Another intermittent update on these machines!
It’s been working for a while but hasn’t been announced in this thread yet, but RFID payment via your HSBNE membership card is now available on both the local drinks and the important drinks machine! We’re still working on creating a super easy way to load money onto your card that doesn’t require a person to do it for you, but for now talk to @nogthree and he can sort you out.
More local drinks have been purchased. I’m having difficulty getting international drinks at a decent price, so my apologies for this machine running a bit low. I hope to have new international drinks on offer soon.
(mmm, sugary goodness)
I’ve been changing around the drinks on offer quite a bit. Most recently, Mountain Dew is back, as is Pasito! Also for a limited time, Vanilla Pepsi Max is on offer, just to keep things interesting.
Also, people are still stealing from the Change Exchange. This is another reminder that it’s for exchanging change only, not for borrowing or loaning, and it is most certainly not a take-a-dollar-leave-a-dollar style charity tray. If you take coins from it and don’t immediately put in the same amount of notes, you are stealing, and that ain’t cool, yo. In an effort to try and prevent this from happening, I’m going to start reporting on how much is stolen, and when. I have historical records of this too, but I’ve decided to only start posting the recent ones.
- Between 8:30PM on Tuesday 17th of October and 4:30PM on Saturday 21st of October, $1 was stolen from the Change Exchange.
Finally the international machine’s offerings are a bit bare and I’m about to change it up so I won’t list its current options right now, but the local drinks machine options currently on offer are as follows:
- Mountain Dew
- Vanilla Pepsi Max
- Creaming Soda
- 600mL Water
