UPDATE: Due to the tragic incident on the Molson Coors campus in Milwaukee on Wednesday, February 26, Miller has announced they will be cancelling this year’s Free Beer Leap Day giveaway out of respect for those lost in the horrific event.
The JustBeer team sends our deepest condolences to the families of those lost in the tragedy.
Molson Coors issued the following statement about the event on Twitter:

Free beer for the leap year! SAB Miller announced in a tweet that they will be giving away free 24-packs of Miller Lite in honour of Leap Day on February 29th. The 24 cans are intended to symbolize the extra 24 hours we get in the year.
However, this leap year is special. For the first time since ’92, Leap Day falls on a Saturday! Which gives you time to drink your one beer per hour. (We’re totally kidding. Do not do this. We repeat, do not do this. You will get alcohol poisoning.) Try to spread them out throughout the next 24 days. You know the saying: “A beer a day keeps the doctor away.” Okay, maybe that wasn’t the phrase, but you get what we mean– don’t drink the whole case in a day.
Now back to the free beer. We know you’re probably wondering how you can snag yourself a free 24-pack of Miller Lite and we’re here to tell you.
How to Get Free Miller Lite 24-Pack
Unfortunately, it’s not quite as easy as walking into your local liquor store and grabbing your 24-pack, giving the cashier a nod and walking out. (Oh, in a perfect world…) You actually have to buy the beer. But you’ll get your money back!
To get a “free” 24-pack of Miller Lite: you’ll need to buy the pack, submit your receipt to SAB Miller and they’ll issue you a full refund via PayPal.
Where to submit Miller Lite 24-pack Receipt
Submitting your proof of purchase will be super easy. All you have to do is keep an eye on the Miller Lite social media pages. On Leap Day (February 29, 2020), Miller Lite will post a QR code to Instagram and Twitter. Use your phone or computer to scan the code. This code will take you to the proof of purchase submission site, where you can upload your receipt and get your refund.
(Please note, the refunds will take some time, so please don’t use your last buck on a 24 pack of Miller Lite in hopes of getting an immediate refund.)
