A jar with a lid. The lid contains a screen and a slot for coins which counts as they are dropped in. Was going to get 1 for eldest for Christmas but wasn't paying £10 from a gadget shop. Glad I waited, got 1 today and it works fine. Not inc batteries so be sure to rob some double As from the remote control.

Good as a gift. My wife bought a jar for herself. If you're hoarding coppers at an almost illegal rate you'll be emptying it very often though as it's pretty small. I too, would rather keep the £3.99, and buy different jars: ones that contain beer. Give you some heat anyway.

Ha ha! So funny. If you know someone who is always saving coppers and when it comes to tipping into the coin star, these will be used on a regular basis.

My MIL bought some of these for the kids for Christmas, think she paid full price though, they love them.. so great price.

Great price for this - I was looking at these before Christmas and so nearly bought one for £10. Shame I don't have a Home Bargains anywhere near me!

got one at Xmas but makes errors as if you put a £1 in, it recognizes it as a 20p. Avoid

lol sounds like my wife.

i got one of these for christmas last year its ok but you have to put money in slow, i just chuck the change in anything now then take down tesco to the money counter machine

I don't know why anyone uses them coin counter machines, they charge a SILLY amount. It's just laziness.

Doesn't take long to count, or get the bags from any bank.

Got one of these for xmas there, its pretty good as when your sticking your spare change in the jar etc you dont know how much you have

I still think these are a waste.
Think about it....
After it has saved you from counting your change.......
You tip it out and guess what?
You have to count it into bags to take to the bank.
Er....what has it saved you from doing?

The sort of people who accumulate mountains of coins rather than providing the correct amount at shops are the type who would be too lazy to count them, so it fits.

I got one of these a few years ago, still use it now but it isn't very good. When I put in 20p's, it recognises them as 1p's the same with £1 for 20p etc. It bearly ever gets it right, so u end up just shoving it all in!

Ah you mean the type of people that cause a queue in shops while everyone has to wait whilst they count their change out on the counter. Then realise they don't have enough change to pay it and give the cashier a note anyway.

Nope. I don't mean the ones at the other extreme, I mean the vast majority nicely in the middle who are able to find change as quickly as the cashier is able to dole it out to them.

If you read he means the people who will give the cashier a £2 coin instead of the £1.59 even though hey have the change for it, so are always constantly accumlating more and more change. I do this not because I am 'lazy' but because I am being considerate of the people queing behind me. but if you are so agro about it maybe all of us considerate people should start counting change and holding you up more huh?

and when I used coin counters at morrisons there was no charge so I dont know where you do yours? Also even if there is a charge, I would gladly pay it. If you like walking into a post office with 3 massive glass jars of coppers and asking them to change them for you, then be my guest.

Bought one of these for xmas for my 18 year old son, as he keeps leaving his change around.
Now he realises how much he has in change he uses it all the time!:-D

Great find! Thanks!

Oi! If everyone paid by card we wouldn't need coins, if we had no coins jeans pockets would last longer.

No charge? Mine Charges like 7.9p per pound. But yeah it's worth it.

Good Find

Heat Rep added!

I got one of these for Christmas and it's rubbish. Mine reckons 1ps are 20ps and doesn't acknowledge 20ps at all. I don't care how much I have anyway, I'd throw my coppers away if I didn't get a feeling of wastefulness so I just pop down to the nearest coin star when my pot's full and spend it on something I otherwise wouldn't buy.

On the other hand, would be a good thing for kids to have if it was reliable, but it's not so it isn't.

There must be some faulty ones about. The 1 we have is pretty accurate but we only use it for coppers not silver as people generally spend silver or £1 coins.

Bought one of these from play and it does a good job

Mine has always worked fine, if ya getting incorrect ammounts being put in when ya put a 1p in.. then its cus ya not pushing with force... so yeah be warned.. remember it the jar judges it by like the size so maybe pushing to far right will set of a different ammount....

and yeah i have one of these. got £23.70 atm in there.... will empty it when its full.. think that will be around £40 mark... good to save for that nice drink once in a while =)

This looks good! I normally take my coins to Asda but they charge for this so this is a much better way to do it then just change it at the bank! Thanks :-) So banks still change bags of coins for notes?

What kind of people carry around 99pence instead of pound coins?
