Quarter dispenser as well as ATM

As a renter who uses a quarter operated washer/dryer the biggest set back to having BECU as a bank is that I can't get rolls of quarters from the bank. Instead I have to go into other banks to get these rolls, often getting asked if I have an account with them. I think BECU should have quarter dispensers available!

I use quarters for my kids' allowances, too.  There used to be a bank branch at our grocery store that I could buy rolls of quarters from, but they moved out a few months ago, and I don't have a good source for quarters any more.

I have meetings fairly often in Olympia and need quarters to pay for parking.  Currently I have to hit the local laudromat to get quarters at their change machine.  I also like to get coins to the Tooth Fairy.  It's so much more fun to get a stack of coins than a dollar bill.  Again, I stock up at the laundromat but would prefer to be able to do this at the ATM or near by.

As a renter, this is definitely an issue for me as well.  Especially since tellers at other banks or cashiers at other businesses (understandably) can get a little irritated when I come in asking to buy a roll of quarters.  I live in the U-District, so a lot of businesses get run out of quarters by waves of students on a somewhat regular basis.

@meg- There aren't plans in our future to explore coin dispensers due to the cost and maintenance involved. We balance those considerations with a focus on the entire membership. Thanks for sharing your idea, keep them coming! Cheers, KristinA
