Coin Super Star
Coinstar machines are fantastic. Normally located in grocery stores, they take your loose change and turn it into cash. When we were on our Lazy Money hunting quest, this service was fantastic because we had a piggy bank with hundreds of dollars in pennies! Rolling hundreds of coins is one thing, but 25,000? No way!! Alas, Coinstar does take a percentage, around 8%, off the top IF you elect to take cash. The better alternative is to have the Coinstar machine vend you a voucher for a place like Amazon. There is no fee taken when you do this.
