Diet Coke reveals giveaway promotion

02 October, 2017

Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) has unveiled Diet Coke's latest on-pack promotion and stand-out limited edition designs, offering consumers the chance to win £5,000 every day to help retailers increase sales.

Packs of Diet Coke and Diet Coke Caffeine Free have been given beauty, fashion, music and travel graphics to appeal to the brand's predominantly female drinkers. 

The competition will run until 22 October 2017, encouraging consumers to buy the limited edition packs to be in in with a chance of winning £5,000 on a prepaid credit card to put towards a dream spending spree. It is designed to help retailers boost sales of Diet Coke, which is already worth almost half of the value (47%) of the total light cola sector (Nielsen, year to 17 May 2017). 

The promotion will appear on a range of formats, including 33cl cans and multipacks, and 1.75L and 50cl PET bottles, which will also be available in a PMP format. 

Consumers can be a part of the competition by entering a unique promotion code, found on every promotional pack, online throughout the six week period. 

The brand will receive further support from a marketing campaign that includes TV, digital and out-of-home advertising as well as an ongoing partnership with ambassador Holly Willoughby. 

Simon Harrison, operational marketing director GB at Coca-Cola European Partners, said: "The new campaign and limited edition packaging design will tap into the passion points of Diet Coke's loyal audience, delivering great stand out on shelf and rewarding winners with £5,000 to splash out on luxuries.

"The exciting prospect of winning will encourage both existing and new consumers to buy the much-loved soft drink brand, helping wholesalers and retailers maximise sales in the summer wind-down."
