Etsy store and Ebay transactions, and my kids each have a student PayPal card that I can add funds too when they're out and about and need a few extra dollars and don't want to carry cash (or just need an extra shirt as far as my daughter is concerned!)
It is so easy to use. All you have to do is follow what it says on the screen. It's a touch screen so even a kid can do it (and my son has used one of these kiosks in the past). I don't really like that there is a fee for processing the change from the kiosk to the PayPal account, but I guess nothing is free. I chose the 'Add coins to PayPal account' and entered the email address of that account, my daughter's in this case, and waited for the next prompt, which was to add my change.
It kept adding up and and up. I honestly thought the money I got from my husbands bucket from on top of his dresser, out of the bottom of my purse and in the van, would add up to about $6 but I ended up with over $12 after the coin conversion was done. Sure does add up fast, and it was so convenient!Coinstar kiosk at Brookshire's and she thought it was very cool. Of course, she told me I could add some bills to it too, and while I could have if I wanted to, I didn't want to. This is good for her, to have money on her PayPal card because she can buy things online with it.
This is what the receipt looks like and it has all the totals on the bottom of it, including the minimal charge it did take off for the service fee. I did think that it was cool how it told how many of each coin there was. I don't know why exactly, but I just thought it was cool.
I didn't pick up a lot of things at the store today as my main objective was to convert coins into cash, but let me tell you, I can do some damage in this store. The fact that they know me by name or as 'the coupon lady' should be enough to let know that I'm in here a lot!
You can get more information about the Coinstar Kiosks in your area by visiting the Coinstar Facebook page or the Coinstar Twitter page. There is also a PayPal Facebook page and a PayPal Twitter page too if you want to check them out.
I made a Google+ photo album of my busy day too if you want to check it out. There is a lot of pictures on there from Brookshire's and the Coinstar PayPal kiosk and all the running around we did, including going to the DMV. Check that out here.
