On December 8, 2020, I signed up for the Coca-Cola Insiders Club Membership via an email link from The Coca-Cola Company:
From: Coca-Cola Brands
Date: December 8, 2020
Subject: Available now: Coca Cola Insiders Club membership
|BECOME A COCA-COLA |
|Now’s your chance to join this exclusive club and try new, refreshing Coca-Cola beverages before they hit shelves nationwide – plus so much more! Sign up for yourself or give it as the perfect holiday gift, but don’t wait, because spots are filling up fast!|
Can I still sign up for the Coca-Cola Insiders Club?
No, apparently the three-month subscription for 2021 is sold out, but you can add your email to the waiting list for the next one.
Announcement on Website reads:
The Coca-Cola® Insiders Club Has Sold Out
We've filled every spot for this three-month run of the Insiders Club, but you can still join the waitlist for future spots.
How much did you pay for the Coca-Cola Insider's Club membership?
The cost was $45 + taxes, but I used the "save $10 off $50 purchase" Cokestore.com coupon and I added a pair of the diamond print flip-flops that was on sale for $7.99 when I checked out and paid the grand total of $49.05. In other words, I got the pair of flip-flops for free :)
Yes, on January 2, 2021, I received my first package. Inside the package were an insert and a 20-oz bottle of POWERADE® ULTRA Strawberry Lemonade.
The cardboard box measured 8.5" x 6.5" x 3" and was shipped from Carocon Display and Packaging, 1205 Trinity Street, Thomasville NC 27360.
The insert reads:
DEDICATION PAYS OFF
POWERADE wants to reward you for being one of the first to sign up for the Coca-Cola Insiders Club, so we're giving you this special bonus box ahead of your first official Insiders Club box in January. Enjoy more hydration, more electrolytes and zero sugar with new POWERADE ULTRA Strawberry Lemonade - the replenishing power of POWERADE with premium ingredients like creatine, BCAAs, B vitamins and 50% more ION4 electrolytes.
IT'S TIME TO PUSH YOUR HYDRATION AS YOU PUSH YOURSELF.
POWERADE ULTRA debut in January 2020 with three flavors in the line-up: Mixed Berry, White Cherry and Citrus Blast.
Strawberry Lemonade apparently is a new flavor of POWERADE ULTRA which has not yet hit the shelves since the Product Website does not show where it is sold.
When did your first month box arrive ?
I received an email on January 12 that my January #insidersclub box had shipped and the box contained three new products.

In addition, a smaller white box with red lettering that read "But Wait, There's More." The box contained a black fanny pack made from recycled PET bottle with "The Coca-Cola Co.
