Until March 31, 2009, or until the coupons are used up, anyone 13 or older can log on to freedietpepper.com and register their information to receive a free 2L or 20-oz. bottle. As long as that person is one of the first 2 million registered, he or she will receive a coupon within four to six weeks and can redeem it wherever the beverage is sold.
Coupons expire June 30, 2009, and there is a limit of one coupon per person.
