Coin Shortage Strikes Walmart, Customers Required To Pay With Card At Self-Checkout

A nationwide coin shortage is hitting major retailers across the US. Walmart is the latest retailer, and the largest, to announce, customers must use credit and debit cards when making purchases. 

"Like most retailers, we're experiencing the affects of the nationwide coin shortage," Walmart spokesperson Avani Dudhia told FOX 8. "We're asking customers to pay with card or use correct change when possible if they need to pay with cash."

Cash-paying customers are still welcomed at all stores, though self-checkout registers will only allow customers to pay with a card.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell recently said virus-related lockdowns raised concerns about coin circulation. He told AP that the "flow of funds through the economy stopped" due to closures in the economy. 

Walmart was not sure how long the ban on money at self-checkout registers would last, considering it's a nationwide issue. 

We've noted a handful of retailers so far that have banned cash/coins, including Kroger, Meijer, Dollar Tree, and Wawa.

  1. With cash gone and all “money” in bank accounts, taxing will be super easy. Just a 2:00 am debit from every account in the country by the banks on orders from the federal government. Remember the “bail-in’s” a few years ago in Cyprus?? Various percentages taken from accounts depending on what type of account, How much was in the account, and whether it was foreign or domestic. Don’t rule out that happening here in the future to pay for the pandemic, national debt, whatever. The ice is getting thinner and thinner. . .
