I know this was mentioned on the show yesterday. This has nothing to do with that. I have a few jars on my desk that I always empty my change into. Once they fill up (about once a year.) I usually roll them all up, take em to the bank and then just spend the cash on something that I "want" but don't really need. It's usually somewhere between $250-300. This time around, I was lazy and didn't want to roll them myself. I looked into those coinstar machines to see how much money they "charge." They have a deal with Amazon that if you select "receive your funds in an Amazon gift card," youy don't get charged at all. Pretty nice. It only took about 10-15 minutes to count all 30lbs worth of coins. I just ordered a new 500GB hard drive, 1gb of ram for my laptop and a few books and movies. Wiped that thing right out.
