Game over for anyone who is using email addresses that they don't have access to. Pepsi is now emailing the codes to the address you enter.

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.

Well, it looks like it's officially over. The link is gone from the main Pepsi Stuff page, and going directly to the page now gets a 403 Forbidden error.

And to see what true abuse is..

I can't believe all of you that lack any morals and clearly took advantage of Pepsi's good will.



And I missed out on all of it, sonofabitch!

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?

Has the selection of DVDs been drastically reduced? I'm not seeing the same selection on the Pepsistuff/Amazon page.

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 ? There are now only 28 choices (and two of those are Georgia Rule).

I really hope they update it with some new stuff. I've still got 867 points to waste.

checked with the amazon.com customer service and the person told me they gave no reason why they pulled all the dvd's and no word on whether they were gonna place new ones up or not.

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!!

Sincerely,
Kylee J

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.

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.
