My Coke Rewards Program

Many people drink coke products, few people take advantage of My Coke Rewards. If you are not taking advantage, go to and sign up. Every time you buy a 12 or 24 pack (or various other single serve items)- log on and enter your code (code is on the end of the box or under the cap). Points add up quickly and you can spend them on entering sweepstakes or obtaining merchandise. I get many magazines subscriptions for free using my reward points, and recently was offered 50 FREE 4 x 6 photos from Snapfish through My Coke Rewards and wasn't even required to use my points to obtain them. If you drink Coke products, you need to check it out.
