Super Bowl: Best Deals and Contests for the Big Game (Video)

The big game is only a few days away, and with it comes a host of marketing opportunities, commercials, promotions, contests, and giveaways.

Each year, execs at major food and beverage companies wrack their brains for ways to get you, the consumer, to laugh, cry, and pull out your wallet before, during, and after the Super Bowl.

Though the cost of airing a Super Bowl commercial is famously high (about $4 million for a 30-second spot, according to CNN Money), the rewards are great -- especially when there's a consumer deal or contest tie-in.

We've compiled a list of the best deals and contests for this year's big game -- along with some of the cooler commercials set to run.
