These days you can get money at a drive-thru the way you can
get a burger and fries. It's a fast-paced world, and new technologies
revolve around time and convenience. Now, banking is easier
than ever before.
ATMs can now be found in every walk of civilized life: Convenience
stores, supermarkets, shopping malls, gas stations, casinos,
cruise ships, and on street corners everywhere--with over
800,000 machines worldwide.
In every transaction paid for with your debit card, the money
comes directly out of your checking account. While this saves
you from having to pay a large credit card bill at the end
of each month, knowing that the money will be taken out right
away, or in a few days, can save you from bouncing checks.
