    I did this last Saturday. Our store had plenty of samples, but FYI…color options are limited to things made with a white base. I was looking to get black paint (which is made using a dark base), but couldn’t.

      You were lucky your store at least had some paint. I was just about to leave a comment warning people that when I went to my Ace last Saturday they were out and told me they only had 40 free quarts which were gone immediately. She told me if I want to try this Saturday I should be in the line outside at 7:30am when the doors open and then I MIGHT be lucky enough to get a can. No thanks! I wanted some free paint, but not quite that badly. 😉

        I live outside of Baltimore, MD. Our Ace had the paint late in the afternoon on Saturday. They had plenty.

        Are you in a large city? My Ace is in a town of about 20,000, and most of their customers are older farmers. I’m guessing most won’t even be aware of the deal.

        • Chris says:

          Whitney, no I’m actually in a town similar to yours. Population about 25,000 and a farming community with a lot of older residents…..go figure. I guess there are a lot more people in my town who want free paint than I anticipated! 🙂

    I went Saturday and they had plenty of paint. I got the color paint I wanted and a quart was exactly how much I needed for a small accent wall!

    I stopped by my local Ace store at about 1:30 pm.. and the guy told me that he was only supposed to give away 40 cans but he gave away 80, mine was #79. I lucked out.
    The good news is that I didnt know I had an Ace Hardward Store so close to me..

    I agree with the other commenter.. If you want to get one of these cans of paint, get there early..

    I misplaced the coupon I printed, then forgot my computer when I went to work to print it, then went and had it printed at Office Depot, since I saw the must have coupon note at the bottom. Got to the store, they had a whole pad of coupons, and the cashier hassled me over having a “photocopy” of the coupon, and argued about redeeming it–all I would have had to do was get a new one from the paint guy! I love the paint, but sure hated the experience!

  5. WilliamB says:

    I guess stores vary – I went at 1.30pm and no one mentioned a limit. There was a big pad of forms at the counter for anyone to use, too.

    Can we get another can this week, if we got one last week?
