My Coke Rewards is the loyalty program from Coca Cola. You can collect My Coke Rewards Points (also known as MCR Points) and exchange them for a variety of rewards including sweepstakes entries, discounts on gas purchases, charitable donations, and products like subscriptions to magazines and online game sites, gift cards, sporting equipment, housewares, movie tickets, and more.

The My Coke Rewards program is a good way to stretch your budget, especially if you already purchase Coca Cola products. The few moments of time it takes to redeem the codes on your Coke purchases can be turned into big discounts you can really use, free stuff, or big prizes.

The available rewards change on a regular basis. See the My Coke Rewards website for a list of current MCR rewards.

How to Get My Coke Rewards Points with Purchase:

The primary way of getting My Coke Rewards Points is by using codes found on Coca Cola products. Just about any Coke product counts, including:

  • Coke
  • Diet Coke
  • Coke Zero
  • Sprite
  • Dasani Water
  • Powerade
  • Minute Maid
  • Barq's
  • Fresca
  • Seagram's Ginger Ale
  • and more.
The codes can be found under the cap of individual bottles, on the cardboard box of 12-packs of cans (in the refrigerator boxes, the codes can be found on the part you tear away to get to the soda), and on multi-pack wraps. See the My Coke Rewards website for a full list of participating brands and sizes.

How to Get My Coke Rewards Points for Free:

Aside from getting MCR Points with purchase, Coca Cola frequently offers free My Coke Rewards Points through various promotions. For tips about how to get them, read How to Get free MCR Points.

Promotions for free MCR Points change frequently. See the My Coke Rewards website for current promotional opportunities.

How to Redeem My Coke Rewards Codes:

Once you have a code, you can redeem it on the My Coke Rewards website, through Facebook, by text message, or through My Coke Rewards' mobile site. See the MCR Rewards Points Program Overview for details and links. Whichever method you choose to redeem your points, you'll need to sign up for a free MCR membership first.

Using My Coke Rewards Points to Enter Sweepstakes:

For sweepstakes fans, My Coke Rewards Points are a quick and easy way to enter the many giveaways that Coke offers through their rewards program. My Coke Rewards offers a wide variety of sweepstakes and instant-win giveaways at any given time. Without My Coke Rewards Points, you can only enter these sweepstakes my mail (many of the instant-win games also offer free codes through the alternate entry link in the rules).

Keeping Your My Coke Rewards Membership Active

While MCR points don't usually expire, you have to keep your account active or risk losing your points. To keep your account active, you need to add or use points at least once every 90 days. Make sure you keep your email account on file up-to-date, because you'll receive warnings by email when your account is close to becoming inactive.

What If I'm Not in the United States?

Coca Cola has loyalty programs in other countries as well. For example: If your country isn't listed, try an internet search for your local Coca Cola site to see if there's a rewards program that you can join.
