I've had this quart paint can for pocket change on my dresser for years and it overflowed recently. I started putting coins in it, not for any particular savings reason, just to keep the damn things off the floor.
So yesterday I take it with me to the supermarket.
Figure I've got 20, maybe 30 bucks.
The machine tells me I can get bills for a 10% fee or choose a half dozen vendors gift cards, gratis. I select Amazon and dump the can.
Ching-ching clatter on and on for like 5 minutes 50 people in the checkout lines are staring at my back. Jokes on them, tho', 'cause now I have $68.02 in Amazon credit! $68.02!
