The nation’s favorite fast-food restaurant isn’t nestled under golden arches and it has never urged you to think outside the bun.

For several consecutive years, diners have named Chick-fil-A as the best fast-food chain in America, according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index.

It’s no wonder the chicken-centric restaurant is winning over American hearts and stomachs. All of the menu items are truly delicious, from the nuggets and sandwiches to the waffle fries and lemonade.

If you are among the legions of Chick-fil-A fans, you might be interested in saving a buck or two on your next visit. Following are some ways you can trim your bill when visiting Chick-fil-A.

1. Get discounted gift cards

One great way to save on every meal at Chick-fil-A is to purchase discounted gift cards for use at the restaurant. These are cards that you can buy for less than their face value from online gift card marketplaces like Raise.

So, if you buy a meal with a gift card that you purchased for 10% off, you will effectively save an extra 10% on that meal.

2. Join Chick-fil-A One

Join Chick-fil-A’s free loyalty program, Chick-fil-A One, and you’ll be able to earn points with every purchase.

You can redeem points for rewards, and Chick-fil-A One members also receive a birthday reward. The fast-food chain explains:

“Earn points for every purchase and use them to redeem available rewards of your choice. Each purchase gets you closer to the next membership tier with increasing benefits.”

You can sign up for the program online or through Chick-fil-A’s app.

3. Dress up for Cow Appreciation Day

For years, Chick-fil-A has offered free food to customers who visit the store on Cow Appreciation Day. However, there is a catch: To get your free meal, you will have to come to the restaurant clad as a bovine. Fans arrive in everything from cow-spotted T-shirts to full cow costumes.

The event is scheduled for July, so you’ve already missed it for this year. But come July 2020, you better get moo-ving!

4. Fill out a survey

Some Chick-fil-A receipts come with a survey at the bottom. Fill out the survey, and you could get a free sandwich. Find details at the restaurant’s website.

5. Say no to the toy

Rumor has it that your kids can get a free ice cream cone if they are willing to forgo the toy that comes with Chick-fil-A kids meals. According to the Krazy Coupon Lady:

“Ask for ice cream or more fries instead of a toy with their kid’s meal for no extra charge.”

Again, we are unsure whether this deal is available in all regions, but there’s only one way to find out — call your local Chick-fil-A.
