    I had no idea that banks would be so rude.
    How can they refuse to take your currency?
    Like I said, I don't use banks for CRH. All of my rolls come from gas stations and 7/11 and small businesses.
    I ask for their hand rolled coins. They love getting rid of the heavy coins.
    In the course of my day, I drive past at least ten different banks. Stop in and ask. I've not been told no for wrappers.
    Then again, I don't buy boxes and the coins left over, the misses and I take a trip with every year.
    To each their own I guess.

    I didn't know it until recently. I'd been buying wrappers for years.

    Not Coin Roll Hunting
    Buying wrappers is for people who don't understand the industry. Re-crimp the bank wrappers and then the bank sends them directly back to the distributer. If you ever get a 100% skunk box, there's a chance it's one of mine.

I have once been told by a bank that I could no longer bring in any coins, as have MANY other CRHers over the ~10 years that I have been posting on this forum. I've had banks flat out refuse to sell me coins as well. One branch of a certain bank (at which I had an account), the head teller would not sell me even a single roll of cents stating, "those were for customers."

    Banks do NOT have to sell you coins or buy your rolls. Or, they can absolutely charge you a fee for either or both. All I was trying to say is that when I found a bank that was willing to do either for me, I was very appreciative and personally would not ask for "extras" on top of services they were already providing me for free, even though it was not free to them.
    Your right throughout the thread. When I first started CRH you could walk into almost any bank and ask for boxes, they had no problem taking them back...As time went on and more people doing it that changed. It's not the Banks job to put up with our hobby. On the flip side. when I was going through a lot of boxes I was straight forward with the CU in what I was doing and they had no problem giving me the paper rollers. we also ran a small coin shop for a short time and banked with them. So they knew they were supplying the wrappers for our coin business and our hobby of searching rolls. I think it all depends on situation. Open and honest communication with them goes a long way too. I wouldn't feel bad asking at a place where I'm a member and using all the services like loans, insurance,business account,checking, savings etc.. Nothing wrong with it. But to expect it or demand it is a whole different thing.

    Up here in the north banks appreciate our business and are very customer oriented. What some posters don't realized as they make a lot of money on your money with very little return to you. Without out your business the bank would fold that is of course you have accounts in banks that you are dealing with. If you don't have accounts and are just trying to use the business then I can see them telling you to get lost. And then is looks as though some have abused the system to the point that you are not welcome and I can understand the banks stance also.

    It doesn't hurt to be nice when you go into your bank.

    You don't have to buy coin wrappers.
    Your local banks will give you wrappers for FREE!
    Just ask.

    Yep and some Health Departments hand out condoms for free! They are better for protection of your' coins and hey, they even lubricate them. Just make sure you get the appropriate sizes for the coins you need to roll and protect.

    Could be worse.. We could be like Vancouver.. Their big brother set up government funded doping centers. They even provide nurses who supply the junkies with free needles.
    Free my butt.
