IDEAS That Work Practical pearls from your colleagues TURN SODAS INTO SUBSCRIPTIONS Free Magazines for Your Waiting Room We came up with a pretty ingenious way to keep our waiting room stocked with many of today’s most popular magazines. And it didn’t cost us a dime. We turned the cans of soda that we serve to our patients after their eye surgeries into free magazine subscriptions. Here’s how. We serve Coke products, like Coca-Cola, Diet Coke and Sprite, so we enrolled in Coke’s rewards programs (mycokerewards.com). It’s simple. You earn points when you enter the codes you’ll find under caps, inside the tear-off on 12-packs and on multi-pack wraps. Now our patients and their families get to enjoy the latest issues of Woman’s Day, Good Housekeeping and Martha Stewart Living rather than paging through outdated donated magazines.
