If your bank is closed, you can alway use an ATM to make a deposit or get cash. If you are pinching pennies, make sure you use an in-network ATM or you could pay a transaction fee of $1.50 - $4. Most banks have mobile apps that come in handy for transferring funds, setting up bill payments, or to check your balance.
