Coinstar Centers Expanding Free Coin Counting Options for Music Lovers
Cash In For Free When You Choose an Amazon MP3-branded Gift Card
"Coinstar is constantly looking for offerings that make using coins for online or retail purchases easier for consumers," said Engle Saez, vice president of product management and consumer experience at Coinstar.
To kick off the new offering, Coinstar and Amazon are hosting a promotion to help consumers get even more for their coins. Between now and May 31, consumers get a bonus code for Amazon MP3 music downloads when they redeem Amazon MP3-branded gift cards from Coinstar - the bonus code will be worth $1 for every $5 in Amazon MP3-branded gift cards redeemed, up to $5 in bonus code value.

"We are excited to be working with Coinstar to offer our customers more purchasing options," said Kristin Smith, senior manager of digital music at Amazon. "We think Amazon MP3 customers will enjoy the ease at which they can turn loose change into songs for their music library."
The average American household has an estimated $90 in loose change, that's typically enough to fill your MP3 player with all of Amazon MP3's top 10 bestselling albums and songs.
