Here’s a fun promotion that’s timely considering it’s National Beer Day Wednesday: Get a COVID shot and get a free Samuel Adams beer.
The beer brand released a new national TV spot “Your Boston Cousin Gets Vaccinated ‘Wednesday’ To Help Fight Skepticism From Humor Drinkers,” and announced the #ShotForSam vaccine incentive program.
A few caveats: Free beer for COVID-19 vaccine offering begins April 12 – National Beer Day is held on April 7 each year – and goes to the top 10,000 drinkers who “share the evidence of their vaccination on social networks ”before May 15 or while stocks last.

A vaccine card or medical information is not required and the beer brand suggests posting an “I’m vaccinated” sticker or bandage photo with the hashtag #ShotForSam on Instagram or Twitter for a chance to receive $ 7 in cash through the Cash app to cover a Sam Adams of their choice at their favorite local bar or restaurant.
Winners will receive direct messages, says the beer brand. Learn more at www.samueladams.com/shotforsam and view terms and conditions here.

Krispy Kreme has her own vaccination incentive: Free frozen donuts until the end of 2021 with a valid COVID-19 vaccination card.
The freebie is valid at all 369 Krispy Kreme stores located in 41 states and available “anytime, any day, any day for the rest of the year,” said Dave Skena, chief marketing officer by Krispy Kreme, at USA TODAY. No purchase is necessary but consumers must show the vaccination record.
The promotion of free donuts has met with some backlash.
Some critics have cited the health effects of consuming a donut daily, especially during a pandemic that is more difficult for the obese. Others said the offer discriminated against people who did not want the vaccine. Krispy Kreme also has other offers that do not require proof of vaccination.
