Mystery of $100 Bills Stashed in Grocery Stores

TODAY News

Who is spreading love around the Pacific Northwest, $100 at a time?

Turns out a country music radio station in Oregon is the source of the windfall.

More than a dozen people have reported finding $100 bills tucked into their groceries – in egg cartons, ice cream cone containers, boxes of cookies and even a chocolate bar. The products were purchased from various grocery stores and at least one Walmart location throughout Oregon and southwest Washington.

On Wednesday, Portland radio station 98.7 The Bull, (KUPL), cleared up the mystery by acknowledging it hid the greenbacks as part of an on-air promotion that started early last week.

“We wanted to give everyone a chance to win," Scott Mahalick, programming director for the station's owner, Alpha Broadcasting, said in a statement, "Having a live and local radio station with live on-air talent that live and work in our community means that we can be connected to our listeners on a personal and immediate level."

The station’s morning show hosts also took to a local Safeway store Wednesday morning to demonstrate how they have been secretly hiding the bills.

The cash contest will continue for at least another five weeks, the station said.

One of our local news stations does a promotion called, "Pay it Forward."

One of the reporters goes to shopping centers with a sign and people suggest a friend or acquaintance who can use $400.

That's the catch. You don't get the money.

They've had some real tear jerkers on who really needed the money

That's a great idea. I assume they got the name from that great 1999 movie 'Pay it Forward'.

My fault, it's a 2000 release. But anyway it stars Kevin Spacey (great actor) Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment.

Re: Mystery of $100 Bills Stashed in Grocery Stores

You gotta be fucking kidding me!
I lived in the apartments directly across the street from that exact Safeway in the bottom picture for 3 years- '05-'08- while in college. I can even see the goddamn building reflected in the windows. And that's the only store I bought groceries at. Where the fuck is my $100?
