I finally decided to clean out the drawer in my desk that I’d been dumping the contents of my pockets into every days for the better part of 3 years. Mass had built up in the drawer to the point that I was concerned about it’s structural integrity. Not to mention the fact that there were some many receipts pill ed up in the draw that I could close it anymore. So I decided to draw out one the Coinstar machine’s at the local super market (Star Market). I’ve known about these machines for awhile but always turned my nose up at the 8% cut they extract. Then I found out you can could get the full face value of your cold hard cash back as an Amazon gift certificate.
Amt Inserted: $126.70
Plus some EU and what must be Japanese money that the machine graciously returned to me.
