    I have not tried this for a while. But, was told the banks here will
    count change for anyone anymore. You have to come in with it in rolls

    I have yet to see one of these machines. My friend in Arlington TX
    tells me they are all over the place and she just dumps a styrofoam
    cup full in one of these machines and it gives you the money in bills.
    My bank won't take rolled coins from non customers and customers wo
    bring in rolled coins for deposit or to be "cashed in for bills"
    have to write their account # on the rolls. If you are short, it comes
    out of your account. Also they will not count large sums of unrolled
    coins as that takes time. They don't charge customers for the
    wrappers. You can buy pre-formed wrappers at Wal-art and most Staples
    stores for like .99-$1.50 for an assorted bag. I don't have one of
    those machines and probably won't buy one soon either. I roll the
    coins when I am watching t.v. or on rainy days, so they are always
    ready to be spent or takent to the bank. Once when we got really
    down and out, we paid our utility bills and grocery shopped (we live
    in a small town of less than 2300). So most business know me. I
    have even bought stuff we needed at the Dollar Store with rolled

    Thanks for all the posts on COINSTAR I had no idea that they charged
    you sooooooooo much money. They won't be getting any of my money if
    they ever have a machine here. It may take me several hours to roll
    my coins, but at least I will get to keep it ALL!
