WIN A FABULOUS PRIZE
READ ON FOR DETAILS
I wasn’t sure what to do with all these coins… I knew I wanted to get something cool with the money (an iPod, a TV, a trip to the moon). Cashing the money was another thing…
This is where Coinstar comes in.
The greedy bastards charge an 8.9% coin counting fee, but you can get, for no fee, an Amazon Gift Card. So I drove to the closest Albertson’s, and spent what were perhaps the most soothing 15 minutes I’ve had in a long time inserting quarters into a machine.
Are you wondering how much money I got? Take a guess. Below are photos of my Superman piggy bank and Moi’s lose change box, pictured next to a penny to convey a sense of proportion. Write in the comments how much money you think I cashed. Whoever is closest to the actual figure will win a cool prize. I’m serious. I don’t know what it will be yet, it depends on who wins. But it will be cool. And no… it won’t be a trip to the moon. Those are still too expensive.
Guess how much money I cashed in a Coinstar machine for an Amazon gift card. The best guess (and it has to be within $5.00 USD) wins a prize! (I promise). Read more to see the pictures! Contest ends whenever I say so.
