    Free "Beer" for Everyone on Feb 29th!

    Miller is giving everyone (in the US) a free 24 pack of Miller Lite (hence the quotes around Beer in the title) on Feb 29th to celebrate Leap Day. Apparently the only catch is that you have to first purchase the 24 and then submit for reimbursement. On Friday, you need to go to either Miller's Instagram or Twitter feed to scan a QR code which will take you to a site where you can upload a scanned copy of your receipt. It appears that you'll need a PayPal account to have the money deposited. I also imagine that your receipt needs to be dated 2/29.

    That's an awful lot of work for "beer"

      Agreed, though one thing I've learned here is that everyone has different tastes. Who am I to criticize someone who likes "beer"? :-)

      I don't think it's much work. Buy a case if beer, scan a qr code, fill out an online form. Easy.

    So their buying your info for 15 bucks? Can’t they just get it for free like FB and Google? Likely they’ll gain some customers too I guess.

      Seeing as the price for a 24 of Miller Lite bottles up here in the home of universal medicare is $42.95.
      Many will be jumping on this bandwagon.
      I don't do Instagram or Twitter either so I'm out unless one of the kids will get the refund for me.

        Meh. I have not purchased a Miller Light in at least 30 years. I've had one a couple of times, when it was the only thing available at someone's house or such. I used to go boating with a guy who loved it too. But, meh. Might as well drink water or iced tea, and I would probably enjoy them more!

        My wife is into Michelob Ultra right now, and had me buy her some "Bud Light Seltzer" the other day. I'll just keep drinking beers that have flavor and actually taste like beer... these days, I pretty much only drink beer I made myself (4 kegs on tap right now), or locally brewed craft beer wherever I go. If neither are available, I'll fall back to Anchor/Sierra Nevada or Sam Adams as a last resort at most restaurants.

          jfmorris I tried my hand at brewing a few years ago with another buddy. I really enjoyed it, but you're right, there's a lot of heavy lifting. We worked our way up to using old 15.5 gal. Budweiser kegs along with a pulley system to lift the damn things. It got to be a lot of work and there are a few local breweries that have popped up and their prices aren't much more than what we were spending on supplies, so we hung it up. I would start up again on my own, but I don't have the space.

          I still have my 5 gal setup, so maybe I will brew a batch or two this summer to get ready for fall and maybe Christmas.

          Craigar I took have a lot of local breweries and brew-pubs, several owned by friends. However, at $5 or $6 per pint, my cost of $20-40 per 5 gallon keg, depending on the recipe, is still at $0.50 to $1 per 16 ounce pint. I use a keggle for my main boil pot too, even when just doing 5 gallons versus 10, and a 60 quart cooler as a mash tun, but use gravity to drain, and recently acquired a brew pump that I plan to put to good use to avoid lifting more than a carboy into the fermentation fridge.

        I'm in for one.

          If something is "free", that means YOU are the product.

              Yeah, got the date correct in the body of the post, can't edit the title however. :-)

              On February 29, Miller Lite will post a QR code to its Instagram and Twitter accounts. You have to scan the code, so you'll need to use a computer or someone else's phone. The code will take you to a site where you can submit a receipt for a 24-pack of Miller Lite purchased on Leap Day. The cost of your case will be refunded to your PayPal account.

            I edited it to read Feb 29th instead of Friday .

            Easy work for free beer if you ask me.

              I'm a big proponent in free beer. Light isn't my fave, but free is. Nate

              If you're going to count calories, Guinness is my favorite light beer. I'm sure Mr. Bones would agree.

              I would be all in for that!

            I’ve read it’s only the first 5,000 people will get the free case.

              Not sure I'll sign up for a free case, but I definitely have and will be thinking of the people who work their. I'm originally from Milwaukee and have family and friends who work at Miller. That community is going through a really difficult time since yesterdays activities.

                Looks like they canceled the promotion.
