Fosters is currently offering a promotional belt buckle. When customers buy three cans, they get a “free belt buckle”. The campaign is limited to the United States of America and has been running for 6 months.
This looks like a standard campaign on the face of it. However once you turn to the terms and conditions you could be disappointed with this promotion. This is not quite a Gift with Purchase Promo – it is actually a relatively poor value Purchase with Purchase Promo since the brand is charging a high amount for shipping to absorb the cost of the gift. In the terms and conditions it clearly states:
“To redeem your Foster’s Belt Buckle (approximate retail value: $2.35)…send three (3) Foster’s Lager oil can tabs (blue tabs only) along with a $3.60 check or money order…”
If you would like to promote your business with promotional products, then you must follow this Golden Rule:
- Give products where the stated/perceived value of the gift is much higher than the Redemption cost.
