5 Easy Ways to Eat Free At Chick-Fil-A

It is no secret that Chick-Fil-A is my family’s favorite place to eat.  In our opinion they have one of the best chicken sandwiches around but as a family of eight eating out can be pretty pricey.  I have found some ways to still be able to eat at Chick-Fil-A without breaking the bank! 

Every year at the end of November, early December Chick-Fil-A sells The Cow Calendar’s. These calendars are not just a typical 12 month calendar, they include a card with monthly offers from Chick-fil-A.  Offers such as sandwiches, drinks, desserts and more! The calendar typically costs $10 which includes these monthly free food offers.  I purchase one for each of my family members.  It is definitely worth the money! 

Do not throw away your receipt without looking at it because Chick-Fil-A from time to time offers a free chicken sandwich just by doing a quick survey on-line. Fill in the code they give you after taking the survey, bring the receipt to Chick-Fil-A and they will give you a free sandwich! 

I recently discovered a program called the A-List program which, is a VIP program and completely free!  You can ask your local Chick-Fil-A for the A-List card and then register your card on-line.  Simply eat chicken and receive more treats just by scanning  your card when you purchase food. Plus A-Listers are invited to exclusive experiences throughout the year! 

Add the Chick-Fil-A app to your smart phone but do not forget to add funds to your app because every time you pay for your food using your app you earn “treats” which can be sandwiches and other goodies.  Also if you rate your treats you can also earn more treats! 

Do not forget about Cow Appreciation Day! It’s coming right up (July 11th). Customers who arrive wearing any sort of cow apparel will receive one free entrée! You could eat breakfast, lunch and dinner if you wanted to! I have costumes set aside for every year for my family to wear just for Cow Appreciation Day which was well worth the few dollars to put together! 


Can you tell my family loves Chick-Fil-A? How do  you save money at your favorite restaurant? 




  1. You can still scan the app even if you don’t pay through it! I almost always pay cash, but still scan my app to earn treats!
