    Stella Artois, makers of some very nice Belgian beer, have a limited time giveaway of a free Stella beer chalice (otherwise known as a goblet.) You can see the offer and the chalice on their website http://www.stellaartois.com. After submitting your birthdate, click on "1-800-My Chalice", or you can just call 800.692.4254 to order one.

    (OK, I know this is not exactly a travel-related deal, but I can't find any better place to post it on MP. Just pretend you're going to Belgium to drink the beer in the free chalice!)

    GONE: 1.7.12 I just tried the phone number, and the offer is over.

    hmmm, I guess MP doesn't have a SPAM forum, perhaps an idea for the board?

    How about in off-topic?

    I'm with you, Willie. I looked for something like that, but with no luck.

    MLW20, I considered the Off-Topic board, but it's such an underutilized mish-mash, ranging from money-saving deals to OMNI-like threads, that I feared a limited-time offer like this would not not be noticed in time. (The CSR I spoke with when I placed my order told us they were getting so many calls that he did not expect the offer to last very long.) This is a Deals board, and even though the sub-category is Air & Travel, it has included recent posts on Mastercard bonuses and a TUMI luggage sale, so I figured this would at least be in the ballpark. Apologies to anyone who feels this is a completely inappropriate place for the post.

    It would be nice to have a SPAM-like forum on MP for things like this. It's interesting that although SPAM stands for "Sites with Points and Alternative Miles", it has evolved into a catch-all for free items, bargains, great deals, etc. that often have nothing to do with points or miles.

    Maybe we could call the MilePoint version FAD (Freebies and Deals). Or BARF (Bargains and Real Freebies.) Or DAMD (Deals and More Deals).

    Or maybe just Deals, Deals, Deals. Then we can call it the 3D board. :)

    Thanks, because by posting it on Off-Topic you've helped prove my point about that being a less-desirable board for deals and freebies. I posted an offer for nothing more than a free beer glass, and 24 hours later had approximately 230 page views. You posted for a $1,000 Amazon gift card contest and ended up with just 13 page views in 24 hours.

    You've got me baffled! Are you saying that from 13 views on the off-topic board your blog got 500 views? Imagine if you had offered a free beer glass, too! :D

    no the blog traffic didnt come from my MP post. I posted the 2 separately.

    But you're right, should have advertised the free glass giveaway! :)

    Could not see the chalice link. Maybe it is gone.

    Sorry, but I think you misunderstood my post. There is no link on the Stella website for ordering online, just the phone number & the picture after you login. You have to call to order the chalice. 1-800-MY-CHALICE.

    Chalice Update: Just received mine in the mail today. It's about 7 inches tall, and will comfortably hold about 12 ounces of your favorite adult beverage, leaving room for a little Belgian foam at the top. :) The front has the red Stella logo, and the back has a faux-engraving that says "Originally crafted for the Holidays." You'll never fool anyone into thinking it's fine Baccarat crystal, but for the price, it was a pretty nice deal. Unfortunately, a check of the 1-800 number reveals that the deal is now over.
