  • Coin Sorting Machines

    I'm doing a clear up and found loads of small value coins, so I thught I'd stick them in one of thse machines that have at Asda to get money towards shopping, what I want to know is what happens if there is foreign coins mixed in there as well? Does the machine throw a fit?

      I used one once and anything that wasn't kosher it just kicked out.

        If I did that you'd be outta job!!

        Plus I don't fancy lugging 5 kilos worth of coins there and having to be told you need to remove the foriegn coins by hand and lugging it back home again, I wanna get rid of it!!

          It chucks them out. They can tell the difference.

          We did it a while back and we ended up with a few bits and bobs at the end that the machine didn't like.

              I don't work in Asda.

              I know what you mean diamond, maybe phone the place and see what they say.

                  yeh its usually 6p or 7p in every



                  but then again because banks only take set precise amounts in bags, its usually quite good taking your change to a coin sorter thing like in asda, cause then you get rid of it all rather than been lumbered with whats left over from the bank

                    I meant you'd be out of a forum post answering job

                    It's like when I once went into Abbey National to deposit a cheque, the women tell me I should put it in the machine, but I thought if everyone used the friggin machine she'd be out of a job!!

                      its not much commission they take. Its still worth it. If I remember rightly, they either give you cash and take commission or they take less commission and give you the amount in vouchers.

                        I think asda one gives you a voucher to spend on stuff in the store

                          Why not just bag them up & take them to the post office or bank

                            because the bags you have in the banks and post offices take a set amount and you might always be left over with a lot of crud that isnt quite enough to make up another bag in each type of coinage

                            do the asda thing or any coin sorter machine for that manner, donate a little to charity that you are hardly going to miss, and be left with no loose change in your hands

                              i was in charge of the one at work and it was 7%.

                              it prints out a coupon and you can have it off ur shopping or exchange it at customer services for cash.
                              might be different now though
