1. Why does using the Coinstar kiosk incur a fee?

Answer: Coinstar kiosks charge a fee to cover the cost of the coin counting service and maintenance of the machines. The fees are charged by Coinstar, not Pioneer AFCU. For coin deposits, Coinstar charges a fee of 5% of the total amount deposited. For depositing bills directly into your checking account, there is a flat fee of $5.95 per transaction. Our partnership with Coinstar provides an additional convenient option for our members to deposit their coins and bills directly into their accounts, especially outside of normal banking hours or when away from our branches.

2. Is there any way to deposit coins without paying a fee?

Answer: Currently, Coinstar is our only partner for coin depositing that offers direct deposit into your Pioneer AFCU account. We understand the concerns about fees and are always looking for ways to enhance services and reduce costs for our members. We continue to accept rolled coins at most of our branches, except the main branch. This allows you to deposit coins without a service fee.

3. Are there alternatives for cash deposits during off-hours?

Answer: No, Coinstar kiosks allow for deposits during off-hours, however, members can come into the branches and deposit during business hours.

4. What are the benefits of using the Coinstar service?

Answer: Coinstar kiosks offer a fast and convenient way to deposit loose coins directly into your Pioneer AFCU account, which is immediately available for use. This service is ideal for members who may not live close to a branch or need to deposit coins outside of normal business hours.

7. Can I deposit any type of coin at the Coinstar kiosks?

Answer: Coinstar kiosks accept most U.S. coins, but they do not accept foreign coins, damaged coins, or non-coin items. If you have unusual coins or items that the kiosk does not accept, it will ultimately reject them.

10. Can I use Coinstar kiosks to deposit into accounts other than checking?

Answer: Coinstar deposits can only be made into the checking account tied to the debit card used at the machine. However, you can then transfer funds to other accounts using our mobile app or online banking.

Answer: Yes, you can deposit up to $1000 in a single transaction at Coinstar kiosks. These limits are imposed for security and operational reasons.
