For years my bank hasn't even given me one. Last one they gave me was when I opened my account in 2006.

Nope. Cheques aren't that big in Australia as a method of payment anymore with the proliferation of EFTPOS and banks issuing debit Visa\Mastercards. They've pretty much fallen out of favour except among businesses paying other businesses and the elderly and even then the latter usually go for cash. Bank cheques are still common enough for things like houses and cars.


I pay my college online using my Debit Mastercard and most purchases in a store using PayPass on said card.

I used to have a chequebook, although I don't remember what I did with it, if anything. I've got a debit card and ebanking, I don't have a need for one anymore.

My checkbook stays at home.


I pay all my bills via online bill-pay through my bank. If I have to do a deposit, I will tear off a deposit slip and drop the checks at my bank.

Yes. I use it to pay bills and buy gas since its 10 cents/gallon cheaper than using a credit card.
