Went to the bank the other day, turns out they offer a coinstar service, of sorts.
Works great, and now I’m not carrying around 5 pounds of loose change.
Yes, really. Quite heavy, but not a problem anymore. I really like the receipt, it gives you the break down of what type of coinage and how many you had. That’s 182 pennies.
You’ll notice the lack of quarters, primarily because I needed them for laundry. However, in my new place, they use tokens you buy at the front desk. An end of an era.
You have to give back the receipt at the teller window, but before I did, I snapped this pic.
Oh, and my bank doesn’t charge for this “service.” At least not yet.
