    I use the self-check-out at the supermarket which has a coin deposit slot! The other machines might be faster, but I was able to get rid of about $15 in nickels, pennies and dimes when I paid for my groceries!

    Just did a second run. I had 28.96$ in coins and the machine gave me 28.94$ so it is really accurate.

    But unlike my first attempt, I was able to get the money right away.

    Woohoo, Hamilton! You are getting a coin counter at the BMO location now reopened at Lime Ridge Mall. Got the email from Cadillac Fairview (see why it's worthwhile to be on the mall mail lists).

    Tiny fine print-depositing the counted coin into your account (have to have the receipt) can count towards the bonus offer.

    Community Savings Credit Union's Burnaby branch (in British Columbia), also has a free coin counting machine. You don't have to be a member to use this free service. There's more information about it at http://www.freechangecounter.com.

    It's great to know of financial institutions that offer these coin counters! (Not just stores that have them with a min. required purchase condition in order to use the receipt. I remember when SuperFresh existed-the bottle deposit money was a printed receipt generated-once I fed that return table with bottles- that one had to redeem at checkout to get the cash-so 1980s!).
    Like the idea of using a pocketful of coins to pay at self-checkout because then you are not left to buy a min. grocery purchase in order to redeem a coin counter receipt! Must have patience and time to pull off that endeavour, I'm sure!

    My local RBC gives me the paper rollers so that I can roll my own at home. I find that more convenient than taking a bunch of loose change to the bank. I never have to roll huge amounts, so it's manageable. Ask at your bank, I'm sure they all give them to customers free of charge.

    The only "free" rollers are the ones I would have to download and print at home if I were to use the penny rollers to identify them for a hospice fundraiser, which has deposits made through RBC.
    TD Canada Trust is unlikely to provide free anything, including rollers. Pretty much have to contend with the bags of coin wrappers available at the local dollar store for loose coins.

    Though I bet any volunteer group collecting coins for donations would certainly appreciate any kind of assistance with the coin counting, tallying and wrapping. A portable BMO coin counter could be a hot commodity in fundraising circles!

    The coinstar at the Metro on King & Rosedale in Hamilton allows you to take the receipt to Customer Service and receive cash.
    You don't have to buy anything at the store.

    Does anyone know if there are any coin machines in the Maritimes? I have never seen them any where! I live in PEI, but do lots of shopping trips to NB and NS. I could being change and have some extra spending $$$.

    Very cool - thanks for the info. Seems BMO is kicking things up a notch so they can compete with TD and their aggressive media campaigns!

    Now if only BMO would stay open past 4pm on certain weekdays....
