Are Pepsi iTunes bottlecaps available in your area?

This is a simple story that MacDailyNews readers will write below. During last year’s Pepsi iTunes promo, we received many email messages from MDN readers either reporting Pepsi iTunes winning caps or complaining that the only Pepsi iTunes bottles they’ve seen are the ones on Apple’s website. And now we’re starting to get email about this promo again.

Unfortunately, most of these messages do not state the readers’ locations. So, please use the Reader Feedback section below to tell us all where you found your Pepsi iTunes bottles or where you’ve looked, but not found any bottles.

By the way, iPod Garage’s “iTunes Pepsi Bottlecap Map 2.0” which tracks winning and losing caps (and cups) and their locations across the United States is here.

  1. Just checked a 7-Eleven in Monrovia, CA (east of Pasadena). No cups or bottle caps yet. No Lakers promo this time, so I don’t know what their excuse is this time.

  2. I haven’t seen any at the stores I visit in Northern Orange County, CA.

    “Range”: Hmm…I believe JJ is becoming deranged after reading all these references to the magic word.

  3. Damn, my friend no longer works at the local convenience store. Whenever he was in the cooler restocking, he would sort the wins from the no-wins. He didn’t keep them, he just placed them in a row by themselves. It was still just as random if you didn’t know the system, but if you were his friend, you had a winner every time! Is this a bad thing? I guess I could sleep with the new store manager, but there are some things that I just won’t do, even for a free song.

  4. Why can’t Apple think different and do this type of promotion with bottled water?

    That way you don’t have to become a fat toothless slob after drinking that high fructose sugar water.

  5. None here in Christchurch, New Zealand!! As we have no iTMS, not a biggie!!

    Magic word “gives”

    As in “who ‘gives’ a rats a**”

  6. I found 2 pepsi 20 oz bottles with caps about a week ago. Picked up one and not a winner. Went to the local grocery store Sunday where the pepsi cooler only had the mountain dews with caps. Picked one up… a winner. Picked up another dew today…didn’t win. Well, I hit thte 1 out of 3 is a winner. I have, however, been given a winning cap from a friend!
