BATTLE CREEK, Mich., June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pringles brand, maker of America's favorite snack crisp, has teamed up with Perez Hilton, celerity blogger and avid music lover, to give consumers another reason to stock up on their favorite snack. From May 15 through Oct. 31, 2012 consumers can send in the original receipt from any four traditional-sized Pringles cans to receive a free Pringles Speaker by mail.
The portable Pringles Speaker fits on top of an empty, traditional-sized Pringles can and attaches to any personal MP3 player or similar music device to create the "Pringles Speaker Can." The acoustics of the empty can intensifies your summer playlist, providing quality sound and bass anywhere, anytime.
"During the summer, I love to hike and stay active and what's better than hanging out in the park with friends and family," says Perez Hilton, the Pringles brand's Official Summer Ambassador. "The Pringles Speaker Can is a perfect way to share my favorite summer songs and stay on track with my favorite up-and-coming musicians."
The Pringles Speaker Can is a convenient, portable way to bring your music with you when you don't have traditional speakers handy, including:
- Summer concerts and festivals
Pringles crisps are the perfect, on-the-go summer snack. The sturdy can keeps crisps more protected than bagged chips, while the recloseable top allows for easy snacking throughout the day. Additionally, Pringles cans fit into most car cup holders, perfect for any summer road trip.
"Summer is all about enjoying the warm weather and sharing fun times with friends and family," said Sam Minardi, Pringles Brand Manager. "With the Pringles Speaker Can, consumers can enjoy Pringles crisps and then reuse the empty can to amplify their favorite summer music wherever they go."
Pringles crisps are available at U.S. mass, grocery, club, dollar and drug retailers. All traditional-sized Pringles can purchases qualify to receive speakers. Please visit www.Pringles.com/current-promotions for more information or to download the free Pringles Speaker Can redemption form.
