I stopped by the bank to deposit a check. When I got to the ATM, I was looking for an envelope, but they were all out. After looking around, I noticed a sign that saying that I didn't need an envelope (I made the Tim Allen sound from his Home Improvement show... huh). The ATM took checks directly and scanned them instantly, automatically picking up the dollar amount. On my receipt, it actually printed a scanned image of the check. I was impressed. Looks like Bank of America is moving in the right direction.
