KFC fiasco….and here’s the raincheck!

Sharing is caring!

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!


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!

    I tried to get mine last night and got shot down. I told them to cancel my order and promptly returned to work to send them a nasty mail.

    I was just going to post about this on my blog. 🙂

    I have a question… we were allowed to print 4 KFC coupons – do we send a rebate form for each coupon? Has anyone heard anything about additional coupons?

    Thx for the form, saved me a trip!

    you send in the one raincheck and up to 4 coupons. They are assuming that we have 4 people in our household.

    I thnk the true problem is this…at some point someone hacked the system and made it a PDF Q instead of the Bricks Q. That is what it was suppose to be. I printed mine when it went through the Bricks site. Then later my Mom tried to print it and it was the PDF. I told her to wait to see if it got fixed. It did, then she printed her 4.
    That is the problem, they are just trying to act as if they were just overwhelmed with the response! LOL, no, they just didn’t expect someone to hack the system!!

    a “grilled” chicken option from KFC sounds like a good idea… it would be even better if they didn’t use meat from biologically engineered chicken-beasts

    I don’t :o(

    Once I stopped getting e-mails about it, I took my address out of the post and got rid of the pdf.

    Somehow it all seems a big scam…
    by filling up thier “Raincheck” they get our address.
    How else you can explain the “Overwhelming” response when they still have the “Grilled” chicken in the store.
    Also I noticed 3 couples in my line who came with coupons, when they were told that they need to fill up for thier “Raincheck” they brought the meal anyways by paying. So essentially these ppl would not have brought if they did not come to KFC. 6 meal buisness + their email ID. I think this is pretty sleazy 🙁

    Amiyrah – Do you still have the PDF by any chance? I lost one of my bricks coupons…

    If so, can you email it to me? I’d be eternally grateful! Lauriemac982 (at) aol (dot) com
