Your Two Cents: How Often Do You Hit the ATM?

I used to hit the ATM more often, but now that the majority of my income is devoted to paying bills (mortgage, taxes, phone, groceries, etc.) my husband gives me a cash "allowance" - no fixed amount, just as needed for incidentals. So he's my ATM :-p --totally weird not being free to splurge on a whim as I was when I was single...but that's a good thing!

the question should also include - how much do you take out?

Wellllll this option isn't on there but I usually go only once a month. I try to get as much spending money out as I need to last me the month!

I go to the ATM, maybe once a month if that. I will go to the ATM machine if I need to deposit a check. I stick to debit and credit card.

Where's I get cash from the bank?

rarely to never... I've gotten cash from the atm twice, and money back from the cashier once in the past two years. I just very rarely have cash on me.

I give myself a weekly allowance so I only withdraw that allowance every week. I try my best to not spend my whole week allowance and withdraw only every 2 weeks.

I said every two weeks, but it is probably like once a month. I usually don't need to withdraw money from my account, since debit cards are accepted most places these days.

I try not to ATM since it only gives the banks my little $1.50-3.00 - or whatever they decide to charge me. I think it's b.s., so I usually take what I need out of my paycheck.

rarely, I would say like once or twice a month if that.

Never. I get all the cash I need -- and then some -- from serving, so I always have enough on hand. I do like paying debit for things though. I find it's easier to keep track of my purchases that way, rather than hanging on to all my receipts!

I usually only go to the ATM when I have a check to deposit. I prefer to use my debit card for almost every purchase. Having the electronic record of my transactions helps me keep track of what I'm spending.

I go once a week. I usually use my check or credit card, but I like to have cash on hand for small purchases, like coffee.

Honestly, I hate cash. I prefer to use debit or credit. I can go weeks without using cash.

I go every so and then. I used to go almost every day - stupid bank wouldnt give a new citizen a debit card!... now I only go when ive run out of cash. I always carry cash though - im the opposite soulight! I burn through money when I cant see it :)

Usually twice a week.

I rarely go because I work at the bank. But even before that I rarely went to the ATM, I don't like to carry cash because then I burn through it. It's a little forced self control. ;-)

i've started to give myself a weekly budget, and now i go once a week to the ATM and then if i run out of cash - then that's too bad for me. i try not to use any other source of money (i.e. even my debit card)
