Regular KFC customers will soon no longer be able to use the Colonel’s Club to collect stamps
KFC customers will soon be unable to collect stamps as part of an overhaul to its loyalty program.
The fast-food chain has confirmed it is scrapping its Colonel’s Club, which allowed customers to redeem stamps for free food and drink.
How does the diet work?
Currently you get one stamp when you spend £3, or spend £15 and you get two stamps.
Once you have collected enough stamps, you can then claim a free reward.
Customers with between three and six stamps can get a free side, including popular dishes like wings or popcorn chicken.
If you have seven to ten stamps, you can choose a regular snack, such as a mini tenderloin burger.
Those with over 11 stamps can get £5 off their next order and this can be used against any menu item.
When will the scheme end?
KFC has confirmed that its stamp program will close on July 26.
In an email to customers, he said: ‘It’s time for a change, so philately is about to disappear. It was great, but we have our eye on something else.
KFC has announced that a new program will be launched, but details are yet to be confirmed.
Customers took to social media to complain about the news.
One Twitter user wrote: “So boring. I’m a £5 stamp less!”
“@KFC, are you really ending loyalty stamps for customers? I have so many stamps to use!” said another.
“Stop the stamps… But what about the stamp rewards we have already collected, will they be valid until the original expiration date? For example, September 2022 for me,” said added a third.
Can customers still use their stamps?
KFC has confirmed that customers will still be able to use all the stamps they have collected and will increase their reward to the next level.
If you have fewer than three stamps in your account on July 25, 2022, KFC says you’ll be able to qualify for a free side, and if you have between three and six stamps, you can still get a free snack.
Those who have between seven and ten stamps in their account will be credited with £5 towards their next expenditure.
A KFC spokesperson told the Mirror: “It’s true, all good things must come to an end and our loyalty stamps will end this month.
“But don’t worry, this is not a farewell to our faithful flock. Just like our famous recipe, the rest is a well-kept secret.
“Look at this space – it won’t disappoint.”
