Getting coins exchanged (without rolling them) for free is getting tougher and tougher. Coinst*r is a rip, and suddenly the credit union or other banks that used to provide great coin counting machine services for free are now charging a similar to Coinst*r prices. What?! So now where do I go with my jar of coins I've amassed?

A while back I ventured to El Cortez Casino and they exchanged most coin denominations. I think I heard Wild Wild West Casino exchanged coins. Anyone else know a place where time forgot...where a man and woman is still free to get his coins exchanged...and liberty and justice for all?

I'd write your Congressman.

I did mine. I said that as part of the financial reform and to help stimulate the economy, banks and credit unions should be required to allow you to deposit loose change into your account at no extra charge. How can we say that the US has a fully functional banking system if people have piles of money in their house that they can't do much with?

Needless to say, I don't think that will be passed into law. But it was worth a try.

I know the GoldenGate does this for free for all coins, but want to know of any other places.

Drive up to the Gold Strike casino in Jean. Dump your coins, sorted for nickels, dimes, and so forth in separate containers and take to the cashier. Not sure about the pennies though. You should still be able to turn in pennies at the Gold Spike downtown.

It shouldn't cost that much to drive there. Unless you have a huge gass guzzler. I go out there every 2 months. I stop and play and get rid of loose change that way. Because their machines actually still take coins. And pay in coins.

Just an idea. Coin star does not charge a fee if you want an Amazon.com giftcard.
