Something For The Weekend - Born to be Chilled

Hello again everyone!  The sun has been shining here on the Island all week, with some good weather predicted for the weekend too – feels like summer is well and truly settling in nicely!  It was also the Isle of Wight Festival last weekend, which for me always marks the start of the summer festival season – months of fantastic live music (whether you watch it in person or on TV at home), chilling in the sun with your friends and family, maybe enjoying a BBQ and some drinks – so long as they are ice cold! 

Sound good?  Well, Carlsberg UK are offering the perfect on-pack promotion campaign – Born To Be Chilled!  If you pick up a promotional pack of selected Carlsberg products including Barlsberg Citrus, San Miguel Fresca, Carlsberg Blackcurrant, Tuborg or Somersby you can collect points to exchange for a fantastic Cool Bag Sounds System!  This funky cool bag will not only let you keep your picnic food and drinks cool while transporting them, but it will also connect with your MP3 player or smartphone and play all your favourite summer tunes at the same time!

In addition, Carlsberg are working in conjunction with Indie, Alternative and Rock radio station XFM to offer tickets to a series of stripped back, intimate acoustic gigs around London and Manchester, as well as a fun interactive, online summer garden!  See the XFM website for more details.

You need 6 points plus £7.99 P&P to exchange for one of these fab Cool Bag Sound Systems – you will receive 1 point on every promotional 4 pack, 2 points on every promotional 6 pack and 3 points on every promotional 12, 15 and 20 pack.  Claims for the bag must be made by 7th November 2014, so grab your friends and family, grab a cold one and enjoy some summer tunes with your picnic courtesy of Carlsberg.
