Budweiser is joining others companies like Sam Adams and Krispy Kreme in treating people who have received their COVID-19 vaccines.
The brand is giving away beer money to people who get vaccinated so that their first round back at the bars is covered. Budweiser announced the incentive in a commercial featuring its iconic Clydesdales and a puppy. "We can't wait to see our buds," the company said in the ad: "But when we do, let's do it safely."
To help encourage more to get vaccinated, there's also a contest with 10,000 free beers up for grabs. Now through May 16, or while supplies last, U.S. residents 21 and older can enter the "Reunite with Buds" giveaway at ABeerOnBud.com with proof of vaccination.
However, there are some rules. Alabama, California and Texas residents are excluded from signing up, according to the fine print. Also, to enter for a chance to win a $5 virtual debit card that can be used to purchase one Budweiser beer, you need to be a new or existing My Cooler Rewards member.
