Got a bunch of coins collecting in jars at home? Too lazy to sort/roll your own coins? Don’t want to pay the 8% service fee to a Coinstar? Now you can have the best of both worlds! Coinstar now offers to count your coins for FREE if you choose to get paid in the form of a gift card.
Gift card options include: Amazon, Borders, Starbucks, iTunes, JCPenney, Regal Cinemas, etc.
I just cashed in the jar pictured above in exchange for an Amazon gift card. Any guesses on how much was in there? The closest guess wins 3 free ounces of froyo at the San Gabriel Yogurt Land.
*note: Coinstar may have had this feature for a while, but I just found out about it recently so thought I’d share. =)
