Coinstar goes after the gift-card resale market

By | April 16, 2014

Coinstar expands the market for vending machines

 

Craig Keefner‘s insight:

Nice writeup and flowchart showing Coinstar bidding $70  for $100 card, then handing off to Blackhawk who sells the $100 card on Cardpool.com for $90.  Coinstar and Blackhawk split the profit of $20 50-50
