New Year’s Eve, while watching my Auburn tigers play in their bowl game (some of you were in the chat room with me yelling OFFENSE and DEFENSE when appropriate), I registered for a free Chick-fil-A breakfast sandwich. Chick-fil-A was sponsoring the game.
Anyhow, today, when I got home, I checked my mail and discovered I had a Chick-fil-A calendar, with coupons on the bottom of each month, along with an envelope that had my coupon for the free breakfast sandwich.
At the bottom of the paper with the free breakfast sandwich was a Chick-fil-A gift card looking thing with instructions to have them check to see if it was loaded with any $$.
Noticing that January’s coupon was going to expire today, I decided to run over there. Mustn’t let something free get away, eh? So, I grabbed the card and coupon and drove to the one closest to me.
Placing my order for the free sandwich, along with some other food, I remembered the card, and a little sheepishly (I get embarrassed at stuff like this), read off the instructions. The guy zipped it through and then handed it to me.
“Well, was there anything on it?” I asked.
“Oh yeah,” he said.
“Well, how much?” I asked.
“Oh, quite a bit,” he said.
“Um, like how much, exactly?” I asked.
“Well,” said the teenager, “Let’s see…looks like you have about $85 left.”
Yep…I won a $100 gift card. Me, who never, ever wins anything. Apparently, 150,000 cards were sent out with 2,000 being winners. :happydance:
I must have been showing my blonde roots cause I still didn’t really get it. Then, the guy standing in line behind me offered to let me buy his food too. At that point, I got it. :teehee:
Anyway, it really perked up my day. I think the kid who rang up my order got a kick out of it too. He kept grinning afterwards.
What a very nice surprise, though. I’ve been very stressed lately with two proctored mid-terms to prepare for, and work has been nuts.
Just had to share…
