A Bank Is Paying For People’s Spare Change

A WISCONSIN BANK IS PAYING PEOPLE TO BRING IN THEIR SPARE CHANGE TO HELP LOCAL BUSINESSES AMID THE COIN SHORTAGE

(CNN) – A Wisconsin bank has come up with a creative way to help local businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic and the coin shortage it has caused.

The Community State Bank has launched a coin buy back program.

People who turn in $100.00 worth of change to one of the bank’s seven locations will get a $5.00 bonus, whether you’re a bank customer or not you can receive a bonus of up to $500.00.

The bank says hundreds of people have already dropped off their spare change and some have brought in coins without asking for anything back.

The shortage was a result of the partial closure of the economy, which halted the flow of coins.

The bank says it will continue the program until there is no longer a demand.
