We all know those snack machines, coin machines, soda machines that allow dollar bills to be excepted. Here is a quick and easy way get all of those items for free and sometimes also making money at the same time. All you need is a dollar bill and a long strip of clear tape (you will want it to be the width of the dollar).
What you do is at the very end of the dollar bill is tape an end of the tape to it and then fold the tape in half (the long way). So it should sort of look like this, a long section of tape (around 6 to 8 inches long) folded so it is the smooth side and not the sticky side attached to the end of a dollar bill.
Now, stick the dollar end of the bill into the dollar slot. The dollar will go in with part of the tape (there should be enough tape left for you to be holding on to). Now pull the tape out along with the dollar bill.
The machine thinks that you paid a dollar so now make a selection. You should be able to get the candy or whatever along with the change. So, you end up with a candy and 50 cents in change for nothing!
This works the best on Lance Snack machines but feel free to try it on others too.
