    I had a nice haul from the reject slot of a Coinstar today:

    I believe this is the first time I've found a half dollar in the reject slot of a Coinstar, let alone four of them. The total face value comes in at $3.64. The Bourbon Street tokens are interesting; they could be souvenir tokens from the Bourbon Street Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, which closed in 2005. The car wash token is neat, too.

    Somebody was being really inattentive.

    Amazing how many fools sit there shoveling coins into the machine whilst perusing all their farcebook, snapcrap on their phones etc.

    I guess some people who may never have used one of these machines before simply do not know there is a place to accept rejects, or don't realize that the machine will even reject coins. Let's face it, no one reads the directions.

    Worth noting about this find is this Coinstar is located literally at the front of the store right in front of the registers. There were customers walking right past it and even hanging out by it messing about buying lottery tickets or what have you.

    Yet no one noticed this very obvious, proverbial treasure just waiting to be found; nor did anyone even flinch when I started gathering up the coins, either.

    A couple days ago I noticed coins in the coinstar. I waited about 5 minute while a guy shoved money into the lotto machine and scratched the cards on the coinstar machine. 18 inches from the coins. I got them. BTW the machine tells you a couple times to check for rejected coins. People amaze me sometimes... not in a good way.

    I had used them quite a bit, but had only counted a small amount of change before sorting, and it was dead on accurate. It's a shame they got rid of them. I'm not paying anyone 12% for something my lazy butt can do in an hours time, myself.

    I literally hate that effing lottery machine. I cannot tell you how many times I have missed out on treasures because some person had their voluminous posterior parked there scratching off lottery tickets.
