i agree 99 cents for a prize isnt much of an incentive to buy pepsi. especially if your a coke drinker. whats with the propoganda btw about humiliating “illegal” downloaders. that must have been part of there probation.

Well, if the pepsi sells for the ordinary price, it is a free song.

Oh, i doubt they’ll bump up the price…

come on..anyone can see that it is an extra gift for those of us who spend a buck for a pepsi at school everyday, or if it is just part of your regular habit.

hey..otherwise, go buy the song!

Steps to get free songs legally:

1. Make friends with someone who drinks lots of Pepsi (tm), Diet Pepsi (tm) or Sierra Mist (tm).

2. Steal their bottlecaps when they’re in the bathroom “peeing soft drink.”

3. Use smuggled caps to download tracks.

i have to buy a stamp?

well, actually you will have to buy (on average) three bottles of pepsi to get the free song… not exactly a huge reward, but enough for me =D.

on the other hand, if you mail in for one, it will cost you a whole 74 cents! that is a 25 cent profit!

meanwhile, i am going to go and see if i can buy some in bulk from costco…
