I had an unusual twenty-four hours this week camped out in a Chick-fil-a parking lot in sub-freezing weather. For those who aren’t in the know, Chick-fil-a restaurants offer a one year’s supply of free meals to the first one hundred people in line for a Grand Opening of one of their stores. This week Chick-fil-a had a store opening in Oklahoma City and my daughter and I decided to try to be one of the chosen few.
It was not difficult being one of the first 100 because it was raining and snowing when we arrived at 5:45 in the morning to get in line. There were 81 of us brave souls. The tough part was spending the next 24 hours in their parking lot in our little tent trying to stay warm. I have to say that Chick-fil-a has Class A employees. Even the head honchos present treated us like royalty (even if they wouldn’t let us stay in the building or leave the parking lot in the freezing weather).
Yep, I can now eat free at Chick-fil-a for a year. I love saving money — and I’ll even pass it forward. If you mention my blog, I’ll give you 10% off your next reservation. Hey, and I’ll also take $10 off a $75 Romance Package. Yea for saving money!
