What do you typically receive cheques for?
Refunds from large organisations (e.g. train ticket refunds).
On occasions such as birthdays or Christmas.
How much are the cheques worth?
This varies - typically small amounts from companies (recently I deposited £6.10).
As a gift - usually a set amount such as £25, £50 etc.
How often do you personally write cheques? (And what for?)
Several times a year. My dry cleaner doesn’t take card payments and it’s easier to write out a cheque for an exact amount rather than worry about using cash and dealing with the leftover change.
In the past, I’ve used cheques to pay for driving lessons and for house deposits at university.
For what it’s worth, I would be keeping a legacy account open for the purpose of writing cheques, until such time as Monzo give me a cheque book, or my dry cleaner takes card payments.
