Coinstar Announces In-Store Digital Advertising Platform, adPlanet

Coinstar announced adPlanet, a new flexible digital advertising platform that sits atop Coinstar kiosks in grocery stores. The Coinstar adPlanet network delivers powerful reach, dynamic visuals, and tailored message capability by geography, demographics, brand behavior, and interests. Coinstar also announced that Neptune Retail Solutions (NRS), formerly News America Marketing, will exclusively sell adPlanet media to consumer packaged goods (CPG) advertisers in the grocery channel.

“Coinstar is excited to introduce the adPlanet network to regional and national brand advertisers,” said Michael Jack, vice president of product management at Coinstar. “adPlanet breaks through the clutter of a grocery store and showcases brands at the point of sale when consumers are shopping, which makes it an effective vehicle for creating lift and maximizing ad budgets.”
