I went to the local store to trade in my pennies from the last 18 months. I think they added up to about 25 lbs. After about 2 mins it said the transaction cannot continue...
Now I'm waiting for manager...
Wonder what he is going to say... I did tumble the coins before putting them in. No wonder the coinstar people hate us detectorists...

I always use coinstar, and I don't tumble my coins. In six years I've never broken the machine. Maybe its
bag was just full.

I'm not cleaning anything if they are going to take 9.8%. They can clean them. Unless they get rejected, then I have an interest in cleaning them.

Amen. They make more than enough off of you to clean their own dang coins.

Roll 'em. Take them to the bank. Thinking about giving away 8 out of every 100 dug pennies makes me sad. hahah

One thing I like about coinstar is that if you choose a gift card instead of cash they don't keep,any of it. So I used my clad to get iTunes and amazon store credit.
