The picture below shows a larger view of all (8) Unopened ©1992 Pepsi Cola Soda Gotta Have It Advertising Cards with Instructions in this lot. Some of these cards have consecutive numbers. Because all of these are sealed, we don’t know exactly what the folded instruction sheets say, but apparently these cards were good for a discount at locations such as Blockbuster, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Eddie Bauer, Avis, MCI, and Continental Airlines, and probably more stores. These cards are most likely expired now. All eight of these for one price! The cards inside each measure about 3-3/8'' x 2-1/8''. They appear to be in mint unopened, and unused condition as pictured.

Below here, for reference, is a short article that was found about these Pepsi “Gotta Have It” cards:

The Pepsi Gotta Have It Card
By: massreality

In the early 1990’s, Pepsi decided to change their logo and update their ad campaign which had grown stale since the big Pepsi Challenge of the 1970’s. They hired the hottest woman on Earth at the time, Cindy Crawford, and introduced the new Pepsi logo with this amazing commercial during the 1992 Superbowl. Armed with this great new ad campaign and a new logo that was embraced, Pepsi launched a new slogan, “Gotta Have It”. It was simple, catchy, and looked good on a t-shirt. Pepsi was cool and all us kids knew it. It was the first time I’d ever seen a major logo change and I was enamored with the new Pepsi vending machines featuring this snazzy new logo. Pepsi went from being a boring soft drink to the newest and coolest thing to drink. But Pepsi still had one more marketing tactic up their sleeve, and that was the Pepsi Gotta Have It card.

The Gotta Have It card was a discount card that you could get free inside specially marked packages of Pepsi, or at random places like malls or convenience stores. The card was good for discounts at Blockbuster, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Eddie Bauer, Avis, MCI, and Continental Airlines. Some of the discounts had deadlines, but most were generic percentages off or rent three get one free type deals. Over 40 million cards were distributed the summer of 1992 to the thrill of kids everywhere. Why kids? Well it looked like a credit card. It had punched numbers in it and a place for a signature, and these were so readily available every kid was able to get their hands on one or ten of these. We’d put them in our wallets and walk around feeling grown up because we had a hard plastic card that actually meant something in our wallets.

I only remember once ever using the discount, and that was at a Blockbuster. The sense of pride I had pulling out my handy Gotta Have It card to get my dad a free rental was intense. I knew then I was grown up, I handed a clerk a plastic card. Apparently the promotion was basically no risk to Pepsi and it worked out well for the retailers involved. It didn’t last very long, but it definitely left a lasting impression on me.
