I found:

Coke
Coke Cherry Vanilla
Coke Zero
Diet Coke
Diet Coke Black Cherry Vanilla
Dr. Pepper
Diet Dr. Pepper
Sprite
Diet Sprite

I also used the coupons to buy 1.5 liters of Minute Maid lemonade and Fanta Orange soda a few times, and the cashiers didn't say anything about it.

I still have about 250 bottles to get before 8/31!!! :Pinkbounc

Also:

Seagram's Ginger Ale
Fresca
Barq's Root Beer and Cream Soda
Minute Maid Fruit Punch

I must say, whatever idiot at Coke decided to print the words "5 FREE" in light gray ink on a silver background needs to go back to art school.

I wasn't able to get Dr. Pepper at walmart. And those things are such a pain, someone has to call a manager almost every time I use them.

Yes, and this is why so many people are selling them on ebay. I was going to redeem one of mine last night at Wal-Mart, but they didn't have any selection besides the actual "coke" 2L, so I decided to go to the grocery store today. The tropical punch will be great for the kiddos.

AngieWin: I was able to get Dr Pepper by explaining to the cashier that Coke is the bottler for that brand in this area (Greater Boston) AND that the Dr Pepper was on the Coke end-cap display. On the other hand, I had no problem with the register reading the coupon correctly - I'd added my purchases in my head while waiting in line (and I'm not showing off - I didn't have all that much :))

I have been redeeming my coupons at Target and I must say that they are wonderful!!! The cashier just inputs the free bottles and there is no wait and it is very quick. I was worried when I read some of the horror stories here, but it has been very easy for me.

I have gotten:

Coke
Diet Coke
CF Diet Coke
Sprite
Lemonade

The only problem has been that Target doesn't always have the biggest selections, but that's fine. We usually drink coke & diet anyway.

Wher do you find these coupons at?

The coupons were winners from the Olympics game. You would put in a code which would give you an event. If the US medalled, you won a coupon for 5 free 2 liters. Bonus was that Coke gave you 3 free codes a day, so you could get many of these winners for no purchase and very little work

To those who asked, Coke ran a contest during the Olympics. Each time you won, which wasn't tough, you got a coupon for 5 free 2L bottles of any Coke product. Collectively, DIS members won something like 15,000 bottles if I remember correctly. I won 195 bottles myself.

DH was able to get Powerade a few times at our local grocery store. They were only 1.75 liter. Regrettably, they won't let us get them anymore because they aren't 2 liter and the coupone specifically says 2 liter.

I have only been able to get coke, diet coke and sprite. I hate those 1.5 litters lol

I am going to have to look in other stores to see if I can find a better 2 litter variety.

I've gotten: Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, Sprite Zero, Barqs, and Canada Dry. I've got to start using them all up before the coupons expire

I'm getting very frustrated using these coupons...every time I use one its a battle with the cashier, the check-out manager, the customer service manager, etc. One manager tried to tell me that the coupon was only worth the 1/100 cent (you know the "fine print" that is on every coupon that explains that the piece of paper itself is "worthless"...that was an interesting conversation, I told her to pull out every other coupon they received that day and they would see the same language...needless to say I left with no coke that day :sad2: )

Maybe I'll try Target since I haven't heard of too many issues with people using them there.

We've just picked up Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, and Minute Maid Lemonade.

We haven't run into too many problems with checking out. I usually tell the cashier when I hand over the coupon that most places are having a problem because scanning only takes 1 bottle off. So they know early they have to run it through manually. It seems most places have an option to just enter "manufacturer coupon" and the amount they need to take off (the cost of 5 bottles)

I've used the coupons at Target and Publix, with no problems. They either scan it 5 times or add up the total for five 2-liters and take off that one total.

So far I've gotten:
Sprite
Coke and any variation
Fanta
Barqs
Minute Maid lemonade
Nestea Iced Tea

No Dr Pepper--Pepsi is the bottler for that around here.

Isn't that the truth?!?!
As if it isn't hard enough to get the cashier to realize the coupon really is for FIVE 2 liters! Then they have to squint at it and I always feel like they think I printed the darn coupon myself!

