Coinstar, the coin-counter kiosk company, has added some new retailers and services to their lineup.

Now people's coins can be turned into movie tickets at AMC Theaters, Regal Entertainment Group, clothes at Forever 21 and makeup at Sephora.

The coin counters charge a 10.9 percent processing fee if people want cash back, but if they opt for gift cards instead, the fee is waived.

Coinstar gift certificates are available from dozens of retailers including Northface and Tiffany & Co.
