Hmmmm about a buck fifty for a Pepsi 32 oz and about 1 in 3 wins.

I’d rather drink water and spend the money I was gonna buy a Pepsi with to buy songs directly from iTunes. Any thoughts?

Almost forgot, you get your thirst quenched, get an iTune and no disappointment from NOT winning with Pepsi.

Meh, I think Coke sucks.  Pepsi’s a lot better in my opinion, but yeah, drinking water for free and buying the songs would be a lot smarter.  But since I buy a pepsi from school everyday at lunch, I figure I’ll have to win quite a few songs.

I think I’ll pass on the corn syrup and artificial color. Water and ninety-nine cents for me…

7-11 cups here in north texas have the game, and i spotted a few pepsi bottles, in the back of the fridge. The big gulp cups have to be cut to see if you win :( I was hoping theyd be pull off games or somthing on the cups =) so i could just walk in grab a few game peices and buy a gulp , grrr stupid errr umm smart 711

Well as for drinking water, I will be on vacation in Florida in mid March( I live in Canada)  So I will be buying as much pepsi and sierra mist as possible.  Only because the bottles won’t be in Canada :(

You can roll back the 7-11 cup tops and see if they are a winner before you get a gulp, 89 cents and you get a soda and a song every time

Does anyone else see that it says you can mail them a stamped envelope for a game piece?

Um, that’s one-third the cost of a Pepsi, and (supposedly) and equal shot at winning. Forget Pepsi, I’m gonna corner the market on stamps!

I don’t drink Pepsi. Coke and MD for me.
It’s too bad the free songs are not on bottles of MD,I’d win about 50 songs by the time it’s all done.

It’s true,if one does not buy Pepsi to begin with,why pay $4 for 3 bottles of soda to..maybe..win 1 or 2 songs?

When this promo was announced I thought “man,I’m gonna make out like a bandit” but the more I think about, I’m paying to drink soda I don’t like when i can just buy my music straight up and not bother with the soda.

The only way it works in my favor is if I get my Mom,who does like Pepsi to buy Pepsi only for the next month and give me her winning caps.

Not 1/3.  74 cents, so about 1/2.  But still!

So, Chrisluby, what you’re saying is that you are just as big of a thief as someone who would download music illegally?

I think it’ll be good for those who are regulars with Pepsi, etc.  But I wouldn’t go out of your normal habits when you’re only winning a $0.99 prize and it’s not even guaranteed.

I’m wondering how many hundreds of bottles will be thrown away by people, generally older who aren’t intrested in free songs. There’s gotta be some way to get their caps…

I don’t see why people are saying “a buck 50 for a bottle, 99

haha, im not saying im stealing the loosing cup. Im just ensuring the cup that i put my drink in that im paying for is gonna provide me with a better chance at winning. When you buy a coke you pay for the coke. But how ever you look at it, fine =) I dont use kazaa, and I drink plenty of diet pepsi anyways. I was just pointing out a flaw in the game.
