I recently wrote in my 10 Ways to Find Free Money post that you could exchange your coins at Coinstar kiosks for a grocery store gift card.
I was wrong.
I have not used the Coinstar machines in a while and I was unaware of the change to e-Certificates and at this time no grocery stores are listed in the available brands. Click here for a complete list or the current available e-certificates that you can receive in exchange for your coins without paying any fees.

Interesting! I never thought of that.

I like to put my coins directly in the self check-out machines to avoid Coinstar commission. I’ve put in as much as $15 at one time. Best done during the day when there are no lines!
