Some Budweiser products are being sold for free in some stores thanks to a new promotional rebate from the Anheuser-Busch company, following weeks of Bud Light backlash.

Ahead of the Memorial Day weekend, Bud Light revealed a new promotion called the US Budweiser Family Memorial Day Rebate online for customers from eligible states. The rebate promises an amount “equivalent to the purchase price of one (1) 15-pack or larger, up to $15” of Bud Light, Budweiser, Budweiser Select or Budweiser Select 55 paid via Anheuser-Busch Digital Prepaid Mastercard. Based on recent prices for Bud Light products, however, in some cases this would be giving packs of beer away for free.

Online searches of local beer retailers find many offers under $15 for 15-packs or larger of these Budweiser products, making the products free after rebate, excluding sales tax or any state restrictions.


A Nashua, New Hampshire supermarket was seen trying to sell a 30-pack of BudLight for 19.99, reduced from $24.99, making the price about $5 after the $15 rebate.

Twitter user Michael Haz shared photos from two Wisconsin stores, showing a 20-pack of BudLight on sale for $15, less a $15 rebate, for a total cost of ZERO.

A Texas Twitter user cheered, “Some Budweiser products are being sold for free in some stores thanks to a new promotional rebate from the Anheuser-Busch company, following weeks of Bud Light backlash. This boycott is forever!”

“FREE BUD FAMILY🤣 20 PACK BOTTLE 📉 They never pay premium price for #BudLight or #Budweiser again. Never. Ever. The reputation is ruined. The flagship is done🔥,” another Twitter user mocked.

Another Twitter user noted the boycotts are having an impact, tweeting, “Bud Light is undeniably going broke. The stuff is coming with $20 rebate coupons… on cases sold for $20. They can’t even give it away for free. Disney though, not “broke” but certainly not doing good lately. Shutting down a $2Bil hotel and crawling to break even on movies.”

“Bud Light’s Brand Is So Trashed It Can’t Even Give Beer Away For Free,” tweeted Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist.

“Seeing as how they apparently can’t give Bud Light away for free, I guess the next step will be to pay people to take it away?” Hemingway added.
