Don't Believe This Chick-Fil-A Sunday Deal

Don't believe everything you see on Reddit. Okay, so that's obvious. But some internet hoaxes are so clearly false, one has to wonder why the perpetrator even bothered. Our current times may be filled with uncertainty, but there is one thing you can be sure of, no matter what anybody online tries to tell you: Chick-fil-A is not open on Sundays.

Even with a change in leadership at the fried chicken chain, the closed-on-Sunday policy remains unchanged. Chick-fil-A's new CEO Andrew Cathy, who just replaced his father Dan, said as much in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. "We'll definitely keep our stores closed on Sunday," Cathy said. "It goes back to how my grandfather started the business. He knew how hard it is to work. And so we continued that philosophy of keeping our stores closed on Sundays so that people can go to church if they want to, if they need some time with family."

This is why a post to the ChickFilA subreddit by Redditor jonathan20771 can only be seen as an attempt at ironic humor.

Reddit's $15 Chick-fil-A meal deal is too good to be true

The Chick-fil-A Reddit post looks like a promotion for a special offer: 30-count nuggets, a medium mac and cheese, two large fries, and two medium drinks for $15. This would be a real good deal, considering the 30-piece Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets alone went for $14.69 when they were announced in 2018, according to Taste of Home. You realize it's too good to be true when you read that this meal deal is only available from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sundays through November.

The Reddit community responded with the expected upset and confusion over the realistic-looking promotional image. "Why did I fall for that," Bear_and_Bougie commented. "You're a sick, sick person. My feelings are hurt." Thomassaurus said, "I was just confused at first, why would they have a meal deal on the day they're closed?"

While one Redditor said the fake deal was tempting enough to break into a Chick-fil-A location on a Sunday and prepare the meal for themself, the whole prank was perhaps best summarized by Redditor Marble1696, who commented, "Now this is silly."
