    Nice one I am always amazed how much money is dropped and not picked up. My daughter who is 5 shounted to me in a shop mummy I have found a coin, everybody was like aah bless her, when I looked at it it was a £2 coin the peoples faces in the shop dropped.

  • Always pick up coins off the street no matter how little it is.

    I used to do this in school - other people used to throw away all their "shrapnel" - i used to find around £1 - £2 a day in lose change, sometimes found a few pound coins into the mix as well - made me upwards of £10 a week
    No Longer works for MBNA as of August 2010 - redundancy money will be nice though.

    I have heard that the best time/place for finding money is Saturday/Sunday mornings in pub/nightclub car parks.

    Dont know how true this is as I am not an early riser, but I saw a friends coin collection from the Xscape car park in Milton Keynes and he used to get about £5 on a good morning walk!

    We often go past Tescos and the chippy at lunch time and the amount of change the school kids drop is STARTLING - just coppers usually but my 5 year old has a great time running round spotting them!!
