    Not a Coinstar rejects tray or tube find, but did score a free bag of ice at the "Twice the Ice" self serve station. A big bag of ice cost $2.50. I couldn't get the machine to take my dollar bill so trying to figure out what was the problem I started smashing buttons and out pops a bag of ice.
    I text the customer service number on the machine and explained and asked if I needed to pay. Got a text back saying no Merry Christmas, someone before me must have put credit on the machine.

    I hit the jackpot today!

    This is ONE CoinStar reject tray......


    Sorted and tallied.....


    Not one silver.
    Not one foreign.
    No glued together.

    Why would these reject?

    I've never used a CoinStar, but I have used other coin counting machines before. If you put too many coins in at once it starts dumping a lot coins into the reject bin that normally wouldn't.

    Whenever I start wondering why people are willing to lose 11% of their money to CoinStar surcharges, I remind myself that some of these same people ignore a TEN-DOLLAR pile of change accumulating RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM.

    I've never, nor will I ever, use any of those coin counters that charge a fee. However, I have noticed that certain machines do permit you to select 100% disbursement as a gift card to the establishment the counting machine is located. Some include Amazon gift cards in that promotion as well.

    I went thru today. It was jam packed with change. The collector was slacking. I see this particular coin star like this at least once a month. Shut down cause the bags are full.

    Within 3 days went to the same store, walked by the coin star machine found 1 silver quarter. the next time a Canadian quarter I kept the silver and gave the Canadian to a friend who visits Canada I'm holding about 6 -7 dollars, Canadian I will see him this week. Keep looking at the reject slot it holds money for you If You look.
