How Beer = Free Meat or Furniture…

Home Projects, I Love Upstate

The age old question…how does beer = meat & chairs. Yes, I pondered that in my philosophy courses for minutes on end. Then it hit me. Eureka. Budweiser and Coors are the answer to meat & chairs. No. No. No. I have not gone COMPLETELY looney. So let us say that you are NOT a beer drinker or at least NOT a Budweiser or Coors beer drinker. No worries. In many states it is illegal for the beer companies to run a promotional campaign that requires a beer purchase. This is key.

When you are in the grocery store take a quick spin down the beer aisle. If you see a promotional display with a tearpad – check it out. It is typically an offer for FREE meat or FREE furniture or FREE ice or FREE chips. Tell me this information would not have dramatically changed your college experience? LOL

So here is a picture of a current rebate that is out. It is from Coors. If you are in the market for lawn furniture and you purchase more than $199 worth of said lawn furniture and you live in the listed states…they will mail you a check for $50.

You might be thinking “I do not have time for rebate forms”. It takes 2 minutes and you get $50 back. That means you think your time is worth more than $1500 per hour. Wow. Can I have your job?

Most of the time the rebates are for something like “buy $30 worth of meat and get $15 back”. You do NOT have to buy all the meat at the same time. Save your grocery receipts. Remember that tuna fish is meat, etc.

Typically you can only do one rebate per household. I do my rebate and then if I have leftover receipts, etc. I surprise my Aunt who is on a fixed income with little bonus checks. She gets a kick out of the mystery checks that show up in her mailbox.

You can go to Check My Rebate to search for current promotions, requirements and/or to download forms. CLICK HERE.

States that are very beer rebate friendly and do NOT require a beer purchase per state law:

AL, AR, CT, HI, KY, ME, MO, NC, NJ, NY, SD, UT, VA, VT, and WV

Next time we’ll talk WINE…

    “check back for upcoming promotions”

    Why don’t they have any decent beer/wine rebates in Texas? Can you figure that one out for me please?

    Hey, you know those buy $100 of merchandise at “so-and-so clothing store” and get $15 off coupons, do you think those would work with the ‘save your receipts’ thing too? I never spend that much money on clothes at one place at one time. Do you think they would give me a hard time if the purchases were two or three weeks apart?

    Not sure, call the corporate office to confirm their policy. The worst they will say is “no”.
