Here's a great way to have some extra spending money this Christmas! I saw this on Amy's blog (which is always full of great ideas!) and wanted to share it with all of you!
David and I each have a jar in our closets for putting loose coins. Each of our jars was only half full, but I decided to count it anyway - we came up with just a little over $30 in coins. Saturday afternoon while the girls were napping, I went to a nearby grocery store and cashed these in.
Here is the deal:
* Take at least $30 in coins to a Coinstar machine.
* Trade them in for an Amazon gift certificate and use the machine for free (no fees).
* Receive a bonus $10 Amazon gift certificate by mail-in-rebate for FREE.
Read more about the offer on Coinstar's website. Find a Coinstar machine near you that offers e-certificates. Enter your zip code and then click on "Products" under each machine listed for ones that offer electronic certificates. A machine that offers cash only will not work in this promotion.
Including driving, this took about 30 minutes and I came home with a certificate for over $30 plus the rebate certificate! We always do some shopping on Amazon because of the book and movie lovers! You can combine that with Amazon free shipping and come out with some great deals.
It is so thrilling to get a good deal! Thanks, Amy for sharing!
