While at least half of your time dealing with finances revolves around budgeting, bill pay, and spending, there’s the other half—savings and deposits. It’s likely you already use online bill pay to manage your outflow; there are some real benefits to be found by using mobile deposit to streamline the flow of funds into your account, as well.
One of the easiest ways to simplify your checking account deposits is through technology, with remote deposit applications taking the world by storm over the past few years. And the fact is, they are far more than a simple convenience—they can save you time and money, too.
Benefits of Mobile Deposit
As some examples, here are the top five ways that MONEYLINK℠ Mobile Deposit through the SC Telco Mobile app can save you in the end:
Save time in line – Along with the convenience of branch locations comes the inevitable—the line. While standing in line means that eventually you’ll get your check deposited, it also means that you’re not doing other things that you could be spending time on, from learning a new hobby to upping your caffeine intake at the coffee shop. MONEYLINK℠ Mobile Deposit is a way for you to spend every moment wisely—not in line.
No rush hour panic – If you’ve ever been the one rushing across town at 4:50 in the afternoon to try and make that deposit by the 5 p.m. close time, you’re not alone. Fortunately, mobile deposit won’t leave you with road rage—simply log in, snap a photo of your check, and upload the information.
Save gas – How many credit union trips do you make each month, and how much gas do you think you use trekking to and from the branch? With remote deposit, you can save that extra gas a little bit at a time. And once all that gas money adds up? Well, that’s one more deposit you can make into your personal savings account or checking account.
24/7 Availability – For those who can’t make the credit union on time, there’s no longer a need to worry over whether tomorrow is a holiday, or if there’s a weekend coming up to further delay putting your money where it belongs. Access to your account through the app means that your money in hand can be your money in your account—anytime, anywhere.
Fewer errands – If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that the day-to-day tasks and errands pile up—and really, who has time to run all over town all the time? Fortunately, with MONEYLINK℠ Mobile Deposit, you can spend less time running to and from credit unions in South Carolina, and more time doing the things you want to do.
The bottom line? MONEYLINK℠ Mobile Deposit is a time-saver, and only one of the features of many apps available through SC Telco. See our website for more information on personal checking accounts that qualify.
