Free Furniture for Boston Red Sox Fans

This article was written by in Real Estate and Home. 1 comment.


MLB World Series 2007 LogoAre you looking forward to a Red Sox win in the 2007 World Series? Even if you are, you’re probably not anticipating the win as much as some Sox fans. Jordan’s Furniture, a company in New England owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, is giving some customers a reason to root, root, root for the home team.

Consumers who bought a dining room table, sofa or bed at Jordan’s between March 7 and April 16 will receive a rebate of the purchase price. The company, which has an insurance policy to cover the costs of the promotion, wouldn’t disclose the value of the merchandise bought during the five-week period, or details of the insurance policy.

This is great for Jordan’s Furniture. Even if the Red Sox win, those refund checks will not put a dent in the company’s financials. They’re already paying for the insurance policy, and that insurance company will provide the lucky customers with their money back.

Good luck to everyone who is hoping for a Red Sox victory, whether it’s because of the possibility of free furniture or just standard fandom.
