So, a few years ago, I started entering the My Coke Rewards codes. I might drink one 20 oz bottle a day, but coworkers started leaving their caps on my desk, and slowly the points started adding up. I linked my MCR account to an email address I use for stuff like that, so that I don't get all the promotional emails in my regular email.... bad idea, because I just checked it and saw this:

Ed, only 3 days to save your points and get a rebate
Act before 3/9/2011 to save and earn points.
You have 2297 points | Enter some codes | Sign into your account

If you don't redeem points or enter a code your points will expire 3/9/2011.
I didn't realize that codes expires after 90 days of account inactivity...
Yep, I've lost them all :redface:... there goes my chance to get -

Ultra Spa Terry Velour Robe,
Avis One Day Mid-Size Vehicle Rental,
6-pc Stoneware Gourmet Mixing Bowl Set,
$50 Nike E-Gift Card Code (that would have been nice...)
4-in-1 Digital Binocular Camera.

At least you freely admit it. That's a sign of acceptance and one of the 12 steps in the healing and recovery process.


BTW, that stoneware mixing bowl set sounds enticing!

For the time you spent typing in those codes, the prizes are not even worth it.

That's a misnomer because it implies that the prizes actually have some value to begin with!

Yeah, but running around a PolkFest in an "Ultra Spa Terry Velour Robe" could unseat some of the prior fashion statements that have been made :biggrin:

I figured out that all those points probably represent at least $1100 of Coke products... I didn't drink all of them, but maybe I need to drop this habit, or at least find a more efficient way of purchasing it than via the vending machine at work, which is now up to $1.60 for a 20 oz...

We use ours for magazine subscriptions.

They don't have a great selection but the but Wired can be fun and there is no freaking way I would have paid to have "O" magazine sent to my house.
