Never one to miss out on a promotional idea…

copyright Gallery FurnitureMattress Mac is betting customers will like his latest offering. Just a week after a Chicago area furniture store (Gonigam’s World Furniture Mall) offered free furniture (up to $10,000 per customer) if the Chicago Bears shut out their opponent, Gallery Furniture is making a similar wager. Gonigam’s ended up giving away $300,000 worth of inventory when the Bears held the Green Bay Packers scoreless. Mac is offering free furniture (if you purchased & take possession of $3,000 or more this weekend) to customers if the Houston Texans beat the Indianapolis Colts.

From where I sit, he is pretty darn safe. Despite the fact that, as with the Chicago store, he is likely insured against award losses, the odds against a payout are even slimmer. The chance that the Texans will beat a very good Colts team is less likely than the Bears shutting out a horrible Green Bay squad. But hey, if you were planning on purchasing some furniture from Gallery anyway, go by and take a chance on getting it free.
