Before I forget another day, you can get over to Coke Rewards and get a coupon mailed to you for a free 20oz bottle of Coke Zero. It's part of their NASCAR campaign whereby if none of their drivers win the Coke Zero 400, everyone in America gets a free Coke Zero! (Or at least, that's how it turned out. Take that, Pepsi!) You can get your coupons from now until....Sunday, I think. They WILL want your address and a phone number.
