Chick-fil-A is releasing their famous Cow Calendar for 2012. While these calendars have funny cow pictures your kids will enjoy, I love all the coupons for FREE Chic-fil-A food!

***To see the complete list of dining coupons and deals go here.***

The price of the calendar is $6 plus tax, making this a great way to save money on Chick-fil-A all year long.

Here is a list of the coupons (my mouth is already watering!):

Jan. – Free Chick-fil-A Nuggets, 8 ct.
Feb. – Free Small Bowl of Hearty Breast of Chicken Soup
Mar. – Free Simply Orange Juice or Dasani Bottled Water
April – Free Large Diet Coke
May – Free Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit or Large Waffle Potato Fries
June – Free Large Coca-Cola Zero
July – Free Small Hand-Spun Milkshake
Aug. – Free Spicy Chicken Sandwich
Sept. – Free Large Coca-Cola
Oct. – Free Chargrilled Chicken Sandwich
Nov. – Free Chick-N-Minis, 3 ct., or Yogurt Parfait
Dec. – Free Large Sprite

These can make for great Christmas gifts, especially for extended family and kids in college!

      I already bought mine. We get four every year. One of each of us.

    • Allison

      CFA is so coupon friendly!  They let you use expired coupons, multiple coupons in one trip, and the calendar coupons don’t have to be used in the month stated.  Love them!

      • Guest

        so true and one of the reasons why they are still one of my favs – yay Chik-fil-a!

        • Guest

          I forgot to also say that if you buy a drink one day and bring back the cup on a different day, they will give you a refill for something like 59cents – every little bit helps

          • Holtzclaw5

            That’s incredible!  Didn’t realize…thanks:)

    • oneplustwins

      Last year they gave a calendar away free when you bought a $20 gift card…any idea whether they’ll do it again? 

      • Tiffanyrose

        I’m hoping that they do that again too!  I think they did it sometime around the end of November/early December.  I’m not rushing out to get one yet.

      • anna

        I work at Chick-fil-A and I have an answer to your question =) Chick-fil-A’s are individually owned and do their own promotions. You will have to check with each restaurant to see if they are doing free calendars. My Chick-fil-A isn’t this year. hth!

    • Copeland8401

      where do u get them calendar

      • Squirrellyec

        You can grab one from any Chik-fil-a restaurant. 

        • Holtzclaw5

          You better pay for it first…sorry couldn’t resist:)  My family loooove chickfila and spend most of our eating-out dollars there!!!!

    • Curlybamboogirl

      They are awesome!  They allow substitutions which is great when they have a diet coke coupon and they let me get a coke instead.

    • Free food is nice, but I’ll pass on this one. Chick-Fil-A’s charity association donated nearly $2 million to anti-gay causes in 2009. I’ll happily pay for food from businesses that don’t encourage hatred and discrimination.

    • Karen

      I love Chic Fil A!  Their employees are always so polite.  They are very active in charity work, especially where kids are concerned!  They have helped my daughter earn money in order to perform out of town with her chorus!  They’re an all around good company with good food!  I plan on buying several calendars from them again this year…they make wonderful gifts!

    • guest

      Just something for people to be aware of. My daughter has a Chik Fila in the student center at the U she attends. They do NOT accept coupons. Since there is no ChikFila in the town she didn’t use very many of her coupons last year (didn’t matter, she still loved the calendar)

      • Guest

        Typically, franchised establishments within a college campus aren’t regulated by the company but by the school – which makes the coupon policy that of the University, not of the corporate entity (I work for a university).  Good point to bring up, thanks for sharing!

        • AP

          Same for sporting venues and arenas-they do not accept coupons b/c of the prices mandated by the establishment.

          • guest

            I knew it had “something” to do w/ U policy but wasn’t sure what. Thanks for the info. Now you have me wondering if their “never on Sunday” would apply at at the U because daughter’s other frustration is that she typically doesn’t have time to go out to eat any other day–she is anxiously awaiting her Thanksgiving break to get some ChikFila

    • Kari

      Love Chic Fil A and the values they stand on!  Love to support them as obviously many others do also.  So glad when we are able to support companies whose values line up with our own!

