“Faced with the task of spending a mandatory $2500 at his school’s cafeteria, a University of Southern California student got creative and spent his entire allowance on iTunes-eligible bottles of Pepsi. Employing the ’tilt’ method in order to ensure he was only taking home winners, and then taking them home in a suitcase, the student proceeded to dump most of the bottles down the trash chute, correctly stating that “Nothing in the terms and conditions said you had to drink this crap.” The photograph of him taking a break to enjoy a Diet Coke, after dumping 2,500 Pepsis down the trash chute? Classic,” MacMischief.com reports.
There are similiar elements to the MacDailyNews article our own SteveJack posted back in early February (see Related MacDailyNews article below). The student has posted photos of his endeavor along with introductory text:
As a USC freshman, I am forced to have a meal plan. This plan gives me $2500 “dining dollars” to spend over the semester. Given that it is incredibly difficult to purchase $2500 worth of food in such a short time, I realized I could turn this “money” into free songs on iTunes by purchasing Pepsi.
