Default Have unused MyCokeReward pts? Hugh & I can get troops stuff with them.

You know those MyCokeReward points codes you find under every Coca-Cola company soda product cap, on the inside of every box tear flap and under some flat cases for water and juices? You know, the one's you've probably just been throwing away?

Let Hugh and I turn these into free magazine subscriptions for the troops.

Basically - here's how it works:
  • PM me with the code(s), please do not post them publicly. It doesn't matter if you only have one code at that moment or 100, or their value.
  • I'll enter all the codes as they come in.
  • When I get enough points to order a subscription, I'll redeem them for a free subscription code.
  • I order the free subscription under Hugh's name with his address.
  • The magazines come right to Hugh and he packs them with the cigars into the troop boxes.
Simple!

Codes can be found on the following brands:
  • Coca-Cola
  • Coke Zero
  • Diet Coke
  • Sprite
  • DASANI
  • POWERADE
  • Minute Maid
  • Fanta
  • VAULT
  • Barq's
  • Fresca
  • Pibb
  • Mello Yello

Where to find codes:
  • Under caps
  • Inside tear-off on 12-pks.
  • On multi-pack wraps

All of the codes I've seen are 12 or 14 character, two or three line, dot-matrix printed.


Thanks in advance.

PS: If anyone would rather just mail the box flaps to me and I'll enter them, that's great too. Just PM me for my snailer.

Thanks Adam for organizing this! Thanks to all who will help out! A nice read to go with your cigar. What could be better?

How this all came about...

Awhile back Hugh ("hotreds") posted that he is always looking for magazines to send with the cigars to the troops, which kind of stuck in the back of my mind until the other day when it hit me that the Coca-Cola "MyCokeRewards" program has a number of magazines available as rewards.

So I talked to Hugh about if he would mind having some magazine subscriptions placed in his name and delivered directly to him and since he was all for it, I took all of my points (not many as I don't typically drink soda) plus a big stack of 12-pack codes from Ratters and redeemed them for a couple of magazine subscriptions.

Realizing that probably 70% of my codes were "scrounged" and Steve's (Ratters) codes were all lying in a pile of discarded soda boxes, I thought there might be some other S/BOTLs who were just ignoring / discarding these codes and that maybe I could combine all of these unwanted points and get Hugh some magazine subscriptions for the troops.

Is there a way to transfer any points I already have in my account to you, Adam?

Unfortunately no, there is no function for that in the program.

The only thing I can think of as a workaround for this would be that if you were willing to, I could forward some codes that I receive to you and when your account hits somewhere in the 130-180 points range for the subscriptions, you redeem the points for a subscription and fill it out in Hugh's name and address.

I know that kind of defeats the purpose of me making this as easy on everyone as possible, but at least it still pools the points for the subscriptions.

If you forward codes on to Vin, then it is transparent to everyone else. All codes still get sent to you. I think it all depends on how many points Vin already has. If he has, say, less than 50 it may not be worth it. But if he has over 100, it is certainly worthwhile.

Apparently I have a zero balance anyway .

My company goes through a whole bunch of 12 packs. I'm going to talk to the office manager about saving me the reward codes.

That is very true Peter. The last sentence of my post should have been written directly to Vin as it was intended. As for the code balances and when it becomes worthwhile, I agree and I already had numbers in my mind, but my plan was to save that discussion for PMs.

Vin, if you would like, you're more than welcome to just mail the box flaps to me and I'll enter all of the codes.

In fact, that offer is open to anyone who wishes to do it that way. Just PM me for an address.

Aside from Mexican Coke when you can find it, right?

Thanks for doing that Mario, I'm not really a big soda drinker either, maybe a powerade cap every now and then, but I try and scrounge codes when I can.
