Did anyone get the free KFC this week? I think the consensus is a resounding NO! Well, as you may have heard, they are offering a raincheck for those who were unable to redeem their coupons at participating KFCs. You have to go to your KFC, ask for the rebate, and they will send it in. Or so I thought…
When I went today, I decided to make things a bit easier and go to the drive-thru. I had sonny boy with me, and getting him in and out just to go fill out a piece of paper was just silly. Well, when I got to the window, even though I saw the car right in front of me fill out their sheet and hand it right back, the lady told me to fill it out in the parking lot, and bring it back into the store! Uh, nuh-uh! I quickly looked at the paper, and saw that in the right corner it said that you can just mail it in. So, I told her “sure, be right in!” and then proceeded to drive off to my next destination. Doesn’t she realize how valuable time is when you have a toddler that will need lunch in about 45 minutes?
Well, I decided to be even more crafty. It’s such a waste of gas to go to KFC just for a photocopied sheet of paper. So, I’m going to post a scan of my sheet for all of you! You should be able to right click the picture and print the scan. I don’t feel bad for putting this up because 1) it’s not like it’s an “official KFC ranicheck form”….it’s a photocopy piece of paper and 2) they deserve as many of us sending in for our rainchecks as possible. They really should have been more prepared for this….especially with the “big O” backing them on her show. remember to send in 4 copies of the coupon! You are allowed up to 4 raincheck coupons per address.
EXTRA TIP! Got a Pollo Loco restaurant near you? Take a copy of the KFC coupon to their stores on Mother’s day and get a free two-piece grilled chicken meal! Yay!
STICK IT TO THE (CHICKEN) MAN!
ANOTHER UPDATE: Some bloggers are saying that the coupon from Oprah.com is not being accepted. Because the pdf coupons all have the same code, they are saying they will not accept them. Now when I went to this page on Oprah.com, it says otherwise. I think I’ll stick with what’s said on the Oprah site. But, I will still be stopping my Polla Loco to get my free meal from there as well. I’m treating this like any other rebate I do….hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
YET ANOTHER UPDATE: It didn’t sit well with me that bloggers were saying that the Oprah version of the coupon wasn’t going to be accepted, so I called the toll free number to KFC customer service and it has been verified, by the company, that the Oprah coupon WILL BE ACCEPTED with the raincheck. So, no worries, guys. Get those rainchecks out!
