Over 50 million Americans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 over the last few months, and more than 90 million people have received at least one dose of it. And it turns out getting vaccinated comes with a ton of perks beyond just protecting yourself and the people around you from catching a serious case of COVID-19. All over the country, companies are offering rad incentives for people who can provide proof that they have been vaccinated. Here what’s being offered so far, so that you don’t miss out on any free or discounted stuff.
Free donuts. Of course, the biggest vaccination promotion so far has been Krispy Kreme, as the company announced it would be offering a free daily donut for the rest of the year to anyone who is fully vaccinated. That’s right, getting vaccinated could literally get you a free, delicious glazed donut for the rest of 2021. For now, Krispy Kreme is the only major food chain to be giving away free food for the vaccinated but plenty of local spots are offering great deals.
Restaurant discounts. Oak & Reel, a “seafood-forward Italian restaurant” in Detroit, is offering vaccinated patrons 50% off their meal. The Rumbleseat Bar & Grille in Chicopee, Massachusetts offering 20% off all food orders on Mondays for vaccinated customers.
And it’s not just food being given away.
Cheap-ass beer. If you’re vaccinated and in Cleveland, you could get a beer for literally 10 cents, as the Market Garden Brewery is offering ten-cent beers to the first 2,021 vaccinated visitors.
Free weed products! Meanwhile, the Mint Dispensary in Phoenix, Arizona is offering free edibles to vaccinated customers. The Greenhouse of Walled Lake, a marijuana dispensary in Michigan, will give you a pre-rolled joint until the end of the month if you’re vaccinated. Obviously, in all of these cases, you’ll need to be over 21 to qualify.
Free rides to and from vaccine centers. If you aren’t vaccinated yet, there are still certain perks for you, including Lyft and Uber offering free rides for people going to and coming from vaccination locations.
And free yogurt. Plus, Chobani is giving away free yogurt at certain vaccination sites. So if you are eligible, there is really no excuse for signing up for an appointment as soon as possible.
