expired Free 200ml Can of Coke with Your NAME on It. Now Til End of Dec at Westfields

1160

Spotted this in Bondi Junction this last weekend, turns out Coke is giving out free 200ml cans with your name printed on it. You just line up and write the name you want on the form. Each Westfield is running this at different periods, so check the dates.

Some names like "Sam" apparently are not allowed due to (copyright? lol) reasons.

1st post, don't need to go easy. I'll learn.

EDIT: If you can't find the Westfield Locations on the facebook page, look for the "CREATE A CUSTOM CAN" tab and click it on the top.

Also not sure if every Westfield is listed, but the list is quite comprehensive. Check it for your area.

        o.k. so the reason for this, is that you can copywrite your name. which essentially means nothing, until someone else tries to make money off your name, in which case, the copywrite comes into effect. so names like sam have often been copywrited like this in order to try and make claims against large companies like this for free money.

        therefore, they can put the name on the can if there is no clear money making reason, or traceable profits. but if they use it in a promotion, every can given away to a sam they can be sued for, even though the cans are free, repeat customers etc are the name of the game here.

        Coca Cola's Fun Police have been all over this one. The terms and conditions remove all the levity one could have had with this offer.

          Well I guess you could get one can with "John" and another with "Thomas"…

          @ greenpossum: It's a bit tricky given the font they're using, and the first letter being an upper case, but perhaps revert back to your primary school calculator tricks? "Zdood" will get you "boobZ" if you hold it up to the mirror. :-)

      Maybe beckhams version 'pepfi' might pass

      12 characters. They give you a card to fill out and then they print off a sticker which has the name on it and stick it onto the cans. Looks actually pretty good if they stick it one well!

    So do you get your name printed out on a can or bottle? The TV advertisement showed a bottle and so does the Facebook page, but it's mentioned as a 'can' on the Facebook page.

    Pity you can't get all uppercase. I would have tried for Clint. That always looks funny in uppercase from a distance.

  •  

    each time you line up, can you get two bottle? or do you have to line up again?

    anyone know?

    •  

      you'll be given only one card at a time though you can always line up again for seconds.

      got mine at westfield parramatta today (y)

        yeah they won't let you print more than 1 at a time. but yeah just line up again.. it was pretty quick tonight towards the end

        here's mine —> https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s720x72...

        the guy handing out the forms and checking the names said no disney characters.. i was originally gonna put just "Pumba" not "Pumbaa" (correct way).. but I asked the girl to try the double a and the machine didn't auto ban it :D

    You know what makes me shake my head about this promotion…

    Is I can just imagine all the marketing types going 'Damn…we've done all we can with coke…'

    Then going 'Hey…why don't we print different names on the labels…'

    But I've always wanted to share coke with charlie!

    Oh wow. Chermside was totally disorganised this morning. The workers started arriving at 10, divided the line into two, then realised that they actually needed one so they had to try to merge the two lines and people who were at the front of one line got pushed back.

    They didn't start anything until after 10.30…but I loved the "Oi, Jimmy. What're you doing?" from the angry mob.

      i reckon the organisers get confused with merging on freeways too..
