    The machine will count the coins and then give you a receipt. You can either get the cash or use it to pay for your items (if any). You're usually charged 8.9 cents per dollar but some retailers or banks give you a discount. However, if you put the money on a gift card or e-certificate, it's free.

    • Coinstar takes 1% of the total. So, for every dollar, you get 90 cents. On 17 dollars you would get 15.30 and you take the receipt it spits out to a cashier and the cashier gives you the money in cash. You don't have to buy anything, the store already gets a percentage from Coinstar for allowing the machine in there.

    • You get less than face value. I think it is approximately 92%.

    • Coinstar takes 8.9% on cash. They also offer several merchant cards that you get 100% of your money.

    • The machine spits out a receipt for how much money you get, and you take it to a cashier to get the cash. But keep in mind they keep a percentage of it. If you have a bank, you may want to take it there and there won't be a fee.
