How is the limit enforced? per CC?

If I have more than one CC, can I do 1,000 on each CC, even if all CCs are in my name and at the same address?

That's how it has worked for me. For a while I tried juggling multiple email addresses, etc. But in the end, as long as it was a different CC number, the Mint would send it, even if the home address was the same.

So you can do multiple orders per email/per address as long as you have different cc?

Papal sources indicate that Cardinal Fang is less vindictive if you minimize your heresy, particularly as a percent of your total religious practices. YMMV.

Funny/sad/tragic story of the day: Took my coins to the TD Bank near my office to deposit. Unfortunately, this branch has a coin counter and they made me unroll $1,000 and run them through. Normally, I would have just gone to another bank, but I have to admit that I was curious to play with the big counting toy. Unrolling was easy. Getting the counter going was not. Apparently, their bags only hold 100 $1 coins at a time, so the teller was constantly moving the bags in and out. It took a good 20 minutes to do everything.

On the plus side, they have a contest where you can win a prize if you guess how much your coins will total withing $1.99. Much to my shock and amazement, I guessed right every time I deposited $250. My kids now have cute little TD Bank penny banks.

The TD Bank near me kept maxing out at 39 dollar coins! Needless to say, I have not returned to that branch.

Funny, the TD Banks near me take them rolled. At one branch the teller just counts the rolls to make sure I had the right amount on the deposit slip. At another branch the teller didn't even count the rolls. He actually kept them in the boxes in which the mint sends them.

Yup. That happened to me and it was the first time and the last time I went to use the TD bank which is 1/2 mile from home that I could literally walk to.

A very friendly teller had to stand next to the machine and changed bags whenever the machine said it was full - at $100 while the bag looked like could hold $2K at least. He explained the machine was programmed that way.

It is a shame that 2 out of the total 3 TD bank branches in our area are so close to home yet I could not make use of them because of its stupidly programmed penny arcades.

The ones with penny machines will generally make you unroll them. The one near my house doesn't have a penny machine, so they took the rolled coins.

I went into the bank near my office shortly after they opened this morning, so I also had a teller that could stand there and work with me.

branches in which there are machines are places I only plan to go to if I have time to pre-bag the coins and pour my bags into the machines, and not have to unroll them on the spot. Do it at home.

TDs in my area have penny arcades but it seems everyone knows they have limits so they are not asking me to break up the rolls to use in those.

I have had been to banks that just count the rolls as I tear them open to show (that's the most common and I use my car key to tear them so they flip open for them)

I have had some banks just take the unopened boxes once they know one has $250 in it. (rare but does occur now and then)

I had one bank where the teller used the Vulcan Mind Meld on me and just credited my acct without having to accept anything. I used my miniaturizer and now slid a postage stamp sized cardboard box that could have been in a doll house to her and she smiled and that was that.
