    20p Savers Club 2017 24th Dec 16 at 5:58 AM
    Hello and Welcome to the brand new shiny 20p Savers Club 2017

    This thread runs similar to its sister thread the £2 Savers Club; there are no rules as such and you can join at any time of the year.

    The main aim is to have fun and pop in occasionally to post how you're getting on

    I have kept the list as per last year, so everyone has the same number.

    Should you wish to join, feel free to pm me or drop a note on here and I'll add you to the list


    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

    Currently got £5.80 worth.

    Just before Christmas I took my coin tin in to the bank and used the coin machine thing. Think I got just over £100 but I hadn't been at it very long.

    I keep looking round the house for more 20ps!

    Only just spotted this thread and I'm in if allowed. I made a money box from an empty margarine tub and just take the 20p coins out of my change every day and put them into the money box. So far I have exactly £10 since summer 2016

    Here's a pic:



    Edit: I'm restarting for 2017 from scratch so right now I have nothing in my money box Looking forward to the next 20P I get in my change.

    I'm up too £7.20 after a quick count today. That's not bad.

    I guess these days with contactless payments and credit and debit cards always on hand it's not always easier to use cash. I think I have a happy mixture of both, really. I'm also collecting fivers at the moment.

    I agree, I don't think money is used as much, someone I was talking to last week mentioned that he thinks in the next 10-20 years cash won't exist, how we have it now, everything will be cashless. Which I agree with him, but I think it'd be a shame.

    I've added 60p this week. I have no idea how much is in the tin (it's sealed and I haven't been keeping track) so hopefully will have a nice surprise at the end of the year!

    But in that case we won't be able to check our 20p coins for rare ones and make pots of cash if we find one

    Woot got my first 20p coin of 2017 today. Looking forward to many more.

    Morning Thora,

    Apologies, for some reason I didn't get a notification that you'd posted.

    I've now added you to the list on the first page.

    You can include your 20p total to the SPC total, I do

    Happy saving
