Savings deposit using an ATM card

ZingAnother way to put money in your account is by using an ATM, which means automated teller machine. Instead of going inside a bank, you use a machine! ATMs are almost everywhere, and they’re really convenient!

ZingWhen you get an ATM card, the bank gives you a special code to use when whenever you use the card. It’s called a PIN, which stands for personal identification number.

ZoeyKeep your PIN a secret — and never write it on your ATM card!


ZingOh, using an ATM would be fun! If your parent or guardian helps you open your savings account, you may be able to have your own ATM card.
