Kool-Aid Points Discontinued, Can Still Be Redeemed

April 29, 2008 · 322 comments

Well, as they promised last year, you’ll no longer find those little Kool-Aid Kool Points on their packages anymore: Kraft Foods confirmed with me this morning that they have discontinued their Kool-Aid Points program. You can still cash in your points while supplies last. The prizes are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.

Update, 5/09: By popular demand, Kool-Aid will allow you to redeem any accumulated points using this form, until June 30, 2010! They also say the 800-367-9225 is still the number to call if you have questions or concerns.

This news makes me sad. I collected points as a kid and cashed them in for, among other things, a really neat Kool-Aid Stand. My dad used it to teach me about supply and demand, “cost of goods sold,” and marketing (I earned lots of dimes that summer)…which sparked an interest in economics that led me to pursue a degree in it and eventually a master’s in business administration. So in a way, I am who I am because of Kool-Aid Points! Oh, yeahhhh! ;)

While I never collected kool-aid points I very much enjoyed your childhood memory. Boy, I can relate, lol! Maybe if more parents spent more time teaching their kids the connection between hard work and rewards this country would be in better shape. Thank you for sharing – I really enjoy your reviews and tidbits. :)

I too have 1000′s of points!!! Too bad!! Hey….. Just thinking. What if we all put our points together and ask them if they will still take them and ask if they can donate the gifts to a children’s hospital?? That would give them some good advertising, and we all would feel a whole lot better about our points!!! Just thinking!!!

joan johnson December 18, 2012 at 10:02 am

I have points too and have been following this thread. Is this where I reply with the amount I have?

Martin Barnes October 18, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Hi Chelsey. Well I have just got off the phone with Kraft Foods about the points and they are going to put the idea of them taking all the points we can put together (as a one time deal) and then donate the gifts to a Children’s Hospital. They told me that they will put it to there Public Relations team and will get back to me!!! So we should “all” hold on to your points. When they get back to me, I will post on this wall!!!

My mother just found a bag full of points. We have 1868 points. If Kraft decides to do something with these points to help some children I will send these in.

Dawn Long November 4, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Did you hear anything back regarding the Kool-aid points? I have a shoe box full of points.

Thanks,

Dawn

Megan Arceneaux November 6, 2012 at 11:22 am

I have a lot of Kool-Aid points as well, not sure exactly how many though. I would love to donate them to a Children’s Hospital if Kraft Foods will go ahead with ya’lls idea.

joan johnson November 9, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Martin-
I don’t have the 1000′s that some people have but the ones I have I’d like to put to good use. Please let us know if Kraft has decided to do the right thing, and donate to a good cause.

Martin Barnes December 17, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Hi all, Well Kraft foods have just give me a call to say that they will take the points off us as a one time thing, so I need to get the total number of points for them. If you want to donate your points just give me an email and I will send you the address to send them to, all you need to do is put a note in with them when you mail them to say how many points there is. That way I just need to add them up to get a total and if you put your email address is with them, I will send you an email to say I have got them. Thanks to all that will donate!!! Martin.

Olivia Humphreys December 22, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Hi! I have 595 points that just discovered in my pantry that I would love to donate towards things to give to a children’s hospital. I was disappointed to find out that this points system had ended years ago but I’m glad someone took the initative to find something good to do with them. What is your address where I can send these? My e-mail is oliviajhumphreys@gmail.com.

Tracy Family December 30, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Hi! I am excited that Kraft will do something with our collective points!! You say to send to your email address in another thread, however there is no “reply” attached to that comment and you have overlooked the posting of the email address. There are many of us who would like to respond and donate points but don’t have your email address and , can’t find it anywhere in this thread.
Please send me/post your email address so we can connect with you for the giving of Kool-aid points.
Thanks, Lisa in Seattle

doc no spam,please May 15, 2008 at 9:47 pm

We’ve been collecting points for years and bought quite a few items, latest was a kool-aid towel and t-shirt for each of us.
This is an American tradition and it’s a shame to see it ending.
Zippo still repairs lighters for no charge, Victorinox will fix your Swiss Army knife for free, Mag Industries will repair your MagLite at no charge, and the Coca-Cola company kept Coke Classic in response to customer’s wishes. The Kool-Aid company is no less an American icon, yet they are letting us down this way.
When Coca-Cola refused to deny licensing to its bottlers in Central America who are murdering labor activists, we stopped patronising them, even though Coke is our favorite cola.
I think that unless Kool-Aid shares their reasons for this action with us, we’re going to boycott them, too.
If it’s because of lack of participation, maybe better items would have helped. We always wanted to see GLASS Kool-Aid pitchers and tumblers for one thing.

