Oprah Visits Bank For The First Time In 29 Years, Deposits $2 Million For Fun

By on November 6, 2017 in ArticlesBillionaire News

If you were to predict where you might spot Oprah Winfrey out and about, what would your guess be? One might guess, an exclusive A-list soirée, nearby at her lavish Maui home, within the Harpo headquarters in Chicago, among other possibilities. But would you ever expect to see the 63-year-old media mogul at the bank?

Recently, on an episode of Ellen DeGeneres's YouTube segment, "Show Me More Show," Winfrey shares that she decided to visit a physical bank for the first time since 1988.

"I just wanted to," she explained to DeGeneres. "I just wanted to do it. I stood in line – just to do it!"

And get this: She was there to deposit a $2 million check – a drop in the bucket for the billionaire who is worth more than $3 billion.

Not an ATM frequenter either, Winfrey revealed that she also does not know her PIN number.

Once trips to the bank to deposit a $2 million check become a fun excursion to be done every few decades, you can certainly say you've made it.
