher Gifts:

You want to show teacher appreciation, but back-to-school gifts can get expensive. This year, try something a little closer to home. Freshly baked treats or a handmade gift are meaningful and memorable alternatives to costly store-bought baubles. Plus, free sites such as Pinterest have loads of “pinspiration” for you.

Stay Smart with After-School Treats:

Instead of grabbing fast food in the name of speed, try prepping a healthier, cheaper option the night before. Snacks such as carrot sticks, crackers and fresh berries are easy on your budget and more nutritious for your kids.

Don’t Forget About the Dollar Store:

Think outside the name-brand box. Because your children are growing and changing every day, dollar stores can be a great place to find discount school supplies including clothing, stationary and even snacks.