anita January 7, 2014 at 2:45 am

ditto, it is like an icon, the care of them to allow us to patronize their product and earn points to get silly stuff we adored, and now our kids don’t look to kool-aide as they have no reason, afterall flavor side is just as tasty on most flavors i think, except maybe purple, a little weak, but hey it is like no in God we trust on the money we make now, what the hey if we cannot stand by our people kraft, why buy your product? to be let down by the dyes you use possibly, well it makes a person think when you just take the only things we get by buying your product, now what? are u just one of the generic kind of drinks? i say bring back the icon, and stand up for our family, are we not a family KRAFT, it felt like we were, now, it makes me remember the saying, the ones who hurt you worst, are the ones closest to you, shame on you i know you have enough money, what the tax deducton wasn’t worth the production of small things, some of these people counted on kool_aide they knew to let them save to get a few nice things, unbought with money, so i say, America, if kraft doesn’t take these, i am sorely wrong on my thoughts of KRAFT, shame on you! :(

Hasbro did the exact same thing with My Little Pony points. One day the point system is there for everyone to enjoy and the next it is gone. Canada used to share in the Kool-aid point system and I remember some of the neighbor hood kids would go around checking other peoples recycling for points they had thrown away. I wish Kool-aid had better things to offer for those who are “big kids” at heart.

My family has been saving points forever! I have all these points saved up in hopes to redeem them for something more than a “spider ring” and was further shocked that I had to use a search window to find anything out about the points program! This is such a shame. It was a family tradition that was still simple and I thought would last and last. I am highly dissapointed.

I have called the number provided in the blog entry and requested an order form to redeem my points. The woman on the phone told me that points can still be redeemed for a while and there are still lots of prizes left. So, anyone out there who has points better call now. There’s not much time left. I only have a little over 500 points, but I have been saving them for about 3 years now. I am dissapointed that this is happening. I am lucky that I picked now to stop procrastinating and look into cashing in, since all the work I have spent saving those little peices of paper would have been for nothing! My kids aren’t going to be too thrilled when they hear its over! Oh well, atleast we still have box tops for education! I hope…maybe I should check up on that as well!

OK I UNDERSTAND THAT WE CAN NO LONGER REDEEM KOOL-AID POINTS, BUT IF THIS PROGRAM IS DISCONTINUED THEN WHY IS IT WHEN I GO TO THE STORES NOW I CAN STILL GET KOOL-AID WITH POINTS ON IT? ARE THOSE KOOL-AIDS IM BUYING NOW OLD AND SHOULDNT BE ON THE SHELF AT THE STORES. I HAD JUST BOUGHT KOOL-AID POPS 2 DAYS AGO A 24 PACK. THERE WAS A POINTS CODE ON THE BOX WORTH 5 POINTS. NOW IM SCARED TO EAT THESE POPCYCLES ARE THEY OLD OR NOT. IF THESE POINTS ARE DONE THEN THEY SHOULD STOP PUTTING THEM ON KOOL-AID STUFF.

I was so sad today when we checked the mail to have my pkg of points returned to me, no forwarding address for Kool-Aid. My daughter was upset, we two have spend alot of time counting and cutting the points and stashing the away for the big day. Which came 7 wks ago when I first sent the pkg, much to my dismay I only now have three days to do something about it. It will take a few weeks for a catalog to get to me so that something can be ordered. I sent 2991 points. Waiting for the day my children would be tall enough to get on all the rides @ Six Flags, I have never had enough to money to take my children anywhere like that. I waited and waited for the day just like my children. What a let down!! All most feel a bit betrayed here, this was something from my childhood that I passed on to my children, I’m hate to leave them with this thought. Something as wholesome as Kool-Aid is gone. Since I’ve seen at the kraft website that pionts can still be redeemed, I hope they will for some things related to Kool-Aid. I always wanted the pitcher, spoon and cups. And I’ve been told several times I make the best Kool-Aid ever, just the right amount of sugar, and the way I mix the flavors it’s scrumptious. Please lets find a way not to forget my youth or to disapoint my children. Thanks for your time

