dealschick-fil-a cow appreciation day for $0.00


I appreciate chick-fil-a. And cows. and chickens


@justabandnerd: To each their own, but I don't support them. They contribute financially to anti-gay organizations, and that's not something with which I can agree or support.


Step 1: Build a cow costume with rainbow spots
Step 2: Wear it to Chik-Fil-A
Step 3: Free meal, light conscience!


Don't support a company that doesn't support equal rights.


What a perfect, final use for that cow costume my little daughter wore last Oct 31st!

She'll look and feel MOO-valous while eating their unbreaded chicken nuggets kids meal!


Is it REALLY supporting them if you get a free meal? If anything, it's like tearing down the establishment from the inside. pretty crafty.


Give 'em something free and some people will STILL complain about it. Give me a flipping break.


so you could drive around all day with the cow costume, and eat 100's of meals?


Their moral 'high ground' with their Christian thoughts supporting anti-gay anything makes me stay away from them, and spread the word of their sad prehistoric thoughts.


so you could go back in the same location every 30 min and they would not know right?


You can buy a cow costume at a local costume retailer or have some fun with this summer project by making one at home.
Here are some ideas:
Start with items that you already have at home - cow-printed accessories stashed in your closet will work perfectly. Hats, vests, scarves, neckties, pants, shoes, pajamas - just abut any cow-spotted item will work. Just make sure you're covered head to toe.
Wear white, and then just add spots. Throw on a white T-shirt with white pants (even sweatpants) and stick on your spots using black contact paper. If contact paper is not easily accessible, you can cut spots out of construction paper and tape them to your shirt and pants. If nothing else, you can grab an old white T-shirt and color black spots all over it with a magic marker - and you'll still get a free entrée.
Go to your local paint or hardware store and get a white painter's hat and overalls. And then decorate yourself with spots made out of contact or construction paper.


@linktoreality: Cute idea. :) It would be a free meal, but I'd be out the time/money for the costume. I'd rather stay home. I can't imagine needing a cow costume for something else.

@kennyt13: yes, it's supporting them by going to their restaurants, even if it's to get a free meal. They do that to encourage people to come in and become regular customers, plus it puts them in a positive light by having such promotions. I choose to not participate.

@thespiansmc: I adore that video, and have watched it more than few times.


I knew my cow pajamas and footsies would be worth something one day!


I love Chick-Fil-A. At least we know they're not hippocrites. What a great country we live in that we can express our beliefs. Life is way too dramatic sometimes. Nice opportunity to have fun if you are able to get into it.


@mbrower72: Could NOT agree more. I and my family and friends steer clear of this BIGOTED company. Shame on them!!!


I am extremely pro gay rights, but I am not going to let where a company donates its money come between me and a damn fine chicken sandwich. At least they are not actively trying to poison people like McDonald's.


@bigray57: problem is the chicken sandwich is UN fracking believable

THEY SELL THE BEST chicken of any fast food joint, hell for any place for that matter. I have no idea how they do it but its perfect every time


I have gay family members that actively boycott numerous businesses like Cracker Barrel and others but they draw the line at delicious Chick-fil-a sandwiches. I guess sometimes deliciousness wins out over moral certitude.


shaming myself dressed as a cow for a fast food meal is unacceptable. now maybe if they offered me a million dollars i would reconsider but pride before cheap chow.


I fully support Chik-Fil-A for tehe various stands that they have taken over the years. It is good to see a company the values morals over the almighty $ and refuses to bow to the vocal minority who values run contrary to those held by the founding fathers. One only needs to take the time to read historical documents to see where the moral origins of this great country are based. Way to go, CFA.


Kale Ain't Chikin...leave our Vermont Kale guy alone!! And don't pretend you aren't serving up a greasy heap of hate and homophobia!


I agree with boycotting bigoted business, but I think my friends and I just may become RAINBOW COWS today.


They do not support me so I do not support them.....


guys. by going to get that 'free' sandwich, you are giving them business. you might not be paying for it, but people looking from outside in are seeing what appears to be another paying customer.

their marketing team can consider it a big win if your moral compass is turned off to get a free sandwich.

if you're pro LGBTQ rights, you won't eat here even if they pay you. and that's why I will not eat there. that's letting a (profanity) company win you over. and c'mon, the food is really not that good in the first place.


Their chicken is AWESOME!! although I gotta figure out how to glue on these stupid spots...

I believe in good chicken. Not as good as Popeyes, but they don't have "dress like a cajun" day, so I'll have to go with 2nd best.

To join the sad commentary on our culture, here's my editorial:
[Soapbox edited]


Chic-fil-a is a Christian based company who chooses to use the financial means they have been blessed with to do what they consider to be God's work. With that being said, I don't ever remember seeing a crusifix or a copy of the ten commandments hanging in any of their stores. They don't try to cram their belief system down the throats of their customers.

