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.

Current MCR Bonus Points, (which do not count in the 120-point weekly limit)
  • 20 Bonus Points for a Family Dollar promotion Click here for posts.
  • 250 Bonus points for becoming aCostco member [121fulfillment.com] ($55). Online only.
  • 50 Bonus Points for Safeway grocery delivery account page, near the bottom not the regular safeway site account page. May not be available in all areas.

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."

National Geographic Channel - Ultimate Factories - Coca-Cola

Airing on NatGeoTV on Thursday 11-22-2012 at 4:00 or 5:00 AM - You will have to check your local listings.

It can also be seen Now at the National Geographic Site (Its 45 minutes long).
Click here to View:

http://channel.nationalgeographic...coca-cola/

It shows how Coca-Cola is made and bottled.
Just wait until you see the Boxes of Caps - They should send us all one of these boxes as a Birthday Gift, instead of just a E-Mail Greeting.

They also show you the Secret Formula - Just Kiddin on that one . . . .

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.
Captain D's is also good on B'days if you are signed up to thier fanclub they send you a email on your B'day for a free dinner 3 choices and on anniversary of when you signed up they send you a email for a free fish sandwich with drink purchase. Just print the email and give it to them they are supposed to look at your ID, but never have asked. Captain D's gift cards would also be a good reward for MCR to add.

*Edit to add they also give you up to 2 weeks to use the email.

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.
thats a good idea. i never really thought about others fishing them out of the recycling. i dont know why i never thought about that. i would so do it if i saw some lol.

I just noticed the scroller mentions unlocking the 12 Days of Holiday Rewards (Dec 1-12). Do you think this means the GCs are pushed back to Dec instead of Nov?

Everything points to December 1st as being the start of all the good Holiday Promotions. It says there will be a different one each day for the Twelve Days. At this time no one knows what they will be . . . .

P.S. It also previously said sneak previews will be announced on the MCR Facebook page.

But I think you should be happy you had them for as long as you did. Some of us can only dream of being as lucky as you were for so long.

I never said I wasn't happy that I got them for so long I said I was upset about them going behind back and taking them after I was nice enough to tell them about it. I chalked it up to a lesson learned and they won't ever be getting any help or freebie's from me anymore. Last year I sent them all polar bears, free shirts and free 12 packs and 20 oz those are long gone for them. Not to mention the other non MCR things I would get for them so for them it wasn't worth stabbing me in the back for the points but they don't realize that yet. And I know the little brat isn't entering all those codes in every week so there getting thrown away which makes me even more sick. vomit

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.
I agree

*Never mind about trading got 2 codes didn't realize cherry coke would work duh! And I got 18 points for a 24 pack?? What is going on with that??
.
My sob story is I would have had the codes but back in the summer I went to visit DH family and his father has coke machine and has been my main source for coke codes since this all started well he had surgery and my DH sister and her daughter had been doing the pop machines for him while he recovered. While I was there I went with them to do the pop machines and as we threw the emptys in the back I ripped off the codes and of course I got the "what are doing" so I explained the coke rewards to them and sadly his niece decided that she wanted in and I lost all of the coke points to her now. Frown
I was pretty upset about it and no its not fair but she is like 7 years old so what can you do? I think his father should split them up or something but that is not my call. He never even said anything about it to me he just stopped sending them to me so I know that is what is going on. Sorry for the long rant and PM me if you can trade I have all kinds of caps if you need a certain one.
Quote from penguinlover View Post :
Thanks, yeah it stinks when I even said his codes helped me out a lot, personally think his sister should have done something but what can I do? Last time I ever try to help someone out keep these things to yourself Wink
By the way anyone else only get 18 points for a 24 pack of pop? I did for a 24 pack of cherry coke I have always gotten 20 points for a 24 pack did they change it or is that a glitch? I contacted them but I won't hold my breath waiting to hear back! Still keep checking in for the holiday bonaza but today deal stinksZzZZz

Didn't say I wasn't happy I got them as long as I did was just saying it sucked to have lost them to a 7 year old who doesn't even enter them they now get thrown in the trash instead.

Just my two cents, but you sound so angry yet. Because you know the little girl and her family aren't entering the codes and they are getting thrown out, wouldn't it make sense for you to at least call DH's dad? You said he had surgery and you'd gone to help out; you could call to see how he's doing and in your conversation mention about the codes. Thank him again for all the years he sent them to you, and casually mention about missing the codes and while you know it's kind of him to "spread the wealth," sharing the codes with someone else now, that you know the codes are being wasted. What about offering to pay the postage for his mailing of the codes to you? (Maybe that is part of the reason he also stopping - saving money by giving them to someone he didn't have to mail to?) Jaime (lilrehm25) and I "lost" most of our sources in the last few years, so we do understand where you are coming from, but, we are still thankful for all the help we had over the years.

My local recycle center makes me remove the bottle caps from the bottles. Something about preventing the caps from flying off when the bottles are squished flat in their compactor.

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.
I think people that haven't used a code should write "OK" on the cap before they throw it away. LOL Bad enough entering the codes from 40 caps to need to worry about putting an "X" on the cap so someone doesn't buy a bag of used caps. You use White-Out to mark black caps?

There is a lot more to the story then I posted but trust me when I sayI was stabbed in the back and the whole thing was done dirty. The points are now being trashed and its done and over with. I have other issues with his family to get angry and stop helping them out so its not just this but this was the final straw for me and I am done with all of them. You know how it feels then to lose a source and I was very greatful for the years he shared them and he knew it trust me. Postage was not an issue and DH would not let me ask them about it he said his niece is already throwing them in the trash according to his sister and bored with it so his dad would start to send them to me again after she moved on to the next thing but I don't want them anymore and I don't want anything to do with his family.
