Turn Loose Change and Gift Cards into Cash with Coinstar and Coinstar Exchange

Christmas time is coming very soon as the holiday season is now in full swing. There will be good tidings and great dinners, and all those fun presents. One issue that many of us have during this time is our difficulty in setting a budget and sticking to it. While most people create a holiday budget and try their best to stick to it (even if it means cutting back on entertainment expenses and eating out less), many often have money lying around that’s going to waste and end up overspending.

There are a number of ways you can try and hit that budget without digging too deep into your bank account. For example, if you’re like me, we don’t take advantage of all the unused gift cards, and/or spare change lying around in couch cushions, purses, cup holders, pockets, and junk drawers. This could help provide extra money to put toward all of your holiday shopping. One great way of getting extra cash for the holiday season is Coinstar®.

  1. My kids save their change all year long to take to coinstar for the holidays. That is how they save for holiday gift money for each other. I think it is a great way to teach them to save 🙂

  2. I knew all about the basics of Coin Star but not the gift card aspect to it. Wow! I will definitely consider that the next time I have a gift card that I can’t get much use out of.

  3. I had no idea that you could turn in gift cards! Wow this is lifechanging! I have a bucket of coins and a stack of gift cards with partial balances on them I need to trade for cash!

  4. I haven’t done one of the Coinstar machines in a long time and I really should. I love that they give out gift cards now. Cool to know!
