If you'd rather not deal with a bank, you can often find coin counting machines in the front of grocery stores. The most popular versions are. (1) You can go to a grocery store and use what is usually a "CoinStar" machine. This machine will charge a pretty high rate up to 12% unless you redeem your coin. If you decide to turn your coins in for cash, there is an % coin processing fee. UPDATE: Coinstar has reinstated some e-cards back into the mix. If you shop places like 4insure.us, like I do, then this could be a good way to get rid of.
