Are you a gambler?

Are you in the market for $6,300 worth of furniture?

Do you feel like the Houston Astros can avoid losing 100 games this season?

If the answer to all three questions is yes, you might want to check out the new promotion going on at Gallery Furniture.

According to furnituregallery.com, the first 500 customers who purchase $6,300 worth of furniture or more and have it delivered within one week will be eligible for the promotion. If the Astros go on to win more than 63 games during the regular season, all 500 participating customers will be refunded in full, which would set the store back at least $6.3 million.

Sound crazy?

It kinda does, yes, but apparently they just enjoy giving back to their customers. According to KPRC in Houston, the store also refunded more than $8.2 million in furniture to customers in two separate NFL promos.

Odds appear to be in the customer’s favor with the Astros promotion as well. After defeating the Yankees 3-1 on Wednesday, Houston is off to a 2-0 start following three straight season of 106 or more losses. That leaves 61 wins left on the road to free furniture and a more comfortable life. If you’re feeling lucky, now’s the time to make your move.
