First Timers: $5 Amazon promotional credit when you convert $30+ in Coins for an Amazon Gift Card at Coinstar

This is the closest thing to free money one can get these days! IF you put $30+ in coins at a participating Coinstar kiosk (found inside grocery stores and such, those green things) AND you get your converted money in an Amazon Gift Card (you get a gift card code on the printed receipt, it won’t print a plastic gift card) you will automatically receive a $5 Amazon promotional credit (for items sold and shipped by Amazon herself only) to be used until 12/31/2020.

IMPORTANT: this promotion is only available to first timers. The terms and conditions state:

“Offer limited to the first time a customer gets an Amazon.com Gift Card claim code from a physical location”

The promotion runs until 11/30/20. All the details at the Terms and Conditions page.

If you are not familiar, Coinstar charges a service fee IF you convert your coins into cash. However, if you convert your coins into gift cards, there’s no service fee (because presumably they get a commission/service-fee from the stores offering the gift cards).

I have done these type of Coinstar promotions a few times before without issue. The only thing that worries me this time is the “first time” language. But if you typically convert your coins to Amazon gift cards anyway, you have nothing to lose by doing this.

PS: if you like making noise, this is fun, because the Coinstar machine makes a lot of noise while counting the coins ^_^
