: Every one I see only say they accept $1 $5 and sometimes $10, but never $2.

$2 bills are still legal currency after all.

: The $2 bill is very uncommon.

The vending machine companies don't think that their extra costs involved to safely identify them (to prevent accepting counterfeits), exceed the benefits to the company of dealing with them.

: Vending machines don't accept pennies either even though they are legal currency.

It costs money for the software to accept each bill. No one uses $2 bills so the vending machines companies aren't worried about losing an extremely occasional sale because the person only has a $2 bill. The cost of the software doesn't justify it.

: It's because the $2 bill is not widely used, and every additional type of currency that the bill validator has to recognize drives up the cost.

And I've got to correct the answer that said that $2 bills aren't printed any more. While they're not continuously printed like other denominations (because of the lower demand), they run off 250 million or so about every five years. They just started the latest run in February of this year.
