Upon making your first purchase at Soda Sense, you become a Soda Sense Exchange Member, WELCOME! With this first order, you are automatically signed up as an Exchange Member and have an account so we can continue to make exchanges available to you. No membership or subscription fees are required.

This exchange entry is a one-time price of $51.99. It is designed to benefit those of you who have one canister on-hand with no spares. Two (2) full 14.5oz, 60L CO2 canisters are mailed to you in our exchange box. A prepaid USPS return label is included along with exchange instructions. When you have two (2) empty 14.5oz, 60L CO2 canisters, from Soda Sense or a manufacturer listed below, use the exchange box to mail them back at the membership rate of $12.99/canister for refill.
This exchange entry is a one-time price of $29.99. It is designed to benefit those of you who already have two (2) 14.5oz, 60L CO2 canisters on-hand and need a backup for when you begin exchanging. One (1) full 14.5oz, 60L CO2 canister is mailed to you in our exchange box. A prepaid USPS return label is included along with exchange instructions.

To avoid purchasing an extra box, save each box to use for future exchanges. If you discard the box, we will send a new one at the flat rate of $4.99 to you to continue the exchange process.
Upon completing your first order or the Life ring, you thereby authorize us to charge your identified payment method the amount stated above for that option for canister(s) and/or exchange box and label.
Our exchange process requires you to send two (2) empty 14.5oz, 60L CO2 commercially available canisters from any manufacturer.

Save the exchange box, prepaid USPS label, and plastic canister caps sent with every order to use for future exchanges. Additional exchange-boxes or USPS labels can be provided at your cost if the exchange box is not saved (see option 4 above).
Before placing empty canisters in the exchange box, verify each of the two (2) 14.5oz, 60L CO2 canisters are empty by: (i) fully using them as prescribed by your soda machine manufacturer and then (ii) after removing the empty canister from your soda machine, depressing the center point with a spoon to allow any remaining CO2 to safely escape. CAUTION: in doing step (ii), be in a large room or other open space and depress center point slightly to allow gas to escape slowly and safely and only do this for up to ten (10) seconds. If gas remains after ten (10) seconds, contact Soda Sense before trying to return the canister.
Seal each canister valve using the provided plastic cap. Next, place the provided USPS return label over the existing label on the exchange box. Seal the box with tape and place in any USPS mailbox, including your home mailbox.
NOTE: Exchanges that are sent to us with only one (1) canister may be subject to significant additional charges.
Once the box of exchange canisters is received and scanned into our system, you thereby authorize us to charge your on-file payment method the rate of $12.99/canister for your refill and exchange shipment of refilled CO2 canisters.
