Free $10 to cash in coins

Every once in awhile there comes a deal that actually MAKES YOU MONEY. This is one of them.

Now until Dec. 6, 2009, cash in $40 worth of coins at a green Coinstar machine, chose to get the money as a gift certificate or eCard, and you get a bonus $10 mailed to you. Suh-weet!

But getting the money requires you to follow these directions to a T:
  1. Before you dump your coins into the machine, press the "Cash in Coins" button and then the "Free Coin Counting" button.
  2. Select the retail brand of your choice.
  3. Pour your coins into the tray.
  4. Get your fully loaded card or eCert right from the machine.

To get the bonus $10, look for a claim form at the bottom of your Coinstar receipt. Complete the claim form in its entirety and postmark it by Jan. 6, 2010. Mail it to:

Coinstar Holiday 09 Bonus Offer
Department D, PO Box 6112
Douglas, AZ 85655-6112

Caveats: It takes six to eight weeks to get the check. Valid in the U.S. only and excludes Puerto Rico. Limit one per name, address, or household. Read all the fine print here.

For those of you wondering if the catch is all the gift card options suck, think again. You can redeem your coins for certs to, iTunes, CVS, Old Navy, Starbucks, and many more. Find a Coinstar machine near you.
