Despite the tantalizing offer, Wednesday’s post saw only a modest amount of engagement, with fewer than 2,000 likes as of Sunday evening.
“If my future husband doesn’t propose here, it’s over,” commenter “estiehazelwood” wrote in response to the post.
“Didn’t get engaged there but we met while working there,” Instagram user “jenjenmariec” wrote.
“We had Cracker Barrel cater our wedding!” commenter “jmartini81” wrote.
Valentine’s Day is on Tuesday, February 14. Early birds and Johnny-come-lately types have a cushion, though, as the contest runs February 10-16. Five couples will be eligible to win. The actual date of the proposal is not limited, so potential entrants who long ago proposed at the restaurant could also win.
Would-be winners must submit proof of the engagement to be entered. Entering also involves uploading a publicly-viewable video depicting the proposal between February 10-16. Entrants must also include a description of why they proposed at the restaurant along with the hashtags #ISaidYesAtCrackerBarrel and #Contest. Also, they must tag Cracker Barrel’s Instagram account.
For couples who aren’t quite ready for marriage-level commitment, Cracker Barrel is offering a consolation prize of sorts. Customers can get a free “Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola Cake® or Biscuit Beignets” whey they buy two select entrees and are dining in.
The official rules of the I Said “Yes” at Cracker Barrel Valentine’s Day Contest note that winners will be notified on or about February 28, 2023, and they must respond within 24 hours to claim the tasty prize.
“Free Cracker Barrel for a Year,” according to the contest rules, consists of multiple gift cards totaling $2,000 per winner. The company calculates that one meal or entree weekly for two people averages about $35, which comes out to $1,820 for 52 weeks.
Cracker Barrel is not the only company running Valentine’s Day-related contests and sweepstakes. A Michigan hotel is wooing would-be entrants with an overnight stay, a spa visit, a chef tasting, and more. An Indiana jeweler is tempting entrants to submit photos of their beloved to win gift cards. And a Tennessee dance school is offering private dance lessons as a prize.
