Now, let me start by assuring you we are NOT suggesting you take up drinking
What we ARE suggesting, is that you look in unlikely places for great coupons! You may not think that some of the best coupons can be found between the Old Milwaukee and Budweiser…. but you’d be wrong! The beer aisle is one of the first places I head to in the grocery/drugstores/gas stations to check for tearpads. While most of them are rebates for buying beer (or a beer + food combo) – there are often regular coupons that say specifically “No Beer Purchase Required”.
Isn’t that awesome??
My favorite “beerpad” of the year so far is the Pabst Blue Ribbon tearpad. It is good for $1 off ANY fresh or frozen pizza priced at $1.99 or more. That can make for GREAT deals during a BOGO sale, or paired with deals like the Bi-Lo pizza meal deals we see so often.
Another tearpad I just found this week was at a gas station down the road. It is good for $.59 off Lance Peanuts (Which are exactly $.59) And although Miller is depicted all over the coupon – it simply says “Compliments of Miller Lite”. That means FREE PEANUTS!
I hope you start taking a closer look at the “Beerpads” in your neck of the woods!
NO Beer Purchase Required Rebates:
Super-Cool Fact: Most beer rebates require you to purchase a certain amount of alcohol in addition to meat, soda, snacks, etc… However, in some lucky states (AL, AR, CT, HI, KY, ME, MD, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OK, UT and WV) you are not required to purchase beer in order to get the rebate. The law prohibits it. Which means, you can buy the item – and NOT the alcholol – and get money back!
Example of a Beer Rebate in a “lucky state”:
Purchase Heineken 12-Pack + $7 worth of Deli Meat – Get a $5 Rebate.
You are a lucky duck, and were buying deli meat anyway
Send in the rebate and your meat receipt
= Super cheap deli meat for you!
There are folks that save TONS using these beer rebates, they even look for them on Ebay! Our friend Kristen is one of these savvy shoppers in a lucky state, and she suggests searching the term “Beer Rebates” to find them.
Let us know if you find any good ones in your beer aisle!
