You can use a bottle of Lucozade to pay for the Tube this week


You can pay for the Tube with anything now, can’t you? Fuck your Oyster card, mate – these days you can pay with your regular card, your phone, even your watch. What next, eh? A bottle of Lucozade?!?!! 

Yes, actually: this week you can pay for the Tube with a bottle of Lucozade.


Between Tuesday 30 May and Friday 2 June, thousands of “lucky passersby” at Oxford Circus will receive a special edition bottle of Lucozade containing a chip allowing them to swipe through the gates just like they would with a contactless card or Oyster. 

“We are excited for Lucozade Energy to be able to launch this new campaign on the Tube,” said Ashleigh Roberts, senior brand manager at Lucozade. “In a city that’s always on the go, we’re giving Londoners an extra opportunity to get where they need to be in a fun and unique way.”

So yeah, if you’re lucky next week, you might be able to get to work for free, and with a load more energy too. You’ll probably need it after the bank holiday.
