Great as a charity box and just for dropping in lose change.

Will use mine as a secret santa gift or summat

cheap deal but from reviews dnt seem to work very well

I have 1 of these, sometimes it mistakes the 1p for a 5p

moneysaving tip......dont buy and count manually - saved 3.23...if you need somewhere to store it then use a box/tub

Read the reviews and, as has been said already, use a jam jar. Looks as if it will count just as well - maybe better.

Hi just buy one of those saving tins you can only open with a can opener you wont be tempted to take out money then.I started one earlier in the year (for xmas) and its nearly full.

Nice find, good stocking fillers for xmas, bought heat added

cold - save your £3.23 and your battery. They don't work. They'll be in the £1 shops soon.

I bought one of these for £5 from play last year...never worked at all.

+ it's more fun to take all your shrapnel down to one of those machines at the supermarket!

ordered from last deal on these - ordered 2 - returned 4...

shocking quality - but kids loved em

And pay the 10%....

quite hard to put 10 pences in I had to unscrew the lid and place the money in

Ive had one for about a year and it has never mistaken any coin for another. They are great and if used by kids will probably encourage them to save. At £3.23 its a great deal, if you can afford itoO, but if you cant then you will be better off saving the money as mentioned above and just bypassing the fun/novelty factor:p

I got one of these for Christmas, and yeah they don't work very well. Then again I didn't help by jamming a bottle opener in it for 5 minutes to rack up the display to show several hundred pounds!

£3 in B&M and it works great

these are pretty neat

This and a coin sorter makes saving fun for kids. It is heartening to see the money adding up and you know when you have reached a certain target (so they can buy the gift you have been encouraging them to save for). Sure, you can put in a jam jar and count manually, but this gets a pain for some people when they check on a number of occasions over a period of time to see how close they are to their target. Once your savings target is reached, tip into a coin sorter, marvel at the magic of it all, and then each receptacle holds a set amount (e.g. £1 in 5p coins) so you know how much is going into your bank bags.

My boy's has been reliable so far. The only time it mis-counts is when you only get a coin hyalfway in before the spring mechanism bounces it back out (it still counts the coin, even though it didn't drop). Then you have to put the coin[s] to one side and stick them directly in the jar once the rest of them are in.

Good for gifts, thanks OP.

I've just ordered this, not quite sure why its showing as expired?

Aside from the novelty value, the answer to your question is in the title ; 'coin counting money jar' .

If it doesn't appeal to you, why post ?

For me there a great idea, as others have said, it encourages your little 'uns to save for that promised toy / holiday pocket money etc.

Get your kids a savings account at the bank..... Total waste of £3 lol

omg sorry!

Don't see the point in teaching kids to save money.

Should encourage them to get credit cards.

Maybe because it might be worth a bit extra for one that actually works?

Will be redundant from Jan 2011 when the 5p and 10p coins change - Link

I just use a jam jar and once every few months shove it all down a self checkout machine...
