National Coin Shortage: What can you do to help?

August 28, 2020

You have probably walked into a store recently and saw a sign about the national coin shortage. It's a very real issue. Business closures, along with reduced staffing and production at the US Mint, have caused a coin circulation issue.

So, what can you do to help your local businesses? You could carry around a piggy bank to pay with exact change, but we have a few lighter suggestions:

Swipe your Debit Card
  • Both FSB Checking accounts reward you for swiping your debit card, so purchases can really add up.
Pay with your FSB Credit Card
  • Each purchase gives you points towards travel, merchandise and gift cards.
Tap to pay with Mobile Wallet
  • The truly "contact-less" way to pay. Just tap your phone and go.
