Are there no credit unions around that you could become a member of?
Thanks for the input. There is a credit union in town, I'll have to check out their website and see how they are in terms of giving/receiving coins from customers. If Wells Fargo is no longer an option, maybe the US Bank here might be a better option if the Credit Union doesn't work out, but given what I've heard here before a Credit Union may be the best option.
Credit Unions - you are a member. They are way better in pretty much every aspect. I'm a member of 2 CU's and they are both amazing in regards to my CRH habit...I mean hobby...I can quit any time I want.
Wow, are you in denial!!!
Anyway, when I bought the Mercury, I financed it with Wachovia. Because I started to school at our local Community College, they gave me free banking. After the Mercury was paid for, I was able to join the North Carolina State Employees Credit Union. As long as I kept a balance of $100, I had access to other services. That was in 1972. I am still banking with them. Many of the tellers were high school students at the school she was teaching and they got to know me. Her worse visit to the credit union was when one of the tellers told the other tellers, "This was my high school English teacher and she taught my grandmother. She retired at the end of that school year.
My wife and I have lived long enough and in a small community, most people know us well enough to call us by name... Mr. and Mrs. not Jim and Lavella. We're in the south and no one calls older people by their first name.
By the way, I closed my Safe Deposit Boxes because the cost increased.
Check on the credit unions in your area for their services. You may be surprised.
Are you a regular customer at any convenience stores? I spent a few years managing them and ordered coins weekly. I would not have any problem ordering an extra box of pennies or nickels for a customer, as long as they could pay for them. The problem you would run into, though, is you can't control whether they are customer-wrapped, or new from the mint.
Dont have any of those around,I wish.All we have are wells fargo and SunTrust. Basically I have to dump my coins at the banks i go to.Because of the coin shortage I can't simply drop them off at another and do cash i have to bring the coins in.So I have no specific dump bank there all dump and CRH.Do you ever have problems at your credit unions?.
There not that nice down here all they want is $$$$$$$$$$$$$ and most of the time they don't answer the phone because they just don't want to deal.
Nope. They all love me. I have all the tellers bought off anyway, like I say, they call me when the goodies cross the counter. Silver dollars in the past, real ones, red seal and blue seal paper money, etc. etc. etc. One teller in one of the branches has a bit of a coin collecting habit and I horse trade with her.
I've only had a problem with one particular manager of one branch. She is just an unpleasant person. To be fair, her branch is in a location with quite a few loud obnoxious customers so that probably has something to do with it. But if you are in customer service, it would probably be in your best interest to not look like you are a hair's breadth away from punching your clientele in the face.
The branch I go to now is amazing. Everyone from the newest teller to the branch manager are super friendly and are more than willing to order stuff for me. They even hold onto things they think I may be interested in. I absolutely love them.
