You may remember a post last year about a trial of a coin counting machine in our Flinders St branch, and how it’s saving our members time and money.
Members who have used the machine have given us some great feedback, and we've been asked by members using other branches to add expand the number coin counters we have.
The trial was so successful, and the feedback so positive, that we’re installing another 10 of the machines in the next couple of months. Our Windsor Gardens, Salisbury, Christies Beach, Modbury, Mt Gambier and Elizabeth branches will have the machines installed this month, with four more branches to follow soon.
The machines count coins at a rate of up to 2,500 per minute, which can save you (and our Service Consultants) a lot of time. And because our staff don’t have to weigh or count the coins, you don’t have to pay a coin handling fee.
Instead of counting coins into bags and then taking them to a consultant, you can pour all of your coins into the machine, which will determine their value and give you a receipt. You then take the receipt to the teller desk, and we deposit the money into your account
Watch out for the machines in branches.
