Ways to get the Coke Code for iTunes downloads

I think it is really fascinating that Coca Cola is doing another major promotion in Europe teaming up once again with iTunes and giving away 2 billion songs on iTunes along with other goodies such as tickets to concerts and iPods for codes that can be found in Coca Cola bottles.

You had to use four codes to download one song from iTunes in the last promotion and the new one will surely use the system as well. It should be noted that only selected songs were available for download in the last promotion and that it is very likely that it is the same case during the new promotion.

We have several fridges at work that contain bottles of Coca Cola and Fanta which we can drink for free. I'm drinking about 2 bottles of Coca Cola Zero per day which means that I can get 8 codes which results in 2 iTunes songs per week. It is not that much and I thought of different ways to get new codes. I came up with two. The first one would be to buy the codes from sites such as eBay. I remember that many users sold a lot of codes on eBay for just a few bucks which would result in a nice bargain if you would have bought some of the songs available for the codes anyway.

You can buy 50 codes for $2 for instance which means that you can download 12 songs on iTunes for only $2. A cheaper method would be to visit a store that is selling Coke and ask them if you could take a look at the empty bottles and get the codes from them. Since many know about the promotion as well though, you may need to pay them some money as well to get your hands on the codes.

Can you think of more ways to get codes? Let me hear them.

Update: A marketplace like eBay is probably the best location to get a large amount of codes for a small amount of money. Even if you manage to get your hands on a source that is free, you may very well spend some time collecting the codes. Just paying a couple of Dollars for dozens of codes is probably worth it if you would take part in the promotion anyway.

It may take a day or a couple of days before codes are offered on eBay when a promotion starts though so check back regularly to find new offers on the site.

    figure out the algorithm used to generate the 15 digit alphanumeric codes…. and generate your own.

    can’t be that hard… the windows product key is… 26 characters, right?

    ;)

    What?!?!?!?!? Have you fallen off your nut or just the wagon. What a waste of time in the first place but what on earth are you talking about here?

    If these are the efforts being made by the cattle of Amerika to obtain free crap then we are all in a worse position than the Worst Case Scenario Generator (WCSG) has calculated. Not to mention that it makes no sense, common or otherwise.

    Why not just download songs from other places for free if you plan on doing illegal acts for getting songs anyway
