Are manufacturer's instant redeemable (IR) coupons offered on alcoholic beverage products at the retail point of sale legal in this state?

No. Manufacturer’s IR coupons offered at the retail point of sale are not legal in this state, as the manufacturer would pay the retailer a handling charge to reimburse the retailer for redeeming the IR coupon at the point of sale. The manufacturer’s payment of the handling charge to the retailer would be considered something of value and a violation of the unfair competition statute.
