If you're sitting on a stash of coins, now is the time to cash them in.

According to some reports, there is a national coin shortage in banks and businesses are now running low on change.

You may have noticed that some businesses are now just taking credit/debit cards or you must have the exact change to make a cash purchase.

So what can you do to help alleviate the problem? Well, for one you can get all of the coins you've been saving and take them to a coin dispenser and cash your coins in.

Some places are waiving fees and they are asking folks with lots of "change" to cash them in. You can often find places to cash your coins in at superstores or grocery stores.

Let's all do our small part to get coins back into the rotation being that many folks just aren't out shopping as much as we were before the coronavirus pandemic.
