Hello there fellow broke girls!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means everyone is gearing up for SPENDING season. Everyone has that jar, tub, or huge water dispenser bottle FILLED with what they think is useless change. I’m here to tell you, IT’S NOT SO USELESS WHEN YOU’RE BROKE!
Instead of spending hours rolling coins into little paper tubes to bring to the bank, Coinstar Kiosks have been developed and improved to transform your “useless change” into cash or gift cards for your favorite places!
Although there is a service fee applied to all cash exchanges, which varies upon location, Get Cash option of the kiosk is well worth the use if you’ve got a huge container filled with coins.
Another great option Coinstar offers besides the quick cash, is to exchange the coins into gift cards! This exchange requires NO service fee, and you’re guaranteed to make someone on your list very happy with the variety of stores you can get gift cards for!
Coinstar offers gift cards to many name brand places like Aeropostle, Bass Pro Shops, Cold Stone Creamery, Forever 21, Game Stop, iTunes, Nike, and more! The entire list is on the left side of the screen, just incase you’re curious about the “and more” 🙂
The Kiosk Finder will help you locate the closest kiosk to your current location. Simply type in your zip code at the top of the screen and the interactive map will show you locations within a five mile radius.
Most locations will be inside grocery stores and/or convenient stores like Wal-Mart and Winn Dixie
This semester has been hard financially for all of us, between tuition, books, weekly grocery trips and gas. But, this is a sure fire way that money will ALWAYS be right at your finger tips 🙂
