Turn your jar of coins into books

I have an interview with Burnt Bridge's Jason Stuart in the process of being formatted so look for that next week. Folks are traveling back home from Bouchercon and coming down from last night's Breaking Bad so here's a quick post sharing something I discovered recently.

If you take your coins to one of those Coinstar machines they will waive the fee/service charge if you get an eCertificate to participating restaurants and retailers. There are a lot of good choices and Amazon is one of them. So you can take that jar of coins, dump them in, the machine spits out a receipt, head to Amazon, punch in the redemption code, and boom, instant credit.

So if you have some coins lying around and don't know what to do with them here is a new option for you.
