It’s time for that huge event that only comes around every four years: the Olympics. The Olympic games are known for bringing the world together, if only for a few days. But it’s not just the gymnastics or swimming that will have you cheering. While athletes are going for the gold, you can go for the deals brought to you from these fine Olympic sponsors.
You can bet those golden arches will be plastered all over Beijing. In honor of the Olympics, McDonald’s is doing a special promotion of their Southern Style Chicken sandwich. According to a company press release, they’ll be offering a free Southern Style Chicken Biscuit or Sandwich with purchase. You’ll need an e-coupon, which should be posted at www.FaceTheGlory.com sometime soon. While you are there you can put your face on the bodies of some Olympic athletes and make your own video.
Watching all of those athletes compete in the Olympics can really make you thirsty. At Simon Malls, shoppers can purchase a 20 ounce Coca-Cola product from one of the new vending machines, exchange the Coke for a scratch-off card at the Guest Services Center, and win a prize. Prizes include Olympic-themed digital prizes from Coca-Cola, Olympic Games-themed Simon giftcards worth $25 and more.
As a proud sponsor of the Beijing Olympics, Kodak is offering a free Olympic pin. This limited edition collector’s item is free with any purchase over $199. This offer is available through August 24, or while supplies last.
Olympic sponsor Lenovo is offering 30-percent off select products. Lenovo is one of the world’s largest makers of personal computers. They also designed a special Olympic-themed notebook PC, which you can enter to win at Lenovo.com.
Panasonic, a sponsor of the 2008 Olympics, is already planning for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The reason? Those are the first games that will be in High Def. Right now you can enter the Get Your Family Ready Sweepstakes for your chance to win a 50" VIERA flat-panel HDTV, a Panasonic Full HD Blu-Ray Disc Theater, and a VIP trip for four to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
