Do you have a jug filled with coins? It doesn't do you any good to have it collecting dust as opposed to earning interest. What if there's just way too many coins to count on a Wednesday afternoon? Then, you may find yourself asking where can you find free coin counting machines.\r\n\r\nThe quick answer: there are fewer options available to the general public for free coin counting machine use.\r\n\r\nWhat are your banking options? Start with your bank and ask about their coin counters. If your financial institution doesn't have these machines, then call other local banks and credit unions. You may be lucky enough to find a local branch that allows the general public to get their coins counted.\r\n\r\nYour other option is to buy a coin-counting machine on Amazon (but they can be pricey) or simply buy coin wrappers at the dollar store. And painstakingly count and wrap them.\r\nFind a Coinstar machine to count coins for free\r\nThe last option is using a Coinstar machine you can find in some large retailers and supermarkets. There is a cost to use the Coinstar machine that can be upwards of around 12%. However, if you redeem your counted coins for an e-gift card, then the fee will be waived. You can also donate your coins without incurring a fee.
