2 of my banks have just removed their coin machines, Too much maintance they tell me,

I often have 500.00 or more of quarters and the clerk suggested going to walmart or a supermarket using their machines but they take a hefty % of the coins and I'm not confident they count all the coins,..same clerk said "we can give you papers to roll them," (not happy of the time/effort to do that.)

Anyone have this problem? are your banks doing away with their coin machines?

coins ,laundry (by zero [IN]) Posted on: May 11, 2024 3:27 PM

My credit union still has them. I have no coin op laundry so no big amounts of coins.

Mostly I save all the coins from each turnover, just to see how much they left laying around. Then I put it in a jug in the office and take it when it gets close to full. Any coins I have from when I pay cash gets tossed in there as well.

Fun side note, the last two times I took change in it was an exact dollar amount. --107.147.xx.xx

You could search amazon for electronic coin sorters.

sounds like an evening of fun rolling quarters.

or you could search for :

changing coin laundry machines to take credit cards

that would eliminate all your coin counting worries.

I bought a coin counter machine. I usually empty the machines every couple of months. Pays for the water bill and keeps the tenants happy

coins ,laundry (by RB [TN]) Posted on: May 11, 2024 6:58 PM

Funny how that works -

I've never gotten tired or bored rolling coins.

coins ,laundry (by Robert,OntarioCanada [ON]) Posted on: May 11, 2024 9:33 PM

In Canada there is no longer one and two dollars paper bills where there is one dollar coin called the loonie and toonie for the two dollar coin along all the bills are plastic which are thinner along with extremely difficult to counterfeit. What happened with the one dollar and two dollar bills once were deposited in banks then taken out of circulation where in the Us it was on and off with a one dollar coin. It makes sense to get of quarters or a least have go to dollar coins as with inflation a quarter does not buy much. In the EU there one EU coins with currency. Having a one dollar bill is where counterfeiters convert to hundred dollar bill by de inking.

In America, the United States of American, there are private companies, like Coin Star, owned by Chicken Soup of the Soul, that have is markets Coin Counting Machines. They charges range from 7.2 Cents to 9.7 Cents to count coins and spit out a paper receipt that you can cash at the Markets Cashiers.

OR you can select a Gift Card, and the Retailers pays Coin Star for this service. Some Gift Cards are for:

The Home Depot




Best Buy

and other choice retailers.

SO my coins get counted and I shop with the voucher.

You Must have your cell phone and take a picture of the Coin Star Machine LCD screen, showing how many coins you have and your total. Around 2% of the time the paper voucher gets chewed up. My Store Managers look at my cell phone picture then pay me quickly in cash. --47.155.xx.x

a credit union by me still has the coin machines; no fee if a customer there. some smaller local banks may still have them too --99.92.xx.xx

Try calling a few credit Unions in your area to see if they offer free access to coin counting machines for their members. I've found that most CUs & smaller banks are much more service oriented than the larger banks.

Two of the CUs & 1 of the banks that I use offer it. Of these 3 that I regularly use one requires that you deposit the money into your account & the other two give back cash.

I usually am rolling under $200. My bank gives me paper rollers and I have a plastic tube you drop the coins into and then slide the paper roller in. It doesn’t take me that long.

coins ,laundry (by RB [TN]) Posted on: May 12, 2024 9:01 AM

Bingo, Still.

coins ,laundry (by Hubba Hubba [CA]) Posted on: May 12, 2024 2:35 PM

Just use the Coinstar machine. If you take your payout as a credit on Amazon you get full value. They have other companies too.

coins ,laundry (by Mark g [MA]) Posted on: May 12, 2024 2:48 PM

The last time I made my rounds..and yes I could break it up to several days but this time I did it in one day, I got very close to $1,000 of quarters,..which weigh 50 lbs.

Carrying that from the parking lot to where the coin machine is,.used to be easier, somehow 50 lbs weigh more than when I was younger,

coins ,laundry (by 6x6 [TN]) Posted on: May 12, 2024 3:13 PM

I would like to see that money Robert Ontario Canada mentioned.

Steve and Still Learning's ideas are what I use if needed.

coins ,laundry (by NE [PA]) Posted on: May 12, 2024 3:49 PM

My wife weighs them for rolling. Quicker than counting. We pull any silver and replace with modern alloy.

Perfect busy activity for the grandkids. --69.161.xx.xx

I don't have coin-op laundry, but I get rid of my coins at Walmart. The self-service registers still take cash! I drop in whatever coins I've gathered since my last visit, and then pay the balance with my card.

coins ,laundry (by Ray-N-Pa [PA]) Posted on: May 12, 2024 8:38 PM

If you have 10 or more units where the coin laundry is at, you might want to consider getting coinless laundry machines. They use a card that you load money on them.

If you lose the card, you lost the money. The machines are less likely to ram up as a coin box gets too full. Also you only need to safe guard the safety of one machine accepting cash instead several washers and driers. This is the future

There are one dollar coins in the Us which are very rare where one time in the Us hardware store gave as change. In the Us they keep printing one dollar bills where should have stopped one dollar bills in circulation where here as one dollar and two dollar bills once deposited in banks were only received one and two dollar coins. The one and two dollar bills were the last of paper money where switched to polymer bills where lighter and thinner. Where the life expectancy was 8 to 16 years. You tube has videos on different currencies used in the world. Some countries are switching to polymer bills with hologram so counterfeiting is next to impossible.

coins ,laundry (by Tony T [PA]) Posted on: May 16, 2024 12:08 PM

Consider putting in washers/dryers that are free, then charge $10/month (for example) for the use. It's not enforceable but it'll save you from your dilemma. I decided to replace my coin op washer/dryer with regular ones since it serves only 4 units, rents are probably covering them OK.
