    So? We have non coke products in one at my school. Well use to before it broke. You just buy the machine and soda then stock it yourself.

    I can only imagine how someone ACTUALLY came across THIS trick

    "Hey dude, I`m so TOTALLY going to get free change from this vending machine, just watch as I push random buttons and stuff. Yea dude, it`s JUST like entering a code at the title screen of ANY video game man. Ok, ok, ok, here I go... watch"

    Seriously, unless he freakin` BUILT the machine, no one in their right mind would look at a vending machine and think to do that.

    Well there are certain things you can due with the keys on vending machines but I doubt this works. I am going to guess it works the same way a pay phone does.

    You put the money into the machine and it falls into a temporary storage. Then you sit there at the machine debating if you should get your favorite soda or if you feel a little adventurous. Depending on what button you push one of two doors will open up. The first is if you hit the button to select a soda. The machine sends a signal to the temp box to open one hatch and let the money fall into the holding area probably 5x5x5. If you hit the change release button then it opens the other door either manually by pushing a lever or automatically by sending another signal. Either way it drops your change in the coin slot.

    Also that code that I was talking about is easily changed. And yes I have seen them use the code before although it was one of those machines where you kit a letter then a number.

    "Forget free change, find a way to get free soda lol."
    You can on some of the older models of the new soda machines. The one`s with the conveyor belt and the little bottle thing. There use to be a door that if held shut made the machine think the soda was sold out and give you your money back. Then you just buy another soda. The trick is you need to grab the first and second soda really fast or else it will trip a sensor saying the soda fell. Also you have to position your arm awkwardly and you look really stupid while doing it so you will most likely get caught before you get the free soda.

    Also, I goto a nerd school where the guys have nothing better to do then try to get free soda, free arcade games and play magic the gathering. There are literally like 5 girls there and being a nerd school they aren`t really attractive. So if you get 10 or so people with an average IQ of 130 you will get something like this or making a paintball turret.

    I mean, when he pressed the buttons, no pop came out, so he couldn`t have put in change beforehand.

    Newer soda machines go through testing to ensure that the companies that own these things don`t get crapped on by people like us trying to get free soda. And, regardless, it`s not free, because if it is done enough, it starts to affect the vendors bottom line, so they raise prices. WHO CARES ABOUT FREE FREAKIN SODA ANYWAY?

    using the hack he showed you can do some weird poo with coke machines. you can see how many were sold, how cold it is inside the machine etc etc...

    there is a switch on the inside of the machine, and if that switch is off, the change trick wont work. most machines have the switches off, but there are a few dumb people who leave the switches on in their machines. its worth giving a shot. yore only wasting 30 seconds which youve already wasted by reading this.

    The change in a pop machine is already in the storage. It can`t come back up and out that way.

    He`s at the top, holding the change return and dumping coins right though while the camera is focused at the bottom.

    Lol, yeah. My giant sausage fest of school.

    Oh by the way, GSP class FTW!

    Here`s a small story about how nerdy my school is. One day a bird landed on a transformer and we lost power to the school for a couple hours. Once everyones laptops died we sat around trying to figure out what to do and realized that the soda machines were still on. Turns out the soda machines are connected to the electronics classroom which has a backup generator for something and they were basically plugged into that. Then someone busted out risk, I was yellow, it was a good day.

    There was a coke machine hack that I read online (some time ago) it involved taking a squirt bottle (like a personal gatorade bottle) filling it with water and liquid soap, squirtting it into the change machine and drinks would pop out. I`m not sure if it works or not.

    We used to get free sodas when I was a kid, by tipping the machine forward and then dropping it back into place. A few cans would drop out and fall through the slot. They have since fixed this problem, but it used to work well.

    other than that youll only get to see Vend, or numbers. If you want free soda get a f ucking baseball bat and a bookbag. works every time

    I used the coke machine hack (for the newer ones to get to the menu) and told everybody at school about it and they started doing it all the time, and then the principal or somebody probably found out and they switched machines. (still worked on it though) but nobody does it anymore.

    Well when he let go of the return change button, the coins started coming out right away. I doubt that he was able to put in the coins that fast.

    There was a Pepsi vending machine at my high school that would dispense multiple Mountain Dews by inserting the requisite 50 cents and pressing the Mountain Dew button like a mad man. Usually we got about a 6-pack for the price of one can. They didn`t figure it out until around 6 months later.

    Um...not that this has anything to do with the video. ROIRNFITR. Grandpa`s gonna go take his meds now.

    They toook the soda machine out of my school cus the school board said there are to many fat asses. But they kept the one in the teachers lounge. That pisses me off. If they want to reduce the number of obese people in the world by only having healthy stuff available in schools, that should go for the teachers too.

    Also, i would try this on the water machine in the cafeteria but just incase of the slim possibility it did work i dont wanna get in trouble cus theres like 5 cameras in the cafeteria.

    My dad owned 2 different pop machines like that seen in the vid and both had a tiny number pad inside the machine, only accessable with a key.

    So I find these things hard to beleive. Think practicly a coke machine in a week can stock up $150 a week in coins and it all spills out of that little hole? I dont think so. Its usually a kind of collection bin in the back.

    Sure they can glitch and you get more change or something. Once I got an orange crush and the entire machine emtied, I needed 6 friends to help me carry it all

    how is that a joke? Stereotyping yourself even more? Purposely? That gives us even more reasons to laugh at Canadians. Seriously, I`m sick of seeing the mall parking lot half full of Canadian RVs every summer (i live like 50 mins from the boarder) If you wanna go camping go to a friggin camp ground, not the mall for Christ`s sake.
