Don't bank on it,.. unless you're at a bank. Many business places reserve the right of refusal beyond convenience.

Our bank does this for free. I put all my change in a big ol' goldfish bowl, and when it gets full I carry it into the bank. They aren't exactly glad to see me comin', but about twice a year I walk outta that bank with an empty goldfish bowl and upwards of $150.
And I'm not too proud to pick up random change in a parking lot. Though I freely admit, the ground is further away than it used to be.......

Do you deposit that money into your savings or checking accounts?

I save change (I learned that from Suzy Ormond) and roll it when I have enough. I wait until I have at least $50.00 and bring it into my bank to deposit in my savings account. How I wish they paid better interest.

I will admit that I, too, will pick up any change I find on the ground. I usually find change when I stop at a convenience store like 7-11 or Circle K. In the parking lots of those stores. Check the ground in a grocery store parking lot as well.

Happy Hunting. May your search be profitable.:-)

We have a change counter thingy that sorts the coins into tubes for coin rollers. We've saved about 200.00 so far this year! We call it our NASCAR fund! LOL!

Now and then I take a spell of saving every one dollar bill I receive in change. It's shocking how quick it adds up. Fun to take a brick of 300 singles to the bank.

My son-in-law cashed in the change he saved in an old water bottle. We had 12 double-bagged plastic bags and needed a wagon to take them into WalMart to be counted. The coin counter kicked out old pennies and foreign coins. It took about 1 hour as the machine would sometimes complain (yes, a message would appear) saying we were going too fast while feeding the coins into the tray.
Unfortunately there was a fee. I told him next time I'll roll the coins and I wouldn't charge him a fee.
A 1 gallon jar of pennies is $50 dollars.

I spent many of my younger days rolling up pennies for cigarettes, gas, food, and other things. it's so amazing how valuable they become when your broke.
