I've only used a check perhaps a couple times in the last decade.

Anything I can't pay with a check, I pay with cash. I,write about 15 checks a month. Almost all the bills are done this way. The companies we are "forced" to use (no alternatives in area) change fees for telephone and internet payments. No thanks!

I typically keep a checkbook in the car for an emergency when cards aren't accepted (don't carry cash). Other than that I use checks for tithing.

Rarely. I think we only write checks to the school cafeteria, plumber, chimney sweep, painter, etc. I'm so glad bills are paid online now and I only use credit or debit when I shop.

I pay a couple bills by check but keep an excel file to track the balance, not a pen and paper checkbook.

Hardly ever. I've had to go to my bank twice this year to get a sheet of checks to write for wedding vendors but otherwise I never use them.

Reasoning for that?

Because I can't keep up with what check I wrote and what's cleared how much I have to spend it's just a hassle for me so I don't.

I also see them as a type of credit card. I believe if I can't pay cash for it I don't need it outside of a car or house.

Really!?! never heard of a check register and a calculator to keep track of what you have left?

Yep. It's just easier to pay everything with cash or debit.

I pay everything I can with credit card, barely use cash or check, & at the end of the month I usually get $40-$50 dollars back from the credit card company.

I guess to each his own.....

True. That's not a bad idea upswing the credit card to get cash back.

Only very rarely. I write maybe 3-4 checks per year. Usually for something school related where I need to send a check to school with one of the kids.

I haven't written a check in years. All my bills are paid online, and purchases are credit, debit or cash.

I pay 2 bills a month by check. One can be done by EFT but I keep forgetting to set it up. (Writing reminder to self.) There's no alternative for the other. I also write a monthly check to my daughter for my share of our family cell phone account.
