Coinstar $40 in coins = $50 Toys R Us / Babies R Us Gift Card

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.)

  1. Thanks for sharing! My coin jar is almost full and I can take advantage of this.

  2. Thanks for the tip!
    Regarding the coinstar fee I just take my change to the bank, Wells Fargo, and exchange for bills or deposit it. No fees.

  3. I did this two years in a row. Both times the machine had an issue with providing the eGift card after I stood there slowly feeding coins into the machine for 20 min. The first year I was able to settle up with the store cashier. The second year the store contacted CoinStar and They promised to send it by mail but it would take a couple of weeks. I even received a call from Coinstar customer service two weeks later informing me that the credit was being sent. I never received it.

    This deal is far too much work for $10. Assuming you actually get it.
