TIP! SAVE UPTO 8.9% ON MORRISONS CHANGE MACHINES

Not a very hot deal as such but I took about £20 of copper into Morrisons the other day to one of those machines that counts it for you and charges upto 8.9% for the privelidge!
The machine was full so a member of staff told me you can avoid this by feeding the coins into the dump tray on the self service checkouts, the till will count the money and deduct it from your shopping without charging you. Note this will only work on the Morrisons self service tills and not self service tills in Tesco, Asda etc.
Like I say a small deal but one which will save you some money, plus you dont have to sort the coins out just dump it in and away you go.
I hope this benefits someone!

Morrisons is good for two things: - This Hotdeal & The Petrol Points!
#4
This is great thanks! My OH just took a pile of coppers for the kids to ASDA yesterday and was charged a small fortune for the privilege. Hot piece of advice!
#5
Im glad this is of use, I thought it was a small deal but these change machines are a rip off!

Save your coppers and visit Morrisons get the buy one get one free offers!
#6
Nice one, good idea. Thanks.

I guess because the coins at self service go on a little converyor belt its best to do this at Morrisons and not other supermarkets

Thats right, it is very quick and easy too with less rejected coins!
#9
Isn't the point of being charged the fact that the money then goes to a charity ?
#10
I suppose it would work on a Tesco one too if you dont mind wasting an hour feeding each coin in! Lol

As far as i know if you take the money option you get charged the fee, if you donate the change to your chosen charity the charity gets the full amount with no fee charged.

Coinstar Coin Counting
There's hidden treasure in your home!

Fact: The average UK household has about £50.00 of spare change just sitting around and the average household in Ireland has €74. Why not turn yours into cash at the Coinstar Centre near you?




How It Works

Coinstar's patented self-service kiosk is easy and fun to use. Just pour in your jar of mixed coins and watch them add up. The Coinstar Centre accurately counts up to 600 coins per minute, saving you the time and effort of sorting, rolling and taking them to the bank. When you cash in, you'll get a voucher to redeem for cash at the store checkout or apply to your purchases. Check your voucher for special promotions or sweepstakes that Coinstar may be offering. In the UK, the fee for our coin counting service is 8.9 pence per pound counted. In Ireland the fee is 9.9 cents per Euro.

Looks like the charge is 8.9% with coinstar!

..... and better meat and fish than Tesco, Sainsbury and Asda. I quite like Morrisons. There's one about 200m from the Tesco near me and now I wouldn't dream of doing food shopping in Tesco.

I agree sorry they are good for more things....
#18
Hot tip - thank you, I use coin star a lot to save weighing my handbag down with shrapnel. Then have to q at CS in Asda to get the money from the coupon as the till doesn't take them anymore there.
#19
Whats wrong with counting it into coin bags (free from the bank) and taking it to the bank??

Self service tills are meant to speed things up, I would be fuming if I got stuck behind somebody emptying their piggy bank into one.

Its bad enough at the Post Office getting stuck behind some ebayer with 1000 item of tat.
#20
In America the coinstar machines let you get evouchers for amazon, itunes and many others without paying any fee, I wish they did this in the UK.
#21
Presumably, if you bought a £5 item at the self service till and paid in a bucketload of change amounting to £25, you'd get a crisp £20 note as change from the till? Or would the till stop accepting coins once it had counted enough for £5?

I agree with your post, however at my bank they only take 5 small bags of coin per day. Perhaps I need to change my bank!

Not sure how commonplace these are but the HSBC near Poultry in London has a few of these machines which credits the whole sum straight to your bank account, no commission.

I don't know whether other banks have these, or indeed whether or not they are around elsewhere (the HSBC here is HUGE) but in city centres etc. they might be worth a look if you want to keep all of your coppers :thumbsup:

... but they don't clean the fish as good as Tesco, and their petrol is a bit dodgy (or is it just me) - gives you less mpg ....

So I guess that put it back to only Hotdeal occasionally? But I do like this idea of getting rid of (ops sorry should I say use up the potential) of little changes with the self service machine! HOT VOTED!! :whistling:

I will count your coins for 6% commission. :)

Yes but if YOU want ALL the money then why not have it?!

Yes you need to get an RBS account. 2 of my local brances have a huge giant machine that is basically a pay in booth but it accepts up to 1000 coins of each variety and will depost this money exactly into your account for you I found this very useful and accurate each time (i had counted the coins prior to going as i did not know they had this machine!)

Oh yeah and there is no commission!
#29
The 9% goes to charity doesn't it?

I don't mind paying if it goes to a good cause, but if it makes some fat cat richer then its a hot(ish) deal.
#30
yeah most banks only accept 5 bags of coins these days wether it be £100 or £5. Funny, i thought they needed our money
#31
The tesco near me has just had new self service tills put in, they have new coin slots, like a funnel type thing. Should work in a similar way

This could be the answer....

Forget the PS3 and Wii, give the kids a bag of smelly old coppers and watch their face light up with all the fun of the world as they empty bags of coins into the trays.
Didn't have these in my day, guess thats why all the kids were pinching cars

I took in £760 in £1 coins = 38 bags of £20, the bank was fine with this and weighed about 5 at a time.... took about 2 mins.
