Look, we all love fried chicken. And you’re just going to have to accept the fact that someone is about to get a year’s supply for free, and it’s probably not you.
That said, it could be you. You still have about 24 hours or so to get your name in the lottery. Because Deliveroo is offering a year’s worth of the good stuff to anyone who orders fried chicken from participating restaurants before the end of Wednesday — using Deliveroo, of course.
All you have to do is order fried chicken from one of the listed restaurants along with the promotional code LOVECHICKEN.
You’d better be sure to order from the following options — sorry to all you fried chicken fanatics in Alice Springs, but you’re out of the running:
Da Rin – Korean Fried Chicken
Surly’s – 2 Piece Fried Chicken
Mary’s – Extra Fried Chicken
Nola – Nola Fried Chicken with Spiced Tomato Sauce
Burger Theory – Spicy Chicken Burger (Fried Chicken Burgers)
Southern Attitude – Southern Fried Chicken
Nene Chicken – Korean Fried Chicken
Chimek – Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Waffles
Young & Frisky – Frisky Bucket (Frisky Fried Chicken)
Grease Monkeys – Southern Fried Chicken
The Hot Chicken Project – Chicken Wings
But wait a second … let’s take a closer look at the Instagram post from Deliveroo which introduced this event to the public:
We're celebrating National Fried Chicken Day by giving away a year's supply of fried chicken! Here's how to enter: 1. Follow us on Instagram and collect the code in the bio above 2. Go to the Deliveroo app and search the "Fried Chicken' tag 3. Order using the code and you're in the draw! *T&Cs apply
As you can see, the company pretty much implies that this will work for all fried chicken deliveries, and not just those from the restaurant listed above.
But check out the weasel words at the very bottom: “T&Cs apply”. Those pesky lil’ terms and conditions.
In other words, that little addendum to Deliveroo’s Instagram post serves as a sort of fine print to savvy customers, letting them know that the ad doesn’t contain all the relevant information.
But you have to wonder: how many people ordered fried chicken on the basis of this campaign, thinking they’d be entered in the contest when in fact they were not?
Probably kind of a lot of people?
Suddenly this offer seems a lot less generous! But at least some restaurants were able to move some product as a result.
Please: don’t be sucker, but do enjoy fried chicken. If you’re in one of the participating cities, ordering from one of the participating restaurants, remembering to use the promo code — well, then let’s hope you win a year’s supply of the crispy stuff.