Tears…,tears…,tears… Today my mom went to go check the mail hoping that our kool-aid prizes had came in. Yet, instead of are prizes we got what we have sent to get are prizes our kool-aid points and the money order that we put in there. She was thinking to not show me or tell me that they sent back are points. And we did not get any prizes. But she knew that I was going to ask about them and she did not want to lie to me so she told me when I asked about them. When she told me that they sent the points back that we have been saving forever and hopeing when we send in all of those points that we would get six flages tickets I was very disapointed I went to my room and just sat there and thought to myself for a long while, thinking man if we would have got are prizes today we would be going to six flages but no they had to send are points that we have been saving for ever right back to us Man!! I’m MAD.I know that we have to find the new address but, I am afraid that when we send them I am going to be disapointed again but when we get the new address, if we do I am hoping I will not be disapointed, again.
well thanks for reading this comment and I hope I get what I want and that is the six flags tickets for me and my brothers and mom and dad, or whatever we can get Thanks:)

That’s sort of funny. I’m pretty young (compared to others on this fourm), and bought a kool aid packet today, one that had a kool aid point on it. I thought this would be fun for my little sister and I to do, so I looked into it and found this fourm. Sort of depressing…

I’ve just finished counting all of our points this morning. I even got mad at my husband for throwing away some of my stacks of points. I keep them in bundles of 500 points each, and only have 3000 points left. I can’t believe that all of the collecting that me and both of my daughters did for all these years is just a waste. My daughters are so hurt that they vow never to drink Kool-Aid again. And there she goes. Josie just poured the Kool-Aid down the drain.
My name is Josie and I’m not going to drink Kool-Aide no more. The Kool-Aid man is just a big dumb, fat, ugly man.
My name is Annie and I’m mad too. That big fat ugly Kool-Aide man can keep all his stupid Kool-Aide.
Well, I guess my daughters said it all. We are no longer going to buy Kool-Aid. They now want to try the Disney brand. It is cheaper in price, but I’ve never purchased it before. I guess we’ll let you all know on its taste.

I just called Kraft and they are going to mail me a catalog so I can redeem points that I too had collected for years. She said there are just a few items still available like the kool aid packet holder, beech towel, smile t-shirt and pitcher.

Reply

Joni Clouse June 30, 2008 at 5:39 pm

Wow! Just what I wanted… a packet holder to clutter up my cabinets! It’s very ironic! I should have seen this coming! I am 33 years old. As a child I saved kool-aid points. My family and I were saving them for just the right thing. When I had my first child my mother gave to me the remaining points, around 2000, to enjoy with my child. The year that kool-aid discontinued their six flag’s ticket promotion (10 years?) was the year I had finally saved enough points and my daughters were old enough to enjoy the trip. After seeing the promotion had been discontinued, I wrote to Kraft asking when they expected to add other more extensive prizes to the catalog. I was assured it would be soon; keep looking and saving! Here we are 10 years (?) later… I look a couple of times a year, we still save (I have 7000+ points), what did they add? Nothing. Thanks Kool-aid man! I believe this teaches all of us something. The loyalty felt by consumers is definitely not returned by the brands we cherish! So rather than teaching my kids (10 & 13) about kool-aid stands and customer satisfaction, Kraft has taught them about how to make a buck by short changing kids (& their parents). Lesson taken and will be rewarded in kind – hello Lipton Iced Tea, Gatorade, & Tropicana!

well i am shocked –outraged even… i called them – ordered the catalog, and left the comment that i am very disappointed in kraft that they would cancel an institution like that — i told them i have been collecting kool-aid points since *i* was a kid… shameful… they stated it was due to consumer interest decrease – but the other poster is right — i wanted glass jugs… and a few more prize options.. plus takes a while to save up points if you dont have kids ;) (husband can only drink so much kool-aid)… argh i have packs with point on them – gonna have to drink a lot of kool-aid..not buying it any more though…

I, too, have been saving for years… i finally decided yesterday to get online and see what i can order. I was going to surprise my 7 year-old son with a package of fun stuff from kool aid. Good thing I didn’t tell him about it. I was born in 70, so I grew up drinking kool iad – it was cheap and good. That was the big thing in the summer… getting the catalog and ordering cool stuff. It is depressing. Just another ruined tradition. Thanks kool aid ! ! !

