with have their lobbies closed. They don't accept coins rolled or loose even
thru the drive thru window. Fast food places will only accept exact change,
nothing more, loose or rolled. I'll keep my change until things change, about
$40+ in cents, nickels and dimes. The Wal-Marts in the area accept loose coinage
at the self checkouts. Chuck it in coin at a time, then finish with CC or cash.
No change back.
They need to ask the banks to allow people into lobby to use coin counters. The minute they do that I will be there with $2000 worth to help out.
I get it from CRH. Been getting one or te boxes of cents a week through this whole quarantine. I have enough cents that I could melt them down, make them into pipes, and redo my whole house with copper piping lol.
Think of all the drywall patching you'll have to do.
good point. I hate doing drywall.
These are my observations in my corner of the world and may not reflect national conditions. I heard some establishments refused cash because they could not give change. This leads to the question, where are all the coins supposedly in circulation?
One has to differentiate between coins available for circulation and coins actually in possession of the public.
It seems the public is to blame for some of the shortage of coins because of the ('gazillions?) coins stored in their piggy banks and unwillingness to cash them in at banks which are closed. Wrong, in my opinion the root cause of the coin shortage is the unwillingness of the public to carry change. I never do and most men I know rarely carry change in their pockets. Most women I know usually open the change purse attached in their wallet and offer the correct change. I asked my wife why she offers change on a transaction and her response was, "To lighten the load of carrying the accumulated coins. When the change purse becomes too full, I dump most of it into small cosmetic bags, but save some to offer change at the stores." I suspect men are the real cause of the shortage because when I phoned ten of my buddies and asked them if they carry change, they all said no. When I asked if they knew of anyone who did carry change, they said no, again. I realize this was an insignificant sample size, but I think it warrants consideration.
Btw, what happened to all those Presidential Dollar coins?
You shut your dirty mouth...
Sorting through a box of coins is my zen. You don't want to see me when I don't have my zen.
Further more...they will crash through your walls to confiscate your hoard. You know what that means? More drywalling for you to do!!!
Dangit...... Now I gotta give those back too?
Shortage seems to be mostly quarters and pennies around here. I have over $400 in rolled quarters, but they are my BU rolls of 2019-2020 quarters. I'm not wanting to turn them in.
Even though I could cut down to 2 rolls of each mint and design....I don't wanna. I have found a lot of State quarters in really good condition, and have saved those too. Don't wanna get rid of them though. I have trouble putting a nice older quarter back in circulation to get ruined!
