Tesco, United Kingdom's Top Supermarket Chain, Rolls Out Coinstar Coin Counting.

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Coinstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSTR) today announced that its subsidiary Coinstar Limited expects to roll out its innovative Coins to Cash[TM] service to approximately 300 large Tesco stores. Coinstar will now have a presence in the United Kingdom's top four supermarket chains (Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda and Morrisons).

The self-service Coinstar[R] machines count loose, unsorted change for a nominal fee and issue a voucher that can be spent in the store or exchanged for cash. The service has been available in the United Kingdom since 2001.

"We are delighted to be launching the Coinstar service in Tesco stores, the U.K.'s largest supermarket chain," said Alex Camara, senior vice president and general manager of worldwide coin for Coinstar, Inc. "These installations will expand our national footprint in the U.K. and will bring our total installations to more than 1,000."

The roll-out started in late 2006 and will continue in 2007 and will encompass stores throughout Britain.

"The Coinstar machines will make for an even more convenient shopping experience. I'm sure it will be especially useful for those who are short on time or do not want the challenge of having loose change. We look forward to the machines being introduced into our stores," said Mark Mason, product development manager for Tesco.
