I get mine from my bank. They will exchange a roll of quarters for the equal amount of paper money.

I sell rolls of quarters, but I live in Spokane Valley Washington, I do not like to take my rolled money into the Coinstar, because they will take $12 for every $100 you put in there, and I feel that that is just ridiculous, but on the other hand when it's the weekend and you have a bill you need to pay or you're going to get canceled you have no other option, and that is where I'm at now, I need to sell my rolled change right now and I can't find anybody to purchase it because it's $300 in rolled quarters.

At the Coinstar in my local supermarket, you can get store credit instead of cash and then the fee is waived. Luckily, my credit union has a change machine that is accessible for customers so I take it there instead.

I, myself, being a 'slave to the laundromat', can relate to your problem. Here's what I do now: I get paid every 2 weeks. Every payday, when I take my check to the bank, I get 2 rolls of quarters. Whatever I don't use at the laundromat, I put in a jar that is specifically for my laundry money.


Sometimes, I end up with a few dollars extra, which I keep in there for emergencies (such as a stain needing immediate washing or if my kids should have an 'accident').

The bank is the correct answer. I used to try to avoid this because I have direct deposit and seldom need to go. Unfortunately, there is no other sure fire way to get a roll of quarters now.

I used to work at a 7-11, and I was always fine with giving out rolls of quarters. Most places aren't like this unfortunately. We had a timed safe that you loaded with plastic tubes. It was about 10 tubes high and 8 tubes wide. That meant there were two rows always filled with rolls of quarters, other stuff being 4 fives, 10 and two fives, 10 ones, etc.


We also had a drop safe where I worked in a Discount Food Mart.

Point being, if you know your convenience stores have a drop safe like this, you can get a roll of quarters there. They usually don't mind advertising that it's there. It's on a two minute timer, and it allows them to keep <$50 in the drawer at all times, while not allowing someone to steal more than one additional drop <=$20.

Where can I get a roll of dollar coins?

The bank, a grocery store, a gas station... just about any one will exchange paper money for change.

Thanks. That was prompt.

It's better to get them from the bank because grocery and retail stores only get so many rolls for the day. I used to work retail and it was no fun for someone to have to run to the bank for quarters.


Of course lots of stores have banks in them now.

A bank would be the best place! Most stores don't like to give rolls of quarters cause they know it's for the laundrymat.

That's not always true most stores don't really care, they aren't out anything. Mythi does have a point some stores only get alotted amount of change a day, a bank is the best place of all.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. And from experience, I found out that they really don't like to sell quarters. So I shall follow Julia's example and get those irritating quarters from the bank.


Kroger has a courtesy booth that exchanges paper money for quarters but I found the courtesy booth closed too.

Any bank should let you buy rolls of quarters. Or go to any grocery store and the service desk should excahnge out rolls of quarters for bills.

Is it legal for a store to charge 50 cents for a roll of quarters

Make sure it is your bank though. I just attempted to get a roll of quarters from Citibank and they wouldn't give me a full roll. They said I had to be a customer, but for some reason they gave $5 worth of a roll that they had to break open anyway.

I don't use a laundromat, however, when I take my kids to Fudruckers, I have used their change machine to get quarters for the games. I would think a lot of arcades (like in Memorial City Mall) would have them too..

at one of the laundrymats i go to has a change machine(which i found to be very rare because most if them in my area use either token like things or a card)

Try your grocery store. My 89-yr-old aunt uses quarter to buy snack and newspaper from the machines in her apartment complex. I do her grocery shopping once a month and always buy quarters from the customer service desk.


Don't bother trying at wal-Mart. They refused the one time I asked, and they lost my business.

Best place Ive found for quarters is Fuddruckers. I take the kids out for a burger, I get a beer and $40 in quarters from the convenient change machine in the arcade.
