KFC fans can get nine pieces of chicken for £3 by stacking Eat Out to Help Out with other discounts


FAST food fans can bag a nine piece bucket of fried chicken at KFC for £3 by stacking discounts.

Normally, you’ll pay around a tenner for that amount of chicken but you can save some serious cash by using two bargains on top of each other.

KFC fans can get some a bucket of chicken for £3 by stacking deals

The chain has signed up to the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme which sees the state pick up 50 per cent of the bill, up to £10 per head.

You can get the discount on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August and it can be used on top of other offers the restaurant is running.

Use it wisely and you can get some real bargains.

From June 30 until August 18 the fast food chain is running its chicken Tuesdays deal where fans can pick up a nine piece bucket for £5.99 once a week.

Typically, you can only buy sharing buckets from KFC that come with either six, 10 or 14 pieces of chicken.

A six piece bargain bucket will set you back around £11.99, 10 piece bucket costs £14.99 while a 14 piece meal cots £17.99.

Now, KFC has confirmed that the chicken Tuesday deal is included in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme too.

That means you’ll be able to bag the bucket half price for £3, saving you £2.99.

You will need to sit inside a restaurant though as the government discount can’t be applied to takeaways and deliveries, and KFC’s chicken Tuesdays offer is in-branch only.

The idea behind it is to encourage eateries that had previously been open for takeaways only to welcome back customers and bring back staff.

KFC now has 580 branches open for dine-ins – you can find the full list of restaurants taking part in the scheme here.

But fans have been left furious as some KFC branches have been accused of “ignoring” the Eat Out to Help discount.

If McDonald’s is more your thing, we reveal how you can get a Big Mac and fries for just a £1 buy stacking deals.

In fact, bargain hunter Jordon Cox has put together his meal plans that shows how you can eat out three times a day for under a fiver all-in by taking advantage of a range of offers, including the scheme.

The Chancellor hopes the incentive will also get Brits dining out in pubs, restaurants and cafes to boost the hospitality industry.

Currently, around two thirds of employees in the sector remain out of work, either on furlough or they’ve been let go.

Thousands of food outlets have registered with the scheme – you find where to get the discount in your local area with the postcode checker.

You should also lookout for the posters in shop windows that let you know you can get money off the bill.

The scheme kicked off yesterday with hundreds of Brits starting off the week with half price breakfasts.
