Coinstar Coin Counting Added to United Check Cashing Stores
Coinstar, the leader in self-service coin counting, today announced its agreement with United Check Cashing to install Coinstar® kiosks in store locations in the Northeast. The Coinstar service will complement other financial services offered by United Check Cashing including check cashing, money transfers and bill payment.
“There’s a significant population that prefers to manage their money on a cash basis, including many Coinstar customers.” said Jim Gaherity, CEO of Coinstar. “It’s a great fit to add Coinstar coin counting to other cash-based services offered by United Check Cashing, and we’re delighted to add even more convenient kiosk locations for consumers in the Northeast.”
Coinstar’s turnkey service is available to United Check Cashing franchisees. They pay no capital costs or maintenance fees and the service requires no added labor. Coinstar kiosks are convenient and easy to use for consumers who have the option of turning their change into cash, a no-fee eGift card or donate to charity.
“Coinstar is the leader in self-service coin counting and a trusted consumer brand. We believe our customers will want the multiple services that Coinstar offers from the kiosk,” said Chris Fox, vice president of operations at United Financial Services Group. “We’re also happy that our franchisees can add the Coinstar service easily with no up-front costs or added labor.”
Coinstar kiosk installations are expected at United Check Cashing locations in Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania by the end of 2019. Kiosk locations can be found by visiting www.coinstar.com/findakiosk.
