We were using a Coinstar machine on 8/05/2018. The machine was located in a Walmart, in Danvers Ma. The banner on the machine and screen clearly stated we could redeem coins for a gift card for no fee. We played with the screen for several minuets without finding that...

Many times I bring heavy coins to Coinstar and the machine is not working, closed or out of order I went to two different places today and three machines total were not taking coins. It was a total waste of time.

00 in coins to my local coinstar which i had used once before with no issues. I wanted a voucher for Amazon so I wouldn't have to pay the unnecessary fee, but when everything went through, the machine wanted to give me one for Old Navy instead. I do not shop there, so...

The machine gave the wrong gift card, people in the store were useless, but were still better than the customer service "representatives" at coinstar itself. They basically said I was screwed and stuck with a *** gift card for a restaurant I hate even though I had...

Coinstar - Different coupon issued than what i chose

Details
I chose a coupon for Lowe's and after counting up almost $500 I was given a coupon for toys r us. They wouldn't correct it said their machine was fine and too bad. I had to buy toys and bicycles to spend the coupon and I don't have kids. I never selected toy store. Be careful and don't put more than your willing to lose per transaction. They are unreliable. I complained to CA. Weights and measures but they don't watch this thing.

Coinstar no longer owns these machines. They were sold to another company and that company shut them down while they rewrote the software to reflect the changes.

If there is a printer issue, call coinstar, they will dial into the machine and search the transaction database and give you the gift code.

As you feed the coins into the machine, if the hopper gets too full a gate will close so as to not over fill the hopper. A message will come up that says, "my you have a lot of coins, please wait for us to catch up.

As the level lowers in the hopper to where it can hold more coins the gate will open up and allow more coins into the hopper, thats the rush of coins you hear.

To prevent that from happening, feed your coins slower into the machine as to not over fill it to where the gate closes. The machine will process 600 coins per min while processing.