WOW, I have been saving for years as well. Every now and then I get online to see what nice things I can redeem my points for, I have not yet to get anything because the items were always not available. Today I get online to redeem the points, and I am saddened by the dincontinued points. If ya’ll stopped doing this last year, why do ya’ll still have points on the kool-aid. That is false advertisement. Thanks, Kool-aid.

My boyfreind and I have bein collecting these kool-aid points since we have bein together. Weve bein together for eight and a half years. Neither of us have ever put so much dedication in saving anything like we have these points. We boh smoke marlboro’s but still do not collect marlboro miles. I beleive anyone that puts so much support into a company should not be just blown off as if they didnt contribute or mean anything threw the years.

I don’t even know how many points we have. My brother and I have been collecting points for as long as I can remember. I just got the okay from him last week to get the points collected at our mom’s house to get my boys a kool-aid pitcher. I thought for sure that I might just have enough now to get one. They would go with the kool-aid cups that my brother and I had as kids. . .
As a side note, do people read before they post. There are quite a few postings of people who would like to know how to redeem points. At the top it tells you how and that you might not be able too. So read people, read.

I also have been saving points for years, a couple years ago they rumored that the end was near so we traded our points in for 10 beach towels. While cleaning out a room today, I found yet another evelope of 1,000 points. It saddens me that I will no longer be able to send for those cool kool-aid things for any grandchildren. I remember back in the early 60′s sending for a four colored color pencil with my points. I do beleive that may have been the begining of the points!

I have thousands of points and was waiting for something good to come out but it never did. Probably will eventually come back out with points and cool prizes and say you cant use the old points. Im dissapointed in you Kraft. Maybe you should read the comments on here and see its probably not a good idea to stop this and maybe you should put some better prizes to win. And just maybe your taking the fun out of things and maybe people will start buying the generic brands since your getting nothing now but the koolaid name….

I grew up collecting KoolAid points and GreenStamps. Thanks Kraft; for letting another tradition fade out. I guess it’s true…Business is just Business…
I guess I was ten the first time I sent off for a free KoolAid pitcher. When it arrived in the mail, I thought I was all grown up. I started my first savings account after that. The experience with the points made it all click in my brain.

Whitney Mindingall July 16, 2008 at 3:05 pm

I called the 800# above today to verify if the points needed had changed since I had last downloaded an order form, thay have not changed since last year. The lady I spoke with offered to mail me a form, so they are still accepting orders.
FYI: they have packet holders (20 pts + $1.75)
T-shirts- Lrg/in kids/adults (125 pts + $2)
Beach towel (350 pts + $4.45) and
Plastic pitcher (70 pts + $1.75).
You can order a limit of 5 of each item.

Just this evening I found out about the points! I have been collecting them for several years, just as others have stated. My son(21 now) and I started; we keep them in a plastic bag in the kitchen drawer. We intended to trade them in for a cool prize. Only now to hear “it’s over and done with”. What could be the reason behind it? The points are why I bought the drink mix! Also, we got a kick out of counting them. Once we were saving to trade them in for a gameboy but they were all gone. Just like no more points! I agree with the post note from: Billy, 7/14/08. We’re losing so many goodthings! I just bought 20 packets of kool-aid. To bad Kraft-no more points-no more kool-aid for us! Every point collector should stop buying kool-aid drink mix – it’s no longer “KOOL”!

Christine Upton July 22, 2008 at 4:11 pm

Why? Why, would you take something worth while away from kids? We love Kool-Aid and we enjoyed saving the points. Good home town values was taught by your points. With the world today being what it is, it’s just another disappointment to see something simple yet fun, with no harm, teaching a value taken away from children. Why can’t big companies just keep it simple. It added value to your product. Kool-Aid just isn’t as Kool anymore!

I have been collecting points ever since i was 5 and I am 20 now i have 1000S of these things all over my house and now i have saved them all up for nothing. we should be doing something to bring them back. We have all bought kool-aid for many many years and probably many to come but nothing makes me more excited to buy it than collecting the points. Both my boys were expecting something totally cool someday from kool-aid get stuff and now i have saved up all of these points for no damn reason. KOOL-AID YOU SUCK ASS FOR TAKING THE POINT SYSTEM AWAY AND I WILL NEVER BUY KOOL-AID AGAIN UNTILL YOU BRING BACK THE POINTS.

