USAA's new Deposit@Home program eliminates the need for bank branches

It's hot outside here in Austin, and the pollen count is making me sneeze.  I received a check from one of my many business ventures, but I really don't want to have to go outside and brave the elements and walk all the way over to my bank branch to deposit it.

And luckily for me, I don't have to.  Not since USAA's Deposit@Home Program came along.

Just take your iPhone and log into your USAA app.  Then take a picture of your check on your phone, and press submit.  And right after you press submit, the funds from that check are instantly in your checking account.

Just like that.  No muss, no fuss.  No more long lines at the bank.  No more getting to the bank only to see it's closed.  Where has this program been all my life?

If you don't have a smartphone, the Deposit@Home program can also be downloaded onto your computer and used with a document scanner.

As long as you or a family member is in some way connected to the military, you too can be one of the lucky ones to get a USAA account.  Take advantage of this amazing program.

There is a slight catch to the program, though.  In order to get access to it, you have to either sign up for a USAA credit card or apply for their auto insurance.  But once you get it, your life will change forever.

Now it's not only the HEB grocery store that immediately gets funds when checks are run through their systems.  You too get your funds immediately with any checks that come your way!

This is the future of banking, and maybe one day all the banks will offer a program like this.  But for now, enjoy the power on your iPhone to get instant funds with USAA's Deposit@Home program!
