Should I spend 1000 out of 1700 MyCokeReward points on a trip to Universal Studios Florida OR IOA?Universal Orlando: Similar prizes are two tickets to AMC and a 25 dollar nike gift card
From Timothy NguyenI have been a fatty and drinking up Coca-Colas products for 3 straight years accumulating MCR points. I now have enough for one ticket to IOA. However, it takes 1000 points out of my 1715 account not to mention I lived in Orlando for quite some time and owned an annual pass at one point I chose not to renew... I also bought a couple from a friend for a discounted price.... what should I do? Similar prizes are two tickets to AMC and a 25 dollar nike gift card, so in this case its a "steal" What should I do????

From Nick MarkhamAt first I thouht it wasn;t worth it, but compared with the other choices, definitely go with the ticket to IOA. Now with WWOHP, you have to see if you would have wished you reknewed that annual pass! ;)

From steve leeGood for you. We just threw a TON of Coke Rewards away because we realized we just weren't going to get motivated enough to enter the codes.

From Russell MeyerThey are charging 1,000 points for a day at Six Flags, so I'd say go for it! However, I've heard that My Coke Rewards (MCR) will start releasing higher point prizes in the coming months.

I've traded some MCR points for tickets to Dollywood and tickets to Carrowinds, and felt that they were worth the trade. Anything that equates to 2 center per point or greater is a good trade in. In this case, you're using 1,000 points to get about $75 of value, so that makes it 7.5 cents per point, which is an excellent value. You might want to hurry up, because good values like that don't stay up for long.
From Timothy Nguyenthanks, I did by the way redeem my points for it, so now I am back to 715 and climbing up the ladder again. THe main problem with MCR is that the higher-level pizes were

1. Hard to achieve
From Timothy NguyenBack then, Mardi Grais season usually gave you the cheapest annual passes of only 100 dollars. Now the price is upped to 129.99 year round, and until more new rides come out, I am choosing not to renew. Though, Sea World annual passes are pointless these days due to the decline in quality shows -_-.

From James TroyHey, I have MCR points and plan on doing the same. Were you able to print your ticket(s) or do you have to wait for delivery?

From Timothy NguyenYou have to receive it by mail, and they say that the package comes "2-4 weeks after order" but since I live close to Universal, so I got my package in 4 business days. It comes in a large, thin envelope. It was a painless transaction, so don't worry too much about paying shipping (its free) or when it comes etc. etc. .
