Pepsi is running a promotion with Amazon. Codes are included on specially-marked Pepsi products. These codes can be redeemed for select Amazon.com merchandise, such as MP3s (5 points), CDs (60 points), and DVDs (90 points) (several Criterions are available).

I don't drink Pepsi, and I never will. However, reading the rules for the game revealed something interesting:

For four (4) free Codes (as defined below)/and a copy of the full Official Rules send your name and complete address postmarked by 10/22/08 to: Pepsi Stuff Code, P.O. Box 3418, Young America, MN 55558-3418. No self-addressed, stamped envelope (“SASE”) is required. Limit one (1) free request per hand-addressed postmarked outer envelope.

That's right; no restriction on the number available per address, and no SASE required.

If one were interested in a Criterion DVD, then one could purchase 23 post cards from the post office, fill them out, and mail them to the above address.

23 * $0.26 = $5.98
23 * 4 = 92 points = 1 DVD and 2 points

$5.98 + $2.98 shipping = $8.96

You'd have to include shipping on the order. (Super Saver would not apply, since only one Pepsi Stuff item is allowed per order)

The rules say "Limit one (1) free request per hand-addressed postmarked outer envelope". If they are serious about the envelope part, one can purchase envelopes from the post office with postage already affixed. I believe they are less than 50 cents each. In this case,

23 * $0.50 = $11.50
$11.50 + $2.98 = $14.48 and a lot of writing.

So there you have it.

Good point. The codes have different values ranging from 1 to 6 points each. See the link below.

Assuming the post cards work, yes. I think I might just call and ask if a post card is acceptable for the 4 free codes offer.

Would having Prime get free shipping on the Pepsi stuff items?

If using envelopes, would you include a card with your address? Or would you assume that they will get your address off the return portion (upper left) of your entry?

I thought it worth pointing out to people as you seemed to be ignoring it yourself. Is there anything to lead you to believe that postcards will work beyond the fact that the rules seem to state that they will not?

And just because some yahoo on the phone says otherwise or a few people get away with it, I'm sure Pepsi will (sooner or later) enforce the rules and the people may end up wasting a bunch of money.

Seems like way to much of a YMMV to me.

Nope. I just ordered Weeds Season One, and I just basically clicked on it, it asked me if I wanted it sent to my regular address, I gave them my phone number, and clicked Place Order. As easy as that.

For all the people looking for free codes, co-workers are a great source... I drink a lot of Pepsi as it is, but I can always use more codes. I've got a box next to my desk and started a whole contest with my co-workers. One entry (a cap with a code) gets them a "heartfelt thanks", 10 entries earns them a "sincere letter of appreciation", and the person who enters the most times wins "a high-five". I've had 2 or 3 people actually say after reading the rules (I've got "Official Rules" posted next to the box) "I want to win the high-five." I have a leaderboard and everything. I figure (or am hoping atleast) as this goes on, some of these guys are going to get competitive with the leaderboard and want to win.

It's going on practically all year, so there's lots of time to collect. Just figure out a way to get people to want to give them to you... I'm also not above digging through the recycle bin at work... Whatever it takes.

This might sound crazy, but it's working... In the week and a half since I made this post, I've collected over 100 codes from my co-workers. And I haven't had to beg or offer a cent. It's amazing what the promise of a simple thank you can do.

As I suspected, the leaderboard is really stirring up the competition, but one guy from the mail room is going nuts (over 50!) by collecting them for me from throughout the building, so I'm struggling to keep everyone else interested...

I've also collected one Coke Rewards cap which I don't want/need, so if anyone can use it, the code is: PA0W7MX0WJNB.

Kind of a decent deal for pepsi points if you drink the stuff. Safeway has a deal where you buy 2 12 packs and get 3 free plus you get 10 extra pepsi stuff points that print at checkout. The first 2 packs cost 5.99 each so you get 5 for 11.98.

These are the times when having a close relative as a bar owner is really cool! Marlboro, Pepsi, etc. I remember when Pepsi first began these points (probably before mp3s were popular). we collected enough to buy an entire wardrobe practically. Not many people buy Pepsi 20 cases at a time! Since then, I've moved away but I know my brother spent the entire summer collecting Marlboro miles and picked up some really nice things from that promotion. I'll have to call them and see if they are collecting Pepsi points now.

I'm thinking of saving up my points, and spending them all at one time to buy entries in the drawing for the home theater system. I figure I drink enough Pepsi, and if I spend them all in one day's drawing, I've got a decent shot at having the lion's share of entries that day.

