The standard fee to cash in coins at a Coinstar kiosk is 9.8%, which is too high in my opinion and I’d never pay that much. However, if you redeem for one of their gift certificates there is no fee, and there are often promotions that make it even better. Right now, at select grocery stores you can get $50 in Toys R Us gift cards for $40 in coins. Valid only at Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Dominick’s, Randalls, and Tom Thumb stores. Offer ends 12/15/13.
eGift cards can be used both in-store and online, and can be also be used at Babies R Us. (Don’t forget free 2-day shipping from Shoprunner too if you order online.)
