Airport Kiosks Let You Exchange Foreign Currency for iTunes Credits

...

Heads up, travelers. If you're headed back to the US and have a bunch of foreign coins jangling around in your pocket, don't just bunch of random crap at the airport or keep that foreign currency as a souvenir. Exchange it for something you'll actually use: iTunes or Google Play credits.

As CNET reports, kiosks are popping up in airports around the world that let you exchange leftover currency for things like Google Play, iTunes, and Skype gift cards.

Look for the yellow TravelersBox kiosks at airports in Singapore, Japan, Canada, Italy, Philippines, Georgia, Israel, and Turkey. If you're not into getting a gift card, you can instead opt to deposit the foreign money right into your PayPal account or donate it.

"Don't let your money go to waste, and don't leave it sitting in a jar back home," TravelersBox says on its website. "Turn it into cash that you can actually use and choose from our wide range of gift cards or deposit to your e-wallet."

TravelersBox charges a 7 percent fee, but says it will "always be cheaper than the local money exchanges at the airport." Once you complete your deposit at the kiosk, you'll get an email confirmation with instructions for redeeming your cash. The money should be available to you within 48 hours.