Melissa July 23, 2008 at 6:59 pm

I’m from Hastings, NE… the birth place of Kool-aid, so we have a huge connection to Kool-aid. We celebrate Kool-aid days every August, so at least I am able to buy Kool-aid “kollectables” but I’m still upset about the points thing. I can buy everything they are offering at Kool-aid days, so what is the point of me sending in my thousands of points? And for them to still make us pay shipping is ridiculous. They should just send the items. I’ll still drink kool-aid, just because of my loyalty for the one good thing Nebraska invented (and rarely gets credit for). It’s just sad that my 1 year old daughter and my baby on the way won’t know what points are… I know people in high school now that never knew that pop cans used to have printed codes in the bottom of the cans so you could win stuff. You actually had to drink it to find it. I’m only 26 and this is a sad day for me :( I’m going to forward the URL for this site on to the Kraft website so they see that they are breaking hearts everywhere…

I am so upset by this. As I have read many of the comments, I too have saved the points for years with my daughter. With the rise of cost of everything, I now will choose flavor aid. It is not as good, but it is cheaper, and if Kool Aid is going to quit the points program with virtually no advertising, I see no reason to spend the extra few dollars on it. I see hundreds of Kool aid commercials every week, am I the only one that missed the commercials that said they are going to quit the points program? I could have disappointed my daughter months ago, and freed up the space in my cabinet for Marlboro Miles.

Doreen M July 28, 2008 at 6:27 pm

just saw this last night when I was looking into redeeming for my kids. I have been collected since I was a kid, I have 2021 points. I called tonight and all that they have left is the kool aid pack holder, Kids large and small t-shirts, adult large t-shirt, plastic pitcher, and the smile beach towel. So I guess I can get 4 towels, 2 t-shirts, 2 pitchers and a packet holder! lol 20 years of collected – and a little disappointed to say the least. In the 20 years I never redeemed – as a kid the prizes were great but I never had enough points for the big ones. In recent years we never redeemed in hopes that the prizes would improve – that just never happened.

I’m so disappointed in not being able to redeem all my points. I cannot believe that Kraft did away with the program. Like most of the other people I have been saving for many years in hopes of some day getting something nice, and now I will probably get nothing!!!Good going Kraft, disappoint the little kid in alot of us and what a let down to not be able to have my grandson get his Kool Aid Stand. I wanted one for my daughter but never had enough points and now I was hoping to get one for my grandson. Disappointed!! Disappointed!!Kraft can do something to keep this neat collecting tradition going. Come on it can’t be because you’re not making money. The poeple sending comments are just a FEW of the collectors. Come on Kraft don’t disappoint us. Not you, all the delicious foods you provide for us, including KOOL AID.

So sad, So heart breaking! I have been collecting kool aid point’s for more than 23 year’s, in the hope’s that some day, I would have enough to redeem in my point’s. I have saved over 3,500 point’s. for the purpose of being able to give each of my four children, a Kool Aid Beach Towel and the Wacky Wild Kool Aid Clock. Soon to be blessed with my forth grandchild, I started thinking about redeeming through your catalog, only to find out that 23 year’s of saving has been waisted away. I want to know why you have done this and why now must I have to tell my children, “that are saving them also” that you no longer have have a catalog to redeem our point’s. Please contact me for the hope’s that there may be any item’s left over that I could redeem my point’s for. This is very heart breaking for me and my family after 23 year’s and more than 3,500 point’s later. Thank you, Sincerely, Pamla Baker

This is so SAD! I was cleaning out an old cupboard and discovered my children’s Kool-Aid points. Over the years we have collected hundreds of points and kept in the same container for years. I finally decided to redeem them for something for our family. Boy was I SHOCKED when I discovered that they no longer redeem them. I read that they only have some cheap stuff left…no thanks! I’ll just burn them at our next campfire, and remember how long we have carried that container from home to home over the years has our family grew.

