And once you reach Silver Status, you'll have the option to give your rewards to friends & family, which is awesome!

🚗Skip the line! This isn't a money-saving tip, but more a time-saver…and time is money sometimes, right?? If your drive-thru often has a long line, use the app to place your order and pick it up via Curbside! It's often much faster, especially if you have a busy location!
2. NEVER miss Cow Appreciation Day.
Or as it's more commonly known – dress like a cow day! 🐮
Normally, every second Tuesday of July (July 13th this year) is Cow Appreciation Day where you can score completely FREE Chick-fil-A entree or kids meal just for showing up in your cow ensemble. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, this popular day has been postponed until 2022. 🙁
3. Trade in toys for free ice cream for kids.
One of the most-shared tips amongst moms of littles is that you can save the toy that comes in the kid meals and trade it in for a free Ice Dream treat. You can also just ask for an ice cream treat instead of the toy when ordering if you're okay with your little one having a treat soon before it melts.
But if you forget, just be sure to hang on to that unopened toy or book! Since sometimes your kids just aren't into the toy of the month – or you're getting duplicates – this is a great alternative! When my kids were little enough not to notice or care, I would tuck away the toys that came with their kids meals, and pull them out on a later date so we could have a free trip to the play place, snack included. 😉
4. Fill out those surveys!
At the bottom of your receipt look for a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A sandwich for completing a survey (sometimes done in the app). I am so used to throwing those in the bottom of my purse and forgetting about them, but lately I realize I've actually been tossing away some super-valuable freebies!
Surveys appear only once in awhile (maybe once every few visits) and usually on full price orders, but it varies.
5. Get creative with menu choices!
Did you know that you can buy a 30-count box of chicken nuggets for under $15 at most locations? The price per nugget is about the same if you were to purchase the 8- or 12-count entrees, but you can order a couple large fries and and it is enough food and works out being cheaper than ordering separate meals.
Here are some other ways Passionate Penny Pincher readers have shared that they save on Chick-fil-A:
“We buy a 4-Piece Chicken Strips meal for $6.19 and add buns (2 for 20¢) = $6.39. We then have basically two chicken filet sandwiches and share the fries and drink! :)” – Amy
“I often buy the larger nuggets and a fry for me and youngest man child to eat.” – Kelli
“I always order one 6 piece kids meal to share between my two… I trade the toy for icecream… get the food home, split it up and add fruit or goldfish. Both kids are full and happy!” – Jessica
“We always order the 30 count nugget, one large fry and I get the Market salad. Of course that's to go—so once we are at home– I divide the Nuggets up and add a fruit, or some type of side. I eat the salad and my husband and three children eat on the nuggets and fries. We can feed 5 for $24” – Selena
“We do the 30 count nuggets my husband and I will share a drink and two large fries.” – Morgan
“Most of the coupons have a trade option so if you don't like the exact item, there's usually an alternative.” – Amanda
6. Attend free Family Nights.
Looking for something fun to do? Most locations offer a weekly or monthly family event with a special theme as well as games, crafts, a visit from the Cow, and sometimes restaurant specials.
Be sure to call your local store to see when their next event is taking place or follow your local Chick-fil-A restaurant on social media for local specials they may be offering!
7. Grab your favorite Chick-fil-A sauce at the store!
If you're a Chick-fil-A sauce enthusiast 😉 , consider stocking up on their new bottled sauces at Walmart, Target, or even Amazon! Other participating retailers that sell this sauce include Food Lion, Harris Teeter, H-E-B, Publix, Winn-Dixie, and more. Plus, grab it during a sale to save the most!
