Here's a free KFC dinner to make up for those shipping costs that are going up. :)

I was able to print off 4 coupons that must be used between 5/5 and 5/10. Sorry guys, not good on Mother's Day, plus you should be treating the moms and sweeties in your life better than KFC on Mother's Day anyway.

Coupon download available from 9 a.m. CDT on May 5, 2009, to 9:59 p.m. CDT on May 6, 2009.

I use that coupon printer already. It simply counts the number of times you print it on that computer. Some coupons can only be printed once. Others twice. This one allows 4 times and then it tells you you printed it the maximum number of times allowed.

It does not print on it's own without your involvement.

The laptop wanted to install the 'coupon printer', and even after doing that it would not let me print to a network printer. Desktop happily printed off 4 coupons without requiring the 'coupon printer' installation. Both machines WinXP SP3.

P.S. 'Coupon Printer' uninstalled without difficulty.

I already had that coupon printer installed--haven't had any problems with it.

I saw a news article today that said the response has been so overwhelming they've had problems both with the coupon and at the franchises, which weren't prepared for so many takers. I think I'll have a back-up plan when we take ours in.

IThe first time I tried, it sent me to a pdf file on the website. That coupon did not need the coupon printer and printed lots of copies. :eyepop::cool: All the other times I went to the site it went to the coupon printer. Could not print at work with the coupon printer, but could at home. I tried to load the pdf from the website directly, but it is no longer there.

I've heard this and I've also known restaurants that are still accepting coupons.

Who knows what's going on these days?!

I think the free chicken special was featured on Oprah earlier last week which caused the overwhelming response. If we could only get a rocketry feature on Oprah I think this hobby would be set.

KFC sucks; yesterday my wife ran by a nearby KFC after work to bring some food home for Mother's Day at her parents house. She was charged a whopping $19.99 + tax for a meager 12 piece grilled bucket. I've been in
restaurant management for 23 years previously (Farmer Browns Chicken &
Biscuits/Churches Chicken/Popeyes) and have NEVER heard of any 12 piece
charged that much. A complete, total and blatant ripoff.

The best chicken dinner available is from my local IGA grocery store's deli department.

One whole rotisserie chicken for $4.99. Cheaper if you stop in at the end of the day.

That's basically 8 pieces of chicken

and some stuff (the back and misc parts if I clean the meat off the bones) for the dogs. No I don't give chicken bones to my dogs.

IMHO, something is not a "ripoff" unless it doesn't meet the advertised description, e.g. fraudulent. Is the bucket listed on the menu as "12 piece"? If so, then the buyer should have a pretty good idea of what they're going to get for their $19.99+tax. If they don't like it, they can vote with their wallet. Nobody is forcing them to patronize KFC (or wherever).

Maybe so, my wife probably wasn't sure if she was getting a good deal. One
interesting website to look at concerning complaints against many companies
is http://www.complaints.com/ Click it and type in KFC or Kentucky Fried Chicken and see what you get.

I think you nailed that one pretty accurately, especially your first line (...total ineptness...). What were they thinking, after all??? Oh, wait, maybe they WEREN'T thinking...
Looks like I probably wasted two sheets of printer paper and some toner. I think I'll cut my losses there and pass on the whole thing.
