BALTIMORE - When the Baltimore Ravens scored one of its touchdowns at the Super Bowl on Sunday, hundreds of fans in Baltimore won free furniture.
Gardiners Furniture in Maryland offered customers buying furniture a deal if they shopped between Jan. 31 and 3 p.m. on game day.
"If Baltimore runs back either the opening kick-off of the game or of the second half for a touchdown, everything you buy will be FREE!" according to Gardiners' Facebook page.
It didn't happen on the opening kick-off, but when the Ravens received the kick-off at the opening of the second half, Jacoby Jones ran the ball from one end zone to the other, scoring six points for the Ravens and free furniture for fans.
"That was amazing! Furniture is FREE! If you made a purchase this weekend, it's your lucky day. Go Ravens!" Gardiners posted on its Facebook page after the touchdown.
The company expected to give away $600,000 in furniture, according to the Baltimore Sun.
One note though, it may take a few days for the store to figure out how to give the money back.
The store said on Facebook, "If you are one of our lucky winners, we will have more information for you this week. Deposits and payments will be refunded. Be patient though, this is our first time experiencing this too so there isn't a protocol. We are so excited for our winners and for our wonderful RAVENS!"
