Spring cleaning just got a bit more fun. If you’ve indulged in one too many online shopping frenzies during quarantine, and accumulated things you no longer want, Coors Light is willing to trade you free beer for your belongings.
On Saturday Mar. 20, Coors Light will be setting up shop at two locations– Lot S1 at The Battery in Atlanta and Lot G of Allegiant Stadium of Paradise, Nev. – where the brand will weigh your unwanted items and grant you the “weight equivalent” in rebates for up to two cases of Coors Light, according to an email press release. While the promotion is only available to residents of Georgia and Nevada, on the bright side, Coors Light is donating the items directly back to local charities in the two cities.
Coors Light isn’t taking just any junk, however. The purpose of the project is to gift the less fortunate the things you don’t particularly need. “People bought a whole bunch of stuff to help them chill out throughout the pandemic,” said Marcelo Pascoa, vice president of marketing at Molson Coors. “[A] year later, you don’t need a bunch of stuff to chill.”
While you’re free to donate clothes, household items, and undamaged furniture, Coors Light has composed a list of items that are particularly helpful, including PPE products, sanitizers, non-perishable food items, and toiletries such as paper towels and toilet paper. Atlanta is specifically in need of men’s T-shirts and hygiene products, and Las Vegas has requested cases of water.
Donations from 10 to 20 pounds will qualify for a maximum $10 rebate that can be traded for a 12-pack of brews. Those from 10 to 20 pounds are eligible for a maximum $25 rebate, which is enough to score a 30-pack. If you give 30 pounds or more, you’ll be given a $50 rebate, equal to two 30-packs.
Whatever the case (pun intended), you’re getting beer in exchange for your unwanted items, so it seems like a win-win.
