Dollar Bill Frustration: Straightening a Dollar Bill at the Vending Machine

April 21st, 2014 | Posted by DT in Vending machine sales - (Comments Off on Dollar Bill Frustration: Straightening a Dollar Bill at the Vending Machine)

Have you ever been stuck at a vending machine, trying to feed your dollar into it over and over, while the vending machine keeps not accepting your bill? Don’t just struggle with the machine. Most soda and snack vending machines won’t take a crumpled up dollar bill, no matter how many times you try to feed it in.

How Can You Straighten a Crumpled Dollar Bill?

Rather than struggle at the soda vending machine, take your dollar bill and find a corner to a wall or other flat object. Holding the dollar bill at either end, run the dollar bill firmly and slowly against the corner of the wall. Repeat this a few times until the dollar bill appears flattened. Pay attention to the corners at either end of the dollar bill to ensure that none are turned up. At this point, you should be able to feed the dollar bill into the machine without any issues.

Apart from straightening your crumpled dollar bills, you may want to avoid them entirely. Consider investing in a wallet and keeping all of your dollar bills organized neatly within it. Also avoid getting your dollar bills wet, as this can further crumple and damage them.

To accommodate credit and debit card users, cashless vending machines are becoming more commonly available. Keep an eye out for vending machines with electronic payment options everywhere you go. You’ll be surprised by how many you come across.
