2-Liter Bottle as a Signup Bonus, Anyone?

Someone posted on Reddit about a signup bonus being offered by Walmart for the Walmart credit card.

soda signup bonus

Some of the good questions being asked by various Reddit members:

  • Is the signup bonus churnable?
  • Will they match the offer for those who applied last last week on a 20 oz bottle offer?
  • Minimum spend requirement?

Other Reddit  members mention having signed up in their youths for credit cards in order to get a free sandwich at Subway, free sunglasses and free T-shirts.

I still think the bottle of soda has to be the funniest. What’s the weirdest signup bonus you’ve ever seen?

I once applied for a credit card for two slices of pizza and a glass of Sprite. The nice thing about these kind of offers is that you can get them just for applying, so even if your credit is no good you can get something. Obviously you wouldn’t want to go after them if you are pursuing real rewards though.

This is for applying not getting approved for the credit card. Why not freeze your Transunion and go ahead for a free 2 liter? 😉

Because in most states, if you’re not an identity theft victim then there’s a fee of $5-$10 to issue a credit freeze. A 2 liter bottle of soda doesn’t cost $5.

You’re better off providing incorrect information on the application.

Returning from a business trip on Delta, I applied for their card in return for an aviator bear plush toy. My incentive was to surprise my dog with a chew toy he could destroy. I think I put down that I made $1,000 per year just to make sure I wasn’t actually approved for the card.

What happens if you put in wrong name/DOB/address or something so they fail to get the credit pull? Will they clawback the 2 liter?

When I was a youngster, free soda never seemed applying for a credit card. Someone won a Pepsi contest and the family got to shop at no cost for a half hour at a local grocery store. On command from a guy doing a play by play, someone from the winning family would begin putting six packs of bottled Pepsi in the cart. There was a mobile fountain trailer unit with a guy that kept filling paper cups. Then there was an opening of one of the first giant supermarket in the area, except this time, there was also free popcorn, free peanuts and free cotton candy. Finally, Kroger built a store near where I grew up. Pepsi was there pushing a new brand, Mountain Dew, with free Dew, corn cob pipes and metal clickers.

Only at Walmart!

So many questions…

Can I try the two-table trick and get two of them?

Is there another offer out there where the soda is actually cold?

Sadly back in college I legit applied for my first credit card for a 2-liter and T-shirt ourside the university bookstore. Back then it was more about novelty of having a credit card than rewards or cash back. Pretty sure Discover card was only cashback card game in town then.

A T-shirt that said I HEART Citibank! Choice of black or white, I believe. True story.
