Grocery chain Giant Food announced that it will now offer customers using the Coinstar coin-counting kiosks the option to place the full value of their coins onto a no-fee Giant Food gift card.
The gift cards are activated upon completion of the Coinstar transaction and available for use that same day, according to the grocer. Customers also have the option to select a gift card from other national in-store and online retailers.
"Every day at Giant, we strive to offer our customers the highest levels of quality, value and service, and offering convenience is an important factor in that equation," Giant Food President Anthony Hucker said. "Coinstar kiosks are a popular destination in our neighborhood stores, and we're very excited about the new option for customers to convert change into fee-free gift cards."
