    With the coin shortage presently happening, looks like more businesses are trying to keep change on hand. Loves clerk asked if I wanted to round up a sale total for a donation yesterday. The way she worded it, was like a part of the sale. I declined, and had her give me all change that was due from the sale. Don’t fall for this trick. Keep your change!

    Pilot and Flying J have been asking to round up lately... But they are legitimately donating all that money to Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

    She should have given me an extra $10 back, as compensation for her bad attitude.

    I've seen a few places doing this. I think it's a little bit of a PR stunt to make asking for your spare change not look so bad.

    I thin knots kind of cool that they ask to round up. A few coins towards a good cause don't hurt. They ask me to do that and I usually pay with a card. Its borderline pointless to pay with cash these days. Very few places require me to use cash, maybe an occasional farmer's market that I go to
     
    Coffey and LoSt_AgAiN Thank this.

    Change shortage. BS. Pure BS. Just another way businesses are trying to keep a little more of your money, coupled with our crazy society thinking you are going to die if you touch anything right now.

    I agree, they’re trying to make everything cashless where you can only use debit/
    credit cards, etc.

    Ya and that money of yours that they are "donating" gets them a tax write off.

    I do that anyway and I think most people are happily on board with it. I prefer cash for a lot of things but haven't carried change in years except in my ashtray. Still, I'll get a bigger ashtray before I give more to a billion dollar corporation.
