Pepsi Summer Fun Badge

Pepsi is encouraging you to celebrate summer by exploring destinations related to this time of the year.  In return, they will be rewarding fans with a new Summer Fun Foursquare badge and cool prizes.   I know it probably breaks some kind of unwritten Atlanta rule to even discuss Pepsi in this city, but I’m here to help keep yall informed of what is going on in the world of Foursquare.  Since you can earn this badge here in metro Atlanta I wanted to pass it along…whether or not you choose to boycott it is up to you.

To earn the badge follow Pepsi on Foursquare then check in at summer related destinations like beaches, lakes, parks, sporting events, etc.  Users who are rewarded with the Summer Fun badge will see this unlock text:

Beach, BBQs, Parks and sun – what could be better? By unlocking this badge, you’re eligible to win awesome prizes. Now time to relax and unwind – it’s summertime!

Pepsi has not released info about the “awesome prizes”, but I will be sure to edit this post once those are known.  This badge is open to a wide variety of categories and you do not have to check-in at Pepsi tipped venues to earn it.  Pepsi has left tips at 2 metro Atlanta venues as of the time of this post:

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

UPDATE: Users who unlock the Pepsi Summer Fun badge before September 7th will be entered to win one of three awesome prizes:

  • Grand Prize – One winner will receive a trip for 2 to a 2011 Major League Baseball World Series game. ERV $5,475
  • First Prizes – Two winners will receive a “Pepsi Summer Kit” which consists of $500 gift card, Pepsi schwag, and free Pepsi drink coupons. ERV $1,500
