The contest ended around March 15, so no codes are available.

Brittany, I would email them. They are usually prompt and helpful.

Lisa: Did Target have to run the coupon through 5 times for you to get credit for all the Cokes?

That may be easier than getting them with a load of groceries.

I used one coupon today and got a teenaged boy cashier who could actually figure stuff out. He read the coupon, said the coupon is for five bottles, and multiplied the cost of one bottle times five on a piece of paper. Then he told me that will be $6.95 off, and deducted that amount. Doesn't happen often.
Where does anyone live where Nestea 2-liters are availabl? I've not seen them in Indiana. Would love to have them.

I haven't seen Nestea in 2-liters at my usual store....will try Albertsons or Walmart. They may have it. Target does not have Nestea in 2 liters, either.

I hate to do coupons at Target....The cashiers (all of them) always seem to miss at least one of my coupons...Then, I have to go to Customer Service to get the money for those they missed counting!

A lot of hassle for $1....

If I get my free cokes there, I will make it a separate purchase from anything else....just do the Cokes!

Yesterday when I went shopping I took with all my freebie coupons. I always make sure and do these as a separate transaction. (Had $43.00 worth of free groceries/products from them)

I'm finding that the Coke coupons give me the most trouble to use. Have to make sure they ring up 5 free and not 1...the Jewel/Osco store which is the large grocery chain in the Chicago area refuses to scan them properly so it screws up their register and they have to always get an over-ride done on it...which means the supervisor has to come over and approve the transaction. What I DON'T like is when they look at me or make a comment as if I'm making the coupons in my basement or I'm the only one that has ever had a large amount of free coupons. They've never seen most of the freebie coupons, especially the Coke ones.

Marie, you and I must shop at the same Jewel. My poor husband took 6 Coke coupons with him and they almost accused him of having a printing press. Of course they had to call the manager because of the large amount of money involved (30 bottles X $1.49). I am floating away because of all this coke. I won 31 coupons, but since my husband and I are pop-a-holics this is great.

Yes, they all seem to have never seen one. I know the two stores I shop have because I have redeemed about 30 of them so far. They still have to get overrides sometimes and some still deduct only 1 Coke, but they are learning.

Marie...I like your idea of doing your Freebie shopping as a separate transaction. I don't usually use many coupons at one time, but, went through them today, and have about a dozen Freebies!

I think I'll make a special trip to use them all at once!

I'll bet the cashiers hate you, don't they?

$43 in free coupons-you rock Marie!

A few of my grocery stores have had promotions where you buy 4 liters and get one free, so when I hand over the coke coupon they take off the price of 5 2 liters plus the computer has already deducted for one of the two liters. Turns out I get paid over $1 to take my free coke home.

Here in the Fort Lauderdale area, Publix had the 2 liter Nestea. When I first started receiving coupons, I brought home 20 of them.

Since than, they have not been available. I asked the store manager, whom I'm friendly with, to order me some. He has since advised me that Coke is "reformulating" the Nestea, and it is not being produced.

Bummer, since I do not drink much cola products, and the Nestea was OK and a good choice for the hurricane pantry since it's palatable at room temperature.

Anyway, that's the info I received about the Nestea.

Guess that's why I haven't been able to find Nestea in the 2-liters.

Does anyone happen to have the email address for Coke? I try to go to the website to find it but my computer keeps kicking me off it. Thanks.

I got my coupons in the mail a few weeks ago. Free is the best you can get with COKE.

I'd suggest you telephone the toll free number you should find on a bottle label or package.

I enjoyed this topic a lot. I managed to earn 45 free 2 liters during the March promotion, and have accumulated over 1400 points in the mycokerewards promotion, but sadly all my free DIET coke is gone. Has anyone heard if coke will be or is doing something similar to this anytime in the future?

Fowler130 how did you get 1400 pts? I am a coke-a-holic and can't get that many. I won 155 bottles so we are still drinking it.

There are seven of us and we are all diet coke- a- holics. We have almost 1200 still. I spent over 200 on those blockbuster movie packages.
BUT, we average 25- 35 points a day. My average monthly soda bill is almost as large as my truck payment. KIDDING but not by much.

Oh, my, Fowler....Do you worry about what all that Diet Coke is doing to your stomach?

I've pretty much cut out all the Diet drinks, and, am trying real hard to cut down on the regular sodas...Diet 7-UP was my favorite!

There are 7 of us so that's about 4 cans each (more for me) so while that's bad it's only a little more than an extra large soda at a fast food restaurant. I am working on slowing down the amount we drink but with the heat it's hard not to cool down with lots of diet coke.
