    Just got back from HyVee

    I had 4 years of accumulated car coins that I cleaned out on Saturday and they were the only place I could find that would do it. No banks that I could find would do it at all, not even for a fee, which I offered. They would only do it if I was a customer and since I still bank in Aplington, that wasn't going to happen.
    Anyway, my plastic baggy was very heavy with the change and my wife said there was probably $30 in there. Turns out there was $114.92. I bought myself a candy bar on the way out to celebrate.
    Anyone have any change stories?

    My grandma brings me a lot of her change at the end of every year. It's always about $100.

    I have about 90 lbs of coins in the basement. I need to find something to do with that.

    HyVee charged 9% to do it. If your bank will do it, go there.

    Re: Just got back from HyVee

    I had a root beer mug from A&W that I filled up with solely quarters, and kept the other change in another cup. When the mug was almost overflowing, I brought it to my bank, and they counted it up. If I'm remembering correctly, it was $108. Pretty solid, and that wasn't even all the change.

    Assuming all were pennies between now and 1983 that would be $162.90

    Re: Just got back from HyVee

    I refuse to pay those Coinstar machines the fee to count my own money. Bank of America doesn't have the change counters at their branches anymore.......pretty lame.

    So I sent the fiance to her credit union with half of my change. It came out to about $165.

    You know those plastic jugs that they use to put popcorn in for fundraisers? I use one to put my change in, and it was overflowing. So I had probably around $350 in change in there.

    Re: Just got back from HyVee

    I don't get as many coins as I used to, but back in HS I worked as a delivery driver and made pretty good tips and ended my nights with a lot of coins. So I have an Iowa State oversized coke-bottle shaped holder that I put it in for about a year and took it into a US Bank thinking it would be around 60-80 dollars. Turned out it was over $400! It was mostly quarters, but I had everything mixed in. The stuff really adds up.

    Taking change to the bank is always fun because the amount is usually more than expected. I always keep change in my cupholder and on my desk.
