Earn Extra Holiday Cash with Coinstar!

This post brought to you by a partnership with Coinstar. All opinions are my own.


The holidays are quickly approaching and I’m in full Christmas Shopping mode. Making a budget, checking sales, and trying to get all the items on my kids wish lists, but I always tend to overspend this time of year. No matter how many times I make a budget, I always go over it. This seems to be a common problem among parents, so I know I’m not alone in this. I’m always looking for extra ways to make money whether it’s selling unwanted things or using Coinstar® kiosks to get extra cash.


I also have stashes of coins all over the house – the bottom of my purse, the laundry room, my bedroom, and the kitchen. I usually save them up all year and then cash them in towards the end of the year and use them for Holiday shopping. If you have coins lying around, you can turn them into cash at a green Coinstar kiosk and spend the cash for the things you really want like gifts, a trip to the spa, holiday decor, groceries, and so much more. You can even trade in your coins for no fee eGift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Toys “R” Us and so many more retailers or you can donate to charity.

I love getting gift cards, but sometimes you’re given one that just doesn’t work for you. Now you don’t have to let it sit around collecting dust. Take your unwanted gift cards to a yellow Coinstar™ Exchange kiosk and get instant cash..


Here’s how it works:

  1. Use the Coinstar locator to find a kiosk near you. They’re located in grocery stores all over the country
  2. Take your unwanted coins to the green Coinstar kiosk or unwanted gift cards to the yellow Coinstar kiosk and exchange them for cash, right then and there.
  3. Spend it on the things you really want. Simple and easy.

So this holiday season turn your coins into cash and turn in those unwanted gift cards and get some instant cash to buy the things you really want. What will you spend the extra cash on?

I always worry that it is not counting the change properly, but if it weren't I think it would have made the news by now.
