Here’s a deal to get you moo-ving: dress like a cow and get a FREE Chick-fil-A entree at locations nationwide on July 12th, including in New York City. It can be anything from a cow-spotted accessory, like a hat or bow-tie, or a full head-to-hoof costume.
The free Chick-fil-A entree offer is to celebrate the 12th annual Cow Appreciation Day, which surely is the most important day of the year on all our calendars.
Adult customers who dress in any type of cow attire will be rewarded with a Chick-fil-A free entrée of their choice. Choices include Original Chicken Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap or Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit.

Cow Appreciation Day celebrates the chain’s “Eat Mor Chikin®” Cow advertising campaign; an award-winning marketing campaign that is marking its 21st anniversary this year. None of those awards are from teachers or writers for encouraging proper spelling.
Chick-fil-A first introduced the Cow campaign in 1995 as a three-dimensional billboard concept depicting a black-and-white cow sitting atop the back of another cow painting the words “Eat Mor Chikin” on the billboard.
According to the company’s own press release, to everyone’s surprise, the cow’s clever self-preservation message would be the beginning of a campaign still running strong two decades later.
Cow Appreciation Day evnn has its own website, www.CowAppreciationDay.com and Facebook page, including for costume ideas, and a Snapchat filter so you can share your bovine wardrobe look with friends and family, but hopefully not with job recruiters and potential employers.
