Coca-Cola Co. is launching Sprite.com an information only site that will be dedicated to the lemon-lime soft drink.

This ambitious internet project to be launched on October 15 will team up with RocketCash Corp., a portal which allows consumers to purchase online without the need for a credit card, and Sprite.com will offer rewards for 14 months under one billion Sprite bottle caps, redeemable for cash to shop on the internet.

"What we want to do is build loyalty among teens, so we're launching this programme on the internet to increase the frequency of consumption among our core target consumers," said Dick Patton, associate brand manager for Sprite at Coca-Cola, Atlanta.

"The Sprite site will have an urban feel consistent with prior marketing communications," he added.

Caps on 20-ounce, one litre and 500ml bottles of Sprite will be marked with special codes and consumers will log on to www.sprite.com enter the alphanumeric codes found under the bottle cap and find out its worth, and this can vary from 20 cents to $1.

One in 12 caps can be exchanged instantly at the store for a free Sprite and Sprite.com will also include music and graphics.
