The supermarket chain may not own, empty or maintain the machine but it appears operator=* is already being used for this case. Should we continue and add it to additional tags?

I would characterize them completely differently, nothing is sold, and you don’t get a discount coupon but rather a receipt to get back your deposit. The term vending machine is misrepresenting these machines and should not be used.
