coinstarInsiders, we wanted to tell you about a limited-time offer currently available from Redbox’s parent company, Coinstar. Between now and December 6, 2009, when you change $40 at a Coinstar machine for a certificate from one of Coinstar’s retail partners, the kiosk company will send you an additional $10 bonus gift card by mail. Coinstar’s partners include such major retailers as Amazon.com, Borders and iTunes, so chances are you’ll find a company on their partner list that you wouldn’t mind having some credit from this holiday season.

Remember, neither Michael nor myself are in any way associated with Coinstar and Redbox—we just know that our readers, like us, are always on the lookout for a good deal. Cheers!

    Cool! I might actually try out Coinstar for this deal. I have one of those automatic coin counter jars that I know I now have around $45 in coins so I’ll make the $40 mark to get the extra $10…from Amazon! Wish Coinstar could initiate a gift card for Redbox activated by utilizing your charge or debit card–as Michael once suggested.

    Be careful with this one. Last year Coinstar offered a similar deal. The $40 is after the service charge. It may be different this year.

      I don’t believe there is a service charge when you convert coins to certificates and not cash. I got an Amazon certificate a few months ago and there was no service charge – I assume Amazon pays that or Coinstar and Amazon have some other agreement.

      I know there is a (IMHO) hefty charge to convert coins to cash at that coinstar machine.
