View Full Version : Value of Coke Reward Points in a Trade

07-25-2011, 08:39:16 AM
When you are doing a trade and someone is going to send coke reward points, how do you calculate how many coke reward points to send for the value of the coupons in the trade?

I might base it on the value of the product - if it's a cap, maybe $1-2, a box would be more like $3-$4. (This would be equal to a coupon of the same value.)
Most of the time if they're included in a trade of mine, I just roughly calculate it. There really is no hard and fast rule, so it makes them a bit difficult.
Really as long as both parties are happy with the trade, that's what matters.

i trade stamps for coke points. My general rule is a 44c stamp for every 15 pts (so 3c/pt). I would go by what I would PAY cash for a cpn (like 10%ish), I figure it out that way. Say I'd pay 44c for whatever cpns are being offered to me, that would equal 15 coke pts. So I'd offer 15 coke pts.

I trade coke codes as bring worth 1c a point. Usually just trade coupons for coke codes though. Example 1 coupon worth $1=10 coke points

When trading for coke codes a cap is 3 points, when trading for q's, I usually trade 1 cap for $1 coupon, for a 12 pack it is 10 points, so I will trade for $3 in coupons. Hope that makes sense. It is all so confusing when you look at the different ways you can trade these things. Hope I helped!

FAQ: When trading Coke Reward points (http://www.hotcouponworld.com/forums/rules-guidelines-trading/223723-trading-faqs-please-start-here-most-trading-questions-answered-thread-6.html#post1712030)
From Bugface post in March 2009
When trading Coke Codes, keep in mind the value of the prizes you are redeeming the codes for. 24 Points gets you a free 20oz drink. 150 points gets you a $10 magazine subscription. So do not pay more for them than what you are redeeming them for. This is another item that members vary greatly on what they ask for in trade.

Although currently a Free 20 oz drink is 30 pts and magazines run from 133-400 pts.

I base it on 12 packs, that is what we buy from Coke,always in my house, with or without a sale / coupon. 240 pts = 1 12 pack coupon, which in my area on sale is approx $2.40

Makes it easy, 1 point means 1 cent for me to buy my 12 pack
10 points = 10 cents in my pocket

If you trade coupons for approx 10% of the value, then If I were sending $9 worth of coupons, I would ask for .90.

You can go from there, hope that helps.

I think it depends how much the person really buys coke items.

I try to trade 10% of the value of my q's and count the 3 point coke codes as $0.10 and add postage if I'm the one mailing the q's.

I have been trying to figure out how much to sell coke points for on Ebay--- I have A LOT and don't have the patience nor the desire to key them in... so how much should I put them on ebay for per point.... ?

Older posts on here have them for about 3 or 4 cents per point or 10 cents per bottle cap. Some of the posts above only count them as 1 cent per point. On the coke rewards website here's how many points you get by item:

Lids/caps on any size bottles = 3 points
12 pack cans box code = 10 points
15 pack cans box code = 15 points
24 pack cans box code = 20 points
.5 ltr 8 pack or 12 oz 8 pack = 24 points
12 oz 30 or 32 pack = 25 points

Redemption examples at my coke rewards right now are:
20 oz drink takes 30 points
12 pack cans takes 240 points
Magazine subscriptions start at 133 points (Family Circle, Traditional Home, Better Homes) and go up to 400 (Martha Stewart Living)

In my stores a 20 oz drink costs from $1.39 to $1.59 (plus tx) and we're extremely lucky if we can get 12 pack cans for $3.00 on sale.

I guess for trading purposes it all just depends on how much you agree on. For selling them on ebay, I would think it's just how bad you wanna get rid of them. If you don't want to key them in, then you'd probably need to take into consideration how much it would cost to stuff all the caps in a big bubble pack and mail them plus your ebay and paypal fees. You might even want to just offer them for sale in the classifieds on HCW. I know personally, I consider the worth more if I can just copy and paste from a list than if I need to read the codes and input them. :giggle2:

Maybe that'll help.

There are lots of people here (including me) who are always looking for Coke Points. Personally I cash them in for movie tickets. Keeps our movie budget down, lol.

At any rate, I tend to think of them as being worth 1-2 cents each. In the "old days" when people first started trading them here, people used to say, well, figure out the prize you would get from Coke, and take the value of that prize divided by the number of points to see what each one should be worth.

I usually offer .44 or one stamp for every 25 points you have. Using that math, each point is worth 1.76 cents. I once worked all the math out... that's the rate I'm comfortable with. Anything more and I'd actually end up paying more for the coke points than I would just going to buy the movie ticket at the box office. This way I still feel like I get a deal and hopefully so does the person who doesn't want their coke codes. Hope that helps.
