TD bank. Change counter

I went to a TD bank the other day with a bunch of roller up coins... They told me that i didnt need to roll these up anymore and pointed to a machine in the back.

Apparently they have a machine that counts your change and deposits it into your account with no commission fee :-0
Is this @ all TD banks or is it only at select locations?

If this is only for select branches... Feel free to post the branches where you've seen this machine

-Toronto. Coxwell and danforth location.
-Toronto. York Mills and Leslie TD.
-Burlington. Appleby and Rebecca

This is currently a pilot in select branches in the GTA. The idea was taken from Commerce Bank in the US whom they recently acquired.

Don't you work for RBC? :cheesygri

They'll be in every branch eventually. It's a great way to draw people in.

The branch at Appleby and Rebecca in Burlington has one too.

I went to the one across the street from Oakville place one night while I was in the area to get rid of my change (the one in Burlington was out of order that morning because it was full) and the teller pointed me towards a Dominion!

I've put quite a few coins into it already.

Before i knew the thing existed I went into the branch with a machine with rolled coins and non-rolled coins. I deposited the rolled and some of the non-rolled and the teller didn't even point me to the machine. (which would have made is life easier.) I just happened to see the machine on the way out.

And we had onions tied to our belts and told stories that didn't go anywhere!

Many of the ones in grocery stories give you a slip of paper to spend or exchange with a cashier and charge like a 10% fee.

Wow they should post the list of branches that offer this on their website and advertise it like crazy. Everyone hates dealing with loose change this would be a big customer draw.

I got rid of a huge bag of US coins at a Commerce Bank in the states last year. Although it seemed like it was targeted at kids (it offered $1 if you guessed the value of your coins correctly using a little cartoon character on the screen) anyone could use it - fee free! I have to admit, it was a little embarassing pouring in all the change into the machine as it churned and rattled away in the otherwise silent bank as "regular" customers conducted their normal business :lol: . Can't wait till one shows up at my TD bank - hopefully fee free too.