Cheerbop. Dr Pepper is either depending on your area, and in a few areas it overlaps and is both :confused3

I've gotten Coke, CF Coke, Diet Coke, CF Diet Coke, Diet Dr. Pepper, CF Diet Dr. Pepper, Pink and yellow Minute Maid lemonaide, and orange and grape Fanta. Coke is the bottler for Dr. Pepper here. And yes, every time I've used one, the cashier has had to call a manager to help them.

The Dr. Pepper here says "a product of dr pepper bottling co" also...how do you know whether it's bottled by Pepsi or Coke??? The Dr Pepper is placed right between the Pepsi and Coke products in our local grocery store so that doesn't tell me anything either. We rarely drink Coke products since I'm a Pepsi drinker and DH drinks Mtn Dew but I would love to use my coupons for Dr Pepper!!

I called coca cola this afternoon. I called locally and a long distance number they gave me for inquireing minds want to know.

Dr. Pepper is NOT a coke product in the USA ,,,,, only in Canada,,
even if the the coke guy puts it up on the shelves ,,
Dr. Pepper is not bottled by them in the USA. THe coupons come from
the actual Coke company. THey have many subsituaries *can't spell that*.
So its good only on genuine Coke products ,, the ones "rparmfamily"
listed in her post as getting plus the sports drink "vault" ....

I could have checked out with Dr. Pepper today because the lady
didn't bother to pay attn. to what bottles I was buying, Darn,,
should have gotten all dr.pepper. Well I only got 5 bottles ,....

And yes,,, my cashier made me feel like I printed that coupon off
myself. She kept saying 5 bottles ,, really ,, good for 5 bottles
where did you get this ? 5 bottles ,, I just wanted to "ring" her right out
the front door.

But free is free and wellll chickie loves getting something for free ,,
I think we ought to post a "pic" link of cashiers looking our coupons
over ,,,,,,,,,,,, :crazy: :rotfl2:

We also have cashier issues even when we tell them it is for FIVE free bottles. However, local grocery is used to us now and have seen the coupon enough times that they know what to do. I usually only bring one or two coupons because I think they would freak if they knew we won over 100 2 liters of coke :blush:
Most often, we get the lemonade, iced tea, coke caffiene free, sprite, diet coke, fanta (orange), and nestea iced tea.

Barqs rootbeer is a coke product I just need to find it in a two liter. DH would jump for joy over mello yellow (very hard to find!)

DD8 made $15.00 selling Minute Maid Lemonade one day! :wave2:

I'll have to look for the 2-liter bottles of iced tea. I haven't seen those but I wasn't really looking either. I haven't had any problems with them at the grocery store.

So, has everyone gotten all of their coupons?

I was due to get 9 (I saved the winning emails too) and only received 4 to date. It just seems w/August expirations that they would've come by now. I was certain to check the envelopes carefully and I never got more than one in an envelope.

mjbaby
07-12-2006, 06:28 AM
I could have sworn that we should have gotten three but only received two. I didn't play regularly, though, and didn't keep track so I don't know for sure. Ah well, ten free bottles is better than none, right?!

Does anyone remember what sweepstakes we were entered into when we won the coupons? And did anyone win anything else?

I should have gotten 4 coupons ( i started playing late) and only got 1. Any idea on how to check the status?

LIFERBABE
07-12-2006, 12:19 PM
We won 95 bottles and used them for

Barq's
Fresca which I LOVVE never had it before the coupons but I will pay for it when our coupon supply runs out.
Mr. Pibb
Coke
Diet Coke
Sprite
Ginger Ale-I think it is Schweppes. It says bottled by Coke on the label.
Nestea
Minute Maid
Fanta

Sometimes they will let me use more than one, other times I have to break up my purchase. I have been piece-mealing them so I dont end up with a bunch of old flat soda.

I went and redeemed 1 coupon and publix and the lady kept staring at me and then looking at the coupon then me and then the coupon, then she put it in 5 times and I got my coke.

I found out about this one after it was over! To bad I could have used 3 or 4 of those coupons for the summer! Maybe they will do something like it again!
