KFC Changes How To Claim BLC Discount

Hey Guys;

Just giving a heads up that KFC have changed how to claim their BLC discount now as it is now an app exclusive offer.


1. Download the KFC app
2. Click on Discounts
3. If you already have an account, sign in. If not, create an account.
4. Once you’ve signed in, click “apply blue light discount”
5. Enter your surname and Blue Light Card Number
6. Enjoy discount

Screenshot of a tweet. This changed as of today (3rd Jan 2023).

    Warning, I had student offer on my account from about 8 years ago and even though the offer was reduced recently to a popcorn chicken box on an order over £3 this has now disappeared and only the 10% bluelight discount is available.
    On lower priced orders the student offer worked out better value.
    I can't revert back to the student offer without re applying a code I no longer have. (edited)

    Shame my local kfc doesn't support the app.
    Ah well, local chicken shop it is, cheaper anyway

    A few times at my local, I was waiting at the front till to be served for around 30 minutes. Other people ordering with the touchscreen got their orders whilst I was waiting.
    Blue light discount with KFC isn't worth to be made to wait to be served whilst everyone else is getting their orders fulfilled.

    thanks for this.

    does anyone know if using the KFC App to place an order for delivery - do the funds go to KFC or Deliveroo?

    I think it goes via Deliveroo as I can't order via the KFC app where I live, but can order via Uber Eats

    Anyone tried putting their details on another app ie kids phone?

    Presumably it's linked to your account so would depend on if you're using the same account.

    Can you apply BLC discount on your online order? When you order via app?thanks

    Strictly speaking it’s applied to your account so, I suppose so but I can’t confirm as I’ve only ever ordered KFC over the counter.

    I have linked my card now. But when I ordered and paid on app it didn't discount.
    How can I apply ordering this way?

    Ironically I haven't actually used my BLC for this offer yet (because I think the Student Freebie is better value than the money off) but did you use it in conjunction with the KFC Offers (like a 6 piece for £11.99) or with the Hot Wings 20 piece bucket etc?...

    I know the offer doesn't work on promo items, just full price menu items. (edited)

    Went the other day to do this and was told as well can't do it unless it's on the app. Told them we didn't have the app but showed them the BLC and they did it anyways.
