Beef ‘N Bottle’s ridiculous gift card deal is back — one guy bought $3,000 worth

Axios archives

Right now when you buy a $100 gift card at Beef ‘N Bottle, you get a $50 gift card for free. It’s insanity. I love it.

“It’s the best true deal in our market,” said Beef ‘N Bottle Owner Rick Bouman. “It’s is our way of thanking the community for 60 years of support.”

The deal started on December 1 and runs until December 31. The gift cards are good for five years, and the only restriction is that you can’t use them in the month of December. “The intent is to give a gift and get a gift,” said Bouman.

You can buy gift cards in the restaurant, over the phone or on their old-school website that processes payments via Paypal setup. Keep in mind that you’ll literally get a paper gift card that’s a little larger than the size of a dollar bill. If you want it to arrive by Christmas, the last day to purchase a gift card online is December 18.

“We mail them out in an envelope, with a stamp, and put it in a mailbox, you know, the old school way, just like us,” said Bouman.

Beef ‘N Bottle has been doing this same gift card deal for the past few years and unsurprisingly, it’s massively popular amongst its unpretentious, steak-loving regulars.

The owner of an online sneaker company buys $3,000 worth of gift cards each year Bouman told the Agenda. “Just the other day I mailed a gift card to a U.S. military base in the Arab Emirates, probably the furthest away I ever mailed one to.”
