My husband is a huge fan of diet coke. Now of course I know that diet coke is not the most frugal beverage of choice. I know that I should probably encourage him to drink more water and less diet coke, but hey we all have to live a little. Most of the time my husband buys diet coke from Costco, but I often find better prices at places like Giant and CVS, so I’ve started buying coke there whenever I find a really good sale.
The added perk of buying from Giant and CVS is that each twelve pack box contains a special code that can be entered on mycokerewards. Each code is worth 10 points and you can claim rewards for as little as 15 points. For 80 points you can cash in your points for magazine subscriptions to Redbook or Cosmo Girl. For 100 points you can subscribe to Good Housekeeping or Wired. As your point totals rise so do your options for redemption including hats, t-shirts, and additional magazine subscriptions. For 120 points you can subscribe to House Beautiful, Marie Claire, Smart Money, etc.
I cashed in 200 points for a subscription to O, the Oprah magazine. I looked on www.magazinepricesearch.com and found prices for this subscription ranging from $18 to $28. I think magazine subscriptions are a great reward. (Of course, I’m a magazine fanatic.) Considering the fact that my husband is going to drink diet coke regardless of the reward, I think it’s great to be rewarded with a year long subscription.
