  1. I just went to web site. Deleted the login in part and went through the login in. Its working now.
  2. Mine hasn't worked yesterday or today.
  3. I weigh mine. 100 mints is around 1,404 mints. I don't care if its 1 or 2 mints off, close enough for me. I have a chart I made that goes from 1 to 100 and has the weight. When I get home I just dump left over mints in and weight and get it close enough.
  4. Sheridan has contacted me to see if I would be interested in presenting a big check for candy for a cause with media coverage. The details are still being worked out. We will see what happens.
  5. I replace a lot of locations and I also have locations that have been there for over 4 years. Seems like they stay for a long time or not very long at all.
  6. I think he has given up on his idea. This is over a year ago.
  7. Sounds like you are doing mints, 3 for $1.00. I weigh mine. I set my scale to grams and weighed mine and made a chart, 1 to 100. I weigh to fill and weigh when I pick them up to see whats left. Grams break it down to smaller increments than ounces.
  8. Anybody here ever used Broadside Communications. I tried them back in October. They charge $125.00 per location. I talked to them and found out you are buying leads, not locations. But assured me they were leads that needed vending service. They are just leads though. He said if it was in a bad part of town they would replace it. I decided to give it a try, $125 for a good location would be worth it. I ordered 2 locations. They do a contract but said you can cancel anytime with 30 day notice. In November they sent me two leads. First one was a large nice apartment complex. I wasn't real excited but I went to the appointment. The manager was nice and she wasn't happy with the service she was getting but she couldn't make and decisions. The owners were an out of town investment company and they had to make decisions. She would send them my flyer and let me know. That was the end of that. Second location was an extended stay location in a rough part of Dallas. When I went there I had to go through a road block. The Wells Fargo bank on the corner had just got robbed. I got to location and they had a micro-mart in the lobby. Way out of my league. Told him about it being in a rough area. Never heard back anything, got charged $250.00. November 8th I canceled my contract with them. Haven't heard anything till yesterday. Noticed they charged me $125.00. No charges in December. Searched through all my emails, junk mail, deleted emails. Nothing. I hate scams..........
  9. I lose about 10 to 15 a year. Funny, most are the plastic ones. Only had a couple of cardboard ones stolen or lost.
  10. I filed a fraud claim with my bank. They already put the money back in my account. Lets see where it goes from there.
  11. I bought several Coinco 9302-GX at an auction. They are new but some of them say Token on them. What is the difference? Do I need to change something to take change?

  14. Well I asked for it but I stopped it. Can't figure out why they didn't charge me in December and for one in January when I never received a lead. I sent an email and asked for refund. We will see what happens.
  15. I know of one in my area that he wants $100 for it. I can't decide either if its worth it.
  16. I just saw this on the news. They are building one here where I live in Frisco Texas. Think I need to get a few.........lol https://www.carvana.com/vendingmachine?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google-vending-machine&utm_content=car-vending-machine&utm_term=%2Bcar %2Bvending %2Bmachine&gclid=Cj0KEQiAhZPDBRCz642XqYOCpb8BEiQANUcwT-M4_F7EuM6n6exDyxGQRcRYPw-XpsR4X4yAHc2k3pYaApiy8P8HAQ
  17. There was somebody on here a couple of years back that was buying them by the pallet somewhere. I asked about it but I can't find the information. He had a big mint box route, over 1,000 locations.
  18. I placed one at a full service car wash early this summer. I was having to service it twice a week with over $100 in it each time. I was doing cans at $1.00 and giving 20% comm. I am looking to get more. The bad, now that it is cooling down sales have gone way down, maybe 50 or 60 a week.
  19. Don't feel bad. I had a location and when I came back to switch it out the guy there told me the owner came in and threw it in the trash.
  20. I guess I had better start looking. I have a small hospital. I'm sure they will be bringing it up.
  21. I have a couple that I have to run twice a week. Usually $20 to $30 each trip. Its all about locations. Those are few and far between, wish I had more like that. When I was using a locator I would figure I would have to pick up about 3 or 4 out of 10 locations. The manager or somebody would say yes and the owner would come in and say it has to go.
  22. Do you use credit card readers with your vendsoft? They never did get mine to work. If they would have I might have stayed with them.
  23. I did bulk for about 4 years before selling my route. Now i'm into soda and snack machines.
  24. I'm in North Dallas. What kind of vending are you doing, bulk or soda?
  25. I've got some that have been on location for over 2 years. Thats when i started the mint boxes.
