Default New Royal Caribbean rewards coming to MyCokeRewards.com

First, a few months ago, www.mycokerewards.com offered several rewards for people to get with their MCR points. They offered the Unlimited Soda package for 7 day cruises, the 5 bottle wine and dine package, and the Ultimate Romance package. They didn't last very long and people complained that they couldn't save up enough points in time to get the reward they wanted. Hope those people have been continuing to enter their codes and build up the point values of their accounts because I was told that there will be new RCL rewards in March.

I recently got an email from:
Tim Mohler
Account Executive
Strategic Alliances & Promotions
Royal Caribbean International

Quote:
Thank you for redeeming the 5 bottle Diamond Wine and Dine Package through the My Coke Rewards program. ....
I wrote back:
Quote:
Thank you Tim

I'll be sure to bring a copy of this email along with a copy of the certificate on our cruise.

I'd also like to send my thanks for the other Royal Caribbean rewards offered on the MyCokeRewards promo. I sure hope there will be more in 2009 as the MCR promo has been extended yet again. The Royal Caribbean rewards were VERY popular with members of www.cruisecritic.com and many were quite disappointed that the rewards ran out before they could acquire enough points to redeem for the reward, especially the Unlimited Soda package card. If that reward was to return, I would suggest that there be a limit on the number cards each account could redeem to get so that people who really want to used them on a cruise have a better chance to get then. As it turned out, some people redeemed for many of the soda package card only to resell them on ebay.

Thanks again,
Bruce

Thanks for the info Bruce. We're looking at bringing some sort of rewards back in March, and will keep developing the inventory throughout the year. Definitely a good suggestion on limiting the number of bevg. card purchases. I thought they were, but it's hard to truly lock things down sometimes.
SO, if you want to get your RCL reward from MCR, be sure to keep entering your codes so you can get it as soon as it shows up on the MCR website.

Default Bruce, I got this e-mail last week.

Starting on February 16th, there's something refreshingly new at My Coke Rewards. The 10 code entries-per-day limit is gone. Now you can enter your codes when you want ó up to 120 points per week.*

This is actually a BUMMER! At 30 points/day, you could enter 210 points/week!!

Also, starting 2/17 we're going to keep all rewards under 2000 points to make sure that you get rewarded quickly and easily. But before the 2000+ point rewards go away, from 2/10-2/16 you'll be able to get some new, exclusive limited-time rewards for 2000 points and greater.

MAYBE.... They will put some of the Romance Packages out AGAIN!!

I just missed out on the points for last time, if they keep it the same I'll have enough!!

I doubt they would offer the Romance Package for less than 2000 points, but I hope they will offer it that "High Point Week" at the same 6000 they offered it for before.

Maybe they will offer the Coke Card and the Wine Package in March! I could use one with teenagers!

thanks for the update! it sucks, i can't redeem to get the soda cards because they only work on 7 day cruises. i hope they don't limit the number of days for the new rewards. i usually take 9 day cruises and it would be awesome to get it.

Bruce - Thanks for keeping us updated on the rewards. I've been saving points - hope I have enough for something good. I did get one of the coke cards last round but could have used a couple more.

Oh NO! Just last week I finally gave up waiting and spent my a bunch of points on two Snapfish books before there was nothing worth saving points for. Now I am down to 200 points, looks like I have some extra drinking to do.

We got 2 of the soda cards for our upcoming cruise. We got them just before they pulled them from coke rewards. They are for cruises of 7 days or less.

Glad to see RC will be back as a prize as I couldn't find anything else I wanted off the list.

Thanks for the information.

Thanks for the information.
to answer your question, "Only 2000 can be saved?", the answer is NO. You can save more than 2000 points. The 2000 point limit is for the maximum number of points a reward will cost. Starting Feb 16, no reward will be cost more than 2000 points.

The soda card, which was 400 points, was valid for cruises of 7 nights or fewer. I got two for our up coming cruise along with the wine and dine package (and LOTS of other rewards from MCR).