I used to collect these in a jar with my mom, and I would always grab a copy of the latest prize flyer from the Kool-Aid dealy when we’d go shopping. I always loved seeing that you could get a Nintendo(!) for little pieces of paper if you patiently saved up enough of them… I’m 24 now, and that jar of little paper squares still sits on the kitchen shelf at my parents’ place. It makes me a little sad inside to know we’re no longer sitting on a jar of potential “treasure.”
Ah, well… guess I have no reason not to switch to the store brand drink flavor packets. Flavored sugar water will probably always be referred to as “a glass of Kool-Aid,” but I’ll know mine isn’t. =(

I LOVED Kool-Aid points! My daughter’s elementary school used to have drives to collect them from people who didn’t want to redeem them. Then they would buy stuff from the catalogs and give them out to students for Honor Roll and other prizes. Really neat. The best thing we ever ordered was the Game Boy- 2500 points and $1.75! We had every T-Shirt and other goodies! I think we may have a beanie. Yes, I will e-mail them and comment how my kids LOVED the Wacky Warehouse and loved collecting Kool-Aid points. Then again, since Kool-Aid is made in Mexico now…

I have several thousand points accumulated, and when I had just missed getting a gameboy they were offering for 1200 points sometime around the year 2000, I called to discuss this with Kraft and they ASSURED me that these points will “NEVER EXPIRE”. That means they need to make things right for those of us who have been faithful collectors. Given the fact that I doubt there are many of us multiple-thousand point collectors, they need to find something amazing and offer it up for those who have been good consumers of the Kool Aid product. It’d cost them next to nothing, and I imagine that they’d get a boat load of publicity for it. If they offered something like an iPod for 2000 or 3000 points, I sincerely doubt they’d have many people able to get it, and there would be no way for someone to collect the points over time.
Why don’t all of us with lots of points contact Kraft and really read them the riot act (politely), since making good for us oldtimeres has to be worth its weight in gold, publicity-wise.
Just a thought…

Wow. That sucks. I just found about 300 points that I had collected from when I was in college in the 90′s. They had this awesome YOSHI 8bit Nintendo game for something like 1000 points, so I’d go to the grocery store and rip the 25 points label off all of the big tubs. I got that Nintendo game in no time, and still have it. Maybe I’m the reason they stopped this program? If so, too bad you losers! They’re f*cking Kool-Aid points, not life support points! You’ll get over it. And maybe I’ll get a couple shirts with my 200 points I have left!

I think Kool Aid should be banned till they bring back the points,, I am sure it does not cost them anything to have prizes.. I am in marketing and most companies donate prizes for repete business. I have used kool aid points for promotions, got all the kool aid cups from the early days, I collected there gifts for the McDonald House Kids, and we all need to join together to let Kraft know that we do not agree with a tradition that has gone on since my Grandpa days..

There have been a few people looking for just enough points to get things they really wanted. If you need only a few points, like in the neighborhood of 5 to 25 or so, please feel free to email me at housemouse2@peoplepc.com. If you contact me via email, I’ll be happy to send you the points if you send me a SASE (to an address I’ll send you in private email). It’s clear I won’t be able to get anything great anymore, so all the better to help someone else get what they want.

What a shame, we have been collecting forever as well. Now we have only 4 items to choose from to cash them in. Maybe there are some old products stuck in a closet somewhere to give a better selection. Such a shame, one of the reasons we purchased the brand was due to the points, it helped offset the cost and gave us the feeling the company was giving something back. If there are any other items that can be purchased, please let us know. Still think it is a shame.

Why can’t the company bring back good old times and start the point system again. Life has gotten so technical,kids don’t have reasons to be kids anymoreKoolAid is a big part most childhood memories. Lets bring back the collecting and the good prizes.

Just a quick update. The form appears to have been moved to http://brands.kraftfoods.com/koolaid/KoolPointsForm.pdf I just spent a few frustrating minutes trying to find it at the address listed at the beginning of this site. Hope this helps.

I am very disturbed by this American icon, I was raised on Koolaid and my children were raised on it. I have saved points for almost twenty years to be able to get my all something from their point. I wanted to be able to get something nice for them and knew I needed to save a large amount to be able to do this. I wanted them to have a memory of their days playing outside with their friends and drinking Koolaid. Boy what a dissappointment to the sellection that
“Kraft Foods” hae left us with compared to what it used to be. Most Americans do not bother to save the points, but the ones that did must have been heart broken also.I think America needs to know what has happened to their childhood favorite.

Hi,
I just realized I still had these points laying around and wanted to cash them in. However, I only have 112 points – and I would like to get the t-shirt for my husband – who would love it. Does anyone have 13 points they don’t need and would possibly give to me? I will check the stores to see if any of the packages have any points but I seriously doubt they do. I wish they would allow you to buy extra points to make up the difference. Maybe I will email them to see if that is possible.
Anyhow – I would be really grateful if anyone could spare the 13 points I need. I would gladly send you an envelope or even a small fee for them. Please email me at emilysteng@yahoo.com
Thanks!

