Coke drinkers love them some Nintendo, it seems. The newest phase of the My Coke Rewards
customer loyalty program, which began on April 16, was sold out
of all available Nintendo merchandise by April 20, according to the deal-watchers on slickdeals.net
Yes, that means that at least a few people managed to redeem the 3250 reward points needed for a Nintendo DS
and the 6250 points for a Wii
in less than four days. For those keeping score at home, that translates to 1084 bottles of Coke for the DS or 2084 bottles for the Wii. In four days.
Are these people
buying drinks for Army battalions
Slower drinkers needn't worry, though -- the DS and Wii reappeared
on the rewards site yesterday afternoon, meaning that more people can pursue obesity
and tooth decay
as they pursue their Nintendo system of choice. God bless America.
