McDonald's vouchers/coupons from CH (free food)
 
I just thought I'd post this up since I got these with my last 2 orders from Columbia House dvd club.

I don't know how long they've been sending them, but with the last account I opened (this week), and my first order from that account (2 shipments), I have received the coupons. I usually don't even look at those ads, I just pitch 'em in the trash.

They are included in the little packet of advertisements and such that come in the boxes with your dvds. The one box actually had two of them inside.
It is a folded paper coupon that is actually 2 coupons. Half of it is for a FREE Chicken Biscuit for breakfast, and the other half is for a FREE Chicken Sandwich for lunch or dinner.

Here is the disclaimer on the back of the coupons...
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Valid at participating McDonald's restaurants. Participation based on independant operator decision. Not valid in conjunction with any other offer, discount or combo meal. Cash value 1/20 of 1 cent. Limit one free item per coupon per person per visit. Coupon void if transferred, copied or duplicated in any way or transmitted via electronic media. Valid when product served. May not be valid on custom orders. 2008McDonald's. Expires 6/30/08.

I just thought this can be a nice little bonus on top of getting our dvds for great prices from CH. ;):D

Amazon is also sending these out. I've gotten like 13 in the last couple weeks lol

These are also in the packet of offers in shipments from the BMG CD club.

How do you open more than 1 account with columbia house im guessing you need multiple CC's correct?

No, you don't need multiple credit cards. Try asking you general questions about Ch is this thread -> http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=508198
You should be able to get better feedback there. There is also FAQ info in the first post of that thread. :)

I've also seen these coupons in a credit card statement or 2 recently. They're really marketing these things big time.

domino harvey 05-17-08 10:46 PM

Got these in Amazon orders

SMART-ASS 05-17-08 10:57 PM

I also forgot to mention... in that packet of advertisments/coupons that came with my CH dvds, there was another intersting ad.
I was an enrollment ad/card for the Disney Movie Club :eek: :D

BobO'Link 05-18-08 02:56 PM

^It's not really direct competition so why not? Disney won't let anyone else carry their titles so they can keep prices inflated for their own club. I believe the *best* average you can get there is ~$9.50/each. CH gets a small fee for including the form in the packet.

Found them in my Designer Checks junk mail.

movieguru 05-20-08 09:46 PM

just checked mine. almost forgot before throwing them out. I've got in 6 boxes of dvd's lately, mostly preorders from the b1g4. each envelope had 2 coupons for free chicken sandwiches. Not bad. I'm allergic to chicken but my wife will eat them. I've got a few more boxes coming, so I might get some more. I wonder if I threw some away.

SMART-ASS 05-20-08 10:05 PM

Not trying to be mean, but after you started writing about how excited you were to get all those coupons... then you said you were allergic to chicken... I almost fell out of my chair laughing :D:D

On another note, I got one of those ads/fliers in my snail-mail box to day. They come all the times ya know, it has several pages and is always falling apart and what not. There were MORE McDonald's coupons. This time they are BOGOfree. 6 different items like a Big Mac, breakfast McMuffin, ect...
I may use a couple of these coupons, but gee wiz, one can only stand so much McDonald's. Even if I did use all or most of the coupons, I wouldn't want to eat there again for MONTHS :D

chris_sc77 05-20-08 10:14 PM

Yeah I havnt had any fast food since Sept. 06 but I had to get a free chicken sandwich tonight. Pretty good actually.

basaro 05-21-08 12:53 PM

Last time I ate fast food was a long time ago, fall of 93 I think. I got so sick off a 1/4 lb w/cheese, combined with the fact I knew it was bad for me, I just never eat anywhere like that anymore.

But I got these today too, so I'll leave 'em out at work for anyone who snags them. :D

SMART-ASS 05-21-08 01:00 PM

So you've had absolutely no "fast food" for 15 YEARS???:eek::eek:...WOW!
I have to have some of the McD's famous french fries at least once a month. :D

basaro 05-21-08 01:20 PM

Yes, true, first I typed 03 by accident (hence the edit) and realized after it's been a hella long time! I've been good I guess. :D I think the fastest food I get is pizza or subs at a local place, nothing with a drive-thru. The only drive thru's I use are ATMs and very occasional coffee stops.

I probably already threw some of these away as I never look at any of the junk mail in the box, I just chuck it after I fish out my receipt. No great loss though ;)

SMART-ASS 05-21-08 02:02 PM

Seriously... my wife just got back from going to the bank and... that's right, free food from McDonald's :D. FREE Southwest Chicken Sandwich tastes yummy. :D

GMan2819 05-21-08 03:39 PM

Well..one McD's near me wouldn't take the coupon. Claimed only good at corporate owned McD's.

That's kind-of BS, since I'm pretty sure that even if it is a privately owned one, that they still get reimbursed for the coupons by corporate. The one by my house is not corporate owned and they are taking the coupons. I guess it is their perogative to not take the coupons, but I can't see it bodeing well for their repeat business.

from my understanding, neither corporate nor franchise stores get reimbursed for accepting coupons such as these. its just the cost of doing business i guess.

SMART-ASS 05-22-08 10:45 AM

LOL, of course they do.

SterlingBen 05-22-08 11:56 PM

Thanks for the heads up, I generally never check my junkmail

kenbenobi 05-27-08 07:53 PM

I received 2 letters stating my HD-DVD's were canceled from my order because they are no longer available. Inside each envelope was a set of McD's coupons.
