Thread DetailsLast Edited by jimmy5 December 31, 2013 at 06:01 PM
Welcome to the official SD My Coke Rewards Discussion Thread, proud to talk MCR since 2006!
(We often discuss Coke promotions, (texting games, sweepstakes, etc.), which use MCR membership info to signup, or offer MCR points as prizes.)
Current MCR Bonus Points, (which do not count in the 120-point weekly limit)
- 10 Bonus Points are prizes in the MCR Merry Minutes of Winning instant win game.
- 100 Bonus Points for signing up for Southwest Airlline's Rapid Rewards program .
- Double Points on caps by purchasing beverages at Kangaroo Express and entering the keyword "kangaroo" and then the MCR cap code. Limit 2 Double cap Points per member, per day. Valid July 1 - Dec. 31, 2013.
- How may I contact them?
- Phone: 1-866-674-2653 anytime 9am-7pm EST Monday through Friday to reach an agent directly
- email address: email@example.com
- Ask Chip, (formerly Allysa and Hank) feature on the MCR site
- Codes with 12 characters are still be accepted; (still working as of Dec. 30, 2013.)
- Weekly Point Limits, Invalids & Start and End of Weeks:
Change: The weekly point limit is changing from 120 points per week, (ppw) to 100 ppw, effective Jan. 13, 2014. 120 ppw will continue until the end of the "Coke week" at 11:59:59 Jan. 12, 2014.
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.
Change: There is a weekly limit of 10,000 ppw.
From the 2014 rules:
"The current phase of the Program begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET") on January 1, 2014 and is scheduled to end at 11:59 p.m. ET on December 31, 2014 (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, 2014 until 11:59 p.m. ET on November 30, 2014 (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."
"If a Member's Account has remained inactive for a period of 90 days or more, the Member will forfeit any points remaining in the Account, without compensation. Failure to either credit points to an Account or redeem points from an Account constitutes inactivity for purposes of this condition."
This means keep adding codes to your balance. Or redeem an award which costs 0 points. If you account has been inactive and points have been forfeited, send an e-mail to Coke and ask for them to please restore your points. Members have often had their points returned.

TIP: Enter Your Caps Faster
[DISCLAIMER: This might work for me simply because of my browser (Firefox) and/or certain combinations of add-ons, so it might not work for everyone.]
When you enter a code on the MCR site, I'm pretty convinced that the codes are pre-programmed with the number of points you will receive for it. So after you type you code (or copy/paste) and press Enter, don't bother clicking the bottle to select the flavor it came from--and (at least for me) you don't have to click that black X. Just type or paste the next code over the last one, press Enter, and keep repeating.
You won't see your points total increase until you do select a flavor but if you enter 10 codes, for example, and click a flavor only for the 10th code, you'll see them increase 30 points all at once.
~ Be sure you press Enter after each code, otherwise you obviously won't get credited for it.
~ Keep an eye out for the error box to show up. It's easier to miss than you might think when you're using this method.
~ As I'm sure some would point out, there's always the option of using the MCR widget (which doesn't ask you about flavors at all), but this is the next best thing if you're not excited about having to install Yahoo! Widgets just to use it.
Identifying Coke products
You may want to know what type of drink a particular MCR flap came from. If, for example, MCR has another selective point-doubling day (in fall 2007, there was a week when Minute Maid and Nestea codes doubled), it would be handy to know if some of the flaps you have saved up are the right type. With that in mind, I made a few notes on the fridge-pack circle-and-bottle logos which are currently in use:
Red circle, white bottle: All Coke products (Coke, Diet Coke, Caffeine Free Coke, Coke Zero & etc.) and Barqs
Dark green circle, white bottle: Sprite
Green circle, white bottle: Vault, Fanta
Lime green circle, white bottle: Vault Zero
Medium blue circle, white bottle: Nestea
Dark blue circle, white bottle: Fresca
White circle, black bottle: Minute Maid
Red (Regular/"Enter Code"): Coke brands
Red ("Get Rewarded"): Coca Cola Classic, Caffeine Free Coke Classic
Blue (Dark): Sprite and Fanta brands
Blue (Light/Turquoise): Dasani Flavors, Diet Coke Plus
Green (Light): Minute Maid, Nestea
Green (Dark): Sprite, Sprite Zero, Fanta Orange, and Fanta Orange Zero
Grey: Diet Coke, Pibb, Barq's, Fresca, Vault
Black (Small): Coke Zero, Pibb, Barq's, Fresca, Minute Maid, Dasani Flavors, Vault
Black (Big #1): Powerade
Black (Big #2): Minute Maid
The red caps with a red bottle in a white circle come up with only Classic Coke and CF Classic Coke (or unknown) as flavor options.
The red caps with a white bottle (only; no white circle) give you the options for cherry coke and diet flavors like diet with lime and so on.
Perhaps saving some of these red caps w/o a white circle may be benefitial in the future.

Able to enter other codes, but getting this error with one particular code.
I figured out the issue with the code and this information may help others out in the future.
There was a space at the start of the code, which resulted in the error above. [MichCamper]
