Follow-up: Coinstar covers man given oily pennies for last pay

Original thread

Updated article: Coinstar heard about the article, sent a vehicle to pick up the coins, and gave the aggrieved man a bit extra in the form of a $1000 check.

Sure, it’s easy PR for Coinstar, but it’s still nice to see a good thing come out of this.


Still hoping the former employer who did this gets what he deserves. I see the incident was mentioned repeatedly in the company’s negative Yelp reviews. Cannot believe they haven’t taken down the bit about pennies being accepted for payment on the company website. I guess he figures all publicity is good publicity, no matter how bad he looks on social media and in the news. :woman_shrugging:t4:


What, no 10% cut for themselves? Must be April Fool’s.
