Getting your COVID-19 vaccine already feels like a treat, but to sweeten the deal, big-name brands are dishing out freebies to anyone who shows proof of the poke. Once you've gotten your shot, you can cash in on complimentary beer, doughnuts and more. Talk about a victory lap.
Take a look at the current roster of freebies that are available to vaccinated individuals across the U.S. And yes, we'll keep this list updated as more deals become available.
Budweiser: Your first post-vacc beer is on the house. Just head to ABeerOnBud.com, upload proof that you got your vaccine (a selfie with your sticker will do). Prizes are paid out as $5 virtual debit cards that can be used to buy a beer at your favorite bar. The giveaway is open now and ends on May 16 or when all the beer has been handed out, whichever comes first.
Krispy Kreme: Simply flash your vaccination card at any Krispy Kreme location across the U.S. for a gratis original glazed doughnut. No questions asked. The offer's good "anytime, any day, even every day—through the remainder of 2021." And get this: There's no limit to how many times you cash in.
Nathan's Hot Dogs: New Yorkers, this one's for you. Swing by the Coney Island location of this dog shop on the same day you get vaccinated for a free wiener.
Sam Adams: Share your vaccine selfie on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ShotForSam for the chance to score a $7 credit through Cash App to buy yourself an ice-cold Sam Adams (or, really, whatever you want). You'll want to act fast on this one—the giveaway lasts through May 15 or when 10,000 credits have been doled out, whichever comes first.
So Good So You: Now that you've got your shot, it's time to treat yourself to an immunity-boosting probiotic shot. Go to FreeJuiceShot.com to redeem a voucher for one 1.7-ounce cold-pressed juice at participating grocery stores.
Staples, Office Depot and OfficeMax: Alright, this one isn't a food freebie, but it might just be the most practical offer on the list. All three office-supply stores will laminate your vaccine card for free so that you don't spill beer or doughnut glaze on it. At Office Depot and OfficeMax, use code 52516714 through July 25; at Staples, use code 81540 through May 1.
White Castle: Ready for dessert? Swing by White Castle before May 31 for a complimentary dessert-on-a-stick. You can choose from flavors like gooey butter cake, fudge-dipped brownie or birthday cake. Just flash your vaccine card to cash in.
