Post Bank Coin sorting machines list - please add

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 put in a suggestion for one of my local branches to have one. They phoned me and said no they won't. The town has a population of 15,000. We have 2 HSBC brances. But they won't put one coin machine in them!? Annoying or what.

There is a HSBC coin thread somewhere with machines already on there. I'll try and find it!

http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/....html?t=549872

Found it. Read through that

I have fond memories of counting up my dad's coins that he used to store in an old cider bottle!
There is a coin machine in the HSBC Colchester North Station branch. It's more of a Business branch which is why I thought it was there.

Deposited what felt like a ton of coins yesterday at the coin machine in the Chester branch. It's very satisfying hearing the coins swish around in the machine and seeing the totals popping up on the screen and getting the printed receipt.

A lot better than bagging them up myself and using a paying in book !

The deposit also appeard on my internet banking straight away (this was a Saturday after all)

Tip top service HSBC

Are these HSBC?

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

I'm with you CP. I've never used the coin counting machines (didn't realise that some banks have fee free versions) but - except for the largest quantities - I think they take away another basic counting skill.

Give the coins to the kids to count with a small prize to the one who gets closest to the bank's machine total (make sure they wash their hands afterwards).

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?
