Once you've gathered up some 7-Up coupons, you'll be one step closer to enjoying the lemon-lime taste that's delighted consumers since the early part of the 20th century. But with so many choices in the era of the Internet, where should a smart shopper begin?
That's where this article comes in. We'll give you a number of suggestions for where to find free coupons in 2012, plus we'll walk you through the nutritional value of all the 7Up flavors. In addition, we'll take a brief look at the history of the 7-Up company.
The good folks at 7 Up are always looking for new ways to quench your thirst. As of this writing, there are seven flavors available under the 7-Up label. Each is explained below.
Printable coupons are convenient, but I find the process of combing through numerous websites to be frustrating. Many sites claim to offer free 7Up coupons, but they often fall short of those claims or feature coupons that are several years old. That problem doesn't exist when you stick to the Sunday newspaper.
Each week, all the latest coupons will be delivered right to your mailbox inside the weekend edition. Just grab a pair of scissors and a comfortable chair, and get ready to save some money. But remember to keep an eye on the expiration date, as most coupons are only good for a limited time.
While the official 7-Up website doesn't offer printable coupons for the product, it does have more information about their Facebook Credits promotion. Basically, each 20 oz. bottle of 7Up has a code under the cap. Enter the code online, and you'll receive between one and 5,000 Facebook points. These points can then be redeemed at Facebook for games, movies, and a number of other prizes. If you're going to buy 7-Up anyway, why not get some free stuff in the process?
I also suggest finding sites that update coupons on a daily basis. While they might not always feature free 7Up coupons, it's a lot simpler than looking through multiple sites each time you're in the mood for some lemon-lime goodness.
The lemon-lime drink known as 7Up was created in 1929 by Charles Leiper Grigg and distributed by his St. Louis company known as The Howdy Corporation. After two years of testing various formulas, it hit the market two weeks before the famed Wall Street crash, The drink was originally known as 'Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda.”
The popularity of the drink began to increase, and Grigg changed the name of his organization to The Seven-Up Company in 1936. By the latter part of the next decade, it had become one of the top-three soft drinks on the planet.
Until 1950, 7Up contained lithium citrate, a mood stabilizer used in the medical field to treat bipolar disorders and manic episodes. The company was purchased by Phillip Morris in 1978, and it later merged with Dr. Pepper in 1988. Then, in 1995, it was purchased by Cadbury Schweppes.
Let's take another look at the nine flavors currently available for 7-Up, this time with an emphasis on the nutritional value of each. For the purposes of this list, a serving is defined as 8 ounces (although most consumers will either drink 12 or 20 ounces).
That concludes our look at the best places to find 7-Up coupons. Armed with this knowledge, you'll be saving money and experiencing the lemon-lime taste of 7Up in no time.
