    Bank Coin sorting machines list - please add 30th Dec 09 at 11:40 AM
    Hi Everyone,
    I am trying to locate a nearby bank branch coin sorting machine. I'm with FD, so called to ask. As always, customer service is ace with them, and the lady disappeared to find out how to look this up for me. First obstacle, there is no definitive list available even to staff. So, you have to specify a branch, they look it up, and read out the list of facilities. And no, it's not on the HSBC website.

    Now, since these machines are free to account holders of their respective banks, I'd expect that serious MS would want to find them and use them rather than pay the recently increased commission of 8.9% to Coinstar.

    So, please post the Bank name and Branch name if you have used a machine. If they can't work out how to tell us, we'll have to do it for them.

    I doubt there are any near me so will the banks change all my coins or do they only change a certain number of money bags?

    Are these HSBC?

    Anyone know of central London/City Natwest Branches that offer this service?

    Yeah those are all HSBC branches, sorry i didn't clarify cos it started off as HSBC machines at the beginning of the thread.

    Also the Portsmouth Natwest branch refers to big one in Commercial road in the city centre.

    I enclsoe below a copy of the e-mail I received some time ago from HSBC Customer Service on how to use the Coin Deposit Machines:


    Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding our coin deposit machines. I can confirm that in order to use the machine you will need to insert your HSBC debit card of the account you wish to credit then deposit your coins into the chute.

    There is not need to bag up the coins as the machine automatically counts them for you. I would however request that if you have a lot of coins, you deposit them gradually as excessive amounts at the same time can cause the machine to jam and freeze.

    Hello,

    I've just stumbled upon this thread, so can I ask a question please?

    Firstly, I didn't know these excisted, hence my question, I've always taken coins to Coin Star Machines, and paid the fee, assuming the only other way was to bag them up and end up being a few coins short on all the bags, thus not being able to pay them in.

    So, If I take my coins to a machine at HSBC, do I get a receipt which I then take to the cashier who gives me the money. In the same way as the Coin Star works.

    I don't bank with HSBC so can't pay the cash in.

    From what's been said you need to be a HSBC account holder (current)

    Any HSBC account will do so long as you have the sort code and account number.

    There is a list of HSBC machines with coin sorting machines in this thread

    HSBC also provide details of the facilities branches have here - though they does not include details of all UK branches.
