You may have heard the popular saying “there’s no such thing as a free lunch”. Which basically means that no one is going to give you anything (ie the lunch) for free. With tongue in check, I ask who needs lunch? Maybe all you want is a little desert!
If that desert is a bag of OREOs, then I would like to direct your attention to a nice little promotion the OREO cookie company is running. With just a little bit of luck, you can nab a totally free bag of OREOs.
OREOs is sponsoring a promotion right now called the OREO Cookie vs. Creme Text to Win Instant Win Game and Sweepstakes. Among the great prizes to be won are 12,500 coupons for a free bag of OREOs. With this coupon, you can redeem it any grocery store for a free 10.5 oz or larger package of OREO cookies (up to a maximum value of $4.49).
Okay, it’s not totally free – because you have to enter the promotion to win the coupon. But with 12,500 coupons up for grabs you’re chances are pretty good indeed.
Plus, there are oodles of other prizes to be won in this sweepstakes. The grand prize is $100,000! The other prizes are 3,750 iPod Shuffles and 8,750 $20 iTunes gift cards. You can win more than one prize so you just might find yourself rocking out to some tunes while you munch on your OREO cookies!
Entering is simple and fun – just go to the Oreo Cookie vs Cream Sweepstakes website, select your favorite OREO (Cookie or Creme), and play the instant win game. You can play the game twice per day. Hurry, though because the promotion ends March 22, 2013. You need to be a US resident over the age of 18 to enter.
So, now you know how to get a free bag of OREOs! (Or virtually free!) And who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?
I’ll leave you with some fun facts about OREOs courtesy of Kraft Foods:
-Oreos were invented in 1912, the same year the Titanic sunk
-50% of all OREO eaters pull apart their cookies before eating them, with women twisting them open more often than men
-Oreos have a street in New York City named after them called “Oreo Way” between 9th & 10th Avenue
-In China, a popular Oreo flavor is Oreo green tea ice cream – an Oreo cookie with green tea ice cream flavor creme
-In Indonesia, a popular Oreo flavor is Oreo blueberry ice cream – an Oreo filled with blueberry ice cream flavored creme
