You may have seen
those Coinstar machines in your local supermarket. Basically, they
turn the coins you've collected in your change jar into bills (for a small fee, usually 8.9%). Recently, they've added
a few non-cash alternatives for you to choose from, like charitable donations and prepaid gift cards. Most recently,
iTunes gift cards have been thrown into the mix. Toss in your coins and out pops a gift card, all ready to go. Sounds
like a good "I-need-a-gift-right-now" solution.
Unfortunately, none of the machines in my area are currently offering iTunes cards. You can use the official Coinstar Locater to check on your neighborhood.
