  • Are you really thinking of throwing your money away,if,you don't want them,you can always donate them to a charity,also,you can give them to your kids and this will teach them how to save money. We all have our own penny and change container. I also let my grands save cans,last year I told them whatever they get for the cans,I would match,of course they didn't get much,but we had an awesome time at Disney-World. Teaching your kids the importance of saving while their young will go a long way in their future.

  • Take them to the bank or a coinstar machine. I don't understand how someone can throw money away. Maybe its because I was raised very poor. Pennies make dollars...enough pennys makes significant dollars.

  • i agree with previous posters in fact coinstar is now waiving the cash out fee if you transfer your balance to a gift card with one of their partners (ie amazon etc) but if you are a member of a bank they will cash out changef or free

  • ARE YOU KIDDING? THROW THEM OUT? Don't you realize that for every 100 of those pennies, you have $1? I took in a bunch of change yesterday to Harris Teeter. I did the coinstar thing. I got a ticket for $18.27. The little bit of groceries I needed was $30. I paid for all but $12.73 of my bill with coins. If you want to throw them out, let me know. You can send them to me!

  • I save my change, then cash it in every year before the holidays for Amazon giftcards and use that to buy small presents for my kids. It makes the stocking stuffers pretty painless financially then.

    If you don't want the money from your pennies, many Coinstar machines will let you donate the money to charity as well - http://www.coinstar.com/us/html/A2

  • throw them away.. ARE YOU NUTS!!
    WE TOOK OUR CHANGE TO A COINSTAR AND GOT $80, AND INSTEAD OF PAYING COINSTAR 7.5 CENTS PER A DOLLAR WE WERE ABLE TO GET A AMAZON CERT AT THE FULL $80. BY GETTING A CERT FOR AMAZON YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY THEM.

  • The older, pure copper pennies, are worth at least 1.5 cents.
