There’s something that seems just not right about Oprah Winfrey giving away KFC, but relax — it’s Kentucky Grilled Chicken, so that makes it okay. The stuff looks flat-out nasty to us (they couldn’t have taken a better picture?), but demand is so rampant for the coupon (downloadable till midnight tonight and good for two pieces, two sides, and the worst biscuit you’ll ever taste) that people over at Oprah.com are freaking out. Yesterday a message on the site said: “Due to the overwhelming interest to download the grilled chicken coupon KFC is experiencing technical difficulties. We are aware of this problem and KFC is working to solve the issue as quickly as possible.” The thousands of user comments amount to a harrowing power struggle between those who’ve managed to download the coupon and those with only a proverbial wing and a prayer. Somewhere, as her loyal subjects descend into a desperate mob, Oprah must be out there saying, “Let them eat chicken!” Here are the most heartwrenching of the comments.
I’ve been trying to access the kfc coupon for over an hour now.. i don’t know what’s wrong. and I really needed that coupon to feed my 2year old
Requires Windows or Mac. So to get a free dinner I have to spend $300. Linux users are people too, but I guess we can afford dinner with the money we saved on our OS.
THANK YOU OPRAH, I WAS JUST NOW ABLE TO PRINT THE KFC COUPON! IT TOOK OVER 3 HRS.. THANKS AGAIN!! NEW JERSEY GIRL
Well I tried to use this coupon at 6 different KFC’s yesterday, and not one of them would take it. Said they were not taking them. What is up with that?
I don’t know if users realize this or not, but if you download the coupon printer you are actually installing spyware on your computer.
I’M MELTING CAN’T GET THE COUPONS PLEASE IS THERE ANOTHER WAY OF GETTING THEM ???? HUNGRY FOR THE CHIICKEN
I got the coupon….no problem, but I can’t use it in Canada
It is 1:30 p.m. pacific time and I cannot even get on the site to download a coupon. I bet that I never will.
i was just woundering i watch your show every day and us canadians never get anything free fom you. why is that your fan Amanda
Nice gesture since I am unemployed and a free dinner would have been nice. I could not download the coupon.
The chicken must be like air pudding … no calories … since I can’t print the coupon.
the coupon link is not working for me. it keeps saying it cannot display the web page. please help, i have to feed my children!
THIS IS REALLY FRUSTRATING!!
Oprah, would not support a scam but KFC probably only want to give out so many so they will only let so many go through.
Oprah, the thought was so nice, but the process was a nightmare! I am now going to have to oder fried chicken to make up for all the calories I lost by trying to print the coupon.
FREE Factory farmed chicken!! WOW..FREE KFC.. thats great.. For who? Support organic. It’s healthier for the chickens and the people who eat them.
It would be nice if you had something for us veg folk who don’t eat meat. Anyway, KFC is still being investigated for it’s horrific cruelty to chickens.
I think I will be up all night trying to print the coupon…am not getting through and started thirty minutes ago.
Two words: Blame Canada!
