PEMBROKE PINES, FL - MARCH 20: Workers at a Chick-fil-A deliver meals to customers in their vehicles at the drive-up window after the restaurant closed its indoor seating in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic on March 20, 2020 in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Across the country businesses are restricting hours and restaurant owners are being asked to close except for pickup and delivery in an attempt to curb the spread of the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

I wish this was happening in Charlotte but alas you can only take advantage of this deal if you will be driving through Lynchburg, Virginia.

I’m sure you’ve heard that there is a coin shortage in the country right now. Well, at least one Chick-Fil-A has found a unique way to restock their coin inventory, and the public will be rewarded for it.

Tomorrow in the city of Lynchburg, Virginia, the Chick-fil-A franchise will be giving away free food to anyone who brings in $10 worth of change. Customers who bring in $10 of rolled coins between 9 am and 11 am and 2 pm and 4 pm will not only get a $10 bill in return, they’ll get a voucher for a free entree, with the store limiting customers to 10 coupons.

Sadly, this promotion is not nationwide, since Chick-fil-As are independently owned and operated, but the company does support it. They said in a statement, “Due to the decrease in coin circulation nationwide, some restaurants may choose to offer incentives like this one to ensure they maintain enough coins to provide guests proper change, should they choose to pay with cash.”

  • And they aren’t the only ones offering incentives for coins. Some 7-Elevens are offering free Slurpees to anyone who trades in $5 in change for $5 in cash.
