With one in six[1] Brits expected to indulge in a shopping spree in the Black Friday sales, Greene King, the UK’s leading managed pub company and brewer, is offering stressed-out shoppers the chance to unwind with a free drink in more than 1,000 of its pubs nationwide – and all you need to do is show the receipt from your Black Friday bargain!

Following their successful shopping spree, customers simply need to show a receipt of a purchase made on Black Friday (29 November 2019) at the bar to qualify for a free drink. Shoppers can select from a range of aptly-chosen Black Friday-themed drinks, including a pint of Guinness, a Whitley Neill Original gin served with a Schweppes tonic, a Jack Daniel’s and Coke or a Coca-Cola draught soft drink.

As well as a free drink, Greene King will also be offering shoppers extra spend on gift cards purchased during the promotional period (25-29 November), with an extra £10 top-up when purchasing a £50 e-voucher  - the perfect gift for friends and family who enjoy a traditional trip to their local over the festive period.

Phil Thomas, chief commercial officer at Greene King, said: “Black Friday has become one of the biggest shopping days of the year and on a day that’s all about spending we thought we’d buck the trend and offer a free drink for thirsty shoppers to enjoy.

“For the more digitally savvy out there, you can complete your Christmas shopping from the comfort of your local pub using your mobile or laptop, and get a free drink for your hard work, as we’ll accept digital receipts too!”
