As the holiday shopping season draws near, a new survey from Coinstar, a leader in money services, found that Americans may have more money than they think stashed in piggy banks or junk drawers and weighing down purses or backpacks. Survey respondents estimate that they have a little more than $26 in spare change, but according to Coinstar's nationwide kiosk data, the average amount that customers convert to a no-fee eCertificate and/or gift card when they cash in their coins is $56 - more than double what survey respondents think they have hidden away at home. To learn more or to locate the nearest Coinstar kiosk, go to www.coinstar.com/holiday.