Anonymous? Really? Why was my comment rejected the first time when I refused to give my name and e-mail?
KOOL-AID…this sucks! I have over 1000 points! I have been waiting for Kool-Aid to come out with something awesome like the Six Flag Passes. I only needed a few more and when I went to redeem them they were out of passes. So I waited and they never did get something awesome like that again. I would check every once and a while through the 3 or 4 items they offered. All in all I will miss the Kool-Aid points. I redeemed them when I was a kid and my kids did it once and got fun stuff.
I guess the programs of collecting points and redeeming them for cool stuff is becoming a thing of the past…or is it? I predict that many years from now they will bring it back, for a limited time, and offer awesome merchandise. Simmer down to those of you who plan on keeping those points you’ve saved hoping that they will bring the program back or SOMETHING! The points will probably look the same but with some “authenicating holograph” leaving us out of the loop. I guess we’ll see what happens!

iam very disappointed about kool-aid points i remember when i was

brands. like i said i am very disappointed. look forward to seeing something from kool-aid in the near future.

My two year old recently found my stash of KoolAid points and I showed them to her and told her that we could look and find something fun to redeem them for. She’s two but totally understood redeeming these papers for cool things. I now go looking and discover there are no more points? Nice decision General Mills to discontinue the KoolAid points. I guess the bean counters have forgotten they were once kids too. Don’t worry, we’ll soon forget KoolAid too.

I cant belive this! I’ve been saving those damn things for 20 yrs. I came online to see what I can get for the thousands of points I saved. I wanted to buy something for my grandson. We all should stop drinking kool aid now. Maybe they will bring it back! Has anyone thought to ask Kraft to bring it back? Maybe if we all write them?
Iam soooo upset. I cant even throw them away. Should I still Keep em? anyone want them?

I don’t collect anymore, I never did manage to get the money for shipping so I never got to cash any points in, but I am a bit upset that the points will no longer be available, I think Kool-Aide was neat for the point system. This probably wasn’t a great idea for them to do, I mean, seriously, brand name food isn’t all that great anymore. I use Wylers most of the time because I get double the quantity and there’s no difference over Kool-Aide. So, in honesty, what is going to keep people from not buying kool-aide now?
If I ever buy kool-aide it’s only cause it’s on sale.

Wow. This is a shock. I too have just found out about the cancellation of the Kool Aid points. I redeemed points several years ago for an item and was quite happy with it. My daughter won a Kool Aid tent when she was young and got great use out of it. Just when I decide to go on the website and see what I can now redeem my points for — its gone. Maybe the program is not being used to the extent that Kraft envisioned it — where is the promotion?
Does Kool-Aid actually realize that people buy more of the product when we can collect and redeem points? This is a big marketing mistake and I’m sure Kool-Aid will see their sales decline as a result. Please bring back the point system… why stop a good thing?

I was dumb founded. That the point system was way over with. I am 49 yrs old and my kids 24,25, &30 now- use to save the points. We had to waite to send them in when we got enough for three items at a time. They loved geting mail. I now have a grandaughter and I also watch children in my home but, we never quit drinking kool-aid. It’s always in our frige.
And it will be. It seems like all the little extra perks from companies are fading away. What is happening to America? Are they making kool-aid over seas too. Now our kool-aid points are HISTORY.

Also very disappointed to see Koolaid points can’t be redeemed. We’ve been saving since our kids were little, hoping to redeem them on something fun. Doesn’t give me much incentive to continue buying koolaid vs. another less expensive store brand. What a shame to disappoint so many faithful customers out there.

I collected Kool-aid points with my children when they were little and redeemed them for really neat items. Even when they grew up we continued to collect points. Now I’m a grandmother and have hundreds, maybe even thousands, of kool-aid points and my grandson will never get to experience redeeming them, waiting for the mail to arrive and receiving his purchase. Wow Kraft, in my opinion, that was a terrible move. You’ve taken away something that could have been passed from generation to generation. Although you extended the redemption date, the overall response should have caused your company to re-think your decision to remove the points completely. I am EXTREMELY disappointed!!!

