-Do grocery shopping with them - go in with a cart load of coins come out with a cart load of food... The coin for food program if you will .

Personally with cash at a premium and the auto industry in dire needs, I would to take this down to the local car dealership and trade in 12,000 coins for a car just to annoy them. Thats after I tell them I need the best deal because I will pay fully in cash. May even throw in a few quarters and dines just for fun.
Hmm... Like the idea of using $1 coins for buying a car... especially at the dealerships that don't accept CC's as payment

(That way you do earn miles after all )

I used these a lot in NYC where places didn't take my Visa & as tips occasionally.
