PF as a Coinstar Partner?

Postby aimeejane » Thu Nov 18, 2004 07:50 pm

Hi! Have you all seen those Coinstar machines in the supermarkets? If not, it's a free-standing machine where you can go & dump a bunch of change. It gives you a voucher, deducting a small fee, and you collect that amount in cash from the supermarket cashier.

Well, they have 4 non-profit partners, where, instead of getting the money back in cash, you just donate it straight to them. (This is how I always turn in our Trick or Treat for UNICEF proceeds.) I was putting the UNICEF change in tonight when it hit me, "Duh! Why don't we try to get the PF on the machines?"

Since we're a national cause, my thought is that it's best to approach coinstar about it, rather than the individual supermarkets.

What do you think??
