Even though we're a bank, we charge a 10% fee for non-customers (anyone who doesn't have an account with us) who bring in coin to be counted. And like others here, we've had rolls of coin that have been short in the past, so we insist that coin is brought in loose.

Unsurprisingly, we had a guy bring in a bunch of wrapped coin the other day. He started griping when we told him there was a fee. And he continued griping when we handed him a bucket and told him to unwrap all the coin. But apparently, nobody else in town would take it, because he didn't take his coin and leave.

Or he was trying to scam you and the wraps were not filled with coins.

Making him unwrap the coins destroys his plans, he he he.

I have heard of coin rolls with a length of pipe in the middle, as well as being full of metal slugs and washers.

Yup. When I delivered pizza we were explicitly told to open rolls of coins we got or to deny the sale because a few people had gone around getting bills for rolls of quarters with pipes in the middle.

Fortunately it didn't happen too often and the one person I remember paying with rolled change was just pissy about it but that was it.

My bank charges (IIRC it's 10%) even if you are a customer.

Hmmm... Maybe I should offer cash for coin and only charge 5%. It could add up over time.

...I still cannot accept $20 in pennies, nickels and dimes. That's not what "exact change" means. If you want to do that go to SCO...
That's what I do if I have a ton of change to get rid of. It does tend to accumulate, and I know the store can use it more than I can.

I've had customers who don't think they have enough money for their purchase because they dumped all their change on the counter and don't have any quarters. I've counted through and yep, they did have enough, and I will happily take it, and they're glad to not have all that weight in their pockets.

And I still prefer the change-payers over the fools who buy a 50˘ item with a hundred dollar bill, first thing in the morning.

That's because you will have $99.50 in change to give to those fools.

Spending a hundred dollar bill always fills me with horrible guilt even if I just bought 98 dollars worth of stuff. At this point I don't even try anymore I just save them till I can deposit them.
