If you have a jar of change, head to your nearest Coinstar machine and trade your cash for gift cards to nine participating grocery stores with no fee. Gift cards are available for the following supermarkets: Albertsons, Shaw’s, ACME, Jewel-Osco, Lucky, Farm Fresh, Shop N Save, Hornbacher’s, and Shoppers.
If you don’t have any of the supermarkets listed in your area, you can trade your coins (with no fee) for gift cards to retailers such as Old Navy, CVS, Gap, Banana Republic, JCPenney, Lowes, iTunes and a list of other online and brick-and-mortar retailers.
Coinstar normally charges a hefty fee to cash in your spare change — 9.8 cents per dollar in the US and 11.9 cents per dollar in Canada — so why not trade it for a gift card to a store you’re going to spend your money at anyway?
