ATMs Gone Wild

Make cash with old electronics at the ecoATM.

Today there is an ATM on almost every corner. Cash be be had in a flash and you should beware or the ATM will eat your budget.

The line between ATM machines and fancy vending machine is becoming blurred. Today ATMs will dispense almost anything gold bars,ipods, jobs, and who knows what else to come.

One of new favorite ATMs is the ecoATM. You can trade in your old electronic equipment for cash. I’ve got a few old devices laying around the house, that’ll I plan on making a few bucks with.

If if they don’t accept your device, you can be ensured that it will be recycled and disposed of properly. There is also an option to donate the cash directly to a participating charity.


Sprinkles Cupcake ATM

24 hour cupcakes? Yes, a new ATM in Beverly Hills dispenses yummy Sprinkles Cupcakes. Need a classic red velvet cupcake at 3 in the morning? Yep, you’ll be able to get one pending it’s not sold out. I know I’ll be trying it out next time I’m in the BH.


What is the newest ATM-like machine you’ve seen?
