Trade Your Coins in for an Amazon Gift Card

Good to know! I use coin star all the time and I hate paying that fee, but I dislike rolling coins more. Nothing’s better than more books!

LOOSE CHANGE = AMAZON GIFT CARD

I finally filled up a bucket of coins (without having to dip into the savings for some unexpected bill).

I didn’t feel like putting them in coin rolls. The pile was intimidating, and I’d rather put my time into writing.

It turns out you can turn your coins into an Amazon gift card.

With no fee!

For years, I had avoided using Coin Star because I had heard that it charges you a fee.

But it only charges you a fee if you want to trade your coins in for dollars.

I went into my local grocery store with my bucket of change and used Coin Star for the first time.

Before I left to wander the aisles of the grocery store, I had an unexpected request from a beta reader to read my first draft of Avoiding The Tilt. I was thrilled. Let’s hope he doesn’t tear it to pieces. I’m interested in seeing a man’s perspective on this story.

Finding beta readers has proven harder than I thought. If you are interested, contact me at knowles.elle@gmail.com.

Later this afternoon, after I made H a quick sandwich and insisted I did not want to go ride bikes or go see a movie, I fell asleep on the sofa. I dreamed I asked H if he wanted me to cook something for dinner. He replied, “No. Let’s have something normal like a banana.”

That didn’t happen. We had taco bread and cupcakes from Publix. I would have been happy with that banana.
