  • no, I jutt take my change to the bank....they dump the loose change into a money counting machine then they give you ALL of the money in bills or put it into your acccount.

  • No I am too cheap! I roll my own coins. I actually like doing it too.

  • I did once when we were going to DC for the weekend and had over $250 in change. It takes too much of a percentage off your total. So, now we roll them up and take them to the bank to get the full amount.

  • I have used coinstar and I like it, but they do charge a few of 8.9 percent I believe and then u have to watch out because some markets will try to tell you that u have to spend it there or get charged a fee which isn't true, because coinstar already charged you a fee which they get a percentage of. Give it a try see if u like it !!! :)

  • Oo yes! We fill up coin jars around here like no ones business and then about once every other month take them up there. Awesome.

  • Yes! For me, it's more fun than a Vegas slot machine. Last time, i had $27.00 worth of change.
