    I know we are supposed to talk about the link posted, but I don't wanna give away the surprise. It's a clean article, related to the change jar challenge.

    The dealership must've known he was going to pay in cash, its not like you can just walk in and pay cash these days for something major like that or else they look at you funny like you've just come from robbing a bank!

    Thats great that hes saved up and to buy all 3 of his vehicles!

    What an accomplishment! I find it odd, though, that he didn't cash those coins in little by little for paper currency over the years.

    Good for him! I probably would have traded the coins in for cash after about a year!

    He probably could have traded the coins in for cash each year and put the money in a CD or Certificate and watched it grow into even more money. Maybe that would have been too tempting to use it though, if it were not in coin form.

    WOW! That's amazing!

    There is no way I could hold on the change that long.
