Amazon MP3, Pepsi team up for promotion

Consumers who buy certain products can download DRM-free music files and Pepsi on Monday announced a new promotion called Pepsi Stuff, through which consumers buying Pepsi products will be able to download DRM-free digital music from Amazon MP3.

Consumers will be able to "bank" and redeem points on beginning Feb. 1, by collecting them through purchases of specially marked Pepsi products. Pepsi says that 4 billion marked packages will be in circulation. The promotion will extend across the entire Pepsi product line.

Amazon MP3 is Amazon's digital music purchase and download service. The service features artists represented by major labels and by tens of thousands of independent labels; it includes more than 3.25 million songs from over 270,00 artists in its inventory. The music downloaded via Amazon MP3 isn't protected by a digital rights management system and can be played on virtually any MP3-compatible device, including Apple iPods, iPhones and Macs.
