Thread Details

My coins have been piling up for longer than I care to mention. Embarrassment Since I am your typical SD cheap-azz, I'm in paying 9% of my change to those Coinstar machines. I started searching everywhere. Many banks charge, unless you are one of their top-teir customers. That is if they have counting machines at all. Most in this area do not. Finally, I found a bank that does it for free. You don't need an account with them! It's free to the public! woot _____ Clink: PACIFIC TRUST BANK


Pacific Trust Bank's __Ex-CHANGEFREE Self-Service Coin Machines __ At all full-service office locations

For added customer convenience, at each office location Pacific Trust Bank has Ex-CHANGE self service coin machines – a free coin counting and exchange service. Whether you are currently a Bank customer or not, individuals and families are encouraged to bring in their cookie jars, piggy banks and loose change to have their coins counted and exchanged for cash or a deposit into their Pacific Trust Bank account. You can find Ex-CHANGE coin machines at our offices in Chula Vista, El Cajon, Clairemont Mesa, Rancho Bernardo, Temecula and Riverside.
It's FREE!
Unlike some coin machines found in supermarkets or other stores that charge a usage fee of up to nearly nine percent to count change, Ex-CHANGE coin machines at Pacific Trust Bank is a free service for individuals. Pacific Trust Bank is the first bank in southern California to provide its customers with access to free, self-service coin counting machines. And, we welcome anyone* in the community to come in to deposit their coins.
*To keep our Ex-CHANGEmachines available for other customers and the public to use, business use must be restricted and use of the machines may be limited for those with very large quantities of coins. The Ex-CHANGE coin machine is easy to use, and is also designed to introduce children to important money-saving concepts. Customers simply pour their loose change into the machine’s coin tray and push the start button. In seconds they receive a receipt that can be exchanged at the teller window for cash, or the funds can be deposited directly into a Pacific Trust Bank account. Once the coins collected through the Ex-CHANGE machines are counted, they will be placed in the bank’s inventory and redistributed to Pacific Trust branches and customers that are in need of them. Got Coins? - Pacific Trust Bank is the place to stash your cash!

There is another bank offering this service free, but only to members. It is Wescom Credit Union. They only have 1 location in San Diego County with a coin counting machine, but many locations in L.A. Clicking the following link will give you all locations:

Clink: __ Wescom Credit Union __ Oceanside 2224 S. El Camino Real, Oceanside, CA 92054 __ (BTW, these guys are actually open on Sundays!!! ... EEK! Freaky!)

That pretty much covers locations for North, South & Central County. If you know more places in San Diego County, please post them. This is my first post. So... Click image for larger version

Thanks! We usually go to Coin Star and just get an amazon certificate (no fee for gift certificates) since we shop there a lot anyway. If we're ever pressed for cash, it's nice to know that there's a place near us to get cash without a fee.

I have checked most banks in this county and found no others that offer it fee-free. Many do not even have the machines.

Which banks have you found in San Diego County offering this???

I edited the post to explain the second bank listed has many locations in L.A. But they offer it to members. Some Credit Unions extend services to members of other Credit Unions. Also, the free one has an office in Riverside.

Here is the link to all their locations and hours, etc: http://www.wescom.org/access/bran...dhours.asp
