I rarely go into our bank for anything. With direct deposits and ATMs, there isn't really any reason to. However, I went to our bank to purchase two Visa gift cards. When I handed over my debit card to pay, the teller advises "I'm sorry. We can't accept debit cards. We only take cash or checks." Huh??? This is YOUR debit card. Why would you take a check, but not your debit card? With that, I got the standard employee answer "It's our policy. You can go outside to the ATM and withdraw the money." Which is what I wound up doing.
I still haven't been able to figure this one out. Anybody out there in the banking industry care to shed some light on this?
