    I didn't use counter checks where I lived. My roommate came from a town where everyone knew everyone and they did have those checks. I didn't have a debit card until many years later. I'd go to the drive through teller to deposit paychecks and get cash-back to last me until the next time.

    In high school it was simple - I didn't have money. One of the jobs I had payed cash every week, the other paid by check and I'd stop by the bank on the way home to cash it.

    I see signs saying that $20 bills are the maximum they will take. Probably to minimize their exposure if the bill winds up being counterfeit.

    However, counterfeit 20s are apparently much more common than counterfeit 100s.

    Also to reduce exposure in case of theft, less change and smaller bills on-hand.
