Coinstar will give you a free bag (A Coin Sherpa) to collect your coins in for your next trip to your local Coinstar machine.
From now until August 26th, when you take your spare change (remember to raid your husband's work pant's pockets every day when he gets home) to a Coinstar machine like the ones at my local Tom Thumb, you'll get a bonus! Details are here. Use the code COINBAG when you turn in your coins for an eCertificate to retailers like Starbucks, iTunes, Lowe's, and the like, and you'll also get a FREE CoinStar bag by mail when you then type in the promo code found on the bottom of your Coinstar receipt on this fulfillment page here.
Remember, when you choose to turn your change into an eCertificate to a retailer (instead of into Cash) they don't charge the typical counting fee.
I did it this morning, and turned my jar full of pennies into a $17.48 Starbucks gift card. Plus, now I'll have a heavy-duty bag for transporting my change to the CoinStar machine next time. And we all know I'll be saving for Quinn's art school classes with the next batch of change!
