I don't roll coins. And how do they even know how much is in the roll unless they weigh it?
Last fall I desposited about $125 in change at my bank and it took their coin counting machine perhaps a minute or so to sort it. It's hard to justify those Coinstar machines that charge 8.9% when a bank can count over $100 per minute (free in my case).
And banks should be happy to get change. After all, store owners need choins to give as change. If people like me didn't turn this stuff in, they would have no change to give stores. Seems like the bank needs me just as much as I need them.
