    I've seen contracts for vending machines, fountains, and for coolers.. but never for POS. I've thrown away plenty of POS over the years, as well as I have seen various store employees throw it away as well. Once the stuff is placed in an account, the account is free to do with it as they please.

    I have seen plenty of the stuff for sale on Ebay as well (along with tons and tons of bottler-distributed coupons).. something I would never do, personally.

      When I use the term POS I am not only referring to corrugated/paper material.
      POS Also includes but is not limited to outdoor Broadcasters that can cost as much as $100.Racks, Dump Bins,Coolers, Ice Chest, etc, anything that helps sell merchandise is considered POS material, or at least that is my understanding. Furthermore, the merchandise he had included new looking fountain machines.
      Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

        I have to agree, what the hell would Coke or Pepsi do with a vending machine or cooler that had their old logos on it? They spend millions of dollars updating their logos and images, they wouldn't want a warehouse full of old machines.

        Where I live in England there is a convenience store that has left their old Coke cooler on it's side, outside on a bit of waste ground to rot. I'm sure if anyone at Coke thought they may be able to save the company $50 by salvaging it, they would have done it 2 years ago when it was dumped there.

        I too am like Wonkapete, I have a collection of Coca-Cola memorabilia that I have amassed over the past 22 years. Including lots of POS items. Most of it I got from Coke's head office when I visited it on numurous occasions. I was taken in to the basement and shown loads of stuff, I was simply asked "have you got this?" or "do you need one of these?" and was just given it. I could only just see out of the car windows on my way home as it was almost overflowing. Some items are worth lots of money to produce. I am sure that people at Coke know that as long as the collector is happy, they will always buy their product. I buy lots of Diet Coke if they produce new cans here. I don't always drink all of it. Most of it gets poured down the drain.

          I love seeing people's awesome collections because I know I won't be able to afford one myself. The closest I got to one at one point was a friend of mine who got that Breakmate and had a bunch of POS cardboard stuff from Coke. I've always wanted a fountain in my home, and I plan on getting one when I get a basement. That's going to be my bar and game room, by the way.

            When I read gregs posts I did not get the impression he was trying to be rude. I would like to see the pictures too wonkapete. I always enjoy looking at the pictures you post. Keep it up, please.
