Coors Light and Tide want to keep your tasks light
Leave the dirty socks. Coors Light and Tide offer to do your Saturday laundry so you can enjoy college football game day.
Coors Light continues to deliver on its brand promise of “beer made to relax”. The ubiquitous beer brand is now offering fans the chance to win free laundry services for a month so they can watch more college football at their favorite bar.

The beer brand has teamed up with Tide Cleaners as a cross-promotion partner. On Saturday, October 8, fans in Chicago, Cincinnati and Denver can also drop off their dirty laundry at participating bars, where it will be sent to a local Tide Cleaners facility, washed and returned to their home. Fans can also enter for a chance to win bundles of Coors Light merch and Tide merchandise.
