Pepsi vending machines on campus at the University of Wyoming have expanded their payment options to accept the student ID and declining balance funds.
According to an official release from the University of Wyoming, the new payment method will enable WyoOne ID cardholders with "Campus $$" or "Dining $$" to purchase beverages at all Pepsi machines on campus. The additional payment method is made possible by an agreement between the Wyoming's campus card vendor, Blackboard, and Pepsi Cola.
“This added payment option will provide WyoOne ID cardholders the ability to spend their WyoOne ID card debit account funds at all of the Pepsi vending machines on campus,” says Dawn Deiss, WyoOne ID office manager. “This adds to the ID card’s functionality and provides cardholders a convenient way to make purchases.”
Campus $$ funds can also be used to make purchases at Wyoming's University Store, to purchase parking passes and pay parking citations, to pay for print/copy services at campus libraries and union copy center, for residence hall laundry machines via the WyoOne debit-card functionality, as well as for purchases at Wyoming's on-campus food outlets.
Also included in the new vending machine initiative are Dining $$ funds. These funds are included in meal plans and can be used at dining locations across campus. Dining $$ are nonrefundable debit account funds placed on students' WyoOne Cards that are intended to provide greater choice and flexibility in student campus dining.
The vending machines accepting the WyoOne ID are centrally located at heavily trafficked academic building on campus, as well as at residence halls and other select campus locations. Deposits to WyoOne accounts can be made online, in person at the WyoOne ID Office, at the university's Cashier's Office, or at one of the cash deposit machines located throughout campus.
