Hi, without paying a fee (which is stupid IMO, as it's MONEY) - any thoughts on where to take a ton of rolled coins? (our local account is with BB&T and I'll call them and ask) - the other half is a bit OCD and now has quite a fund in rolled coins which have now filled a box and neither of us can even pick it up! I want them out of here.

I believe BB&T will do it free for account holders. I think TD Bank does the same.

That's hilarious about the box you can't lift! This is why I do the smart thing and shove all our coins into the couch cushions.

LOL about the couch since ours is bad (maybe all the coins would give it some support??? hmmm). BB&T did send a email at one point saying they no longer had coin counting machines that were free (the closest to me was Kingstowne) - I'll assume they'll take rolled coins but I guess I'll have to piece-meal them. It's amazing how much coins weigh! (especially as many as we have) - I did hear an ad for TD Bank saying free coin counting for customers...

I've never had any issue taking my rolled coins to my bank (Wells Fargo/ Wachovia / First Union). I've never even been required to write my account number on the rolls.

Odd, as I just had a conversation about rolling coins with my co-workers the other day. Some feel it is well worth the small percentage they take to dump the coins in a machine and they do the counting. But, more people, like myself, actually ENJOY rolling the coins. Last time I did it, my husband came home and looked sad and said, "you did it without me?"

The box we use to collect coins gets pretty heavy when it's full, but still manageable. But, the size forces us to roll before we can't carry it. We typically get about $400 - $450 from this particular size box.

Thanks spencgr - this isn't a large box but it's currently at $825.50. I need to get him a smaller box!! (He wears a size 12, that shoebox would be pretty big as well, we'll go w/one of mine, LOL)

Rolled coins should not be that much of a problem, speaking as a bank branch employee myself.

You could cut them open into a Coinstar machine. If you take a giftcard there is no fee and they do Amazon, grocery stores, etc.

Coinstar machines which can be found at places like Giant are free if you get payment as a gift card. You could then use the gift card to buy your groceries.

Count your change ahead of time and bring it to the bank's counting machine. My bank gives a free tshirt if you guess correctly, and I get it right everytime
