Starting today, Coinstar is kicking off a nationwide promotion to help you turn loose change into cash, free coupons and big deals.  Right now you can pour in $5 or more into any participating Coinstar machine and select to get your cash back in a Borders e-certificate for no fee!!  PLUS you also get a coupon for $5 off your next $25 purchase at Borders!

We love Coinstar Counting Machines and always get our change turned into gift cards rather than cash (it avoids any fee).  If you haven’t tried this yet and have small kids they will love it!!!  The machine is fun all by itself, and then they see that saving up all the nickles and quarters they find can turn into something really fun.

I want to encourage you to turn this into a summer reading challenge.  Encourage your kids to gather up all their loose change then get your gift card to Borders and a coupon.  Now let them get stocked up on amazing books to enjoy all summer!

I bet between the cushions of your couch and the floorboards of your card you can easily find $5 in spare change…
