I use the CoinStar only for pennies
since vending machines don't take pennies,
and I choose "donate to Unicef" so there's no fee deducated.
I agree: I've never been credited nickles or dimes when counting pennies.

I no longer have any coins in the car's coin tray
since nearly all toll roads in NY/NJ/CT/PA/MD/VA
take E-Z Pass, but I use coins (particularly dollar coins)
when buying train tickets from the vending machines
and I need quarters for the laundromat.

I stopped keeping change in my car when the city began offering
pre-paid parking cards. They are $20 and $50. You insert them into a
slot on the meter. The stored value is displayed and then it deducts in
increments of 25 cents which is ten minutes in most neighborhoods and 5
minutes or less downtown. I have not had a parking ticket since using
these cards.

I count out my quarters but let coin start count out everything else.

I take my coins to my bank and use the coin counter there for free.

I save my coins as a type of savings plan. To me it is painless, just
empty my pockets at the end of the day. I emptied three years of coins
in a CoinStar and let it count the money and I had over $1,500! It
made a nice vacation.

BTW my bank will not cash more than a few dollars worth of coins even
with an account.
