MALVERN, Pa. -- July 25, 2013

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT) (“USAT”), a leader of wireless, cashless
payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve retailing
industries, Thanks Again, LLC and USAT customer, Canteen, have teamed up to
enable travelers using vending machines at the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW)
International Airport to participate in the DFW Customer Rewards Program.
Travelers participating in the DFW Customer Rewards Program are eligible to
earn frequent flyer miles or points for every qualifying purchase made at the
DFW Airport, including parking, retail, concessions and now, vending.

To launch the rewards initiative, the local Canteen branch in Dallas worked
with USAT to integrate the Thanks Again loyalty tracking with its vending
machines at DFW that utilize USAT’s ePort Connect® service, a one-stop shop
cashless payment and telemetry offering. ePort Connect was designed to make
adoption easy, reliable and scalable for the small-ticket market and enables
customers to participate in loyalty programs such as those offered by Thanks
Again as well as USAT’s loyalty and prepaid customer offering.

“Thanks Again is proud to partner with DFW and Canteen to offer passengers
more of their favorite airline miles or hotel points for credit or debit card
purchases made at vending machines throughout the airport,” said Marc Ellis,
chief executive officer of Thanks Again, LLC. “The Thanks Again Loyalty
Program makes it easy for consumers to grow their existing frequent flyer or
hotel point accounts when they choose to make everyday purchases at
participating locations. Vending machine purchases, along with shopping,
dining, parking, and pet boarding transactions offer passengers numerous
opportunities to earn rewards at DFW.”

“USAT made our participation in the DFW Airport Customer Rewards Program very
easy," said Marc Boman, president of Canteen's Central Division. “We view our
cashless payment platform as a valuable springboard for attracting new
business and for providing additional value to our clients and customers
through innovation. The Thanks Again program is a great example of an
innovative loyalty enhancement made possible with cashless-enabled locations.”

DFW International Airport’s Zenola Campbell, vice president of concessions,
noted, “We are very excited to be able to offer yet another way, through
self-serve vending machines, for passengers to get more out of their DFW
Airport experience. The vast majority of DFW’s restaurants, retail shops and
services throughout DFW are participating locations. All passengers have to do
is register at start earning miles immediately on their
DFW purchases.”
