Thirsty Thursday transformed from a college campus ritual to a full-blown national institution. Not too hard to see why.

Speaking of responsible drinking, what could be better than earning rewards every time you stock up for Thirsty Thursday? You can do just that by downloading the Fetch app before heading to the grocery or liquor store. Learn which brands will help you earn the most reward points, which you can then turn around and redeem for free gift cards in the app!

What is Thirsty Thursday & What Does Thirsty Thursday Mean?

Thirsty Thursdays are a phenomenon borne of the American college campus. After sitting through seminars, listening to lectures, and seriously studying through the rigors of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, Thursday evening becomes a time to let (a little) loose and bring the week home in style. Think of it as a kind of warm-up for a weekend – a “pre-kend,” if you will.

It’s taken on a life of its own beyond the hallowed halls of beer pong and Jello shots. From chain bars and restaurants to quirky hole-in-the-wall joints and trendy clubs, Thirsty Thursday specials help celebrate the (near) passing of another working week.

Turns out a quick beer or a few fingers of whisky work wonders for us 9-to-5ers as well. Who could have guessed?
