USAA Lets You Remotely Deposit Checks

We got a flier in our recent USAA bill announcing they’re now letting customers deposit checks from home. Just sign and scan your checks and send it in through the USAA website. As far as we know, USAA is the only bank to offer this service to consumers.

USAA members, go to, keyword: deposit@home or call 800-531-2265. (USAA is only open to members of the armed forces or their families). Use of the check service may require IE.

We’re putting “open a USAA checking account” on our next action list! — BEN POPKEN
