Never in my life would I have thought to utter the words “supply chain issues” as many times as I did last month, but here we are. Unfortunately, with demands on the global supply chain running high, shoppers trying to ensure Christmas gifts reach their loved ones on time are feeling the sting. Try as you can, some things get out of hand, but a delayed Christmas present isn’t the end of the world. Heineken’s latest release – the Heineken IOU box – is a fun consolation gift you can give to friends and family in place of their Christmas present stuck in transit. Trust me, one look, and you’ll want to know how to get a Heineken IOU box, stat. Who knows? It might even be better than your original Christmas present.
The Heineken IOU Box features a few key features: a festive red and green design, an IOU note letting the recipient know their gift hasn’t arrived on time, and six bottle-shaped slots that will fit perfectly into a Heineken six-pack. . On the IOU slip, there is also space to write what someone’s original gift was supposed to be. He’s a hilarious, understated genie that will put a smile on your gift.
Beginning Friday, December 10 and continuing on December 11, 12, 17, 18, and 19, consumers will have the opportunity to obtain one of Heineken’s IOU boxes, which are only available in limited quantities each day, by following a few steps. First, you can request a Heineken IOU box on the Heineken IOU website by uploading a screenshot of your late shipping issue and sharing a brief explanation of your situation. If you are chosen to receive an IOU box, you will be notified and will receive the box by same day delivery. In the box, you should find a $16 prepaid debit card, which you can use to buy a Heineken six-pack to stick in the box.
Of course, you must be 21 or older to participate in Heineken’s IOU initiative, which unfortunately is only available in the following cities: New York, Philadelphia, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Atlanta, Washington DC, Los Angeles , San Francisco. , Chicago, Houston and Phoenix. If you are unable to score an IOU on December 10, keep trying on subsequent days. It may not be the expensive, personalized gift you originally planned, but it is a thoughtful congratulations to the one you love.
