Did any of you print the KFC coupons that were on the Oprah Winfrey site? Wow....what a bust!! On the way home from teen daughter's dr. appt., we exited off the highway to stop in at a KFC, coupons in hand. We walked up to the entrance, and on the door there was a sign that said, "TV coupons can only be redeemed from 1:30-4:00 p.m." Wow. What a letdown! I couldn't believe it!
So, I did what any respectable blue-blooded American mom would do. I went to MickeyDs. :)
Yeah for cheeseburgers! :)
So, when I (finally!) got home after the dr. appt. and working my volunteer gig, I started reading posts about other people who have had the same experience. My sis, Danesa, over at mdamborge, also posted her experience with KFC. This is my theory: if this promo between Oprah/KFC was to promote their "healthier" chicken and to bring in new customers, I have bad news for them. It flopped big time.

So, stay tuned while I cruise the internet for fab finds that actually prove to be blog-worthy! :)
**UPDATE** Not sure if this will turn out any better, but I also found this link:

This article is explaining that El Pollo Loco is going to honor those now-pretty-worthless KFC coupons that you may have printed. We don't have one around here, but if you do, you might want to call yours and see if they are truly participating! :)