Has anyone had trouble redeeming the "Buy Pepsi Get One Free" caps?

According to the terms and conditions of the promotion, you're supposed to take the cap to the original place of purchase to get a free bottle.

The times I have tried, the cashiers will tell me that the cap is not good for a free Pepsi, but rather B0G1. In other words, you have to buy 2 bottles in order to get the 3rd free.

dadaluholla
04-04-08, 09:38 PM
Why would you have to buy 2 to get 1 free? It says "BUY PEPSI 20 OZ GET 1 FREE". If you buy one 20oz bottle of Pepsi, you get another at no cost. I have had no issues with this.

IamHydrogen1
04-04-08, 09:46 PM
Right, but my point is that if I have a cap I have already paid for one and that is my proof of purchase. I shouldn't have to buy another to get a free 20oz Pepsi.

IamHydrogen1
04-04-08, 11:27 PM
Actually, I think it does:




Terms of offer: BUY PEPSI 20 OZ., GET ONE FREE offer or BUY PEPSI 1 LT, GET 1 FREE offer. The offer applies solely to participating Pepsi bottle products and the free 20 oz. or free 1 liter may be redeemed only in a subsequent visit to the same store by the end of the Promotion Period. Maximum retail value up to $1.39 (consumer pays tax and deposit, if applicable). Odds of receiving this offer are 1 in 8 (in areas where available). TO REDEEM THIS OFFER, present bottle cap with the buy-one-get-one-free message at a participating retailer on your next store visit to the same store (i.e., where you bought the original 20 oz. bottle or in some areas, a 1 liter bottle of any Pepsi product) before the end of the Promotion Period, and get another 20 oz. bottle (or 1-liter bottle, as applicable) for free

dadaluholla
04-05-08, 12:23 AM
That is bizarre.

What if you don't buy it at a store? Like I get most of my caps at the vending machine at work. I would have never even considered you can just walk in and get a free Pepsi on it's own. They really could have avoided confusion by just saying FREE 20 OZ PEPSI.

My co-worker contest idea has sort of fizzled out. I've taken in around 350 codes from co-workers, but once the top guy reached 100, everyone else sort of gave up. Plus my second biggest contributor started giving hers to her boyfriend so that he could enter the sweepstakes. Next time I do this I'm going to give out little sticker books or something where people can earn stickers for every 10 or whatever. The way I have it now, once they reach ten, and their "sincere letter of appreciation" (gave out 7!), unless they have a shot at winning, there's nothing left to keep playing for.

However, digging through the recycling bins around here still scores me 5 or 6 caps a day, plus with my own ~3 bottle a day habit, I'm still doing ok. My biggest issue is finding things to buy with them. The selection is pretty bad, IMHO, and they're not adding anything new... But I can't really complain about free...

LOL... I haven't pesterred anyone. I put the box out and give them the prize. The idea was to get the codes without actually having to be a pest... It worked. Sometimes I do think about how pathetic I must look digging through the recylcing bin, but it's almost become an obsession now that I don't care.

I said the selection was bad, not that I couldn't find anything I wanted... American Pie Trilogy, Weeds season 1, Friday Night Lights season 1, 4 cd's... all things that I probably wouldn't spend money on, but will gladly take for free. I wish there were more tv seasons I wanted, but instead I'll end up filling out my collection of Three's Company seasons...

Except as stated in Rule 7 above, the maximum number of valid Points per person/Account that can be entered at the Website is 3,000 total throughout the Promotion Period.

No matter how many e-mail addresses you can get, once you get 3,000 points, you can't enter any more codes for the rest of the promotion, which ends in November.

I don't have Prime, but I'm glad to know I won't have to put a couple bucks on the CC just to get my CD.

It's not that I'm cheap, it just seems silly to have to make a CC payment check for $3.

It's about time. I was starting to think whoever was running things over there was completely incompetent. The way it was you not only didn't need access to the email, it didn't even have to be a real email. You could literally type anything as long as you put an @ and a . in it somewhere the form would accept it and give you a code.

I have gotten 8 or so dvds so far, there are still a few I plan to get, but i have been so unmotivated...this week, 2 clients and a guy i work with gave me the ones they had been saving for me. I have like 250 caps I need to enter...

So far everything I have ordered has come w/i a week and in great shape.

Does anyone know if the Voltron sets are in the tins?

You can get 5 points for signing up for the Pepsi Racing League contest:

http://www.pepsifantasyracing.com

Once you sign up, activate the account through the email they send, and then check your profile for a code listed on the right.

