Change in TD habits

Post  Alan From Rochester on Fri Aug 07, 2015 7:48 pm

For bills that I intend to take to a bank, I usually stealth them on both sites.

Now I'll often enter and mark those on TD only.

My smartphone broke several weeks ago. It's annoying to get to a computer for a small quantity of bills (which I've sometimes done anyway) This way I can write down the serials, and enter the bills next time I'm at a computer anyway.

The WG rules mostly concern bills entered on and marked with that site.

You're doing something right. You have the 4th highest daily hit rate for 2015 here (also known as 4th most hits this year here)*. Smile

I've also noticed quite an uptick in entries this month already. You're gaining ground. affraid

Bring it on! bounce

How are you stealthing your money? Not that I'm not going to enter any bill I get my hands on, but I admit to being curious.

And this will help my TD performance get even better, while not hurting my WG performance much.

My stealths have a small diagonal line in the front bottom right corner, so I recognize them if I get them back. Sometimes tellers try to give me bills I just gave them, or have my bills left from previous visits. Also, many of the $2s around here are mine.

The local library is closing down for a couple weeks while they move to a new building, so I wouldn't be able to enter bills there, another reason to MSE on TD.

Bills I intend to spend at retail will still be entered on both sites, and I'll still mark bills with only one site.

I enter most bills that come my way. I try to stamp everything, but I suspect I have missed stamping as much as 5 %, on the really high side. I'm not as OCD as some I have met in the wider community.

I have used my phone on occasion to enter bills, although I prefer the Numeric pad of a full keyboard for the numeric portions.

I may have to adopt some of Darth's approaches on marking - my hit rate has been steadily falling for months and months.

I enter everything and mark as much as much as I can but stealth instead of not entering a bill at all

I've got a simple one line stamp but may get something fancier when it's time for a replacement anyway. I could make my marked bills more productive as well as marking more bills. I've started handwriting some bills with a regular blue pen - some bills don't have room to stamp and sometimes stamp ink doesn't adhere well to old bills.

Even with a working smartphone, entering bills on mobile is a bit of a pain in the ass.

I use the top row of number keys especially since I'm using some nearby letter keys for the rest of the serial anyway.

I NEVER stealth. EVER.
And when I find a stealthed bill I blow it's cover.

I won't take the hit to my Hit Rate that stealthing does.

Yeah, I never stealth either. No one ever finds them.
So far I've not entered a non one into TD. I love the hitrate on ones Razz Smile Shocked
