Morning Money Matters: Cash in on Coke

January 7, 2009; News 12 This Morning

Something you're already doing could get you free stuff, like magazine subscriptions. It could also enter you into drawings for airline miles or gift cards.

Anyone who knows me knows I cannot live without diet soda. I'm a little embarrassed about how dependent I am on caffeine. Anyway, this Morning Money Matters comes from our director, Lisa. She's five shades of red right now that I called her out by name, but I guess she's willing to take one for the team to tell you how she gets "In Style," "Glamour," and "Harper's Bazaar" for free. So, what does this have to do with caffeine?

Well, she gets all of these through "My Coke Rewards." Here's how it works: you get a code through any Coca Cola product you buy, from fridge packs to those plastic bottles you buy in convenience stores. Go to and type in your numbers. Those numbers will give you points, and you use your points to buy things like magazine subscriptions.

So, if you already buy Coke products, why not get something for free?

Oh, and remember. Recycle your Coke cans. You can get 25 cents a pound for them. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
