I had over 200 dollars of rolled coins that i unrolled and put into machine. It told me i only put in 168 dollars and received 130 plus a few dollars. Coinstar is a total rip off. I am elderly and need every penny to live. I complained to company and never heard a word back. That shows they don't care.

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.

Coinstar Vending Machine Review

Machine never works and kept my gift card and then I left a message with the store I was at and then contacted coin star and someone else claimed my gift card! Coin star claims they cannot reimburse me. Don't use it!! I asked for manager and was told they would have to call me back.

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

I received a Lowe's Gift Card from Coinstar in October. Yes, it faded.

I did not notice that the receipt clearly states "Certificate May Fad Record Code" I cashed in some more coins and made a copy of the receipt with my printer when I got home. For many people, it might be best to receive a cash voucher and use it the same day you get it. I use the Coinstar at my supermarket. I can use the voucher toward groceries (less the Coinstar fee of 9%) For my faded receipt for $140, I could not even see traces of the Gift Card # or PIN #.

I used a hair dryer on the back of the thermal paper. The front turned an ashy black and the print reappeared in light grey.

Was "shorted" $10+ on the machine at New Port Richey Walmart. This is NOT inclusive of the Fee, which is fine. According to Walmart Customer service, I have no recourse. Help?!?!?