It is worth noting that they have repeatedly ranked among the top employers in the country for employee satisfaction in multiple surveys. Everyone I know that has ever worked there has had mostly good things (no place is perfect) to say. They even make it corporate policy that every Chic-fil-a in the country is closed on Sundays so that employees can spend some time with their families each week. Granted, Sundays are traditionally a church day. However, the company does not require or even suggest that you use your day off for that.

I support any company that ethically produces a quality product for a reasonable price.

vote-for-47vote-against that McDonald's has their Southern Chicken Sandwich....I no longer have to bow to Chick-Fil-A's right wing religious bigoted boot. AND I can get it on a Sunday!.

Do not fall for this ridiculous marketing and boycott this chain that donates to and supports causes that only proffer fear and hate and divisionist ideas to the simple minded and uneducated (for an excample....see Toyotaworks09)


Fantastic Restaurants! Those that claim they are bigotted exemplify the same prejudice towards religion! Who's the bigot, really?


Stay home then, haters. More chikin 4 me!


Wow people are passionate about Chick-Fil-A. I always thought of them as over priced below average quality mall food. Their food seems a little better than I remember in the mall, but the important thing is the ones in this area all have play lands, and the milfiest moms you can find.


It's not that Chik-fil-A just doesn't support anything having to do with gay rights/equality, it's that they actively donate corporate profits to anti-gay/hate groups.

They won't be getting any of my business.


I think the real crime in all this is how pro-furry and anti-everyone else this promotion is.


A) Chik-Fil-A has great chicken. Is it the best? That's to be debated. Is it worth going against what I stand for? No, not at all. And that's my "opinion" as everyone else keeps pointing out.

B) [Soapbox edited]


@theselected: I approve of drag queens making funny videos about fast food.


[Soapboxing edited]

CHICK-FIL-A has donated over $ 2 MILLION+ to groups that actively oppose LGBT rights.
Best to know the truth rather than bury your heads in the sand you religious wingnuts!!


Me: Extremists on every side!! My inbox can no longer take it. I'm going to Chick-Fil-A. Folks, believe what you want, but most of you are denouncing the other guy for doing the same thing. You people are certifiable!

Extremist #1: Who you callin "you people"? By "you people", are you saying that all gays are crazy!!?

Me: Uh, that's not what I was saying at all. It's just a euphemism for the collective everyone in this conversation. Sorry.

Extremist #2: Who you callin "you people"? By "you people", are you saying that all god-worshipping people are crazy!!?

Me: Sigh... I give up.


Okay folks. This is getting out of hand. (This happens in every Chik-fil-A thread, so it's not really all that special although I understand if you would like to lob grenades at me.)
- Cow costume talk & drag queen videos about fast food = fine
- deal talk = fine
- your personal opposition/support for chik-fil-a = fine
- the quality or lack thereof of chik-fil-a's product = perfectly fine
- "educating" other people on chik-fil-a = ask the community
- your politics, thinly veiled hate speech, and personal attacks = elsewhere


link for Ask The Community. It's the discussion side.


Chicken sounds good for lunch, Beef sounds better for Dinner :)


@draigun: Thank you for stating the case better than I could. Yes, the company actively supports organizations which are anti-gay, and would deny gays equal rights. It is offensive to me. That is worth taking a stand over, and it's far better than any chicken sandwich could ever be.

Though I do like the idea of rainbow cows. :)


there was this one time i ate there and left lunch with my own views still intact.

true story.


@oslofan: so you've already decided you can be bought - you're just haggling over the price?


[Mod edit: Off topic]

Back to the topic I love their food.


Guys. It's a Christian company that gives to Christian organizations, and homosexuality is one of many things that is immoral in the eyes of mainstream Christianity. Surprise, surprise.

It does not mean that Chic Fil A is a hate group. Those organizations also do a lot of good, but you seem to be conveniently ignoring that. Talk about political correctness run amok. Just either go get your free sandwich, or don't.

I will not be because I have too much dignity to dress up like a cow XD


This is my first foray into Chick-Fil-A divisive deals discussions.

I'm impressed and have a new respect for the amount of work Mods must have to go through.

[soapbox never mounted]

Also: Rainbow Cows would be Heeeelarious

@tonymontana444: I wish I could upvote your comment more than once. Well said, my friend.


@kjlane: Exactly my thoughts!

However, I'm not one of those people that let a company's ideas or donations offend me anyway. It's a free country, and everyone should be allowed to believe what they wish and donate their money how they wish. As long as they aren't shoving their ideals down my throat when I walk in (to their business), more power to whatever their ideals are.

That being said, I really wish we had a Chik-a-Filla around here, because I would be crazy enough to dress like a cow for a free sandwich!
