KFC offers free food (again) and free gas (your joke here)
A couple of months ago, KFC nearly had some riots on its hands when patrons swarmed in to get the free grilled chicken meal that Oprah offered to viewers. So what would KFC do as a follow up? Offer another free meal deal this holiday weekend -- and throw in some free gas to boot.
That's right -- to launch the new KFC $5 Fill-Up Box, the company created the KFC $5 Fill-Up Sweepstakes to top off gas tanks – and stomachs. When you register, you can get a gift check for a $5 Fill-Up Box and a $10 gas card. But here's the catch: To win, you must be one of the first 200 people to register each day from Thursday to Sunday during a randomly determined time period between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Is it worth it after all the problems with the previous giveaway? You be the judge.
