I tried to put bills into the coinstar machine.  But, it wouldn't accept.
Are you supposed to press the button for "gift cards" or "buy gift cards?"  Or what's the procedure of how to get it to accept bills instead of coins?

Thanks OP. You said there is a $5 fee. But that should not be applicable for no fee GCs, correct?. You put in 50 bucks in coins, should get a $50 eGC voucher plus the bonus?

Although this ends today, some datapoints, FWIW, all based on use at Giant in No. Va. --

+  Redemption of COINS for fee-free Amazon gift e-card works, generates grocery coupon.
+  Using paper bills to buy AMZN e-card DOES NOT generate grocery coupon.
+  Coin machine accepts dollar coins, so if you're going to the bank for coins, suggest getting two $25 rolls of dollars, vs. 5 rolls of quarters.
+  I threw in a couple of nickles extra each time, so the total would be just over $50.

Thanks, OP!

  One of the initial screens asked "Cash or Coins," I couldn't figure out a way to supplement coins with bills.
