    Help BB&T Question--Coins?

    Is it true they have free coin counters? Or does anyone know what to do with a jar of coins (preferably without rolling them by hand)?

    Yes, they do. I've taken coffee cans full of coins there. (I go to the Ranson branch).

    Don't know about BB&T, (although I should, since I have an account there), but I believe that BCT on Washington Street has one.

    You can also use the CoinStar at Food Lion in C-town. It's noisy but kinda fun
    You pour your coins into the machine, get a receipt and cash it at the register.

    They charge you, though, yes?

    This is peeving me off a little b/c a few weeks ago I went to both BB&T and BCT looking for coin rollers and both said they didn't have them to give away anymore. OK, fine, but they couldn't have volunteered that they had a free machine to do the sorting for me?!? Ah well, it was a good homeschooling project anyway :P

    Here's my attempt at combining this coin counting thread with the recycling/green-living thread => At least once a week, I mail between 4-15 small packages from the Summit Point USPS branch. Months ago, I learned that the postmaster there is constantly running low on change. Soooooo... I scoop up a handful (or two) of change and use that to pay for my mailings! I frequently have more change than the cost of my mailings, so she just gives me dollars for what's left. It's a win-win thing: I get rid of anywhere from $10-20 in change, and she staves off having to figure out how to run to the bank.

    I would imagine that with a little creative thought, you could think of one or two small businesses that you frequent that would love to have a pocket-load of your spare change.

    Most banks don't take wrapped coins anymore. I learned this lesson back in the 90's when I spent an entire day wrapping about 500 dollars in change, just to have to break them all into a bucket so they could dump them into their machine.

    We use Jefferson Security Bank and they have a coin counter ... we initially took our jar there years ago and opened a savings account with it. We figured it would be good to have a local bank and we also have our safety deposit box there.

    They do in fact charge you, and much more than I originally thought. I could have sworn it was 5%, but I noticed on their website it says 8.9%!
    Oh well, I suppose it might be worth it if a coinstar is considerably closer than your bank (gas money).
