So I recently opened a checking account at Chase. On the brochure is their new envelope-less ATMs (my Bank of America has had them for a couple years). To activate my debit card I am required to make an ATM transaction or call a number and refuse a few services they try to sell me. So I took a check, enter my card, my pin, the check and boom. CHECK NOT RECOGNISED. WTF? It was a printed check, not handwritten. Tried again, same outcome. Tried a third time, REJECTED. No way to override the system.
Now I have to wait until Saturday because I work almost the same hours as the bank. I actually never had this problem at Bank of America. Sucks brahs.
Update: It seems that this problem was not an isolated case and they are waiting for the company to update the software in the ATMs.
