Mobile check deposit, available after you have deposited at least $200 in the past year and your accounts have been open for 30 days, is a convenient and secure way to deposit paper checks without having to go to a bank branch or check-cashing center.

Depositing a check is simple to do from within the Spruce app:

  1. Select Move Money and then Deposit a check.
  2. Enter the amount on your check for deposit.
  3. Take a pic of the front and back of the check. We even give you tips and automatically take the picture for you.
  4. Select Deposit check.

You’re all set! We’ll message you in-app if your check has been accepted or rejected. We may also need additional time to review your check, but we’ll send you an email about the status of your check deposit in either case. Funds available 3-11 business days post deposit.
