This [WWW]green machine will let you exchange your jar of coins for goodies or raw Money!

You have the choice on how you want your money back. You can trade in your coins for gift cards or e-certificates without any fees. If you want to trade in your coins for cash, there is a 9.8% fee. Many people feel this is quite high, and decide to peruse the other fee-free options (see below). CoinStar currently [WWW]offers fee-free gift cards or e-certificates for Starbucks, Gap, Regal Cinemas, [WWW]iTunes, [WWW]Overstock.com, [WWW]Amazon.com, and more. You can also purchase pre-paid cellular, long-distance, and cash cards. At most locations you can choose to Donate your money to worthy causes as well.

And of course if you're a charitable person, or were collecting money for a special purpose, CoinStar lets you donate the money to charity.

CoinStar machines are nearly always somewhere close to the store's entrance. In Davis, you can find them in:

You can find other Coinstar locations through their [WWW]website's locater. There are quite a few nearby in Woodland and Sacramento. Not all Coinstar machines have the same features. Some do not have gift card options.

Coinstar is part of the same company as Redbox with Coinstar being a big green box of metal discs as opposed to a big red box of plastic discs.
