Hope someone has some insight on this. I live in north Saskatoon, and used to have 3 Coinstar machines in my neighbourhood. Over the past year they have all been taken out; the last one disappearing about a month and a half ago. Now their Canadian website seems to have vanished as well. Have they ceased operations in Canada, or are there still machines elsewhere?

In Smiths Falls Ontario at the Independant Grocer there is one still operational.

Hi Rusty F,

These machines are harder to find and have been pulled out of use in a lot of places in Canada...there was a class action lawsuit brought for people who used the machines from 2013 - 2016 citing inaccuracies in the machines that were short-changing customers...if you Google the topic there is an article about TD removing the machines from their branches...hopefully this info helps...

I don't think many members would use these machines. Personally, doing it by hand works for me. Then you don't have the feeling of did the count match the deposit,or have to pay any fee's. They are fun to check out for rejects though. I only have one locally, and it may be gone. Haven't been to that store in a while. I'll see though. The coinstar thread on here is a blast. What people leave behind is crazy, but, free pickin's for us. Never found a thing in that machine by the way. .
