The trickster twins of free food and Internet coupons struck again this week. Well, nearly free food. Boston Market restaurants are experiencing chicken shortages after their coupon offering customers on their mailing list a full chicken meal for $1. The coupon went viral on deal sites, and we even included it in our Morning Deals on Tuesday. And as more people than planned took advantage of the deal, lines ran long and supplies ran low.
Unless I’m dreaming a cruel dream that I’ll wake up from any second, today is July 10! Wait — don’t stare at me like you don’t know what that means. It’s Cow Appreciation Day! Still nothing? OK, let me explain: Dress up like a cow, head to a Chick-fil-A and you’ll get a free combo meal.
You forgot about the free grilled chicken meals from KFC, didn’t you? Well, I did. Melissa in Maine reported that she was able to use her raincheck coupon, and was satisfied with her meal. Or at least the side dishes.
Have you ever asked yourself, “Where can I get a restaurant kids’ meal for free or cheap on a Tuesday within 10 miles of my house?” Even if you haven’t, if you have kids of your own or visiting and want to take them out to eat, use KidsMealsDeals.com to find restaurants with kidlet meal promotions on any given day of the week.
In a move that surprises absolutely no one, KFC has ended its free chicken promotion. If you still have a coupon, visit a participating restaurant for a raincheck.(Side note: The president of KFC is
Australian South African?!)
It’s the first lunch period since the Oprah-promoted KFC grilled chicken giveaway started. Lines are predictably long.
