The machines don't accept notes, and the vendors don't like giving
change either.

However, I was able to use my (non chip/pin) credit card -- at first I
didn't see that the machine actually had two slots - one for chip/pin
cards, another for swipe cards.

I also managed to demagnetize my ticket, which made for an interesting
time transferring to the metro.
