Welcome to Sainsbury’s Help Centre

Is there a coinstar machine at my local store?

More information about coinstar machines can be found at www.coinstar.co.uk

Trading in your loose coins at Coinstar is easy. Just pour your coins into a machine and let us do the work.

  1. Choose one of our two convenient options: get cash, which has a 10.9% processing fee or charity which has a 7% fee. All fees may vary by location.
  2. Pour your coins into the tray, lift the handle, and guide your coins into the slot.
  3. Check the return tray for any rejected coins. When all your coins have been counted, you’ll receive a paper voucher for cash or if you chose charity, you’ll receive a receipt for your gift aid.
  4. If you chose the cash option, take your voucher to the cashier. Please be sure to redeem your cash voucher on the same day it was issued.

You can find a coinstar machine at some of our Sainsbury's stores. Find your nearest coinstar machine by using the 'Machine Locator' at http://www.coinstar.co.uk/findamachine

There is a 10.9% processing fee for cash transactions and a 7% fee for charity donations. All fees may vary by location.
