Yes this is true!
Coinstar is now FREE without a fee.
There is a catch-
You have to choose to place your change on a new card/eCertificate option that is available with participating retail stores.
Coinstar.com lists what stores are participating in this option:
Regal Entertainment Group
So now you coffee, book reading, online shopping, and music down-loaders can go to any Coinstar machine and choose to put you change towards a card or eCertificate.
Wow! I have so much change, now I can put it on a Borders card or Starbucks card. I love this option. Why would I pay to get my money counted?
Well, now I prefer to get my money counted and placed on a card or eCertificate for FREE.
