Disappointing Promotion By KFC



I believe this promotion attracts a number of people's eye. And it even becomes one of the topic now, am I right?

I knew this promotion from my colleague yesterday. We planned to go KFC for lunch today. But, later on, I felt disappointed after knowing that the promotion is over.

Yea, right, they offer such a wonderful deal, we should appreciate and thank them.

But, there are things that should be highlighted.

VALID UNTIL 15TH JANUARY 2012

The validity of the coupon should be until 15th January 2012, which means ONE MONTH. What happened? One month turns to become ONE DAY? How ridiculous it is?

VALID UNTIL STOCKS LAST

Yea, there is no wrong on them by saying that it's out of stock.

But, doesn't it sounds funny? The validity is last for one month, and the stock is running out in just one day time? If it's running out so fast, why don't they set the validity to one week? Preparing one day's stock for one month promotion, doesn't it sound funny?

Okay, human isn't perfect, we can't predict 100% correct. We give our one month promotion, the stocks may run out faster as we predict. But, how come it's such a huge difference? One month with one day! It's too unacceptable!

Why not saying that you are going to give away a coupon to enjoy your free meal for the whole life. And, while people go to redeem, you tell people that the it's already out of stock, in which the 'while stocks last' referring that there is only 1 coupon is giving out for redemption?

That's funny, isn't it?

I believe a lot of people are complaining and start boycott KFC now. KFC, you are now in trouble, you need to find a way to cool down the complaints.

  12. Really very disappointed. I also thought can print the e-voucher and go for exchange free burger, the next thing I know, no more liao my friend said.

    It's really ridiculous. McD much more better when giving out e-voucher for free burger
