You've Been Using Your Chick-Fil-A Reward Points Wrong This Whole Time
If you’re a regular at Chick-Fil-A, you probably already know about Chick-Fil-A One. It's the chain’s membership program that allows you to earn points on every purchase to redeem for select items off the Chick-Fil-A menu. However, you probably aren’t getting the best possible value out of the reward points and here’s how to remedy this.
Redditor u/Plaguei5 posted a spreadsheet to the r/Chick-fil-A subreddit, outlining the best way to spend your rewards points for maximum benefits. The document lists the menu items from best value to worst, based on the correlation between the item's points value and price in dollars in Dallas, Texas, but the reward points should be comparable across regions.
“Lower Points/$ correlates to better value,” u/Plaguei5 explained — for instance — “medium Waffle Fries are the best value [...] Small Mac and Cheese is the worst.” Instead of going for items like mac ‘n cheese and every salad option, Plaguei5 suggests medium waffle fries as the best value item, while chocolate chunk cookies, large drinks, or hash browns sides are also good options.
Grateful Redditors praised the user for the helpful spreadsheet — u/nadroj37 wrote, “You're doing the Lord's work,” while u/Joeybish remarked, “This might be the most important post I've ever read on Reddit.” u/EngineerGunter agreed, “THIS is what the internet is for. This is the way... to Reddit.”