Only one entry per email address/person unless you want to be disqualified from the contest (oh noes).

What happened to all of the DVDs available with Pepsi Points at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=ps_hm_all_dvd?node=390976011) ? There are now only 28 choices (and two of those are Georgia Rule).

05-28-08, 01:11 AM
I'm going to call the Pepsi Stuff hotline again tomorrow and ask them about it again. I called once and another guy called as well, both last week and we were both told they would have them back on there this week. I was told about midweek so I'm going to give it until around 3 tomorrow.

another person got an email response saying they weren't adding anymore. So who knows.

I hope the person that responded in the email was just clueless.

I spoke with them again, and also received an email. The email said DVDs are limited and they will add more blah blah. The phone call said they would be adding more. I noticed yesterday they added to the electronics section, mainly with stuff that had been removed before or had previously been OOS. But at least theres hope!

This is the email I received. It's like no one knows what's going on... I really hope they add new titles.


Thank you for contacting us regarding the Pepsi Stuff Promotion.

We are aware that the option to search DVDs by genre is currently missing from the website. We have forwarded this to our research team and are currently awaiting a response. At this time we suggest you check the website periodically for this to once again be posted.

We apologize for any inconvenience, if you have any further questions or concerns please contact us back. Thank you for choosing Pepsi and have a great day!!

You can get two free Pepsi points by going to PepsiRecycling.com and taking a quick quiz about Recycling. It takes about 2 minutes and they email the codes to you.

Looks like the pepsi recycling site has taken all the abuse it can handle; the site is no longer giving out points.

Robert
06-14-08, 10:35 PM
It says in a pop-up that they are temporarily out of codes, it doesn't mention anything about it being due to abuse. Pepsi Fantasy Racing changed their rules making it harder to get points, and VMTV in in the process of changing theirs, both due to abuse. Hopefully the Pepsirecycling and VMTV promotions will be working again soon.

Its obviously abuse because all it takes is a few seconds to register a new email address to take the quiz multiple times and rack up the points.

How could they possibly run out of points? The combinations of numbers and letters in a 10 character code have to be in the billions.

Here's just a little update as far as what's up with just offering the featured DVD's...

I emailed them a few days ago simply asking if they were ever going to be offering anymore. This is the response I got...

I'm so sorry, you've clearly been disappointed by the current selection of DVD's. The initial supply allocated for the program has exhausted. Please know that your feedback is helpful and I plan to share your comments with the appropriate people at the headquarters office.

So that didn't really tell me what I wanted to know. I'm in a situation where I have a bunch of codes and I don't want to use them on stuff that I really don't want if they are going to offer more items (a "secondary supply", perhaps?), but I also don't want the stuff that they are still offering to be "exhausted" while I'm waiting, wondering if they're going to add anything else. So I emailed them and told them so. This is the response I recieved to that email:

We will periodically offer Limited Edition Hard Goods; these are Hard Goods that will be available in limited numbers and are available while supplies last. Unfortunately we are unable to provide dates the items will be available and do recommend that you check the website regularly for updates.

I'm not quite sure what a Limited Edition Hard Good is, but I've been checking everyday and haven't seen anything yet... That was 4 days ago.

Just thought I'd let people know to keep an eye on the site, since it sounds like they may be adding some stuff with limited quantities.

I'm disappointed, but frankly not terribly surprised, by all the good DVDs getting pulled from the rewards list.

I think its pretty obvious that some people abused the free points so much from all the places like slick deals and Pepsi allocated a specific number of DVD's for this program. I personally think some of those people from places like slick deals ruin it for everyone.

Sad to see the promotion come to an end.

I wonder if they will learn their lesson and not have code giveaways that can be easily exploited, leading to reduction of prizes. I'm guessing not, because even after the 5-point giveaway in May, they had the PepsiRecycling 6-point per quiz promo, the PepsiFantasyRacing 5-point per registration promo, the Grandparents.com 6-point per registration promo, and the VMTV virtual bottles with codes promo. I can't remember Coke having any code giveaways ripe for exploitation, coupons for free bottles yes, but not for codes.
I would hope they learned. That May giveaway was a joke. You could literally just mash the keyboard, as long as you put an @ and a . someplace it would accept it as an email and show you a code. I can't blame people for exploiting that one when Pepsi didn't even have enough sense to check for a valid email and send the code that way.

The giveaways after that weren't so bad. Sure, you could do them multiple times, but it took some serious patience. I doubt many people would take the time to sign up for Pepsi Fantasy Racing thousands of times.
