KFC to scrap Colonel Club loyalty scheme leaving members with just six months to redeem and spend rewards

KFC to scrap Colonel Club loyalty scheme leaving members with just six months to redeem and spend rewards

KFC will scrap its popular Colonel Club loyalty scheme at the end of this month, meaning members with stamps remaining after the cut-off date will only have six months to redeem AND spend them. Loyalty scheme users currently have 12 months to redeem rewards and a further three months to spend them. Here's what's happening. 

The Colonel Club allows members to collect stamps when they place an order in store or via the KFC app. They can then turn these into rewards, such as free popcorn chicken or a drink. However, KFC said it will terminate the scheme on 26 July and replace it with a different rewards program that will launch in September. We don't yet know how the new scheme will work.

Below we explain what's happening. For help saving on your food shop, see our Supermarket coupons guide.

The Colonel Club reward scheme will close on 26 July - you'll need to redeem and spend your rewards within six months

The Colonel Club reward scheme will close on 26 July. From 12pm that day, fans won't be able to earn stamps when ordering food at KFC.

If you have three stamps (the minimum required to redeem rewards), or more following the 26 July, you'll need to redeem and spend them within six months. Users currently have 12 months to redeem stamps and then three months to spend them.

For those with fewer than three stamps, KFC will automatically boost these to three. You will then have three months to redeem and spend them.

Any rewards redeemed prior to the cut-off date can still be spent as usual

If you've redeemed rewards within their 12-month window but haven't yet spent them before 26 July, then you'll still be able to use them up to the usual three-month expiry date stated.

To check the expiry date of a reward, you can log into your KFC account via the app or desktop.
