Big sale at the Apple store yesterday.
$11 off iPods and $101 off some Macs. Yawn.
Yesterday I took my 1 pound coffee can full of coins to the coinstar machine. I’ve spoken about the joy and wonder of this machine before. Except now it’s better.
You can dump in coins and get back cash for US8.5 cents on the dollar. Really, not a bad deal.
Or, you can get all of it back if you get a gift card. Starbucks, iTunes, Amazon. All the biggies are represented. You can’t mix and match tho.
Anyway, I’m there with my 1 pound Trader Joes coffee can. Full of coins. And some pocket lint. There might have been the odd screw there too. And a paper clip.
As the coins slid and whirred their way into the machines coffers, I was thinking I had about $80. Boy was I surprised. Here is the breakdown.
For a grand total of $149.74. Not to shabby eh? Got it as an Amazon gift card.
Took it to Amazon. Picked up an 8GB Nano. Only cost me about $39. Now THAT’s a sale.
