Hi again everyone. I have about $2,500 in quarters, dimes, nickles and pennies that will be used in part to begin furnishing my new home in Henderson.

Currently a little less than half of it is rolled and the other half is split up into bags by denomination.

Coinstar wants 9% to sort it and give me cash.

My credit union will accept $25 dollars a day without a surcharge. If I bring in more than $25 they will charge 5%.

Given that most casinos have switched to coinless slots does anyone know of casino's in or around Vegas (Strip or downtown) or in Henderson or Jean or Primm etc where I can bring in $1100 in rolled coins and $1400 in loose coins and exchange it for cash or chips that I can then exchange for cash?

Preferably without a surcharge?

The Las Vegas Club downtown accepts coins, as it still has some machines that pay in coins, not tickets. But I've never tried to cash as much as $1,100. It might be a good place to start, though.

Interesting.

People b*tch all the time about big banks, but I've never had a problem depositing hundreds of dollars in coins with Bank of America. In fact, I used to roll the coins and put my account number on them, but I was instructed last year to just throw them all into a big, clear plastic pouch (which they provided) and they (or more accurately their machines) do the counting themselves.

No surcharges and no problems.

I do not think Vegas Club, or any casino for that matter, will accept pennies or dimes in their counters. Riviera had a free Coinstar machine but they did a remodel and it may have disappeared. Maybe give them a call. Otherwise separate your nickels and quarters and take them to Vegas Club, Fitzgeralds, Fremont, Sam's Town, or somewhere else that still has coins and cash those in. Then take the peenies and dimes to the bank or pay the 5%.

I agree. I never had any problems with coins from Wells Faargo either. Even ripped/torn dollar bills which the CU I was with back in the day would not accept, Wells Fargo did.

Another strike for the CUs.

I'd just use the coinstar voucher (which charges no fee) and buy my groceries for the next year for "free".

I'll give you $2400 cash tomorrow if you roll it up.
24 100 dollar bills.
That's cheaper than your credit union.
Seriously--DM me if you want.

Coinstar is a publicly traded company. Their goal is to make money for their stockholders (for which I am one), so the 9% fee does not seem stupid to me. Would you honestly expect them to count coins for free? Additionally, they own the Redbox dvd vending machines, which provide movies in an insanely inexpensive and convenient manner. Perhaps the cost of coin counting, offsets those dvd prices.
