Talk about stupidity. You do a huge promotion with Oprah and national advertising, overload your coupon distribution vendor causing problems with people downloading the coupon, and then once you figure out the PDF workaround for that, you back out and say "actually nevermind.."? Now you've wasted a ton of money and probably damaged your image far more than any positive gain.


From the KFC website:

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 form's instructions, by May 19, 2009, and we'll 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.

Thank you for your understanding,

Roger Eaton
KFC President

: Not related to radio (well wait, it sort of is - This is an Oprah promotion and Oprah is now a satellite radio goddess, so thereby...)

: Free 2 pieces of the new grilled chicken, 2 sides, & biscuit. Bombass promotion! Yes, I know this is all just a gimmick to get people talking about KFC and hopefully get people addicted to the new grilled stuff.

: Expires 5/19/09
