Did you get the expired Lay's free coupon?

Posted June 18, 2016

Lay's offered a fun promotion a few weeks ago for a free Lay's BBQ chips product coupon. But their third party coupon distributor sent out the coupons late and many of us received them after the coupon had expired.

If you did, I have great news!

Lay's is making it right by sending out a new batch of coupons to everyone affected!

The new coupon will be valid on any Lay's product and it should have a nice long expiration date.

Here is the e-mail I received today from Lay's:

Hello and thank you for participating in the Lay's BBQ coupon offer which was part of a Facebook promotion. Due to an unforeseen delay in the mail processing, some Lay's fans received expired coupons. All affected consumers will be automatically mailed a replacement coupon to the mailing address on file and it will arrive within a few weeks. You will have plenty of time to redeem the coupon and enjoy Lay's BBQ or the Lay's flavor of your choice.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

For any questions, please call us, 1-800-352-4477.


Your friends from the Lay's team

    We got our coupon 3 days before it expired so we were able to get the free chips. I also got the email about it last week so we'll see if we get a 2nd coupon.

    Yep, got the expired coupon one day this past week, and two days later go a snail mail (not email) apologizing about it and promising to send a replacement.

    Was planning to call them, but didn't get around to it before getting the letter.

    I have the expired coupon. The expired one was good for up to 2.75 oz. or $1.49. Happy they're going to mail out new ones!

    TJ84 - I hope you get it too!

    My coupon's expiration date was 6/12/16. Can't remember when exactly I got it. I got the same e-mail today that you got Faye and I hope I get a new coupon for any of the flavors.
