Paying in all coins should always be an option

Pay for your cup of coffee in all coins; it will help you out more than you think.

    I bought a ticket from a scalper for Star Wars: In Concert and I paid about 1/3 of it in coins. I handed him my plastic bag full of change. I got the ticket on the way to the door for $15 total. Star Wars on a budget! Now I need to build back up my coin collection~

    I love this. My husband and I are getting back to a cash-based way of living, and I think it really helps you appreciate the value of cash versus credit. Thanks for this article.

    I worked for Starbucks for many years, and trust me, we were super-excited to see someone with change, especially if that person was kind like you and waited for a break in the line. It often saved the manager on duty having to buy change at the bank!

    You take your life into your own hands trying to do that in the drive-through, though. ;D

    If you go to a coffee shop where there is only one barista working we are secretly cursing you. Just because you're not holding up a line doesn't mean you're not wasting the worker's time, and we don't get breaks so you really are keeping us from going to the bathroom, eating, or just having a glass of water. Do us a favor and at least count your coins out before your drink is finished. Don't make us stand there forever while you count it out, it's painful.
