Welcome to the My Coke Rewards Discussion Thread, proud to talk MCR since 2006!

My Coke Rewards has been officially extended through Dec. 31, 2013, according to their site's FAQ.

My Coke Rewards (MCR) FAQ:

- How may I contact them?
  • Phone: 1-866-674-2653 anytime 9am-7pm EST Monday through Friday to reach an agent directly
  • email address: mycokerewards.support@na.ko.com
  • Ask Allysa (formerly Hank) feature on the MCR site -- not always reliable
- When does the promotion end? The program will end on December 31, 2013, (but has often been renewed).

- Codes with 12 characters will still be accepted into early 2012, (still working as of late October, 2012.)

- Weekly Point Limits, Invalids & Start and End of Weeks:

Up to 120 points per week are permitted to be entered per account per week. A week starts at 12:00 a.m. E.T., each Monday, and ends at 11:59 p.m. E.T. each following Sunday.

Any Bonus Points earned are not included in the 120 point weekly limit.

From the FAQ, posted Nov. 30, 2012:

"The current phase of the program ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on December 31, 2013, and you can enter codes up through 11:59 p.m. ET November 30, 2013. We started this up back in early 2006, so we’ve been doing this for a while. We have to take it year by year; the program has been extended in the past, but that does not necessarily mean it will happen again. In years past, extensions have been communicated near the end of the year, so please read the full Terms and Conditions and keep an eye on these dates. Codes can be entered through November 30, 2013; points can be spent through December 31, 2013."

From the 2012 rules: (will be updated Jan. 1, 2013)
"The current phase of the Program begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET") on January 1, 2012 and is scheduled to end at 11:59 p.m. ET on December 31, 2012 (the "Redemption Period"), but Sponsor reserves the right to shorten, extend, suspend, modify, or cancel the Program, at its discretion, at any time.

"Codes may be entered beginning 12:00 a.m. ET on January 1, 2012 until 11:59 p.m. ET on November 30, 2012 (the "Collection Period")."

"However, if an Enrollee enters 20 invalid codes on a given day Enrollee will be unable to enter any more codes that day."

Regarding cap/flap disposal, I usually keep mine for a while in case verification is required. When I do throw them out, I'll put them in the regular trash so that someone searching the recycle bin won't get them thinking they are still good. So far I've been lucky with the caps I've found at recycle bins with only 1 or 2 already used. Although lately, there seems to be fewer caps/flap to be found there.

Sure, there are ways to cheat, but it's usually MCR cheating us. laugh out loud

Instant wins are randomly seeded and entered into the system. In order for someone to win all the prizes, it will have to be an inside job where they tell the other party the exact time of the release win.

Most of the time I also throw out my Spent Caps in the Regular Trash.
Quote from kristinwold View Post :

Whenever I enter a cap code, I put a little X on the cap with a black permanent marker. It helps me remember which caps I've entered, and it may help a future recycler from having to reenter lots of digits needlessly.
The one thing that really annoys me is entering Used Caps. I also mark any used caps with an "X" if it is put back on the bottle and into recycling.

Picked up a dasani case at the local safeway while on vacation. When the case was empty, I turned it over to cut out the 20 point flap, and noticed that the flap was already cut out!

Seems like the employees at that safeway are poaching codes when they are still in the wild.

Maybe they think that people won't notice the missing code since it is on the bottom - which is what happened to me...

By they way, I'm still loving the "No-Flavor-Confirmation" whilst redeeming Powerade caps! Those 240 are just flying in! laugh out loud
I also really Enjoy seeing (6) points pop up for each Powerade cap entered . . . .

Yeah! nod

I don't have enough Powerade caps to fill all the accounts for my nieces & nephews . . . for 3 weeks . . . (that's a lot of Powerade!), OMG but a lot. I had to count out caps on the kitchen counter and make another bag of caps to use for the next 2 weeks!

I think it is usually just one week of DPDs for Powerade before, which rode over 2 Coke weeks. But three weeks of DPDs for Powerade? Amazin'!

A Quick Thought:

Now with the Double Point Minute Maid Promotion - I am wondering What Caps are the safest to use first. I was saving my Powerade Caps for Double Points Days and I entered a half dozen Minute Maid Caps a couple of weeks ago.
There are Diet Coke Promotions - Coke Zero Promotions (But for me they come up as Powerade anyway).
I suppose the Best Choice of What Caps To Use First would be the Red Caps? I do not recall seeing any special promotions for them (other than Texting).
Anyone know of a better cap choice to get rid of first?
Quote from jimmy5 View Post :
Yes, I generally use red & Diet Coke caps first, with almost no doubling, then green from Sprite. Since they've started so much doubling since the 120-point a week thing went into effect, I have been saving Powerades & Minute maids and other black ones that coulda been Coke Zeros. But because I have a lot of them, I can sit and wait . . . that's not a good option for those without tons of caps. It's more important I think to try to fill your 120-a-week than to wait.


Good luck!
The Above Might Help You Decide Which Caps To Enter . . . .

Is it really so much to ask that MCR give us a few extra points on our birthday? Disney Movie Rewards gives 100. MCR could spare 10, I think. Just sayin' they offer that, rather than suggesting you that you "use your points to treat yourself today." (Granted, have been getting quite a few extra this month anyway... oh, #firstworldproblems)

i agree with you being even a little generousity would give them more loyalty and overall good feeling to everyone. red robin is good example of companys benefiting from being generous.free birthday burger and they always have bottomless fries.its always very packed when i go to redrobin and i spend my money thier more than anywhere because they are generous.coke and other company's could learn from redrobins business model imo.

I have seen this from time to time so I now take a quick look at the bottom of the case just to be sure the code is still there.

Yes, I would definitely complain to the manager, and bring back the case if necessary to prove it . . . they probably have stripped all the other Dasani cases of codes as well.
