Slurpee Summer Music Fest
Following on the heels of earlier Pepsi and Ben&Jerry's iTunes giveaways, 7-11 is now doing their own music promotion with Coca Cola. Slurpee Summer Music Fest 2004 is giving away MusicMatch downloads, cell phone ringtones and graphics, as well as some bigger prizes like mp3 players, cell phones, and the grand prize, a trip to the Reading Festival. This year's Reading lineup includes Morrissey, 50 Cent, and The White Stripes.
I don't work for 7-11, but my parents did own a franchise for many years, so please excuse my 7-11 enthusiasm. Go 7-11! I remember an old giveaway in the early 80's where I won about 50 t-shirts with pictures of slurpees on them. Back then, the slurpee cups just had a tab at the bottom where you got your game card. For this round, you'll need to punch in the number from your slurpee cup at the headache inducingly noisy Slurpee site. But you can avoid the Flash madness a little by skippping to the mercifully "music"-less contest site. I'm going to be singing the "slurp slurp" ditty all day.
The Pepsi contest was sort of fun, especially after MacMerc discovered how to be a winner every time. If I discover any such thing for Slurpee, I won't hold out, I promise. Oh, one more Slurpee tip from an expert: the new Diet Pepsi slurpee is very tasty for anyone avoiding carbs (not me). However, considering this is a Coca-Cola thing, you'll probably have to gulp some sugar until the promotion is over.
