Back when I was in college, the mini fridge in my dorm helped me save money in a couple ways.
First, I could bring food from home that cost less than it did in campus stores. Second, I could chill a 2-liter bottle of pop purchased for 99 cents at the grocery store at home and drink that all week instead of putting 50 cents in a vending machine each day for a can of soda pop.
If you have a kid heading off to college, here’s a chance to get them a little fridge without having to pay for it.
Danby is giving away three of the appliances in its back-to-school promo. The grand prize is a Danby compact fridge plus an iPad and a $100 Visa gift card to stock the fridge. Second place is a fridge and $100 gift card. Third place is a fridge and $50 card.
But don’t count on winning this freebie before the start of school. You can enter once a day through Sept. 30 and the rules say it will take two to 10 weeks to deliver the prizes to the winners.
