FREE Chick-fil-A meal TODAY!

Posted July 14, 2015

It is time for the annual Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day! You can score a FREE full meal on Tuesday, July 14, but there is a little something you have to do to get the freebie.......

On July 14, get a FREE meal at your local Chick-fil-A if you come to the restaurant fully dressed like a cow, from head to toe. Kids who come fully dressed like a cow can request a kids meal. Those dressed partially as cows (not head to toe) get a free entrée. This offer is good at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We did this a few years ago and used white clothes and taped black spots to them and then used rope as the tail and made construction paper ears taped to a headband. Very cute, very funny, very frugal and very yummy FREE meals for me and the kids!

For all the details on the event, head to chickfila.tumblr.com/faq.

If you have more ideas on frugal cow costumes, please share them here! There are also ideas at the link above.

Will you be sporting a cow costume on July 14?

    my fiance and i just wore cow masks (inspiration on chick-fil a website) and got our free chicken sandwiches! we however could not convince his 16 yo son to participate lol! there was a great deal of cow attire when we arrived at 11:45am, but got our food fast. some of the head-to-toe cow costumes were very simple and they received their free full meal...hmmm makes me think i should've wore all black and taped 3 pieces of printer paper on my clothes...maybe not! overall, not humiliating at all!

    We've done it every year for about 9 years. My kids look forward to it!

    I went last year and made my kids all dress up! My oldest didn't want to at first until they got there and saw that everybody else was dressed up too. I love chik-fil-a and love free food even more!

    Trying to talk my granddaughter into this, but I don't know if she'll do it. We'll see...
