Can you pay someone in coin wrappers? Amazon sells 1000 wraps for $4.18. Each wrap holds 50 pennies. So it’ll cost ya $4.18 to wrap $500 of pennies–the wraps will cost less than 1% of your money (0.836). Not bad.
So 1000 wraps will hold 50,000 pennies. Stack 50,000 pennies up and you will end up with one cubic foot solid of pennies weighing over 300 pounds. Or instead of you wish to carpet your home, it will take up 192 square feet.
(whatever you do, don’t get ’em from Office Max, they cost $1.99 for a pack of 48 wrappers. That’s 9% of your money!)

i don’t feel like doing the math. how many pennies fit in one wraper?
each wrap holds 50 pennies.
Good question, I don’t think places that provide goods or services will take payment in rolled coins primarily because there isn’t any way to know if the roll is short without opening it and counting. Technically as it is money you should be able to use it anywhere, but you can’t use pennies in parking meters or on public transport. Pity. Maybe if I could I wouldn’t throw them away every time I get one
Just a quick Thursday morning thought — pennies are fun to have around –there are so, so many uses for pennies = one can wrap them, one can count them, one can put them in special books, one can fill up decorative jars, one can purchase necessary goods but……. wondering how many ones have actually polished a penny and believed it to be a treasure.
it’s always a treat receiving a fresh, bright, non-tarnished penny when receiving change from a cashier.
Ew, no it’s not
