SodaStream Offering Free Sparkling Water Machines In Exchange For Customer Selfies With Discontinued Keurig Kold

Just in case Keurig wasn’t having a bad enough week after announcing it would be discontinuing its Kold soda-making machine and offering anyone who bought one a full refund, SodaStream has chimed in to rub a bit of salt directly into that carbonated wound.

The Keurig competitor says it will give Kold customers a free SodaStream Fountain Jet sparkling water maker — and all they have to do to get one is snap a photo of themselves with the soon-to-be obsolete machines.

“As the world’s largest home carbonation brand with more than 25 million users, we at SodaStream invite disappointed Kold users to enjoy fresh sparkling water at home every day,” said Doug Pritchard, president of SodaStream, North America in a press release. “SodaStream offers an environmentally friendly and economical solution that we’re certain these people will enjoy for many years to come.”

How to do it: Owners of Kold machines can email their photo with the machine, their name, address, phone number, and the Kold machine’s serial number to SodaStream will then send them a promotional code that can be redeemed at for a free SodaStream Fountain Jet machine.

The fine print: the deal is only open to adult residents of the contiguous USA, with a limit of one promo code per Kold machine, and it’s limited to the first 2,000 eligible applicants whose emails are received on or before June 17, 2016. It’s still unclear how many of the $370 machines Keurig sold.

Applicants can use the promo code against the purchase of one black SodaStream Fountain Jet sparkling water maker from, and will only be responsible for paying shipping and handling.

Once you get the promo code, you’ll have to use it within 10 days of issue or it will expire and will not be replaced, SodaStream warns.
