Freestyle Machine-pay as you go?

Recommended Posts

Hi-Is it possible to get one or two drinks from the freestyle machine throughout the week and not have the soda/beverage package to do so? Ie, can I pay for just one or two freestyle drinks when I want them? Not sure how that works with the cup, etc? Thank you!

No, the cup has a chip on the bottom that allows it to work.

If you want an occasional soda, just purchase by the can.

Unfortunately, the available options for soda by the glass or by the can are so limited!  I would love to be able to get an occasional caffeine-free diet lime soda a la carte.

You can bring 12 cans of soda on board.  That should be enough for your occasional drink.

It doesn’t cost much money to buy the soda package. I think it’s like $9/day ($63/week).  Perhaps the cost of the soda package is worth the “upcharge” in order to have a bigger selection of sodas than you can get at the bar.

I realize I can purchase by the can but the Freestyle machine has a lot of fun options that my kids love-but literally, will just want 2-3 total over the week.

We were just wondering this exact thing. That's really a bummer. DH wanted the raspberry coke 😞
