On 5/5/09 and 5/6/09, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Oprah have proven that there really is no such thing as a free lunch. Especially if you cannot or will not permit malware/spyware to be installed on your computer (not to mention give those folks your personal information). KFC decided to go with the infamous Coupons.com scumbags to offer up four free chicken meal coupons through the Oprah Winfrey show. Coupons.com requires the customer to give personal information as well as install a pernicious piece of software that leaves behind things you really don’t want left behind.
KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) and Oprah discriminate against people and violate customers’ trust and privacy as well as potentially harming customer and viewer computers.
I, for one, will be boycotting KFC for a very long time; and I’m the type that writes off companies for life. And Oprah should fire someone for this coupon travesty. How embarrassing!
UPDATE: As of early December, 2009, I have not heard from KFC despite its promise to contact me. Nor, incidentally, has Oprah’s people apologized for this as far as I know. Consequently, my family still has not spent a single cent at any KFC and will not patronize KFC until further notice.
