Pepsi is out to prove that burgers are better with Pepsi, and they’ve got a deal to try to convince Atlantans of that.
On May 28th, you can enjoy a burger from your favorite burger place, plus a Pepsi. Then, Pepsi will pay you back for your Pepsi! Of course, you’ll have to find a burger place that serves Pepsi — because chains like Burger King and McDonalds exclusively serve Coca-Cola.
Here’s how it works:
- Share a photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram of yourself with any fast food burger and a pepsi, both purchased on May 28th. Use the hashtag #BetterWithPepsi. Pepsi will message you and you can share the receipt. Please note that the drink must be a Pepsi. If the fast food place doesn’t serve Pepsi, you’ll need to buy it elsewhere and upload both receipts. Another note: The share must be public, or Pepsi won’t see it.
- Alternatively, if you see a #BetterWithPepsi ad on Facebook or Instagram, you can click on the ad and share your receipt that way.
Once Pepsi verifies the receipt(s), you’ll be provided a rebate via Venmo, Paypal, or a digital gift card up to $3.49. Here’s the fine print!
