Coinstar and metal detecting pennies
Took my detecting pennies to the Coinstar on Monday. I've been waiting for the gift card option. Took Applebee's. Started running them through and then run the rejected ones through a couple of times. $36.41 and then it stopped and gave me the message to see the supervisor. After that message it prints out a cash receipt with a charge of $4.40. The supervisor opens the machine and takes out 10 or so dented coins. Says to call Coinstar about the gift card. Coinstar says when that happens it voids the gift card. Will issue a gift card for $4.40 on Amazon. Yesterday my wife is buying on Amazon so I tell her to enter the code they sent. She has a $47 order. Enter code expecting to see a $43 balance. It pays it all.
BTW it pays to dig pennies too. 3,641.
