As the deal's fine print explains, you can either place the order for the free meal via the app or show the "My Card" QR code in the app when you place your order at participating restaurants. You can get only one free breakfast per account, in case you're wondering. But, all said, it seems like a pretty low lift for a free meal, especially if you already flock to Chick-fil-A for breakfast.
"Treating customers to breakfast is our way of thanking them for dining with us, and is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of using our app, Chick-fil-A One," Michael Lage, the company's senior manager of digital experience, said in a statement. The app, which is meant to make dining at Chick-fil-A easier and provide perks to loyal chicken sandwich eaters, has been downloaded more than 10 million times since it launched last June and once surged to the No. 1 spot on the Apple App Store's most popular free app chart. We're just going to assume all the free food had something to do with it.
