Try eBay perhaps? Could find a cheaper 2nd hand one on there.

Maybe they could make a movie about it a la ‘Super Size Me’ (the guy who ate Macca’s for a month, and got sick) Insidentaly, if you eat Macca’s once or twice every couple of months as a treat, like normal people, it’s quite harmless.
They could make a movie about the guy who drank 8 glasses of Pepsi a day, lost his teeth and didn’t win an iPod. Or maybe he did. A happy ending is always good.

I have read through the terms and conditions in detail. there are no hidden catches, it seems fairly simple. SMS to enter and you could win.  I saw an interview in one of the Papers and basically it says Pepsi have bought the iPods to give away as there major promo for the year. The sms cost is like any competition entry. It’s the phone companies that make the coin. I think it’s a cool comp !

i know someone that works at Pepsi and they told me the best time to enter is between 7 - 9 am on the weekends as most people are asleep. think about it - if you get home at 5am you are definitley out cold by 8am.  GOOD LUCK

Pepsi Max is different to Diet Pepsi. The actual sweeteners are different. That’s why Max tastes better - more like real cola. The UK also have Pepsi Max.  I buy it so did me some research

the draw is actually till the 11th of july.. but ALL enteries received go into the draw to win one of 10 ‘extra’ ipods..

Posted by ipodhopeful on June 16, 2004 at 1:53 AM (CDT)


Pepsi Max uses a different sweetener but it also has more caffinee, hence the ‘max.’

I won an iPod too on this promotion on the 9th of June :D for the 11pm-12am draw! I am sooo freakin happy!

Posted by Romen on June 18, 2004 at 11:33 PM (CDT)


So many people think Pepsi Max has more caffine. It has zero sugar and MAX taste according to the label.
And if you reply to the confimation SMS with “Y” you are told the winner for each hour you enter.
