January 1 - December 31, 2013 version
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 [mycokerewards.com] instant win game.
  • 100 Bonus Points for signing up for Southwest Airlline's Rapid Rewards program [eprize.com].
  • 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.
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 Chip, (formerly Allysa and Hank) feature on the MCR site
- When does the promotion end? The program will end on December 31, 2014, (but often has been renewed).

- 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."

- Inactivity

"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.

- Participating Products:
Barq's, Coke, Coke Zero, Dasani, Diet Coke, Fanta, Fresca, Mellow Yellow, Minute Maid, Powerade & Powerade Zero, Fuze, Pibb, Sprite, Seagram's.

- Point Values:
Check packaging for a MyCokeRewards Label! Not all Coke packages have the MCR logo, (i.e. 6-pack w/glass bottles).

All bottle cap codes, across all brands, are worth 3 points regardless of size of bottle.
  • 12 oz., 12.5 oz., 14 oz., 16 oz., .5 Liter, 20 oz., 24 oz., 32 oz., 1 Liter, 1.25 Liter, 1.5 Liter, 2 Liter, 2.5 Liter, 3 Liter, 50 oz caps = 3 points

- List of Accepted MCR Letter & Number Code Characters & Character Substition

There are 25 total characters, (letters or numbers only), that are accepted in 14-character MCR codes, (out of 36 available, A-Z, and 1-0). Five of the characters may also be input as substitutions for other similar-looking characters. Either upper- or lower-case letters are accepted. The available characters are:

Letters: B F H J K L M N P R T V W X (No C D E G* I O* Q S* U* Y Z)
Numbers: 4 5 6 7 9 0 (No 1 2 3 8*)

Note: 'A,' however, is accepted in 12-character codes only. 12-character codes are still being accepted.

* There are also five accepted substitute characters for similar-looking characters
  • B = 8
  • V = U
  • 5 = S
  • 6 = G
  • 0 = O (Zero, '0', is the officially accepted character according to MCR error messages; letter 'O' is the substitute.)

- When is the next Double Points Day or Bonus Points period?

Did anyone else notice that for the Squares Bowl you are entered for the big money prizes for all your picks? The other day I was only entered a few times for each even though I had most of the board filled.
Not I, great catch.

I wondered how they'd legally pull that off.

I'd like to pose this question to some of the knowledgeable veterans on the board -

Is it worth saving a supply of "used" caps for future text games? Main reason I ask is as many of you
know you can often use a cap you entered into MCR previously in a text game -- it won't give you
additional MCR points but will put you into the contest.

A few sub-questions:

- If you used a cap in a text game once is it then completely done?

- Are caps where some other promotion (e.g., right now Coke Zero with Squares and Coke "red"
caps with American Idol) runs completely used?

- Are Powerade and Minute Maid caps that are used ever worth saving for this purpose?
One reason I ask is I find them harder to clean up!

Thanks in advance.

I got the board filled with a few extras on the corners. Like I said before, if I get a box of crackers I'll be happy, but I'll accept some cash. LOL

So are we thinking that we will get notified during the game if we won? That would be alot of fun. If they do the drawing later and notify us later that would still be nice if we won but not as much fun.

On the squares bowl page, the is a "winners" tab. It says
Quote :
The winners are picked at the end of each quarter and posted here as soon as results are available.
Think you won? We email confirmation to all the winners* and a sweet prize appears in the redemption history of your My Coke Rewards account.
So looks like actually during the game. Unless there is some sort of glitch, which we all know has never happened before on MCR...shake head

Not as I read it. "as soon as results are available" to me means maybe tomorrow. You know, they have to be verified, counted, audited, counted again, etc, etc, etc.

ill try to answer as best i can. I save my caps now due to the texting games. I believe that once a cap is used on a texting game it is done forever. However im not 100% on that. As for powerade and minute maid, i save them because they have 2x points on them every so often.

I keep my used codes on an excel spreadsheet with a different tab for each color of cap. I note which game it has been used in. Sometimes they work on more than one game. After I enter the code the first time I just copy right before I hit enter and then paste that code onto my spreadsheet.

I have one square left to fill to have one of every square done.

Is anyone willing to PM me a Coke zero 3 point code in exchange for a Coke (red cap) code?

I don't think you can enter more than 10 squares per day, no matter whether you use the AMOE or caps or flaps. So you would only get 3 points and no square if you've done all your AMOEs today. I'm not 100% sure because I haven't tried it myself, but I think I'm correct on this.

That would not be cool. Being only 1 away stinks
