I just wanted to let you all know that KFC is no longer accepting the free meal coupons. I understand how frustrating this can be, especially if you didn’t even get a chance to use them. I do think these companies that offer free food promotions need to be way more prepared. They should of known from the get go that the response received would be “overwhelming” and should have planned accordingly. From the fiasco with the free subs at Quiznos, well, I was hoping this promotion would go differently.
This is what they’ve said on their site:
We are so sorry, but due to the overwhelming response to our FREE Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal coupon, we can no longer redeem the free coupon at this time. But we will honor our commitment to giving you a free Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal. Please visit a participating KFC restaurant for a rain check form. Complete the form, attach your original coupon , and give it to the KFC restaurant manager or postmark per the forms instructions, by May 19, 2009, and well send you a rain check for your free Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal at a later date, plus a free Pepsi with our compliments. Your participating KFC restaurant will provide you with the form you need.
Please note that the redemption periods of the rain checks will vary. All other terms and conditions of the original free Kentucky Grilled Chicken coupon will apply.
On a positive note KFC is offering this additional promo:
The first 200 people to register on KFC.com each day will receive $10 in KFC gift checks which may be used toward the purchase of KFCs new Kentucky Grilled Chicken for their mothers. This offer is for a five-day period, May 6 through May 10, beginning each day at noon EST and ending at 4 p.m. EST!
If you want to get in on this deal, then I would highly recommend registering exactly at noon EST. Remember it’s ONLY available to the 1st 200, which means they will go FAST!
