Get a little Christmas bonus from Coinstar

by Bay on November 17, 2008

You know those Coinstar machines that sit at the front of your grocery store? The ones that you never use because they charge you a little fee to count your coins when most banks now do this for free? Yeah, those!

Well, Coinstar is running a little incentive to make you cash your coins in for gift cards or e-certificates (to Amazon, for example). Not only are they going to waive the fee if you cash them in for certs instead of money, but if you pony up $40 in change, they will give you a $10 bonus!

Now, you don’t get the $10 right away, but here’s how it works. Before December 7th, get your $40 in change (if you need a bit more change you could always get some from your bank, hehe) – I actually had $40 in my coffee can, woohoo! Now, go to the Coinstar machine and opt for a gift card or e-cert (see the participating stores here). At the bottom of your receipt will be a claim form, to fill out and mail in. Coinstar will then send you a $10 gift card for the same store that you originally had picked. So for $40, you will get a total of $50. Not bad!

I just have to decide which store to pick…I think Amazon would actually be the most practical for me, but of course Old Navy is always good for clothes 😉
