Saving change is an age old way of making a little nest egg. Day to day you most likely won’t notice the small amount of coins you put into an old juice jug or food storage container. It’s amazing how fast it adds up.
But how do you make the most of your time and still get your money?
Most banks don’t even have coin counting machines any more and you have to roll all the coins up to deposit, turn in, or spend them. Then there are coin counting machines in stores, but in order to “cash in” your coins there’s a fee of almost 12%.
However, did you know that you can convert your coins into eGift Cards through Coinstar machines with NO FEE?
Yes, that’s correct. No fee when you convert your change for use on some of your favorite websites, that you shop anyway. (pssst: Amazon is included – see more below)
It’s a great way to save money for holiday gifts or treating yourself.
With popular holiday shopping retailers as part of the program, those coins will help you give a little more without feeling it in your bank account.
The list of no fee eGift Cards also includes restaurants!
So what can you convert your coins to?
NOTE: Not all eGift Cards are available at all locations. GO HERE to find the eGift Card you want and search for the Coinstar location near you that has it as an option.
Now that you know, are you going to start saving change?
