How do you cash it out? Do you roll it yourself and take it to the bank? Do you use a machine like Coin Star? Are there other options? I have a smallish jar of change that I've been saving to buy children's books for my someday classroom, but since we have no idea when I'll actually have a classroom, it makes more since for me to cash it out now and let it be for DS's souvenirs on our trip. DH doesn't want to budget anything for souvenirs, but it's DS's first trip and I want tobe able to get him something, even if it isn't much. Anyway, not sure how to go about this. In the past, I'd have rolled it myself and taken it to the bank, but there is not a brick-and-mortar branch of our bank here. (USAA) How much does Coin-Star charge? I think I heard somewhere that they now do gift cards and charge less? Or that another, similar service?
