One day cash will become obsolete, rendered useless by the relentless march of plastic. Until then we'll have to make do with pesky paper and clunky coins. And what about those coins? Jingly, jangly nuisances that you bung in a jar and forget about 'cos you can't be bothered counting them. That's why you need the ingenious Digital Coin Saving Jar.
Doubles up as a clock too!
This nifty container is here to deliver you from all that coin counting malarkey as it keeps a running tally of your savings via the LCD display in its lid. Every time you slip a coin through the slot, the electronic counter adds it to the total. And if you need to make a quick withdrawal simply key in the amount taken and the counter deducts the coins from the total.
How to withdraw:
Twist off the cap...
How much do you intend to spend?...
Add the amount: the counter will deduct from the total!
The Digital Coin Saving Jar is a great gift for kids, tightwads and financially dense adults because watching the total rise encourages users to save their pennies. We're using one for petty cash here at Firebox HQ and it's amazing how much change you get from a few paperclips when this all-seeing, all-knowing money jar is around. Hmmm...
Takes 2x AAA batteries
Thanks to this time-saving device you won't have to guess how many coins you've got before bagging them up and banking them. Simply wait until you've got a decent whack (say, five pints' worth), untwist the lid and enjoy. Actually, maybe coins aren't so bad after all.
The whip round so far...
The Digital Coin Saving Jar is great for whip-rounds as you can see when you've raised that £2.50 for the boss's leaving do or that £250.00 for your birthday pressie. It's also a great post-pub gizmo because you'll never forget how much shrapnel you plopped in it before crashing out on the sofa. In fact this smart digital coin vessel is a must-have item for anyone who uses cash. And unless you're royalty or some kind of anti-establishment hippie, that means you. Ker-ching!

Measures approximately - 14.5cm(H) x 11cm(W) x 11cm(D)
This seems like a good product and I just wanted to ask, can you turn off the lid LCD display to save battery power? Emma, Kidderminster - 9th January 2012
Firebox says: Hi, The batteries should last ages as its a very low powered display, plus is doubles up as a clock! how cool is that!
This is great for counting our pennies. There's always a lot more in the jar than you think there is! Stacey, Sheffield - 28th August 2011
I haven't bought it 'yet' but I was wondering roughly how much can the jar hold? Michael Cox, Hamshire - 24th April 2011
Firebox says: Good question and I guess it depends on if you are putting in pennies or pounds! The dimensions are: 14.5cm(H) x 11cm(W) x 11cm(D)
Got this to help the boys save for their holidays, and they were really excited to use it, however, for some reason I has decided the a 2p coin is a 10p coin :S, Every other coin is fine (including the 10p) no major issue, I just need to remember to "withdraw" 8p for every 2p entered - a bonus as it helps the boys with their subtraction! Genius! Alex Forty, Worcestershire - 15th March 2011
This is a great product. I bought it for my mum for mothers day and I tested it, and it worked really well. I hope she likes it. Rosie Meredith, GB - 9th March 2011
Hi, how can you add notes to the electronic total? Will, Rotherham - 29th July 2010
