Through Sept. 8, consumers can enter Save A Lot contest to bring home the bacon.
Mmm, bacon. To mark International Bacon Day on Sept. 4, discount retailer Save A Lot announced a new sweepstakes awarding a year’s supply of the Farmington brand of bacon that it carries in its stores.
The contest is open now through Sept. 8. No purchase is necessary, and consumers can enter by visiting SaveALot.com/FreeBacon. The grand prize will be awarded next week, in the form of a $400 Save A Lot gift card that can be used to purchase ample amounts of bacon over the course of 12 months.
“What better way to end the summer than a sizzling offer of free bacon for one lucky customer,” declared Tim Schroder, the retailer’s SVP of marketing.
Having free bacon money means a little more in today’s market. Average retail bacon prices rose 19 cents in July to reach $6.86 a pound, the highest price for bacon on record, according to data from the Economic Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
