In the United States, there's a network of automated check cashing 
machines called SAM. The machines are usually found inside grocery 
stores and look like ATMs. Unlike conventional ATMs, they have no access 
to the banking network: they accept checks (or traveler's checks or 
money orders) and spit out cash. Whereas check cashing stores also offer 
payday loans (hence shop=money_lender), these machines only cash checks, 
and they aren't stores per se.

Since SAM has enough locations in the U.S., it would be a candidate for 
addition to name-suggestion-index, but first I'd like to get some 
feedback about the best way to tag it:
