Get a Coinstar sherpa bag to redeem loose coins

Do you have a lot of loose coin change just hanging around? I personally have a small hat box filled with loose chance I've been collecting. Did you know that there’s up to $10 billion worth of coins out of circulation in the United States? That's a lot of money that's just sitting there.

Recently I was contacted by Coinstar. They offered to send me one of their coin sherpa bags to encourage me to dust off the piggy banks and put my coins money to work! As soon as my coin sherpa bag arrived, I transferred all my loose coins from the box and made my way to the nearest Coinstar kiosk, which happened to be in my PathMark supermarket.

Once in the supermarket, the Coinstar kiosk was easy to find. The system to redeem my coins was pretty straight forward and simple.

I had the option of receiving either a cash voucher, gift card/ecertificate to many major stores or to donate to charity. Since I download a lot of apps and TV shows for my son, I chose to receive a itunes ecertificate.

My son "helped" me put the coins in the "coin basket" so they can be sorted and counted.

All my coins were quickly tallied and the screen showed me how much my total would be.

When I was finished depositing my coins, I confirmed how I wanted them redeemed and received a receipt with my code. I finally made use of my loose coin change!
