UPDATE: Cow Appreciation Day is postponed in 2020. You can see the announcement here.
Chick-fil-A invented Cow Appreciation Day as part of its clever advertising campaign. The day is usually observed during the second week of July. You can score a free entree at any participating Chick-fil-A location simply by dressing like a cow.
Your costume doesn’t have to be elaborate, and even cow-like accessories will qualify. Black and white spots seem to be the key.
Your free entree can come from the breakfast, lunch, or dinner menu, but salads are excluded. And you must order at the store, because mobile orders are not eligible (how would anyone verify your cow-like attire if you’re tapping on your phone screen from home?)
Kids dressed like a cow may select a Kid’s Meal.
