Seriously: Convert change to Facebook Credits at Coinstar

You know those Coinstar machines that let you dump change into them for paper cash/gift cards/etc? Now you can dump your change…in the trash! Or, get Facebook credits.

A partnership with online payment service Rixty will let you turn your change-heavy pockets into Facebook Credits so you can buy stupid straw hats for your farmers. There’s even bonus Credits for dumping larger amounts of change. Real Life is turning into a game! I’m in despair!

They’re hoping to kick things off by offering 10 free FB Crecits to any coinstar users who choose cash instead, says Gamepro. This promotion runs from August 9th through September 7th. Right now there’s no end date to dump your change for Credits.
