Coinstar Lets You Use Change To Buy Farmwars, Mafiaville Junk

Coinstar, which has more than 60,000 change-converting kiosks around the world, is offering an alternative to cash and gift cards by serving up Facebook Credits to spend on games and applications on the social networking site.

To get customers in a Facebook Credit-using mood, Coinstar is offering 10 free credits to those who opt for cash instead. The free credit promotion stars today and runs through Sept. 7.

The promotion also offers a bonus to those who choose to convert their change into Facebook funny money: After every 10th exchange customers will be told to buy a life. Just kidding.
