One of the things I do to make extra money is collect those codes found on the packages of Coke products. see image above
Once you have enough points, you can then redeem them for gift cards under the My Coke Rewards program. It might not be as good as old-fashioned cash, but it works for me.
I’ve been taking advantage of this for some time now.
As I sit here today I trying to remember when I first started this. Sadly, I don’t remember how long it’s been.
The two rewards I’m most interested in are the Amazon and iTunes gift cards.
Since I never kept track of how many points I’ve redeemed I’m just going to say that yes, it is possible to redeem your My Coke Rewards points for valuable gift cards.
Although the Amazon and iTunes gift cards are my favorite, there are also other ones available. I’ve seen Walmart gift cards, Nike gift cards, and others.
Once again, when I go looking for gift ideas, I like to see how I can acquire the item without any money out of my own pocket.
One way I do this is by redeeming My Coke Reward points for gift cards.
This won’t make you rich, but once again it’s not how much you make, but how much you keep in your pocket.
Here is where it gets interesting, say I get $10 Amazon gift card from My Coke Rewards.
Say I get another $5 from another rewards program. Do you see where this is headed. All this adds up!
As you can see in this image you can also enter sweepstakes for various prizes as well. And yes, I sometime enter these when the gift cards are not available.
Here is the idea I had when I started this.
My thinking was that if I can gather enough gift cards this would act as a “holiday fund, or gift fund.”
Remember I’m looking for any and all ways to keep money in my pocket.
If this means having to enter codes from Coke products, I’m ok with that.
In fact you’d be surprised how easy these are to come by.
One trick in getting more codes is it ask your friends and family. These are my two primary sources of codes.
In fact it is one of the gift ideas I tell my family. Instead of buying me more STUFF, I have them save up their codes and give these to me as a present.

My Coke Rewards Update 2017
Unfortunately, it appears the My Coke Rewards is changing this year. So we’ll have to wait and see what happens. I hope they still offer a way to acquire gifts cards.