WHY THE HE** DIDN’T THEY POST THE NOTICE WHERE THE POINTS ARE ON THE PACKAGES AND THE BOXES FOR US TO SEE AND BE AWARE OF BEFORE IT WAS TOO LATE TO BENEFIT FROM OF SAVING OF THEM!!! I HAVE BOYCOTT THEM (KELOGG/KOOL-AID) SINCE THIS HAS COME OUT AND I WILL NOT PURCHASE ANY MORE ITEMS FROM THEM…THERE ARE TOO MANY SUPPLIERS THESE DAYS TO GIVE US A CHOICE AND I FEEL IF THEY WANTED TO STOP THEIR WACKY WAREHOUSE THEN THEY SHOULD HAVE PAID OUT $$$ FOR EACH POINT FOR OUR (WASTED) TIME AND ENERGY FOR SAVING THEM. I REALLY WISH THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING MORE THAT WE COULD DO AS CONSUMERS…DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS???

If anyone from Kool-aid is reading all these posts, maybe you’ll realize what a disappointment it is to many that the Kool-aid points system is gone. I’m packing to move after many years and found a large amount of points in a plastic bowl. I used to save them and cut them all out at once, just to rinse my hands when I was done to see what color they were stained. I have so many. Maybe if all of us with leftover, unusable, no longer any good points combined them we could start a revolution against Kool-aid and convince them how important it was to us as kids, our kids and Kool-aid’s future with their public. For once, listen to the people that made you what you are today!!!

I just woke up this morning and made a pitcher of Kool-aid. After I got through, I kept the pouch and turned on my computer to see if I could find out any information about the points program. I thought that it would be a Kool thing to introduce my daughter to, a remnent of my childhood. It is hard to put into words the disappointment and sadness that I am feeling at the moment. I read in these posts that Kraft claimed it was due to the lack of customer participation. I would hope that Kraft could come up with some way to improve the point collection and redemption process. It takes a while to build up points, so maybe Kraft could have super points inside some Kool-aid products. Kraft could also come up with Kooler and more modern products to be redeemed. If you want better customer participation, you should advertise the program and some of the prizes available. There are so many children channels, so it would be easy to get kids’ interest sparked by flashing them some Kool prizes and telling them how easy it is to earn points. Kraft should have also put the little Kool-aid points catalog back on store shelves next to their products. It has been years since I’ve seen one of those. Thanks for listening.

I am very sorry to hear about your agency discontinuing the kool aid points. I had forgotten about the ones I had. I had saved 3,091 for my grandchildren.

Oh no! This is so disappointing. I’ve been saving
Koolaid points for a lot of years. My kiddos are upset
about the change too. Thanks for a good, affordable
drink mix that kids have enjoyed for many years.

Why did they stop the points thing?

04/04/07 I tried to redeem these points and my package was sent back,
So, I decided to just leave them in the cabinet. Then, when I went back to
redeem them again, I’m still told that I can’t. Something is wrong with this!!!

I say it is pure B.S. This is Kraft Foods (Kool-Aid’s) Reward for brand loyalty and loyalty to their rewards program? I say Let’s BOYCOTT Kool Aid all-together if not the entire line of Kraft products (including the expensive Mac-n-Cheese. Flavor-Aid is just as tasty, just as much vitamin C and about 1/3 the cost per serving!

I saved Kool-aid points and got things for my kids. No I want to use the ones I still have for my grandchilldren and have no way to. It is a disappointment. I have at least 1000 points that have moved with me three times. Now my grandchildren are old enough to enjoy those products, I can’t get them.

Hi all, Well Kraft foods have just give me a call to say that they will take the points off us as a one time thing, so I need to get the total number of points for them. If you want to donate your points just give me an email and I will send you the address to send them to, all you need to do is put a note in with them when you mail them to say how many points there is. That way I just need to add them up to get a total and if you put your email address is with them, I will send you an email to say I have got them. Thanks to all that will donate!!! Martin.

I just ran across your thread ‘Kool-Aid Points Discontinued, Can Still Be Redeemed’.Are you still collecting points for the children’s hospital? Recently I was cleaning out the kitchen and I found a bag full of Kool-Aid points my kids used to save, I was going to throw them out but found your site and thought I would like to contribute to your cause. Please email me the address you would like me to send them to and in the meantime I have counted 1021. I also have tons of KRAFT points from mac n cheese boxes, Handi Snacks, etc… do these count as well since Kool aid is a KRAFT product? Let me know if you are interested in those points as well. Thank you
