5 Oddball Olympian Promotions

The Summer Games may be coming to a close, but not without one final opportunity to cash in on Olympic fever.

Eat24’s Olympic-themed onion rings.

No, we’re not talking about eBay sellers auctioning off a genuine $41,000 Olympic torch. Or online vendors offering Olympic souvenirs ranging from T-shirts to Team USA wineglasses. Instead, we’re talking businesses tying that noble Olympian ideal to anything they happen to be hawking, whether it’s a bottle of tequila or a specialty ladies’ undergarment. After all, is there any game greater than good ol’ capitalism?

SmartMoney surveyed the consumer landscape to find five oddball Olympic promotions still available. Happy shopping!
