Product allocation method
Given that products offered as part of the Expressive beers event are rare, sought-after and offered in limited quantity, the SAQ reserves the right to:
- Allocate the possibility to purchase bottles through a computerized random draw.
- To limit the number of bottles ordered per client.
Please note that products from this event can’t be combined with any promotional offer (rebates, Inspire points, etc.)
General terms and conditions

You must pay only for the products for which you entered the lottery, that were allocated to you by the automated lottery process and that you wish to purchase, according to the maximum quantity you indicated when you entered the draw.

You will receive an email informing you if products were allocated to you or not. You have 48 hours after this email is sent to purchase products allocated to you. Your purchase if final.

It is forbidden to create several accounts with different email adresses. Those who don’t respect this rule will have their SAQ.COM accounts deleted and won’t be able to create new accounts, preventing them from gaining access to lottery events.
