Coinstar iTunes gift cards
Coinstar today announced that it is allowing consumers to exchange coins for iTunes gift cards or for Virgin Digital eCertificates as part of its new Coin to Card program. Consumers who visit a Coinstar Center can now pay no counting fee to exchange their change for digital downloads. The company added that it still charges a processing fee for standard "Coins to Cash" transactions, however. In addition to offering numerous coin-related facts, Coinstar estimates that over 10 billion iTunes tracks could be purchased using gift cards exchanged for all of the idle spare change in the U.S.
