Any Wells Fargo branch accepts rolled coins from depositors. They don't take them when you open an account but once you establish an account they take a couple hundred a day.



How about without rolling them?

The Wells Fargo I went to last week would not accept them unless they were rolled. That is a change for them as they used to accept my water jug full of coins.

Semi-related (but didnít want to start a new thread). In the Bahamas, the penny is apparently no longer legal tender. Transactions are rounded up or down to the nearest nickel.

Sign from Atlantis, by the cage.

Not sure how to rotate it.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Are they talking US coins or Bahamian cents?
The Bahama currency is strange in that a US Dollar =a Bahamian Dollar but then a strange ratio kicks in so $100 US=something like $100.50 B, and when you get up to $10,000 the difference is substantial.
I see the sign says both.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Having the misfortune of going to a laundromat on the road today, and the change machine was out of quarters. I donít visit laundromats often but thatís the first time Iíve ever seen that. Iím holding you hoarders indirectly responsible if the two quarters I have left after wash donít adequately dry my clothes!!!
(dryer machine says 0.50 but most laundromats you need to pump a couple more In to adequately dry)

Iíll blame who I want tho. Nope, not dry but I did manage to change $1 for quarters to someone who DID NOT charge me a premium. Now itís going to be like toilet paper Iíll have to start hoarding it myself in case I need to do laundry on the road.

My bank, Umpqua, has a machine that sorts and counts change and they let me use it for free whenever I ask.

I had the same problem with an earlier nationwide coin shortage.

I was very pleased to notice a coin-op carwash across the street, got my change there, did laundry and played the coin-pusher for a while.

(Some coin pushers have integrated bill changers; sadly, this one did not.)
May the cards fall in your favor.

I had a strange experience at the Dollar store near me. I stopped in for a gallon of milk but noticed they had keto brownies for $3.25 or 2/$5. I get to the cashier and the brownies ring up for $3.25 each. I mention the sign says 2/$5 and she immediately calls the manager over. I tell her about the sign and she rings them in and they still come up $3.25 each. I say I don't want them and she rings up the milk. I hand her a $20 bill and she pushes it back. They aren't accepting $20 bills Evidently, the armed car services are incredibly short of drivers and Cochise County is so remote they can't spare a truck and have greatly reduced deliveries. I swiped my debit card but this is the first time I've encountered a store not taking $20s.
