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 a Costco 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."

I did win a pair of speakers back in May-never received them. Is anyone else still waiting for the speakers?

Finally disembarked from the Merry Minutes Loser Cruise, picking up a coupon for the $0.99 bottle (six to eight weeks from Tuesday).

Thanks Orbitcoke for the reindeer reference!

On Christmas Eve, I went to TJ's for some PJs, and I gotta say I skipped the sleepwear and went Christmas shopping instead! It's great. Half-price stuff everywhere. I got my niece a fine, heavy Twins hoodie for $25, and it was marked at $50 before it was halfsies at TJ's. What a pleasure to find some reasonably-priced professional sports memorabilia! laugh out loud All paid for by My Coke Rewards.

It's an MCR miracle!

My other niece went to Walmart and tried to buy a $25 Itunes gift card with the $25 Walmart MCR gift card, and no dice, you can't buy a gift card with a gift card. I don't suppose the world's largest retailer now has its own online music store, where one might use a Walmart gift card to purchase Walmart music?

What's the chance of buying something and returning it to get your cash? Will they just give you another gift card if you paid with a gift card?

Not true. I've purchased WM gift cards using WM gift cards (both ecards and physical cards). Maybe it's just certain gift cards that you can't buy using a WM GC.

It usually says on the receipt what you used to pay for the item (cash, CC, GC) and they'll usually give your money back in the same form. If you return without a receipt, you usually will just get store credit

Have you tried buying a Itunes card online at Walmart.com?

Thanks for all the replies . . . this is 2nd hand, but she couldn't purchase the Itunes with the walmart gift card . . . the register wouldn't accept the card as payment. I don't know if a supervisor was asked or anything like that. Trying to purchase it online at a pc in the store, and then setting it for in-store pickup is a good idea.

But my point was I can see Walmart having restrictions on purchases of other gift cards with a Walmart gift card, I mean, I don't like it, but I can see it. Like, Walmart wants you to spend their gift cards in store on their goods. But Walmart does not compete with Itunes!

You can buy ANY gift cards listed on Walmart.com with a Walmart gift card.
I bought 2 Visa Cards, 2 Subway and an iTunes for Christmas gift giving that way.

Amazon doesn't let you buy gift cards with an Amazon gift card either. Which is kind of a bummer because I would like to be able to combine my Amazon GCs from GPT programs and turn them into Marriott cards.

Glad it worked, but kind of surprising that Best Buy lets you buy an Amazon gift card with their gift card.

Its because the Amazon card sold in stores are advertised as credit for Kindle Books and they don't know its just a regular gift card.
