Coin Jar with Digital Counter £2 @ Primark

Found 24th Jun 2011
Saw it on Primark today. It was in Liverpool branch but I'm assuming it's available to any Primark branch. It's good to get your kids this one because it has digital counter which keep track of the savings so far. Hopefully it would be fun for kids!

It is powered by 2 x AA batteries. I saw on the tag that it was originally £6 but they reduced the price. So I assumed it's a bargain!

have one of these plastic but not bad quality
Very plastic. I got one for Christmas a few years back. Currently displays contents totalling £24.31.
They don't work very well but for £2 not bad at all!
I got one of these at xmas, worked fine at first but now it doesnt read 5p's and counts 1p's as 5's.
Kids Bought one for my husband for fathers day (for £5 from play.com) - he loves it and all his change goes in it. This is cheap so a good buy imo.
haha got my kid one of these a year ago.
1p as £1,2p as 50p,its funny the recognition quality of it
We should recommend that NCR use these coin counters in their self service checkouts- we'd be quids in.
i have a "safe" versiopn from M&S and i can't remember the combination

even had the battery out for weeks but it still won't let me in

Does the counter start on minus £2?

Doubt it. Joe Public would soon screw it up by tossing blu-tac, hair clips, passport photos and items of jewellery into it.(_;)
Decent sized bank, but complete waste of time when it comes to counting money. Heat added for price.
I have one of these, don't know where it came from but it looks very similar. I never have a problem with it recognizing coins.
I bought this wen it was like a quid. The counter is kind of rubbish but it's a good jar to keep money in

sorry for the picture i've posted. i can't find online the exact picture of the one in primark so don't decide the quality just looking at the picture. i've got the black one which is a bigger jar size than what's in the picture and the coin recognition works perfectly. and the jar make although plastic is the sturdy one (well at least that's the kind primark are selling).
Got my son one of these last Xmas from Ethel Austins for £4.99. So this is a bargain.

Seems to recognise all the modern money OK but mistakes the old (bigger) 10p coins fot £2 coins!
home bargains have this too

I love these comments, if they don't work very well, why would you buy them?

I'll give you a glass jar that you can then count your money yourself, that works a treat, now where's my £2.00?

I see your point but the price is cheaper than normal (good deal), they are meant for kids, it's not as if you'd use them to store your savings in!

Just a bit of fun for people under 12
