    Loose change - best place to cash in? 14th Dec 08 at 10:46 AM

    Not sure where this goes, but I reckon it's 'old style' saving.

    Over the last year I've been filling a Whisky tube with my loose change, anything less than 20p goes in. I reckon there's a good 40 quid in there which will pay for some festive Whisky (will get a couple of decent bottles with the Christmas discounts in the supermarkets!).

    So, I was thinking about taking it to one of the Coinstar machines, but they take commission and another percentage for charity.

    Would I get funny looks if I took it to the Bank? Will they give me money bags to count out the change?

    Or do I go in to Tescos and use the self service counter and put the loose change in coin by coin ?

  • Just had good chat with @amberruddhr about the CMA energy report. Nice that a Sec of State is listening.

  • And that misses student loan repayments which adds 9% at £21k (for post 2012 starters, different for others)

  • Apologies for the vulgarity but did the #Wimbledon bbc2 commentator just say "he doesn't beat himself off?"
