Sipping tea with a goal: a free night’s B&B stay

Remember when you’d cut out UPC codes from your favorite cereal boxes and mail them in for gadgets and gizmos?

Stash Tea is reviving that tradition, and the prizes have improved in the last few decades–you get a free night at a B&B.

What you need to do: cut out UPC codes from three boxes of Stash Tea and mail them in with a form plus $3.95 (check or money order). (Or else, spend $10 or more on Stash’s online store, plus $3.95.) You’ll get Stash’s Guide to Bed & Breakfast Inns, which includes a certificate for a free night at one of the 600 B&Bs in the US and Canada listed.

Unfortunately, a minimum two-night stay is required, and some B&Bs limit you to weekday or low-season stays. Fortunately, the offer is valid through June 2011.
