Grenadier, a Boulder, CO-based creative agency dedicated to helping
entrepreneurs and challenger brands take a stand in the marketplace,
announced an exciting new partnership with Coinstar, an Outerwall Inc.
(Nasdaq: OUTR) brand. Grenadier is handling creative duties for the
launch of Coinstar™ Exchange, Coinstar’s new gift card exchange kiosk.
Media planning and buying is being handled by Grenadier’s partner
agency, Barkley, an independent shop based in Kansas City, MO.
Available at select grocery retailers in markets across the U.S., the bright yellow Coinstar Exchange kiosks allow consumers to transform unused or partially used gift cards into cash immediately and accept more than 150 gift cards from a variety of retailers. While campaign spending was not disclosed; the integrated campaign includes digital display, online video and radio, print, email, paid search, paid Facebook, mobile and in-store marketing. Creatively, the campaign centers on a series of botched gift card exchanges – an Outback Steakhouse gift card given to a vegan, a Red Lobster gift card given to someone with a shellfish allergy, a girlfriend dropping hints with a Tiffany & Co. gift card…on date number 2. And hidden camera videos in the campaign feature a guy trying to spend his unwanted gift cards like cash to pay for everyday items. The campaign theme/tagline is “Now The Thought Really Counts,” illustrating how Coinstar Exchange can help unlock the good intentions of gift givers trapped on unused gift cards.
more than twenty years, Coinstar has been helping consumers transform
what they have into what they want, so the introduction of Coinstar
Exchange is a natural extension of the brand,” said Tricia Montgomery,
Coinstar’s Vice President of Marketing & Consumer Experience.
“Billions of dollars are left unused on gift cards each year. Coinstar
Exchange has the potential to access a large untapped market. We
believe there is a strong value proposition in providing people with
cash for a gift card they may not want.”
