Lesson Excerpt:

Even though many people use debit cards and credit cards to make purchases, there are over 70 million checks written in the United States each year. That is almost 20,000 checks every day! Checks, debit cards, and credit cards are substitutes for cash. Credit cards are more like loans, but checks and debit card transactions come directly out of your bank account. Knowing how to maintain a bank account can help prevent embarrassing and costly mistakes.
