New Englanders, Miller Lite is Giving Away Free Beer on Saturday
*****UPDATE 2/28/20***** The giveaway has been canceled in light of the shooting at MolsonCoors.
It's a leap year and Leap Day is this Saturday. It's typically not celebrated as much of a holiday unless of course, it's your birthday, but thanks to Miller Lite, we all (well, those of us over 21) now have a big reason to celebrate.
Miller Lite is giving everyone a free case of beer! No joke, a complete 24-pack FOR FREE! As in, zero dollars.
One minor catch though, according to thrillist.com, you do have to pay for it upfront but they'll reimburse you via PayPal as long as you send them your receipt. Miller lite will post a QR code to their Instagram and Twitter pages on Leap Day for you to scan that will take you to the site you'll need to upload the receipt to.
Look, a rack ain't cheap. If all I have to do is send a receipt to enjoy free beer, I'm all about it.
Now I'll be honest here. I've never personally had Miller Lite, but for free, I'll drink just about anything.
It looks like Saturday should be a fairly decent day so get out and enjoy the extra day. After all, it only comes once every 4 years. Grab your free beer before or after one of these events:
