Change counting firm Coinstar will accept coins for iTunes gift cards according to a report from CNNMoney. The coin-counting machine company now lets customers exchange spare change for an iTunes gift card at Coinstar machines, the company said.
“The ‘Coin to Card’ program is currently available on 5,000 Coinstar machines in the U.S., the company said. Unlike standard coins-to-cash transactions, which have a fee, customers can forgo the standard 8.9 percent processing fee to get credit for digital downloads,” CNNMoney reports. “Coinstar (Research) offers iTunes gift cards for as little as $5 dollars in change, a denomination which has previously been unavailable through Apple… There is currently an estimated $10.5 billion of spare change sitting idle in American households, according to Coinstar.”
