Xcel wants your beer fridge. And if you’re a residential customer in Minnesota, Xcel will actually pay YOU $70 to come pick it up and recycle it.
Usually, Xcel pays $35 (I did this back in January; shame I didn’t wait), but the retirement reward is double now through the end of November 2011.
To qualify, it must be a functional, second refrigerator, capable of making ice.
Now, just imagine the happiness you can buy me with that $70.
Don’t be greedy, that’s my commission. You’ll agree once you hear how much a beer fridge costs to run.
Not an Xcel customer? Minnesota Power offers up to $85 to pick up old, working refrigerators. Here’s a list of energy providers with similar programs.
