Looking to score some free food? How about an entire free entree at Chick-fil-A?

The restaurant is giving out free food on Tuesday, July 10 to celebrate Cow Appreciation Day.

All you have to do is show up at your local Chick-fil-A between opening time and 7 p.m. … Oh, and you have to be dressed like a cow.

Any cow costume works, even if it’s just cow ears or a white T-shirt with black spots.

You can make the costume yourself or buy it — anything goes! Just throw it on, show up and a free entree is all yours.

While the restaurant has not posted a list of the entrees you’ll be able to receive in the deal, it says to check back on its website closer to the date to see what you’ll be getting.

When Chick-fil-A made the same offer last year, the list included breakfast, lunch/dinner and kids items, like the original chicken sandwich and the seasonal smokehouse BBQ bacon sandwich.

This is the 14th year for the offer and in just 2017 alone, 1.8 million people participated.

So, yup, it’s safe to say you’ll be seeing a lot of people dressed as cows on July 10 if you live near a Chick-fil-A.

This dance team paid homage to Chick-fil-A by performing their entire routine in inflatable cow suits!

Check out some of these “udderly” fantastic costumes from last year’s Cow Appreciation Day.

There’s this creative duo that used paper plates to create cow masks:

And this totally cute baby dressed like a cow. You’re never too young to get free food!

Even this cute pooch tried to get in on the action. I’m not sure if they serve dogs but it’s worth a shot!

This is family bonding at its finest:

Can’t make it to Cow Appreciation Day? Just download the Chick-fil-A app and you can earn free food simply by using it to order. It also means you can skip the line, too!

And if you don’t live near a Chick-fil-A at all, we’ve found a perfect recipe to make copycat nuggets and sauce that’s just like you ordered it from the restaurant!

Will you be throwing on your best bovine gear and heading to your nearest Chick-fil-A?

Free Papa John’s Pizza

Looking for other ways to score free food? How about pizza?

There’s no better night than pizza night — except when we’re talking free pizza. And now through July 8, you can get a free pizza at Papa John’s with online orders of $20 or more.

All you have to do is use promo code “thanksme” at checkout and 25 Papa John’s points will be added to your account within 24 hours. Redeem the points by July 8 and you’ll get a free large pizza with up to three toppings.

Because you’ll be signing up for the rewards program if you want your free pizza, you’ll end up getting other deals on future orders as well, like one point for every $5 spent, which you can redeem at a later date. Just 10 points gets you free bread sticks or desserts, while 15 points gets you a free medium 2-topping pizza.


The only thing that could possibly make this more exciting is if they served you your pizza in this special pizza box that transforms into a food tray so that you can scarf your tasty slices in bed. Because sitting up straight — perhaps even at the kitchen table — is not nearly as cool as lounging with your pie in front of the bedroom TV.

Will you be taking advantage of this deal and having a pizza night soon?
