I am sure you’ve heard of My Coke Rewards. If you haven’t been updated on the situation, it’s important to note that the whole program has been revamped. On June 30th, 2017, My Coke Rewards bid farewell, and Coke moved onto bigger and better things. Coke ended up donating all of the unused MyCokeRewards points to charity. I wanted to share what is happening now with the new program and how you can take advantage of what Coke offers now.

Does My Coke Rewards Still Exist?

The answer is no. My Coke Rewards does not still exist. It was phased out in 2017, and a new program was introduced in its place.

If you’re looking for to use My Coke Rewards, you won’t be able to because it’s been retired.

If you do a quick search, you will still be able to find out information about it, but the product codes no longer work, and Coca Cola brands have moved to a new program.

When Did My Coke Rewards Phase Out?

June 30th, 2017 was the last day in which Cola brands and partners had anything to do with My Coke Rewards. Any points that were left over were donated to charity. Your chances to win were decreased, and you could no longer enter codes. The Cokes Rewards Program was ready for something different, and that is just what they did!

Can I Still Enter my Codes?

There were two different sides with the former My Coke Rewards. There were codes and points. When My Coke Rewards phased out, so did all of your points.

However, you can still enter the product codes in the new program. The Coca Cola Company Account decided to donate the unused points to charity.

If I had points with My Coke Rewards Where Did They Go?

As mentioned before, the previous Coke Rewards App was retired, and if you had any points to use up and didn’t use them, they are gone.

Coke donated all unused points to Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Junior Achievement® for charity.

Do I Need to Create a New Account for the new Coke Rewards Online?

You have probably discovered that an existing account on MCR.com no longer works since the website redirects you to Coke.com to take advantage of the new program by Coca Cola. According to Coca Cola, your MCR username and password is valid on the new rewards program

As you buy new Coca Cola products, you’ll be able to scan your new codes and get new rewards and other fun stuff!

Do the new My Coke Rewards Expire?

As of now, there is no talk of Sip & Scan Rewards expiring. However, if there is anything I’ve learned is that most reward programs don’t last forever as they often change to stay relevant.

Is It Worth It?

That is really an individual question. Some may think it is worth the time and love the rewards or being able to contribute to their school, while others may feel it is tedious, and a waste of time. I say give it a try and you’ll figure out pretty quickly where you stand.
