No Financial Sense Means No Cents

Let me apologize in advance if I end up offending you but I JUST DON’T GET IT!

Every time I’m at the grocery store, I see a dodo at a Coinstar machine cashing in their change.  Don’t they realize that they are paying 9.8%!

It reminds me of  the days when my kids would have happily accepted TWO one dollar bills in exchange for their ONE five dollar bill.

At a time when savings accounts at banks are paying .2% interest, giving up 9.8% is outrageous!  Makes me want to put my name and phone number on the machine with a note saying, call me, I’d be happy to drive to your house, give you cash for your coins and only charge you 6%, and by the way, I have some swamp land in Florida you might be interested in.
