Food News: Free KFC Oprah Debacle, Expiration Date Extended?

According to my pals at Would I Buy It Again? , the KFC/Oprah 2 grilled pc, 2 sides and a biscuit free coupon deal will be honored through May 19th.  No word of this yet at  UnthinkKFC.com.  There were so many people packed into KFC’s trying to get their free food, I heard some places weren’t honoring the coupons.  People get bitter.  It’s $3.99 at the regular price.  Check this out from MSN.  KFC riots?

Update:  I see confirmation that the deal is extended to May 19th.

  1. Mine had 5/19 on it so I am only speaking to my version! Mothers day is excluded. I put a pic of my coupon on the post, check out the language at the bottom. It looks like there were a few problems in the OC…http://fastfood.freedomblogging.com/2009/05/06/kfc-extends-deadline-for-oprah-coupon-due-to-demand-glitches/20107/

  2. Check this out (EPL rules :P)

    “What does KFC have against Moms? Seeing that Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 10th and that KFC is excluding this day for the redemption of their free two piece meal coupon, we want to invite Moms everywhere to bring their KFC coupon into El Pollo Loco on Sunday, May 10th to receive a FREE two-piece meal that includes two pieces of El Pollo Loco’s fresh, natural, citrus-marinated, flame-grilled chicken, a choice of two small sides, plus two tortillas and fresh salsa,” El Pollo Loco said.

    It has always been 5/5/09 – 5/19/09 (excluding Mom’s Day!). I think what they did extend is the time to get/print the coupon because it was originally only available to print from 9am CST 5/5/09 – 9am CST 5/6/09. They changed it to 9am CST 5/5/09 – 11:59pm CST 5/6/09. The servers were slammed with people trying to get these coupons.

  4. DHL says:

    I just double checked now and they changed it again to only 9am CST 5/5/09 to 9:59pm CST 5/6/09.
