If you don't use the coupon (cash it in) good luck. I waited a week or so (never saw the sign that said MUST use same day) and went thru *** tryi g to cash it at the stater bros i used the machine at.! Had to call coinstar and fight with them to finally get an authorization code. Went back to stater bros. Stil wouldn't cash it. After waiting 20 mins.for mgr. He scolded me for not cashing it the same day, then FINALLY CASHED IT. NO MORE, NEVER AGAIN. EVER.................

I went to three different coinstars to find one that offered an amazon giftcard option. It makes no sense that some offer giftcard vouchers and others do not. After finding one that matched its online description I put in my change with the giftcard option. At the end...

When I was finishing up and waiting for the coinstar to print my ticket the machine said call manager and it went out of order. Well the manager came and was no help at all. They told me to come back in the morning.

For now on I will refer to this scam of a kiosk as the "One Tray Bandit." And no, I'm not referring to the machine's cash fee. So I've been saving up coins for the better part of a year and a half. I thought now was the time to cash them in. In the past I would roll...

I have heard many bad things about Coinstar and suggest you never use it again. I am sorry you were ripped off.

The money is not a fee. The site says they offer between 60-80% of the value which was what you were offered.

Read the fine print. Also, if you would have read reviews on other sites they all say the same thing about the offer value.
