Yes, the best way to convert coins to cash without incurring fees is using the coin deposit machine into a kids account at DBS/POSB. Used to be unlimited, now it’s limited to 1,000 pieces free per month.

My daughter has thousands of dollars in her account from coin deposits - in fact that is all we have ever deposited in there!

My problem is I quit smoking 16 years ago and 13 years ago I went on a diet which meant I started takin3g my lunch to work. No way to accumulate the $3 or $4 dollars every day in change. Now sometimes I don't even break a tenner in a week. Especially since I retired. Guess their parents gonna have to practice it. :lol:

I’ve gone pretty much cashless except at the hawker centre.

I use Citi SMRT visa for the groceries, fast food and public transport, StanChart Unlimited for everything else except on rare occasions when I gas up the wife’s car - for that I use the DBS Esso card which doubles as an ATM card. For low spenders like me, this 3 card system seems to give me the most value.

Yes, i use posb as well, they have a few coin deposit machines in Singapore. It's quite useful and they accept mixes of denominations.