    • guest

      Love Chic-Fil-A.  They do so much good for our community.  I asked once how they keep the kids playground so clean; they pressure wash it every night!  Not like the other fast food places where the playgrounds are grungy.

    • Kristin

      One of my good friends did the art work.  I feel so proud!  

    • AP

      I LOVE these!!  My husband works at a CFA (and I used to) & I never get tired of the food.  We love to give these to out-of-town relatives that we don’t see that much.  I may not know what size they wear…but I know they like to eat!! :)

      • Kat

        Be careful if you have relatives that live up north, I think they aren’t around much up north.  I know where my relatives live there aren’t any.

    • rw

      um…how is this FREE??? as the headline suggests….

      • guest

        Re read, punctuation is important, the coupons are free, the calendar is $6/

        • Kristin

          Even without punctuation, there are moe than $6 of coupons in the calendar. Thus, free coupons. 

          • Ellie

            It is cheaper to buy the calendar and then eat for FREE than it would be to try to feed my family! So I think for $6 it’s a great deal!

        • Turd_Ferguson

          Regardless of how you say it, the coupons are not free – you have to buy a $6 calendar to get them.  ECON 101.

    • Alissabeth

      Got 2 from my front door. Students were doing fundraisers!

    • Stephanie

      Chick-Fil-A and Publix!  Two amazing companies!  Probably the last two that care about their customers!

      • Squirrelhater

        Both are excellent at customer service.I don’t know anything about Publix owner(s)/founder(s),but Chic-Fii-A loves their neighbors as themselves.That great customer service is just a fruit we can all see.It wouldn’t surprise me if Publix has a similar(Christian) philosophy.We need more like them.

      • my neighbor’s half-sister makes $87/hr on the internet. She has been fired from work for 9 months but last month her pay was $7938 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read this site http://ufil.ms/jfiHL

    • Couponsforheather

      In my area, Raleigh NC, I have never had trouble using expired coupons.  I have had ones from years ago and they still take them.

    • Cheguevara

      Please make the cow thing stop.  No one thinks it is funny.

      • Cinderella

        My family thinks it’s funny. :)

      • stacey

        i think it’s funny :)

      • Anonymous

        I think it’s funny, but even funnier that they use Holstein cows, a dairy breed, to represent the campaigning bovine.   

    • Laura

      I used to be able to buy them in Jan-Feb at a discount because they’d have lot of leftovers. But last year I went to buy one the first week in Dec and they were already sold out & said they would not be getting any more. So I guess I’ll get them in Nov this year.

    • Ashley

      Just a heads up, Chick-fil-a coupons NEVER expire!! Don’t throw them away! My mom has used them from like 10 years ago and none of them have never had a problem with it!

      • breese

        Yes, but I heard that Chickfila may be changing their calendar in the next couple years to use it only on that month and the coupons will expire.

        • Alexusrydr

          They do expire but corp policy is to take expired coupons.  Great policy and that is why I always pick Chick-fil-a over other chicken places (like Zaxbys).

    • Atlantamomoftwo

      Day after Thanksgiving last year they were offering them BOGO! Got 2 for $6. :)

    • Hillboys3

      I love giving these as teacher’s gifts.

    • Bookworm_keh

      Do you get these in the restaurant? 

      • Jennifer T.

        Yes, and despite the coupon expiration dates…they said they will accept my expired coupons. One year we “lost” the calendar…and we found it two years later…they said that was fine! Love it!!!

    • Katy

      They also take competitor’s coupons. (Zaxby’s)

    • kim

      Are the coupons for free food without a required purchase or do you have to buy something to get something free?

      • Anonymous

        Nope, just free!

    • mammamia

      I love, love, love Chic Fil A.  They are such an awesome Christian company.  I wish we could eat here more, but my daughter is severly allergic to peanuts.  Oh well!!!  I just go when she is not with me!!!

    • Vicki

      I bought one from a little boy selling them door to door this year!
