    Soda Machine Clad Dump

    Hey hey hey,

    Do any of you guys dump your clad through soda machines? My buddy turned me onto it saying it was a quick way to get rid of a pocket full of dirty clad. I don't have a tumbler, but I find that most machines will take the dirty coins after just a rinse in water. One machine even gave back dollar bills after I put in 4 quarters and hit coin return. Has anyone ever seen any negative consequences from this? I'm sure the vendor won't be thrilled with them but it is certainly legal tender. Just wanted to get some feedback. Thanks!

    I'v heard of using soda machines But Haven't tried mainly because of the Amount I would have to put in
    would mean spending 15 Minutes to a half hour there emptying it out.
    If I were seen at a machine that long, it could cause Nosey people to
    have problems.

    A guy by the name of Mudpuppy on findmall mentioned it and I just had to try it. It works, dump in the money and hit the coin return. Worse case scenario, it's out of change and you get a soda!

    Coin star machines will take pretty much everything including dirty clad. If you choose to get your cash in the form of a gift card to places like Home Depot, Amazon.com. Or iTunes, with no charge. I also sometimes use my banks coin counter, and it too takes pretty much everything except damaged pennies.

    That's what I do also. I just tell them what they are, and they wont want to use them in their teller trays. I use the same branch we have personal and business accounts with for the last 12 years, never a problem, just hate rolling!

    oh man, years ago I used to use my gallon bucket of clad (from a few good years of beach storm hunting) to buy stamps for my own's company's monthly billing. I'd go down to the lobby of the post office and feed in $50+ dollars of dimes, quarters, nickels, etc....! Then hit the selection button to buy a roll of stamps I did this for about a year, anytime I needed a roll of stamps for my own company.

    Till ...... one day ... the lobby machine jammed ! (apparently a coin I'd fed in had a sand grain still on it or whatever) . The counter indicated I had, thus far, put in about $20+ of coins. So I was unwilling to walk away from good money. So I rang the lobby assistance button, to get an assistant to come out to help. The fellow came out, and used his key to un-lock the machine. Imagine his surprise when he looks in the tray, and sees all the brownish green coins! He spins around, looks at me, and yells ... "YOU!!!!"

    He explained that it was his job to open the machine, roll the coins, and send them off to the bank. However, about 1x p/month, he kept encountering a hundred or so filthy brown/green coins. After closely studying them, he determined they were legal tender. So he rolled them with the rest, and sent them off. *However*, the bank called the post office (apparently they traced the account #'s which were written on the rolls) to the post office. They had been giving the rolls out to customers, who ..... in turn ... complained to the bank. The bank, in turn, traced them back to the post office. The post office essentially told the bank "tough, that's your problem. It's legal tender". (what else were they going to do ?)

    So naturally the postal worker had lots of questions for me. In the end, we each had a good laugh, and he didn't care

    Thanks everyone. I did dump a bunch of clad in the coinstar at Giant once and it jammed the machine. The lady came and opened it up and saw my dirty clad and was not happy. I guess I will roll from now on, seems easier.

    I use my clad at the local car wash but that only works for the quarters. I guess I will have to wrap the rest.
