It all started with a bottle of Dasani and a dull Civil Procedure class.
We were talking about work product and I was sitting there reading my spring water bottle. Hey, it said, look under the cap and text the code you find there to
"2653". Start saving for rewards!
Ok, I thought, I like rewards. I texted it in. "Congratulations!" It said.
I had three points!
Now go online and register! Start saving for rewards!
Ok, I thought. I popped over to register and took a quick look at the available rewards. There was a bitchin' designer purse for several thousand points. (CC has a weakness for designer purses.)
But the next time I had a coke product, I texted in the code. And when my housemate had a 24 pack, I asked her for the code. (That one was 10.)
A few weeks later I have 60 points.
And I can't pass a recycling bin without looking. I eye the diet coke bottle in my boss' hand, wondering if she would mind if I asked for the cap.
I'm becoming sort of weird about it.
So today, I decided to google "My Coke Rewards promotional codes" to see if they were giving away extra codes somewhere on the internet.
I got a promotional code worth a few points out of it, but I also got a disturbing revelation.
My Coke Rewards people are crazy.
There are passionate blog posts on the subject.
Message boards with hundreds of postings.
Over 100 ebay sales
Wow. I had no idea.
Sigh. I don't want to become one of those people. My habit will remain a casual thing.
At the same time, if anybody has a 24 pack of a coke product lying around...
